Join this small-group walking tour to explore Helsinki, the capital of the country that consumes most coffee, has a world-famous education model and crazy popular karaoke scene. I will be happy to answer your questions about our way of life and cultural habits. I was born and raised here, and I want you to get a real feeling of Helsinki, not just the touristic one. You'll learn about Finland's politics, past and present. We'll also discuss the Finnish language, is it really that difficult to learn? On Market Square, we'll talk about Finnish gastronomy and see the largest Orthodox Cathedral in Northern Europe. By the end, we'll see the award-winning library Oodi. You'll get to feel the unique Helsinki state of mind and get a clear idea of our quite peculiar culture. Why is a sauna so important for us? What is the "Unicorn Block" of Helsinki? Why is there a statue of a Russian Czar in the most famous square of Helsinki? Let's discover how unique Helsinki really is!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a delightful tour! Jonna was generous with her time and information-- she tailored the walk to aspects the group was most interested in, readily paused to talk to us about sites/thing we asked about, and kept the discussion very lively. She is very skilled at presenting both the history of the city as well as the current attitudes and behaviors of the Finns. So happy we booked this tour!

Jonna was both informative and entertaining. I liked that she limits the group to 8. Jonna made the experience feel very personal and intimate, with questions encouraged on a wide group of topics. She is a wealth of knowledge and helped us better understand Finland overall and Helsinki in particular.

Jonna was a first class guide. Sharing plenty of interesting information about Finland and Helsinki, she made the whole walk around the city very enjoyable. Funny at times, but, importantly, she was knowledgeable about the ins and outs of her country. Would highly recommend Jonna!

Jonna gave us a wonderful tour around city center. She began with a brief history of Finn history and it’s role in modern Finn culture. In addition to key areas on the itinerary, she explained how streets have Finnish & Swedish names which made it interesting. She recommended numerous restaurants, bars and other local ways to enjoy the view without running out of Euros.

Hi! We were in Helsinki only for three days and the first day at 10 we started with HELSINKI WALKING TOUR. It was a pretty good decision because from the very beginning of our stay we could learn about the city. And from minute zero we knew we were in good hands: Jonna is such a friendly girl! The information she gave was interesting, informative and entertaining! The time flew by!
We highly recommend the tour!

A wonderful tour! A lot was packed into the walk but it was very relaxed at the same time. The guide was very flexible and interesting. I would highly recommend that you do the tour on your first day to get a sense for the city. The guide is top notch and the tour is a great introduction

Jonna's tour was perfect. Unfortunately for her, but lucky for us, the other participants could not make it, so we had her all to ourselves. She showed us so many things we would never have seen without her guidance. We spent a lovely couple of hours with her. I highly recommend this small personal tour.

Very friendly tour guide with a good sense of humour. Gave us both interesting historical information, and useful local tips (eg, which lesser-known cafes were the best to visit). Answered any questions from the group with enthusiasm and detail.

Would highly recommend to everyone holidaying in Helsinki!

Absolutely a fantastic experience. We simply cannot say enough wonderful praises of Jonna and her tour. She shared so much of the history and cool information about sites and such. We then took the hike through the forest with her the next day which was also fantastic. For a couple of travelers who knew nothing, this was the way to go. Highly recommended!!!

Jonna does a terrific job of showing off the key sites with useful commentary, covering both the usual data and some opinion and context. She was very entertaining and engaged. The pace of the tour was perfect (not too fast or too slow in my opinion). Price is very reasonable. This is a great way to get started in Helsinki (which is a terrific city with much to see).
