Private 4 hour Guided Tour /The Best of Helsinki

This private guided tour features four hours of the best of beautiful Helsinki. I want to show you what makes locals and visitors fall in love with this city. Helsinki has it all - tranquil shorelines, stunning nature, world famous sites, architectural gems and quirky corners. Through anecdotes and stories I will make the city, its history and Finnish culture come alive. I am the author of a book about Helsinki's most famous landmark, the Rock Church, so I am also an expert on the church, its architects and its construction. If you have a special area of interest, let me know in advance and I can do some research for you in readiness for the tour. We can include time for shopping at the artisan market to taste some local delicacies such as fried vendice from the lake, wild blueberries or home-grown strawberries. The tour is fun, relaxed and easy-going and I am sure at the end of our day together you will understand why Finland, according to the UN 2018 report, is the 'Happiest Nation on Earth'.
