Really great Helsinki walking tour

Emek was a great tour guide. He was really relaxed and flexible, adapting and reponding to the interests of our small group. He was incredibly knowledgeble and we learned so many interesting facts about local culture and history. We usually take the tip-based free tours but this one is well worth the fee. Really nice guy.

A great way to see Helsinki

I had an amazing tour with Emek. He's really knowledgeable about the history of Helsinki and Finnish culture as well as really friendly. It was really an interesting way of kicking off my Finland tour and helped me get an understanding of the layout of the city. He showed me a lot of the highlights that you'd expect to see, but he spent a lot of time talking about this history, architecture and the significance of the buildings. He also showed me some things that I wouldn't have noticed if he hadn't have pointed them out. It's definitely worth taking a couple hours to do this tour, even if you're not a big urban planning or architecture fan. You'll learn a lot!
