Local areas combined with all major attractions in an 4 hour tour


This interesting mixed tour of walking combined with tram takes us to districts where the local people live.
The tour starts from the center where we will see all the major attractions by foot. The Jugend style architectural area which used to be the quarters of Russian families in the 19th century, we will visit this area with the icebreakers and the former jail which functions as a hotel today.
We will take a tram to the prestigious Eira area and walk along the beautiful waterfront bulevard. You will see the best and most interesting parts of Helsinki and will certainly get an idea about Finns and our lives. We will also make a visit to Helsinki's most visited attraction, the Rock Church. Come and join a local tour among local people!

A Recent Review of this tour

This was an excellent way to orient and learn about the history and culture of Helsinki. Laila was a thoughtful guide who is passionate about her country. She was responsive to our requests and nothing was a bother! Laila came with maps, restaurant options, tram information and more. I would not hesitate recommending her to show you her city. Jane
