Customer feedback


Gostaria de lhe agradecer por todo o seu trabalho profissional. Você nós proporcionou dois dias muito agradáveis e nos mostrou tudo que estava contratado.

Quanto ao seu convívio conosco foi maravilhoso ficarmos num barzinho, conversando e brincando, todos gostaram muito da sua companhia.

Para finalizar o outro momento importante foi toda a sua atenção para com o problema da Claudia. Voce foi sensacional, graças a você não tivemos problemas em continuar a nossa viagem, não precisamos alterar o nosso roteiro. A Claudia ficou muito feliz com todo o seu trabalho.
Seremos eternamente gratos por tudo e o que você precisar quando estiver aqui em Fortaleza ou quando precisar de um depoimento sobre o seu trabalho, estarei a sua disposição.

Fique em paz 

Muito obrigada

Paulos Tours

“More than just a guide - a friend!”

Arriving from Germany the day before, we were looking forward to our 3 hour guided trip around Helsinki - especially after reading so many positive reviews on Tripadvisor. Of course we were also a bit nervous - could Paulo live up to all the positive reviews we had read?

From the moment Paulo picked us up at the hotel we knew we were in for something special. His friendly nature positively lit up the rather overcast Helsinki and we knew we had found a new friend. Paulo drove us around Helsinki and I don't think he stopped talking the whole time. Paulo knows so much about the city it is an amazing and educational experience.

In particular, Paulo provides a unique perspective on Helsinki and the Finns. Through his Portuguese background he can explain things that you as a tourist will notice from the moment you land in Helsinki. And one thing is immediately clear - Paulo loves the city and the people.

We visited all the sights and when we stopped - Paulo jumped out of the van with us and showed us into the rock church, the Sibelius monument or around the Olympic stadium.

It is also worth mentioning that Paulo speaks great English and replied very quickly to any email questions. He even sent a friendly "weather outlook" email the week before our trip.

If you are looking for more than the standard tourist experience - don't hesitate. Paulo is the best!

Hi Paulo

We are finally home from our travels and wanted to thank you our great tour of Helsinki. I don't think you stopped talking from the moment we stepped into the van till the moment you dropped us back at the are a total mine of information but still managed to keep it interesting and never boring. The van was really comfortable and easy to enter and leave which is important when you are hopping in and out to see the sights all day. We really enjoyed our day with you and will definitely recommend your company.

Thanks again

Paulo - Thank you so much for the tour of Helsinki. I very much appreciated you working with my tight schedule and providing a detailed tour of this truly remarkable city. Thanks as well for accepting the tour even though it was snowing and just a few short weeks from the Christmas holiday! Your insights during the tour opened my eyes to the history, architecture and geography that make Helsinki such a special place. Your comprehension of the nuanced differences in American and Finnish culture made it all the more memorable and exciting for me. I fully recommend your tour to anyone seeking a safe, knowledgeable and professional guide with meticulous attention to customer service. Thanks again for everything. If I ever get back, I will definitely contact you again so that I can learn even more!

"Paulo we are finally home, and wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed and appreciated your comprehensive tour of Helsinki and Porvoo. More importantly, we appreciated your flexibility at working with our tight schedule. When we called the major tour operator in Helsinki, they were not interested in our need for a personal tour guide, at a short notice. Thank goodness we found you!
You were the most enlightened, interesting, funny tour guide we have ever met in all our years of travelling."

"My first trip to Helsinki was memorable because I toured with Paulo.  I had never been to Finland and didn't know what to expect.  As a last minute booking, Paulo responded in a timely and professional manner.  I unreservedly recommend him to anyone who looks for wholesomely wonderful customer service oriented experience.  It was a wonderul experience touring Helsinki and Porvoo with Paulo.  Paulo's tour is definitely a do-over when I have a chance to see more of Finland!"

"Dear Paulo,

Again, many many thanks for the wonderful tour to Helsinki and Porvoo. Even though Beth and I have been to Helsinki before (me, many times), your tour was enjoyable and insightful. My sister-in-law and her husband, who are first-time Finland visitors, enjoyed EVERYTHING your tour included. We learned a lot, experienced new sights, and had a wonderful, fun time. I recommend your tour services without hesitation!! Attached are several photos from our time together. All the best and good luck with the new baby!! Hope all goes well. (PS: we did avanto in Turku 8 times and also went to the Nantaali Kylpylä and rolled in the snow!)"

"Estimado Paulo,

uma palavrinha para lhe agradecer o excelente tour que fez connosco em Helsinquia e Porvoo no passado domingo.  Continue assim, que terá certamente sucesso. Já falámos em si aos nossos amigos que costumam viajar. Pelo nosso lado, já regressámos todos à nossa rotina profissional.

Desejando-lhe saúde e muito sucesso pessoal e profissional no futuro."

Melhores cumprimentos,

"Deb & I would like to thank you for the great job you did as our tour guide and driver in Helsinki and Porvoo. You went at a pace that was adapted to suit us. Were extremely knowledgeable about the local sites, culture and even shared many of your own unique experiences which really enlightened our trip. Every stop was carefully planned with always much consideration given to our time, restroom needs etc. We have had tour guides in 20 countries and have found none finer and more professional than YOU! "

"Thank you for a great tour of Helsinki. All of us really enjoyed it."

Eileen Gonzales, 23rd October 2009


"I just wanted to let you know how well our tour went, and thank you for arranging it. We had a great time and thought you were very knowledgeable and pleasant, and we loved Helsinki. The only complaint we had was that the ship left too soon, but maybe that will be a good reason for us to return some day. Thanks very much."
