Hi FloridaTourist_12 This tour was not held by Helsinki Walking Tours, as we do not have guides Mike and Ana, and we did not have a tour at this time. Hope you enjoyed Helsinki though! Best, Tafu

Had a great tour on a sunny day, very informative with super nice guides. Takes about 2h and definitely worth it if you want a brief overview about the city and its history.

We took both of the tours and had a blast - I've lived in Helsinki for some time but I was surprised time and again by our guides' knowledge. Learned a lot of new things, enjoyed being outdoors and walking as well as had fun!
