What you'll do

This 2.5 hour walking tour focuses on the architectural history of Helsinki, the styles, the building materials, the main architects and stories about the buildings themselves linking to Finnish culture, the Finnish Nationalist movement of the 19th century and modern day trends. The main point of this walking tour is to do what most locals never do while in the city centre: look up and enjoy the fascinating and fantastic Helsinki architecture.

I was first introduced to tour guiding by a friend of a friend in an empty karaoke bar in a Madrid backstreet in 2014 and 3 weeks later I was a tour guide. Fast forward 5 years, and after a brief stint in Barcelona, I find myself in Helsinki, and like many foreigners here, I moved here for love. I quickly found work as a tour guide and nothing makes me happier than showing off what this vastly underrated city has to offer.
