Christina S.

Helsinki, Finland

I have been working as an authorized tour guide in Helsinki since I was a student at the Helsinki University in the 1980's.

That is 30 years ago and I must say that I still love every day at work. My major was history and that is a very good base to stand upon when you work as a guide. My special interests are architecture and politics.
I always put my customers need first and will go out of my way to serve you. Never accept "no" as an answer.
I can offer you tours in Helsinki and the surroundings emphasizing upon architecture, history, design or current day life in Helsinki and Finland.

A Recent Review of this guide

Christina was friendly, informative, and knowledgeable. The most amazing thing she did, however, was far above and beyond the call of duty. With a 45-year-old name and address, she was able to track down a woman my wife had visited and traveled with in Finland that long ago! This made an already enjoyable day extra special.

I was once chosen the "Guide of the Year" by Helsinki Expert.
The first design walks in Helsinki were conducted in 2005. I was in the planning committee and I have done them since then.
I have been the chairman of my Guide Association in Helsinki and a board member of Inter Nordic Guide Club.


I do not drive and guide at the same time, since I want to concentrate upon my guests and not upon the traffic. I am happy to arrange transportation and licensed driver.
