Cad a dhéanfaidh tú

My purpose during this tour is to share my passion towards Helsinki, capital of the country that consumes most coffee, has a world famous education model and crazy popular karaoke scene.

Apart of sharing many fascinating stories about Helsinki's history, I will be happy to answer your questions about the way of Finnish life and cultural habits. I was born and raised in Finland, and I want you to get a real feeling of Helsinki, not just the touristic one.

We'll start the walk from the iconic Senate Square, where's located the city's most famous landmark, the Helsinki Cathedral. You'll see the Bank of Finland and the House of the Estates, and you'll learn about Finland's politics, past and present. We'll also discuss about the development of the Finnish language. On the Market Square, we'll talk about the Finnish gastronomy and see the largest Orthodox Cathedral of Northern Europe. Towards the end, we'll see the Railway Station and the award-winning library Oodi.

You'll get to understand the unique Helsinki state of mind and a clear idea of our quite peculiar culture. Why is sauna so important for us? What is the "Unicorn Block" of Helsinki? When do we gather in the Market Square to swim in the fountain? Why is there a statue of a Russian Czar in the most famous square of Helsinki? Is Finnish really that difficult to learn?

Let's discover how unique Helsinki really is!

I'm passionate about history and languages, and love to share knowledge with people surrounding me. I have backpacked around the world, and now after settling back to Helsinki, I feel very eager to show my city to the world.

I have worked as a tour guide in Finland and abroad for a few years. I'm very easygoing, and always updated of events going on in Helsinki. I know quite a lot about Finland's history, but I also enjoy sharing curiosities about our society, habits and politics. When joining on one of my tours, you will not only get a great experience of Helsinki, but also a new friend!

An áit a mbeidh tú

Besides the bucket list places of Helsinki, I'll show you some of the hidden gems of the city. We'll discover different areas of the city centre, all of them with their own charm. Helsinki has a wild mixture of architectural styles from the 1700's until today. The cultural scene is always moving fast forward, and new coffee places and restaurants pop up all the time.

This tour with Jonna was really worth it. We were a very small group, so we could have a good chat and ask all our questions. Jonna told us a lot of background information about the history of Finland and the Finns - perfect as a prelude to a stay in Helsinki. I definitely recommend the tour.
