Hello Green Capsters!

It’s been a great and busy summer for us. I want to thank all the customers that joined our tours and the staff that has been giving their best all year long. Thank you! This group effort that has significantly improved your rating in TripAdvisor. Currently we are number 1 in category of Food & Drink in Helsinki. Looks like we are doing things right:)

Especially our Free Walking Tour and Mental Walks – in Lapinlahti psychiatric hospital has gained a lot of popularity this summer. I’m happy to say that both of these tours will continue all year round.

(UPDATE 22th Oct) Yesterday we had a record audience on the Mental Walk – tour. We sold out thee consecutive starts. This was largely effect of a great review and a story in the biggest newspaper in Finland. Here is the link to the story: https://www.hs.fi/nyt/art-2000005416110.html
