Customer's Opinions about guide from Helsinki, Finland
We had a wonderful time with Jussi during our one-day visit to Helsinki. He looked after each one of our group (ranging in age from 11 to 76). He picked us up from the cruise terminal in his comfortable van, had a printed itinerary ready for each of us, and did a great job keeping to the schedule without rushing us. While he drove he explained the history and geography of Finland, and gave us many interesting facts about life in Finland. We now know there are almost as many saunas in Finland as there are Finns! We mainly wanted to visit Ainola, and Jussi suggested we stop at Porvoo as well - and indeed it was beautiful. We then visited the many city sites in Helsinki including the wonderful Rock Church. We could have toured Helsinki by ourselves, but it would have been impossible to also visit Ainola and Porvoo in the time that we had. Having Jussi also meant we got to "know" Helsinki and Finland a lot better. I hope many more visitors will get to enjoy his expert guidance. Thank you Jussi!
Jussi provided an excellent tour to our group. He is a very knowledgeable guide.
Jussi was our tour guide in Helsinki and Parvoo. It was a wonderful and personal experience to be shown his beautiful city. He arranged a surprise visit to one of his colleagues homes in Parvoo--A true look into living in Finland. Thanks so much for the perfect tour.
I had a 2 day trip with Jussi and 4 work colleagues of mine. Jussi had been extremely helpful in planning phase - recommending even hotel options for the night. We started from Tampere, spent the night near Porvoo and finished the trip in Helsinki. Jussi had excellent recommendations for sights, we enjoyed all the places, including towns, castles, museums of famous architects, saunas, churches, nice views and nature. The farm house he recommended for the night was just perfect for us. He was very punctual, his minivan easily fitted the six of us, and he knows the Helsinki-Tampere area very well. The weekend trip was very effortless from our side, thanks to Jussi. I can sincerely recommend him as a tour guide.
Jussi was a great guide. He is professional and well prepared. Jussi provided a program printed specifically for our day that gave specifics about his country and detailed our agenda for the day.
The areas we requested to see were great and he suggested an additional event that added to our experience in Finland
Jussi did an AWESOME job for us. My mother and mother-in-law (both in their 80's) raved about how knowledgable and patient he was. He met them at the cruise ship with a written itinerary that included interesting facts about Helsinki and customized the tour of Helsinki and Porvoo to meet their needs (neither can walk particularly far). The lunch and coffee spots he selected were also charming. He was their favorite among the private guides we selected for our Baltic cruise tours.
We recently spent a wonderful day touring Helsinki with our guide Jussi. We cannot say enough good things about Jussi and would highly recommend everyone visiting Helsinki to use his services.
Helsinki is a beautiful city and Jussi knows all of the sights and how to show them off.
We had a delightful day and will fondly remember Jussi and Helsinki for many years to come.
Jussi is a professional, friendly and very knowledgable guide.
From the smaller details like the pickup at the airport through the itinerary everything was to the highest standard.
We all had a wonderful time and learned a lot about Finland and Helsinki.
It was everything Jussi said it would be and it was done to a Five star standard. We would recommend Jussi to anyone looking for a top notch guide.
Jussi gave my wife and I a 7 hour private tour of Helsinki and Porvoo last week. Jussi was an excellent guide--very knowledgable and a pleasure to spend the day with. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a private guide in Helsinki.
We would highly recommend Jussi as a guide. He was professional, knowledgeable and very easy to be with on our tour.
Jussi was an excellent guide and we are fully satisfied with the tour we arranged-He catered well to our needs especially with our 2 kids in our party of 7
We highly recommend him

We had a private tour with Jussi in 2013, all day around Helsinki. I must say we really enjoyed it. We have hired private guides now in several countries and I think we have learned so much more than in a crowded tourist buses. We had been to Helsinki a few times, so we didnīt want to see the same typical touristic sites but we wanted something more special. We like art, so we actually went to art auction exhibitions and met a real known artist in his studio. We saw Gallen-Kallela museum and many other interesting special places where we would never have gone with tourist groups. Jussiīs English is excellent, he has lived abroad and well traveled. We enjoyed the time and had a good time.
I can know more about Helsinki with the help of the professional excursion guided by Jussi. He told us what we were interested in but not the facts about this or that style in which this or that building was built, for example:) Thanks a lot. I can advice everyone to travel in Finland with Jussi
Country, as any other country, I thought before about Finland. BUT first of all Helsinki amazed me! its architecture! Delightful little streets... I felt as I were in a fairy-tale! The atmosphere was calm and carefree, quiet and mysterious. It took my breath away.
Jussi was magnificent. There were no problems. He knew his work to a nicety and knew so many interesting facts about his country and Helsinki.
Jussi was perfect! he planned our excursion in Helsinki so talented! we didn't waste any time. we saw everything that only we wanted. I will advise to all my friends to be guided by Jussi if one day they are in Helsinki. Jussi knows many not boring facts and his excursions are not dull! Thank you once more!
