History and presence


Sea, islands and parks, three factors that represents Helsinki. Culture, architecture and a rich history between East and West, that reflects the other side of this vibrant trendy seaside capital.

Helsinki is a place to visit all year round. The air is fresh, we do not have any heavy industries in the center and Helsinki is known for its several green parks.

We just celebrated our 100th anniversary of independence from Russia and you will hear about our rocky road towards independence and how Finland evolved from a rural country to one of the world's top welfare states.
Besides that I want to tell you about our daily life, high education, free healthcare and introduce you to our traditions and habits.

Let me introduce this beautiful city for you and your party.

A Recent Review of this tour

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.
