As you wish! Make the most of your time in Helsinki, brief as it may be.
We drive and walk around the main highlights of Helsinki, established 450yrs ago. Let us also have a culinary test of Finnish food and drinks.
As a native person I can show you "specialities", outside a normal sightseeing tour. We can, 24/7, adapt the tour according to your timetable.
Few things are difficult or impossible!
We see and experience one of Europe's biggest Old Towns in Russian Empire-style, from the Russian era 1809 - 1917.
Close by are the ice breaker ships and the Uspenski cathedral, the biggest orthodox church in Western Europe.
We visit the Market Place including the shopping area at the Esplanade Park, from where you have a view to the sea fortress Suomenlinna/Sveaborg, built 250yrs ago during the Swedish realm.
The unique Rock Church blasted into the bedrock + the Sibelius monument along our long coastline and park drive is worthwhile.
There is time for a culinary sampling of Finnish food and drinks.
