About

Welcome to visit world´s happiest nation, Finland!

Four years in row has Finland been ranked among 149 countries to be the happiest nation in the world. Besides being a safe, clean country with honest people, we have a fascinating history for being part of Sweden and Russia for centuries.

My passion is history and our beautiful nature, and I cannot wait to introduce you to our beautiful seaside capital Helsinki.

I have a long history in tourism, I put my heart to serve you a wonderful tour in Helsinki. I am a licensed Helsinki guide from 2006, former Finnair flight attendant, and I have worked as a guide in Europe and Asia.

I am a kind and friendly person, you will feel comfortable with me.

Welcome to Finland!

Tallinn, Estonia full day tour

Helsinki

If you are spending more than one day in Helsinki, this is something you have to experience! Tallinn, a well-preserved old town, a country with a rich history of several conquerors, the latest Soviet union. This is the most impressive city to explore and you do feel like walking in a fairytale of history. Only a two-hour ferry drive takes us to one of the most preserved old medieval towns in Europe.

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.
