City highlights and interaction with a Local

Personal & customized

We meet you in the port, in the hotel lobby or at the airport. You can choose your day program and your Local adapts to your wishes and requests. Locals give their own personality and point of view. This is NOT a guided tour but better yet, an experience with a Local.


Our guests have been delighted by fast correspondence and our reliability. Liisa, owner of the business and Helsinki Local herself, has met all team members in person in all cities: Tallinn, Stockholm, Helsinki and Porvoo.

Sincere & Transparent

We give only recommendations based on our own experiences. Day With A Local fees and additional costs are visible.

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 special needs, please let us know and we can make arrangements suitable for you.

“Excellent personalised tour of Helsinki”

As someone who owns a private travel service and organises trips around the world, I found Liisa to be one of the most responsive and helpful local guides I have ever worked with in any city. Read More >>

“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 >>
