    DO NOT BOOK this tour!! It is extremely overpriced! 305 Euros for myself, my husband, and my 8 year old. It was not even 2 hours and we only visited 3 places. As per the inclusions on the description we were to try different sausages and we were also supposed to be treated to

    Response from travel_vigen, Manager at Helsinki Food Tour Including Tastings
    Responded Jul. 25, 2019
    Dear Crystal, thank you for your feedback. I have contacted the guide - he is an authorized official Helsinki guide, as all our guides are. Kindly let me clarify some points with you: you said that the tour was less then 2 hours, while guide told me you have started a bit earlier - at 11:23 instead if 11:30 and ended precisely at 13:30, as it should be. So the tour was like 7 mins longer, then it is in the description, am I right? The second point - the tastings. In description we have inclusions: Food tasting & Glass of sparkling wine or juice. Food tastings are local cheese, fish and meat on the old market, shrimp toast and sparkling wine in a famous Kapelli restaurant (they call it champagne, but technically it is a sparking wine) and Fazer chocolate shop with sweets tasting. It seems like quite enough tastings, but we are working on adding more options for the next season. Regarding the champagne and different sausages - it turns out to be an old description on the TripAdvisor and we have a different one on the Viator (they are connected platforms) - so by the internal error the description wasn't updated on the TripAdvisor after the Viator's one. We need to fix it for sure. We also haven't heard from you regarding your food preferences - so we didn't have a chance to replace fish on our food tour for the young lady. All tastings are prebooked with the local suppliers and sometimes, specially, during the high season they don't have a chance to change something during the food tour. Nevertheless we apologies that out tour didn't met your expectations and would be happy to fix it with other tours we offer in Finland, Sweden, Denmark or Norway. Hope you had a nice time in Helsinki. Warm regards, Alisa from Easy Travel team
