I wrote a review here but I got an email saying that the company got it removed, as they obviously did not like my honest feedback. The excuse was that it did not have enough detail and were not sure that it was for the correct company. Therefore, I will write again. So I

Hi Thank you for your honest feedback. I'm terribly sorry to hear that our tour didn't meet your expectation. I assume that you are actually talking about Free Walking Tour - Not Private Custom Helsinki Tour as this review has marked. However, no matter the tour - we have to do better. Providing true value to all our customers is paramount for us. We take feedback seriously and will make the measures necessary to fix the issues you mentioned in the review. We have just recruited new guides and we will go this through with them. Anyway, we hope you good summer and wish that you could give us another change sometime later. With Sincere Regards
