Kari was very friendly and took the time to answer all of my questions related to history, politics and economics of the country. Also, he speaks not only English, but perfect Spanish.

Our guide was very passionate about his job and explained a lot about Helsinki and Finland. Also he always suggested to take us to extra spots than the program if we wanted for example the smallest statue in Helsinki which was very interesting!

Great tour. We didn't walk a long route but there were plenty of stops along the way and a good mix of history, current lifestyle and humour. Great that the guide had a mic so that everyone could hear. I feel like I understand the Fins a lot better now. Would highly recommend this tour.

Great tour to know more about the Finns and their culture (Jorge's semi outsider view helps!) and to get an overview of the city.

Lo mejor de las ciudades es cuando te dejas sorprender y eso fue justamente lo que nos trajo este tour con Jona! Ver ese otro lado de un Helsinki no turitico sino de su gente local, de sus trabajadores, de sus jovenes y de su dia a dia. Encantada de volver!

Best things to do and see in Helsinki

Helsinki is one of the most modern cities in Europe. Capital of Finland, it is the largest and most populated town in the country, and its coast is bathed by the Gulf of Finland. This Scandinavian city is possible to visit in a few days and see the essential and most emblematic places. It has quite a varied architectural style that mixes classic with modern buildings, as well as with different influences from other countries such as Sweden or Russia and also has many museums, designer cafes and many other amazing buildings and monuments.


As in any city, if you want to get to know the culture, history and the most iconic places it is important that you get shown around by a local guide. If you do a free walking tour in Helsinki you can take a guided tour that will allow you to have a complete, different and fun view of the city. Some points of interest that you shouldn’t miss your trip are; Senate Square, where the Cathedral (Tuomiokirkko), the University Library and Casa Sederholm are located, the Lutheran Stone Church (Temppeliaukio) and built directly into the bedrock of the city and illuminated with natural light, the Old Market (Vanha Kauppahalli) and the Market Square are also obligatory stops.


The Sibelius park on the seafront, Esplanadi (urban park), the Uspenski Orthodox Cathedral or the Kampi Chapel of Silence could be included in your route to stretch your legs. A little further away but worthwhile is the Fortress of Suomenlinna on 6 islands and built by the Swedes. You can choose a tour for the morning, afternoon, or evening. All the free tours available in Helsinki have opinions of walkers who have already done a tour in this city and evaluated the experience and the local guide.
