Hi there and greetings from sunny Helsinki! The spring is finally here after long winter, which means that is also time to start with the new schedule for Free Walking Tour Helsinki! The winter has been long, and we at Green Cap Tours have been running tours through the whole year for few times a week. Summer is the high season here, like most places in Europe, and we are more than ready to receive the world in Helsinki during the following summer! Check out here why you should join with us to Free Walking Tour Helsinki!
The Summer Schedule – Free Walking Tour Helsinki
During the winter season, we have been running Free Walking Tours on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. We also ran tours in mid-January, when it was 19′ Celcius below zero and a freezy ocean wind blowing. We think that the guides and the customers who participated really deserve a big applause here. Everyone survived! But now it’s time to look for the upcoming high-season!
From the beginning of May until the end of September, we will be running Free Walking Tours everyday (Monday to Sunday) at 11AM. The tour starts from the Senate Square, the iconic postcard place of the city. Our guides are professionals and most importantly, locals! They will passionately share their knowledge of historical facts, culture and everyday life in Helsinki. Our guides can also give you great insights of other things to explore in Helsinki. You can read more about our guides here. The tour takes approximately two hours, leading you through the most important sights of the Finnish capital. The tours are held in English and Spanish, but in case you’re looking for a private tour, Green Cap Tours guides speak at least 10 different languages in total! Just let us know your preference, and we can surely work it out!
