Helsinki is a compact city and the most significant attractions are within a few quarters. Let me take you on a tour and tell you the stories of why Finland has been ranked 4 years in a row as the happiest country in the world! Even our most loved saunas are now part of Unesco's list of Intangible Cultural Heritage. Among the visit of the attractions, you will get familiar with our Russian era, free universities, and free health care, and not to mention some of our oddities. Tervetuloa!

Laila loves her country and she shares her love and passion not only through her beautiful smile but also with her wide knowledge. Thanks to her itinerary we saw Helsinki with different eyes, walked through areas we would not have thought about looking at. we were 8 people from 25 to 60 and all had a lot of fun. Thank you very much Laila for your enthusiasm and joy.
