What you'll do

We will be together discovering the majestic and medieval town of Porvoo on a 6,5 hour tour from Helsinki. This tour will include 2 hour bus ride to and from Helsinki to Finland's second oldest city. The city is situated around 50 kms east of Helsinki!

In around 4 hours, we will explore the cute little town of Porvoo. While taking a walking tour through the cobbled Old Town of Porvoo, we will admire the 15th-century cathedral, old Town Hall and traditional red-painted store houses along the riverside. Continuing our journey from the old town, we will go to the mysterious castle, old railway station and soak in the picturesque and breath-taking view of Porvoo from the top. All through this, we will explore city's history, its origins and the people who shaped it. At the end of the tour, there will be some time to buy souvenirs at the quaint craft shops.

During the tour, I will take pictures, which I can share with you after the tour. For all the video lovers and vloggers, I have one go-pro which you can use to make videos and create memories during our epic walk through Porvoo.

I am a passionate professional photographer and an avid traveller who loves to document life journey through my camera and on Instagram (20k+ followers). I have been into photography formally for 5 years now and that passion has led me to travel and explore 60+ countries. I have now been living in Finland for 7+ years and I feel the time is crisp to combine my local Finnish expertise with my passion for photography and travel and offer that to the lovely tourists who visit the country I am completely in love with. Since last 3 years, I have been exploring Finland via the aerial route with my drone camera and that has added a refreshing perspective to how I view this lovely country. I wish to share these amazing and unique experiences with you and show you the hidden spots and gems of Finland. Porvoo is for sure one of the gems!

Subodh was friendly, thoughtful, organized, flexible, and offered several options for things to do, and was knowledgeable about Porvoo and its cultural activities. The best way to get to know a city is through contact with the people who live there. It’s worth a try=)

Subodh is a professional and informative photographer. He told me a number of interesting stories about Porvoo and showed me a great sightseeing, which is unique away from the city center. And super lucky to see the snow in Porvoo! Have had an enjoyable time over there.

Friendly host who will show you around the historic town of Porvoo. Good communication before and after booking. Host changed his plans to accommodate my late arrival the night before for a later start time for our trip which was very helpful.

I did not know initially about this place. After I booked experience in Helsinki with Subodh, he suggested it was nice place and sent me the pictures. As the weather was going to be nice, I booked this experience. This is incredible and very beautiful town. I am glad I went for it. Subodh knows this place very well too. Definitely I will recommend this experience if anyone has time.
