See world-famous sights like the Rock Church and Uspenski Cathedral, plus hidden gems such as the Chapel of Silence, on this private walking tour of Helsinki. The Finnish language can be daunting to non-speakers, so avoid the hassle of deciphering street signs by leaving navigation to your guide. A choice of morning or afternoon departure adds flexibility, while a private guide means plenty of personal attention.
  • View Helsinki’s highlights on a private walking tour
  • Delve deeper into the city’s past and present, and get local tips from a guide
  • See a mix of must-see highlights and lesser-known hidden gems
  • Great overview for first-time visitors or those short on time
What to Expect
Book your preferred departure option and meet your private guide in central Helsinki. Then, set off to view the elegant city’s sights. Start with the landmarks of Senate Square, listening as your guide sheds light on Helsinki’s past, tells stories of modern-day city life, and shares insider tips on places to go, shop, and eat. View the green-and-gold-domed Russian Orthodox Uspenski Cathedral and take in the contemporary architecture of the Kiasma Modern Art Museum. Then pass the Kamppi Center and admire the Chapel of Silence—a rounded timber sanctuary designed for quiet contemplation. Next, visit a market for refreshments (own expense) and continue to the Temppeliaukio Church, better known as the Rock Church. Explore inside (own expense) the unique structure, quarried from natural rock in the 1960s, before your tour finishes.

My friends and I were in Helsinki only for a day, and we decided to take a walking tour, which was the best decision ever! Our guide was Emil, and he was great! He gave us a lot of information about the town, about its history, it wouldn't be the same if we were just walking
