My name is Michael, and I normally work in the office. However as many of the guides are at university for the next few days, I thought I'd step in and give a few tours this week - showing my favourite places in Helsinki! This tour gives a quick orientation of the center of Helsinki showing a few of the highlights, with the main focus being the design district and nature walk.  

You will get a brief overview of the history of Helsinki - along with insights on what it's like to live here, what food you can try during your stay, and also recommendations on places to visit. I will also show you some of the main highlights of the city.

We will then head together on a tram to the district of Arabia, where we visit the Design Center, walk through the artists district, and visit the Old Water Rapids & Lammassaari island. I will end the tour at a point where you can take the tram back to the city center. Exact details are below.

There will be loo breaks along the way, along with a take-away coffee stop. Any questions just send a message!
