Laila loves her country and she shares her love and passion not only through her beautiful smile but also with her wide knowledge. Thanks to her itinerary we saw Helsinki with different eyes, walked through areas we would not have thought about looking at. we were 8 people from 25 to 60 and all had a lot of fun. Thank you very much Laila for your enthusiasm and joy.
