Laila P.

Helsinki, Finland

Welcome to Helsinki, the capital of Finland! Helsinki has been my home town for 34 years although my roots are in Northern Finland with a Swedish mother!

I am a kind, friendly person with a good sense of humor - important qualities in everything you do in life.
I am very patriotic, history is my passion. Besides being informative, I need to feel you to enjoy and smile during our tour, it is about having a great time together as well!

I have a selection of tours, still everything is adjusted to your needs and can be customized. There are several options for families and persons in wheelchair, please just let me know what you are looking for! Fazer chocolate factory is a must for children and can be customized to all tours!

I am an experienced driver, we can always take the car and head towards spontaneous destinations and adventures in local areas!
Let's taste Finnish delicacies, visit historical places, hike in the forests, pick mushrooms (in autumn). Let me introduce you to our daily lives: salaries, prices of apartments, social security, education, health care. . . Not to forget our rocky road towards independence from Russia.
I started doing my tours in Spain, Turkey and Thailand, just to find out that the grass is so much brighter here in this beautiful clean and safe country!

A Recent Review of this guide

The Helsinki city tour with Laila was wonderful. Laila is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Helsinki. She is also very warm, friendly and considerate with my father's mobility limitations, which really helped him to experience Helsinki much more than with a standard tour.
