Into oza kuyenza

Join this free tour to explore Helsinki's less discovered and cool areas mostly overlooked by visitors. On this experience, we'll forget the classic touristic monuments and sights, but instead take a deep dive into Finnish society, and explore the old working class district of Kallio.

We'll learn about the parts of Finnish history normally tour guides skip talking about. How was the life for the working class people of Helsinki when we broke away from Russian rule? How does the 1920's alcohol prohibition law still affect the Finnish culture today?

We'll talk about the Finnish social welfare system and it's development while exploring Kallio's sights and hidden gems. You'll get to know about architecture and see the building where Lenin was hiding from the authorities in September 1917.

Todays Kallio is a melting pot of cultures, movements and ideas. It's a neighborhood very popular among students, artists and also immigrants. You can do your daily groceries in for example Chinese, Ethiopian, Indian, Korean, Middle Eastern or Mexican stores. There are many vibrant restaurants, cool bars and lately, also high end dinner service.

This is a Free Walking Tour, no set price, but after the tour you'll get to decide how much was the tour worth for you and collaborate with the amount you wish. Welcome!

I'm a history freak, coffee lover and a tour guide from Helsinki. I have been leading tours in Finland and abroad for five years, and I can honestly say this is the best thing I could've done. I'm also a traveller, I have rounded the globe , but now I feel like it's time to show my city for the world! Helsinki has a wide cultural and underground scene and I feel excited to show some of the secret gems for you! Besides English, I speak Spanish, Portuguese and Finnish, so let me know if you would prefer a tour in one of these languages!

Jonna is so chill and offered a nice walk tour. Thanks to Jonna I got to know more about Helsinki’s Kallio history and spots.

Jonna’s clearly carefully researched and well organized walking tour in Kallio was an impressive and pleasant experience. Jonna is very knowledgeable about the neighbourhood, the city and it’s history as well as engaging. The information she shared was always interesting. She had some great stories to tell, answered all our questions and her enthusiasm for her work came through. The very enjoyable walk gave us an understanding of Helsinki off the beaten paths of the usual guided tours. I would definitely recommend it to other visitors.

Amazing tour - Jonna has incredible insight into the Kallio community and a passion for this history that has shaped this special part of Helsinki. She is funny and accommodating to guests - she even provided a list of recommended restaurants and sights for my visit to Helsinki. Will definitely be recommending to friends/family who travel to Finland

This experience is a must do it in Helsinki, if you want to learn more about recent Finnish story and culture, and how do this wonderful country became what they’re today! Being at the places and learning about the history of that exact spot, is really something else, that I just can see Jonna doing it so, with all her authentic way of speaking and guiding. Her sense of humor is on spot, no matter the language, because, yes, she speaks all of them very good! I just can say it was a pleasure and would do it again! Highly recommended!

Well researched and interesting alternative to the normal Helsinki tour visiting an alternative area and history of Helsinki. Joanna knows her stuff, answered questions and tailored to the group. Much better than other similar tours I have been on.
