A combination of local lifestyle and Helsinki highlights that allow you to go off the beaten track - that's what Day with a Local is.
Description: Day with a local is a unique concept marrying the knowledge of a local with the keenness to go off the beaten track of the visitor, or, to visit just what they are interested in with someone who is not an authorised guide but who shows what the locals visit and find interesting and gives an in-depth look at their city. With Day with a local, your day is customised to your wishes and requests. Or, you can leave all the planning and suggestions to us, after all, we get to see where you are visiting every day! Lifestyle, culture, cuisine, history, architecture, design, art or nature-based itineraries are all available and can be tailored to your needs. All our tours are private and personal. Group sizes are 1-8 persons.
About Day with a Local: Day with a Local provides personalised private tours combining elements of the local lifestyle with the highlights of the city you are visiting. We are operating in Helsinki with new locations - Porvoo, Stockholm and Tallinn - opening in spring 2017.
Explore your travel destination and its surrounding with a Local: Day with a Local offers personalized, high quality service.

Flexibility and interaction with a Local: Guests are encouraged to ask questions about topics they are interested in. Both walking and using public transportation are part of the experience. The pace is suited to the needs of the guests. Accessible and disability friendly services are also available. Optional elements can be added to suit the guests, from food sampling and museum visits, to seasonal activities and "escape room" games. Also, private transportation and dining can be added at an additional cost. Visits to a contemporary artist's studio, libraries and most churches can be included without extra charge.
