Private tour guide Ralf

Ralf L.

Espoo, Finland

I have worked since 2001 as an authorized guide in Helsinki.

I am fascinated about modern Finland and what we have achieved as a country with 5 million people in technology as well as with art. Naturally history is important to understand where we are today. These are things I enjoy to tell visitors.

In 2004 I was proude to have been elected best tour guide in Helsinki. But I know quite a few other places in Finland too so going out of Helsinki is no problem for me. You are welcome to make request for tours that are not included on my pages and I will be happy to make a customised tour for you. So when you look at my published tours and you can not find exactly the one you would like to make please tell me. I can do.

Tours in French, Spanish and German, Swedish; no problem !
Naturally in English too.

You are always welcome to Finland!

Be my guest.

I am authorized guide in Helsinki and born in Finland. 2004 I was elected best guide in Helsinki by Helsinki Experts, an incoming agency in Helsinki. I studied economics and have a BS.Econ degree so I am fairly good with the Finnish economics too.
