The three of us had a super nice tour with a competent Turkish guide. His love for Helsinki was very interesting to us. He has years of experience that he can compare with other cities. It brings its absolute highlight at the end. We can only recommend to get an insight into Finland!

Emek is so knowledgeable and meanwhile interesting. He knows everything. There's not a boring moment in the trip. It was -15 degree Celsius that day but Emek took care of us, he adjusted the trip to the most comfortable way and we enjoyed it a lot.

Great tour! Doing it by tram covers a greater area of the city. Our guide Emek - with his deep knowledge of a city planner - explained us the history and the specific’s and background of the different neighborhoods. I can not recommend him enough!

Entertaining and interesting tour of Helsinki. Individual requests are catered for. The guide is also able to answer individual questions at any time.

Emek , our guide was very knowledgeable, pleasant and keen to tell us all about Helsinki and Finland
