Visit Ainola, the former home of Finnish national composer Jean Sibelius, panoramic Helsinki

Combine Helsinki City Tour with the countryside.
We visit the former home of our national composer, Jean Sibelius. The museum guide will introduce the house to us, after which we walk through the garden admiring beautiful nature. The museum is not open on Mondays.

We then return to Helsinki to take in all the highlights, including the famous "Rock Church" in Finnish: Temppeliaukio Church.

Of course, on our way back we take a look at the Sibelius monument.

I can also arrange tickets to the Sibelius concert, every day at noon in Helsinki. Concert duration is 1 hour and tickets are 40 euros per person.

This is a private tour and the price is per tour. In case you are more than 8, please ask for a quotation.
