The highlight of my trip. Learned so much from an extremely knowledgeable and communicative guide. Want to live in Helsinki now. It has had a fascinating history and is looking forward to the future.

Both educational and fun. Architecture and urban planning during a three-hour walk gave us meat on the bones around the city of Helsinki. We thank our guide Emek who was a real knowledge bank.

Emec is so knowledgeable about architecture in Helsinki and what determined it’s character. He’s very articulate! Such a joy to listen to. This tour is top notch!
