Mike S.

Helsinki, uusima, Finland

I am a native (British) tour guide, with several years experience of tour guiding in Helsinki.

I very much work on the basis of "a knowledgeable friend, giving you a personal and guided tour of the city".

Born in the UK, I visited Helsinki whilst on holiday around 5 years ago. I immediately fell in love with the city. Within a month, I found myself renting a flat, and starting a job here as a tour guide - showing people around this amazing city. 5 years later, I'm still here - and still just as much in love with Helsinki.
I have a lot of experience in showing tourists around the city, and I know a lot of the "hidden gems" that one would normally not discover themselves.

I have a passion for History, Architecture, Design and discovering new places in Helsinki. You are therefore in safe hands. I genuinely love this city, and I show this to my customers when they join my guided tours. I have a girlfriend with very much the same interests as me, however, she is also very interested in Design and Russian history. She often joins me for the guided tours, and naturally, she brings added knowledge with her. Between us, we love to discover new places in Helsinki that we haven't yet seen, visit museums, get out and about in the Finnish nature, and to learn about History.

A guided tour by car (up to 7 passengers) in and around Helsinki, over a time period to suit you can be arranged. If one of my tours doesn't suit your needs, then feel free to suggest a customized tour that better suits your requirements.

I look forward to showing you this wonderful city.

Restrictions

I often have requests surrounding a guided tour of Suomenlinna island. As the Island is a UNESCO heritage site, it is not permitted to give guided tours. I am however happy to accompany you to the island and to take a relaxing walk with you.
