- The best way to really understand Helsinki
- See hidden gems off the usual tourist route
- Itinerary customised to your own interests
Many people choose to take a sightseeing tour when visiting a destination for the first time. It helps you get your bearings, tick off must-see places, and feel that you’ve made the most of your holiday. But most sightseeing tours only give you a skin-deep sense of a place, you only really get to see what every other tourist does. That’s why we love this Helsinki gift experience - it’s a tour of the Finnish capital led by a local, non-professional guide. Someone who loves their city, knows it intimately, and can show you around while also explaining what life is really like. In this way, you can really get a greater appreciation of Helsinki, its history, culture and people, while still seeing as much as you want.
Another great thing about this Helsinki sightseeing tour is that the route is entirely up to you. Tell your guide the places you want to visit, or a general theme for the tour such as architecture, cuisine or history, and they will customise the itinerary to your interests and passions. It’s the perfect way to explore Helsinki, and you can even arrange to get around by car if you want to go further afield or have limited mobility. We recommend this personalised guided tour of Helsinki for anyone who wants to really get to know the city like a local.
