Our guide Emek was very friendly and experienced. Tour was done at a leisurely pace. Could ask a lot of questions including ones not directly connected with the tour itself. Emek was very helpful.

Emek is an excellent tour guide. He is very knowledgeable and he went above and beyond to help me. I had injured my ankle and he always checked on me to see how I was doing.

Emek was brilliant. Really knowledgeable about the history, architecture and culture of Finland. It was a great introduction to the City and tailored to my interests.
