Local & Native Finnish Guide

Hi, I´m Arto, born in Helsinki, where I also currently live. I´m fully proficient in English and my native tongue is Finnish. I´m also officially authorised Helsinki-Guide with a degree in tourism. I talk a lot, and as an friendly and easygoing personality, I enjoy meeting new people from all over the world. I absolutely love my hometown in the summer time and it makes me happy to be able to share it with you.
Welcome to My Helsinki <3

Helsinki With Arto

You know how nice it is to have even a distant friend in a strange city? Even though you would not stay at their house, he´s that one lovely friend who´ll show you the best spots, who takes you behind the scenes and really helps you to experience the city the way the locals enjoy their home town. Join me for a tour and you´ll always have such a friend in Helsinki. I´ve started my own tour-company, so I can share with my guests all the things I´ve found people were interested in, during my extensive travels abroad about my country and about what we locals do to enjoy the capital of the happiest country in the world! It makes me so happy to welcome you to My City <3
