Fan Friendly Booking Process

Due to the Global environment over the last two years, we have reduced the regular Deposit amount and have eased our Cancellation Policy to simplify the booking process for you. This tour requires a $500.00 deposit per person that can be canceled free of charge up until July 21, 2022. Name changes (substitute traveler) will be permitted FREE of charge until 7 days prior to departure.   The final balance is due July 21, 2022.  Log onto your account to set-up weekly or monthly payments if desired. Our full Terms and Conditions are available for your review during the booking process.


We recommend all fans consider adding travel insurance. Customers will need to make their own travel insurance arrangements. During the Fan Tour booking process, the opportunity to add travel insurance will be offered to American residents via a third-party travel insurance provider Travelex (travelex.com). Note the "Travel Select Plan" offered through Travelex is the only travel insurance plan that allows a "Cancel For Any Reason" upgrade to the plan (NOTE: We fully recommend travel insurance). This upgrade lets you cancel for any reason --whatever it may be -- up to 48 hours prior to your scheduled departure date and provides reimbursement up to 50% of your insured trip costs.

Description of Add-on Tours (Optional)

Finnish Food Tour:   Your tour will start in front of the Old Market Hall (Vanha kauppahalli), where you will receive a great overview about the local cuisine. You can sense the aromas of cured salmon, local cheese and smoked reindeer among others. After that your guide will share with you some local tips at the Market Square (Kauppatori). On this approximately two-hour tour, we will stroll the most beautiful streets of Helsinki center like Esplanadi and Bulevardi, pass through the Design District Helsinki as well as the idyllic art nouveau neighborhood of Punavuori to finish the tour at the Hietalahti Market Hall. While there you can enjoy an after-tour lunch or go shopping for organic and local food delicacies. On the way you will get a taste of local specialties from selected specialty stores where you will have the chance to sample local fish, reindeer, salmiakki (Finnish salt liquorice), chocolate, cheese, fresh bread and healthy treats with good vitamins. At all the stops you will have time for food souvenir shopping. 


Helsinki Beer Tour:  Helsinki, “the White City of the North”, has a lot to offer. This tour will combine sightseeing with a local favorite: beer! Finland has a lively microbrewery and craft beer scene, with passionate brewers that put all their effort into making really good quality beer. We will spend time exploring the city and its sights from the historical center around the Senate Square and Esplanadi boulevard to our modern center Kamppi – and in between we have three stops at local breweries where you will get to sample their specialties and hear their part of the story. And in case you don’t like beer, we will be happy to substitute it with ciders or non-alcoholic beverages for you. Please let us know in advance.
