Very satisfied with the hotel, guide and rail arrangements made by Firebird Tours.

The guides arranged for us in four Finnish cities were excellent, as were the rail reservations and connections. The hotels arranged for us in the larger cities were also excellent. Overall, we were well-satisfied with the role that Firebird Tours played in our travel in Finland.
