Maddalena B.

helsinki, Finland

Helsinki is my home and I absolutely love to show people around in this compact, charming and lively city.

I was born in Italy, with my father being Italian and my mother being from Helsinki and moved to Finland during my teenage years. Traveling and learning about different cultures, languages, foods and other people's way of living has always been an important part of my life. As a half Italian, has gastronomy played an important role as well and it has led me working with wines and foods; I definitely think that one of the greatest ways to get to know a city or a new country, is to try its foods. So that is what I do, showing visitors around my city, looking at interesting sights and neighborhoods, talking about architecture, nature, design, the way of living and history, and of course tasting typical Finnish foods on the way.
I will definitely try to do my very best to make your day unforgettable, so welcome to Helsinki!

In addition to the tours offered on this site, I also offer personalized, custom-made tours according to the wishes of the travelers. Also, any elements offered on the existing tours can be changed or added. So please, don't hesitate to contact me, also if your group is bigger if it has special needs, I can accommodate it.
