Helsinki has been my home town for 34 years, although my roots are in Northern Finland, close to the Arctic circle - with a swedish speaking mother!
I am a kind, friendly person with a good sense of humor - important qualities - and you will feel comfortable with me.
I am very patriotic, history is my passion. Besides being informative, I need to feel that you enjoy the tour to the fullest. It is about having a great time together !
I have a selection of tours, still everything is adjusted to your needs and wishes and can be customized.
Let's eat local, visit historical places, take a cruise among Europe's largest archipelago, and just enjoy our beautiful nature as Europe's most forested country. Let's hike in the forests, pick mushrooms (in autumn), or just take my car and head for adventures in local areas!
I started doing my tours in Spain, Turkey and Thailand, just to find out that the grass is so much greener here in this beautiful, clean and safe country!
A Recent Review of this guide
We had a very interesting and fun tour with Laila today. Thank you so much for showing us around Helsinki. We all loved listening to you. You are very knowledgeable and fun. You gave us a tour of the local perspective which we very much enjoyed. We also loved the restaurant recommendation - elk meat and salmon - delicious. Thank you and all the best, Michaela
I have worked as an official guide in Helsinki for 14 years. Barcelona, Bangkok, Istanbul, Albena- cities where I have worked as a tour guide led me to this path to work as a guide in my precious home country where I feel safe.
My history as a flight attendant in Finnair, has given me the opportunity to understand and respect other cultures, which I do treasure so much.
I am an authorized Suomenlinna and Oodi library guide as well, I keep annually up with First Aid skills and I am an experienced driver. Some of my tours are made by a rental car or a minibus with me as the driver.
During winter season there might be some delays in traffic.
