Great tour with Kasper (just as friendly as the ghost!) He is clearly very knowledgeable about Helsinki and included quite a bit of good humour in his tour. A shame the rain caught us before the end but we saw everything.

Only thing to improve is possibly talk a bit louder and interact with the group a bit more, keeping everyone close together. Highly recommend.
