I am a professional Helsinki Tourist Guide qualified to guide throughout the whole of Helsinki providing quality private tours customised to your requirements.
In a previous life I was a tour guide in Greece, Spain and Italy so I am more than experienced with both large and small groups. I am especially interested in Scandinavian history, art, architecture, design, Jean Sibelius, cycling, hiking, meeting people and. . . . sauna!
My tours can be tailored to suit your needs and interests. Day trips to medieval city of Porvoo, surrounding countryside or the National Park of Nuuksio can also be arranged on request. I am positive and friendly. I enjoy meeting new people and do everything I can to help guests to make the most of their visit in Helsinki. I have been told by guests on my tours that I have a great sense of humour and really know my stuff! I hope you will agree with them. If you are an elderly person or have children with you, no problems, we will discover Helsinki "your" way together.
If you are looking for a local guide to provide you with an informative, entertaining and affordable private tour of Helsinki, look no further! Contact me and I can help ensure you have a memorable visit to Finland!
See you soon -you're most welcome to Helsinki!
A Recent Review of this guide
Arja was a superb tour guide for our bucket list trip to Helsinki. We showed us the key sites and was considerate of physical limitations. She had a driver which enabled her to focus on the narrative. Arja was quite knowledgeable and personal. We highly recommend Arja as a tour guide.

I want to give you my undivided attention so I do not drive.
I can accompany you in your vehicle or I can arrange for a separate car and a driver.
