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! During the tour you will get familiar with our daily lives, work, holidays, nature, education, health care. . . the list is endless, and not to mention our rocky road towards independence from Russia.

A Recent Review of this tour

Great guide who adjusted the tour to accommodate what we had seen on previous tour. As requested we visited local neighborhoods and saw Art Deco buildings, the Orthodox Cathedral, saw embassies, rode the trolley, and experienced the city on foot. It was a lovely tour with an excellent guide.
