Private, Flexible & Customized

 We meet you in the port, in the hotel lobby or at the airport. We offer only private Day With A Local experience for you and your group.

You can choose your day program 100 %. Your Local adapts to your and your group’s wishes and requests during the day.

Locals give their own personality and point of view. This is not a guided tour, but better yet, an experience with a Local!

Safe, Reliable & Genuine

Our guests have been delighted by fast correspondence and our reliability. We reply in all e-mail & WhatsApp contacts in English within 24 hours. If you don’t receive a reply, please check Spam folder!

Liisa, owner of the business and Helsinki Local herself, has handpicked and met all team members in person in all cities: Tallinn, Stockholm, Helsinki and Porvoo. All team members have been trained to host you, yet keeping their own personality at the same time, to keep the experience genuine.

Sincere, Transparent & Fair

We give only recommendations based on our own experiences. No paid recommendations, only real opinions! Day With A Local fees and additional costs are visible. All of our team members are paid for their time & effort.

*) Price example: 395 € for 7 hours/group of 1 to 8 when paid online min. 1 month in advance. Any length of day is available. Different pricing on national holidays, from the airport and Nynäshamn port. Please note that your public transportation or other transportation, possible admission fees, food or drinks aren’t included. Local’s basic costs and VAT 24 % are included.

Experience cities local way

We walk and use public transportation, as locals do. In all of the cities public transportation is the most convenient way to go around.

If you’ve got any special needs, please let us know and we can make arrangements suitable for you. We are happy to arrange you private transportation, for example. Our concierge / travel assistant type additional services (as arranging special arrangements) start from 60 euros. If there is an additional fee from the arrangements, you are always informed in advance!

“Like being with a friend”

Liisa was super organized and very communicative. I emailed her 2 days before from the website and got everything planned. We spent 6 hours walking around tourist sites and local places in Helsinki. It was a very enjoyable day. On TripAdvisor>>

“Saw the Real Helsinki with Liisa!”

I loved how she took our group to see not only a few of the touristy places but also brought us to the more local areas. Great energy and a fun place to visit in the summer.

“Wonderful, well-paced, interesting day”

Liisa is an expert at showing off Helsinki. She has great pacing and knows when you might need a rest, a restroom, and takes the time to explain things where everyone in the group can hear and ask questions. Read more >>

“Excellent experience”

Virva took us all around the city, seeing some of the sites that everyone wants to see, and then some other, less-known but equally interesting places — We also had a very good lunch at a small restaurant that we would have never have visited on our own. Highly recommend! Read more >>
