City Highlights Tour

I booked with Arja a few days before our arrival in Helsinki and she was quick to respond to my request. We had an amazing tour with Arja and her husband, Timo. Picked up on time, saw lots of sites, interesting stories. They went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and having a good time. The day ended with sauna and a swim. Perfect ending to a fun day. Thank you Arja and Timo.

Hey Janet, thanks for the lovely review, good to meet you both! Hope to see you back in Helsinki one day; it would be wonderful to take you to a traditional Finnish sauna by a lake in summer. All the best! -Arja
