About Torukoishi

My name is Türkan and I am a Local Guide in HELSINKI.

I am on a mission to raise awareness on sustainable and responsible travelling and reducing the environmental impacts of mass tourism.

As a traveller, you have the power to make the world a better place.
I will help you experience HELSINKI like a local in an echo-friendly way.
Get ready to embark on a journey of self-discovery, while exploring the enchanting urban nature of HELSINKI.

We can talk about nature, culture, food and Finnish way of living. In addition, we can have a discussion about gender-equality, independence, the health care system and the education system without forgetting the unique Finnish concepts such as “sisu”, “löyly”, “kaamos” and many more in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

I provide tours for small groups of 8-12 pax, as well as solo-travellers.
