Paolo knows the city and is able to answer all questions. He is flexible with tour set up and is available on a short notice. He is good and honest guy, I would use him again.

Hi everyone, We have a tour booked in Tallin and in Helsinki with Paulo. We believe in tipping one for their services but not if it is considered an insult to ones culture or beliefs. Reading online in various areas in regard to tipping in Finland it is considered rude to offer one a tip. Has anyone tipped Paulo or the other guides on these tours? Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Paul & Denise Overmyer
