What are we going to do

Let's wander along the beautiful alleys in the fascinating Old Porvoo and also drop in a selected cafe, too. You will hear stories of this paste-colored little wooden village so rich in cultural heritage.

The route goes from Old City Hall Square (built 1764) to the quarters that used to belong to the poorest, but are now restored and some of most beautiful (and expensive, too) living areas in the town. You will see Porvoo Cathedral, Old Bridge and Riverside with Red Shore Houses. We will drop by a nice cafe for a snack, of course. You will get the best tips for shopping, food and best beer, too. Let me know your interests and I will plan the visit to meet your wishes. We can also add a beautiful hiking path by the river.

Old Porvoo is inhabited by about 800 people and the whole Porvoo and 50 000 inhabitants. It has some distinguished restaurants, cafes, chocolate and design shops and also offers beautiful accommodation options, so why not extend your visit? (Unfortunately the coffee, snacks and possible entrance fees at not included in the price).

About Outi - the Doer

I live in Porvoo and love it! My aim is to give you an experience that you will remember. In a relaxed atmosphere, you will meet nice local people, too. Porvoo is visually so beautiful and you will have enough time for photos, too. I am quite well in the town and available this August and September.


In rain and wintertime the ground can be slippery and there are some hills, too. So good walking shoes are recommended. We can adjust the route according to your wishes.

If the temperature is below -15 Celsius, it is ok to cancel. In Finland, we have this saying: there is no bad wheather, just bad gearing:) We can have some hot drinks along the way to keep you warm. In the summer, the temperature is usually over 15 Celsius and a water bottle is a good idea.

If you want to buy something, credit and debit cards are widely accepted in Finland.

Ask the price for child's tour. please give the the age.




Kävely Porvoossa jopa ylitti odotukset. Kokonaiskuvaa, tarinoita, historiaa, nykypäivää. Tosi ihana kokonaisuus! Pituus oli juuri hyvä, vaikka yksi kommentti sen jälkeen olikin, että olisi voinut jatkaa vaikka miten pitkään.
Outi Outi Kiitos teille! Kiva, että Porvoo kiinnosti teitä monipuolisesti ja että sain kertoa kotikaupungistani ja myös itse oppia uutta (mm. se laulu Runebergistä:). Tervetuloa uudelleen!


We appreciated the guide tour and are very pleased with all the interesting information we received. Now we know so much about beautiful Porvoo. Thank you :)
Outi Outi Thank you Kaisa and rest of the group. It was nice to guide and welcome again!
