Helsinki with enthusiasm, experience and excellence

I am Hanna-Leena Halsas, often called Hani  –  an authorized Helsinki Guide.  I have also specialized in design and architecture and am a licensed Design guide. Helsinki was the World Design Capital in 2015 and I am very glad to see that the interest in Helsinki and Finland did not stop there.  I do Design walks, city walks, city tours, tours in the neighbouring cities, in the archipelago and in the architectural pearls of Helsinki like Eira and Katajanokka.  Many of my guests come from Sweden, the UK and the USA, as I guide in Swedish, English and Finnish. I see myself more as an interpreter than guide – putting what we see around us in a context that is relevant to the onlooker and her/his history and background. Corporate walks both for Helsinki-based companies and their foreign guests is very popular among my clients.
