Christina was an outstanding guide, very witty and willing to teach us all the quirkiness that there is in the Finnish spirit. I was thoroughly entertained and much better informed about Helsinki and Finland after going on her tour!

The tour itself was great, however we only found the group 30 minutes later. The email we had received had the wrong starting point and there were a lot of people (like us) waiting for the tour guide. Please have someone there redirecting the group next time.

Response from Red Umbrella Tours Helsinki:

Hello Katherine! I'm really not sure why this group didn't find the tour.. We haven't had any problems at all for the last few months and nothing has changed - we haven't changed the meeting point, nor the confirmation emails we send before the tour. For clarification, the tour starts in the area around the Havis Amanda statue at the Christmas Market. (it's only about 50 sq meters so a very small space). We are very happy however that you did enjoy the tour! :)

Tour guide didn’t turn up, nor did company respond to message asking if still happening. Wouldn’t recommend at all.

Response from Red Umbrella Tours Helsinki:

Hello Rachel! It seems you may have turned up to the wrong place. A group of 25 people managed to find the guide.. There is a small Christmas market at the Havis Amanda statue, so perhaps the group were standing behind a stall (you can see our photos). We would recommend therefore to look around the stalls to find the guide and group - It is a very small area, only about 50 metres. :) We hope that you had a nice time in Helsinki none-the-less and if you are still here today then of course you are more than welcome to join!
