A good way to learn about the city, country and region. It brands itself as unique and certainly lives up to it. Excellent view of people's daily lives up close and personal.

Googled Helsinki walking tours, and Rento Helsinki was one of the first results. And how lucky for us that we went for it -this was brilliant! Jonnas tour is interesting, she displays the main sights of Helsinki but also explains a lot about Finnish culture, customs and everyday life. Jonna is extremely knowledgeable, not only on Finnish history but also shows a great knowledge on history, politics and culture in general. She’s also exellent in connecing the past and the present in an interesting way. On top of this, she starts every tour with asking what the participants in the group are interested in. In this way, she manages to make us feel that the tour is personalized to our interests. Highly recommended.

This walking tour is one of the best things we did on our short visit to Helsinki. Joanna is knowledgeable, engaging and enthusiastic. She made a point to understand what our questions were, before starting the tour, so she could be sure to cover them. I have a much better understanding of Finland and the culture after taking the tour.

Fantastic walking tour of Helsinki. Jonna is a knowledgeable, friendly and hospitable guide. I learned so much about Helsinki and Finland. Can’t recommend her tours highly enough. Being small groups you also get to know your fellow travellers, in this case a wonderful group for the US, Germany, Singapore and Australia (me). Thanks Jonna.

This two and a half hour walking tour was a great experience for my son and I. Our guide Jonna was friendly and chatty, gave us a interesting overview of Finnish history, and insights into life in Helsinki. The experience was like being shown the city by a knowledgeable friend as Jonna answered our questions and chatted about subjects that were of interest to us (e.g. the ongoing debate about Finland joining NATO and how Finns view the Swedish language). The city is quite compact and the tour is just the right length to see the main parts of the town and to linger and explore a bit. We began at Senate square, walked down by the president’s palace, the waterfront, and finished with a walk inside the new library (which is much much more that a library). I’d recommend this tour to any visitor who enjoys a walk and is curious about how a knowledgeable local person sees their city.

We loved our walking tour with Jonna, who is a really cool, fun and interesting person. We loved that Jonna took us into some of the buildings on the tour, as opposed to standing outside talking about them. Jonna is extremely knowledgable and we would definitely recommend this tour to see some great sights in Helsinki and learn about the history, culture and language of Helsinki.

The tour featured key historical sites and cool tidbits about Finnish culture. I thoroughly enjoyed the insightful conversations about geopolitical and cultural aspects of Helsinki. I found Jonna very warm and engaging, always eager to give explanations/ anecdotes. I recommend this tour to history buffs and to anyone curious about Helsinki culture. Definitely the highlight of my short trip to Finland.

Had one day in Helsinki and wanted to get to know the city as best I could in a short time. Jonna accomplished this for me, by both her engaging personality and knowledge of a town she is clearly proud of. Prior to the tour I told Jonna I was a bit of a history nerd, and she accommodated me with plenty of Helsinki history as well as contemporary aspects of the city. Highly recommend this tour.

Thank you for touring Helsinki with me Dean! It was indeed an interesting tour for me as well, as we could talk about history a lot. Take care and good luck on your future travels!
