Helsinki Old Town Porvoo Excursion Reviews

Porvoo is a quaint village dating back to 1346. Walk the cobblestone streets and stop for photos at the Old Bridge of Porvoo, which offers magnificent views of the town. Explore on your own or perhaps browse one of the many small handicraft shops.
The highlight of the tour is the visit to the local farm that raises horses.

The highlight of the tour is the visit to the local farm that raises horses. The scenary and family there are amazing and very kind. Other than that we went to Porvoo but it rained and we really couldn't enjoy it. Finally we stopped at the main square for a picture stop which was nice. In the end we had a good time but the time at the port is to short. Read Less

Visited the old town and also Malmgard Manor.
Sail Date: July 2019
Visited the old town and also Malmgard Manor. The latter was more interesting than Porvoo as the Manor has a long history, the tour is conducted by the Count himself, and they give you beer samples.

Porvoo is a wonderful old fishing village outside of Helsinki. It's very picturesque and has a small market and lots of shops and cafes. The ice cream is great and there is also one of the oldest continuously operating chocolatiers (free samples!), The cathedral on the hill is unique and was destroyed and rebuilt many time. Lunch is included at a charming 18th century manor house and working farm. This tour also stops at the Rock Church on the way back through Helsinki. This is a unique church that has been cut out of a granite outcropping. Definitely worth seeing. Read Less

Really enjoyed the morning! The Drive was scenic and the village worth visiting. We enjoyed the included morning tea. We had done our research and headed out of the old town and up a nearby hill where there are site of historical significance and great views. The walk back along the water was glorious! We still had plenty of time to get a good look around the village. We had one stop in central Helsinki and my only disappointment is that the Drive didn't swing past the Sebelius monument and Rock Church to give us a glimpse! Read Less
