Experience a different kind of Turku on a walking tour
Did you know that Visit Turku organises guided walking tours with changing themes all year round?
Walking tours are popular among travellers, but they are also enjoyed by locals, who come to see their hometown from new and different angles. Visit Turku’s most popular tours this year have been those that cover darker stories: Mysterious Turku, Turku Dark Side and Sins and Vices in Old Turku. Visit Turku’s tours are always led by skilled professionals, in other words, authorised guides.
Visit Turku is strongly involved in Visit Finland’s sustainable tourism program. Responsible tourism also means to us here at Visit Turku, that we offer our customers responsibly produced travel and excursion packages. Guided walking tours are a great example of responsible tourism, as you are able to get to know the city on foot. Responsibly produced excursions will be recognised in the future with a green Visit Turku eco-heart sign.
It is also possible to buy gift cards for our walking tours from Visit Turku’s Tourist Information. When you are looking for a small, but joyful, experience to put in Santa’s sack, buy a gift card for a guided walking tour. It costs 10 euros.
We recommend booking a place on the walking tour in advance. Even more conveniently, a ticket for a tour can be bought from the Kiss My Turku online store (in Finnish). You can also redeem your place on the tour straight from Tourist Information, which is located on the corner of the Monitori Market Place.
If you would like to have your own walking tour with a group of friends or colleagues, it can be organised in a jiffy. Get in touch with our sales team and let them know what you would like. Our expert staff can recommend great group activities for team-bonding days etc.
