Hi, my name is Timo, your local private guide in Helsinki. I am an easy-going and open-minded person. I like to interact with people from across the world and to know about their culture, language, travel interests. I am passionate about nature. In my free time I enjoy outdoor activities of all kinds. In the summer amongst other things, I love to hike, mountain bike and go kayaking. In the winter, I love to snowshoe and watch the northern lights. My professionality is also based on a long career in information technology, serving in an international company as a technical specialist. This has given me the opportunity to travel around Europe, the USA and Asia. As well as being an experienced Nature and Wilderness Guide, I am also a Golden Badge Guide (the ultimate qualification in guiding in Finland). I am also a Licenced City of Helsinki and a Licenced Suomenlinna Unesco World Heritage Guide, the City of Hyvinkää and Tuusula Guide, so wherever we go you'll be in good hands. My aim is to provide you with enthusiastic informative private tours which ensure that your Helsinki and Finland experience will be the best. My bespoke tours include walking tours or biking tours, tours by a private car, a van or a minibus. Within Helsinki we can cover the major sites or explore less well-known districts in the countryside like Nuuksio or Sipoonkorpi Wilderness areas, the picturesque small town of Porvoo, nearby towns like Tuusula and Hyvinkää are a few of the many wonderful places that can be easily reached in a day trip. My tours are very flexible in content and timing and I can adapt easily to your preferences and suggestions. For me, the best reward for guiding guests is the fun I have sharing the beauty of the place. Let me be your local guide and I will share with you not only my knowledge and expertise but my enthusiasm as well.

Hi I am a professional Helsinki Tourist Guide qualified to guide throughout the whole of Helsinki including Suomenlinna Fortress Unesco World Heritage site. In a previous life I was a tour guide in Greece, Spain and Italy, so I am more than experienced with both large and small groups. I am especially interested in Scandinavian history, art, architecture, design, Jean Sibelius, cycling, hiking, meeting people and. . . . sauna! My tours can be tailored to suit my customers' needs and interests, e.g. day trips to medieval city of Porvoo, surrounding countryside or the National Park of Nuuksio and heritage sauna tours can also be arranged on request. I am positive and friendly. I enjoy meeting new people and do everything I can to help guests to make the most of their visit in Helsinki. I have been told by guests on my tours that I have a great sense of humor and really know my stuff. I also provide accessible tours for elderly with a wheelchair accessible vans.

Hi, I am Nina. My guiding career begins from Lapland from 1995, where I made my first tours for example at the touristic icebreaker Sampo. Since 1996 I have lived in Helsinki. Before I become Helsinki Guide 2003, I guided also in the Parliament House, Helsinki Museum of Art (HAM) and Museum of the Cultures. Since 2003 as Helsinki authorized guide I have made all kind of tours by bus, taxi, bike, boat, tram and of course by walking in Helsinki, Espoo and the surroundings like Porvoo, and Tuusulanjärvi. I have also specialised to guide groups of children. As a tour leader I have worked in Finland and taken groups by train to St.Petersburg, Russia. I was also as a tour leader in China 2005-2008. I love languages and different cultures and speak also Swedish, Russian and Chinese as well German and a bit Spanish. I am interested in history, design and architecture--hope you are too! My special interest is to do tours on an sustainable way, for example by walking and utilizing an existing excellent public transportation in Helsinki area. As many Finns, I am also interested in recycling and second hand shops, which sell vintage or modern but recycled clothes/ items.

A memorable experience with our personal guide

We went with Mr Timo for our tour of Suomenlinna Fortress on the 25th of December. We had our seven-year-old boy with us on tour. Our meeting made it very apparent that Mr Timo belongs to Helsinki and knows the city properly. He knew a great deal of history and geopolitics. He kept the tour lively, with just enough history and a good deal of Finnish culture. Conversation with him was relevant and we never got bored. I strongly recommend him as anyone's tour guide.

City Highlights Tour

I booked with Arja a few days before our arrival in Helsinki and she was quick to respond to my request. We had an amazing tour with Arja and her husband, Timo. Picked up on time, saw lots of sites, interesting stories. They went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and having a good time. The day ended with sauna and a swim. Perfect ending to a fun day. Thank you Arja and Timo.

Hey Janet, thanks for the lovely review, good to meet you both! Hope to see you back in Helsinki one day; it would be wonderful to take you to a traditional Finnish sauna by a lake in summer. All the best! -Arja
