July 2015

"It was a Sunday in Helsinki. Our guide Alexandra gave us a great tour and insight into the history and modern lifestyle of the Finns. There was a market down on the seafront, where we enjoyed salmon soup and the sweetest strawberries imaginable. Then a contrasting view of the country - out to Seurasaari, a park where historic wooden buildings have been assembled in an outdoor museum and a stop-off to see Sibelius monument. We are glad we signed up with Alla for local tours and can totally recommend the service we received."
