About Maddalena - the Doer

Travel, wine and food are in my DNA.
I grew up between two cultures, my mother being Finnish and my father Italian, and from a very young age, I travelled a lot. My paternal grandparents were from the Italian Valpolicella wine region, and quality wine and food are close to my heart, so much so that I became a sommelier in 2014.
I live in Helsinki, my favourite city in the world, where I started my company, Vino Tours, specialising in offering authentic local experiences in Finland, Italy and the rest of Europe. I am an authorised Helsinki (and Porvoo) guide, and I offer guided walking tours and food tours in four different languages. In addition to the well-known sights, I make my customers fall in love with Helsinki by letting them in on some of the city’s best well-kept secrets and stories.

Die Food Tour mit Maddalena war der perfekte Start in unser Helsinki-Wochenende. Die ausgewählten Essen waren total lecker und sehr authentisch. Maddalena konnte uns auch viel über Helsinki erzählen, hatte viele Tipps parat und die Food Tour war eigentlich auch eine halbe Stadt- und Sightseeing-Tour, sodass wir am Ende satt und mit ganz viel Wissen die Tour beendet haben. Nicht zuletzt aufgrund Maddalenas sympathischer Art haben wir die Buchung nicht bereut!
