About the Tour

"Tervetuloa Helsinkiin" or Welcome to Helsinki!

- Did you know that there are more saunas in Finland than the number of cars?
- Did you know the world's top seller phone ever was manufactured in Finland?

If the answer to the questions is No, then I highly recommend you book this tour and get to know more about the Finnish culture, history, and lifestyle with me!

In this fun tour, we will visit the highlights of Helsinki such as:

  • The iconic Helsinki cathedral and senate square, where we'll discuss Finland's history briefly,
  • University of Helsinki, why Finland has the best education system?
  • Central train station as one of the most beautiful ones in the world,
  • Central library where people can play PS5 or record a music!
  • The wooden chapel of silence with a modern qrchitecture, great for a quick meditation,
  • Amos rex museum, the museum of modern emotions!
  • Design and shopping district with art nouva buildings and world class designs such as Marimekko, what other famous Finnish designs are there in the world?
  • Market square, what is salmon soup? And what do Finns usually eat or drink?
  • Havis Amanda statue, the iconic statue of Helsinki!
  • And many other secrets ...


Besides visiting these monumets, we will discuss many different topics about the Finnish culture and lifestyle!


In the end, I can take you to a Finnish public sauna to experience this unique Finnish invention! A Finn jumps into cold water after, what about you?!!

Wish to see you soon!

I was in Helsinki on a short day trip from Tallinn and this tour was perfect to see the highlights of the city and learn some Finnish culture and history along the way. Mehdi was a fantastic guide, he made everyone feel welcome and had selected a great route to show off the highlights of Helsinki.
