When looking for tours in Helsinki, there were lots to choose from, so I took a stab at it. This was an excellent choice, as the guide was super-friendly, her information was comprehensive, and we covered some really great parts of Helsinki. If they take you to a little place that smells like cinnamon, get the cinnamon roll. It's delicious. Be prepared to get some walking in on this tour, though. Especially since the fortress doesn't really have any vehicles to drive you around.
The best from this tour is the guide. Mini is very friendly, even though she is not originally from Finland, her knowledge about the country is beyond. It is really a good one day tour if you guys only stay for a couple nights.
Having Mini as my guide made this worth it! rather than solo touring She was more informed than expected and eager to pass on the knowledge complete with historical events, social and political evolution within Finland, and rarely told insights into Finnish culture garnered over the 7 odd years she has been living there. Of course, Helsinki itself and Suomenlinna are beautiful in themselves and steeped in the heritage and birth of modern day Finland - well worth a visit regardless of the season. I will be back.
Glad I took this tour that covers the interesting spots I just wanted to see during my short stay in Helsinki. Lily our friendly tour guide was knowledgeable in the history of Helsinki and Soumenlinna. I had a great time.
