Customized Private Excursion to Tuusula
This is a 5/5 star local guide. Timo and his wife Aria are wonderfully/knowledgeable travel guides. Timo toured me around Jarvenpaa and then afterward he welcomed me into his house for a dinner meal. This personal experience is what travel is about and allowed us to have a cross cultural dialogue. This was hands down the highlight of my trip to Finland. If you book a tour with Timo you will not be disappointed. Timo was able to turn me from a tourist to a temporary local! 10/10 would do again.
Continuing the educational tours regarding the King's Road in Finland, we were allowed to take part in medieval church tour in western Uusimaa area.
