We had a fabulous time on our tour. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, the bus driver was very good. Even on the snowy, iced up roads that day I always felt safe with his driving. The boat was great, smooth, the tour and meeting the captain was fun. Floating in the life saving suits was awesome, what an experience! Lunch buffet was very good, nice choice of dishes. The entire tour was very organized, fun and an unique experience.
Fabulous experience - transport was good. Icebreaker and swimming a once in a lifetime opportunity and all brilliant . Scenery beautiful. The lunch at the Swedish restaurant was traditional and delicious in beautiful riverfront setting, positioned on the Swedish side of the river looking into Finland. Everything about the day was fantastic
I did not receive a meeting time different from we booked with Get your guide. Remember to bring enough clothes, it is very cold. Suggest that Get your guide should alert the customer one week before the event date, As the visitors most of them came far away and pay a big amount of the program
First of all, thanks to our guide named SHIARCA (but I'm not sure if you write it like this) for his kindness, patience, professionalism and SMILE, then everything else is wonderful (of course if you paid a little less it would be even more beautiful)
Unique and perfectly organized experience. Highly recommended!
