What are we going to do

Originally I got this idea when I was in Prague in 2003. I participated in ghost walks there and when I came home I wondered why we don't have same kind of an experience here in Turku.

Because there wasn't any, I had to do it by myself. I went through national archives website and newspapers that have been published in the early 1900s. I researched with keywords: murder, killing, robbery, theft. So the crime stories I tell you, are taken from the actual newspapers. Ghost stories that I share with you are collected from local folklore, some I have heard or read by myself.

The experience takes place in the central part of Turku: Aurajoki, hills of Vartiovuori and Samppalinna. Starts at Turku city library stairs.

Duration of the experience: approximately 2 hours
Roughly 4 km of walking

I can provide this experience in English or Finnish, depending on your preferences.

Join me for this experience! I hope that after hearing my dark stories, you will see our lovely hometown of Turku in a new way, darker way.

tell you dark stories about crime scenes and ghosts.


Good shoes



This is truly a pleasant experience! It doesn't matter if you're a tourist who's looking for a more interesting city tour or a local who hasn't seen a new side of his/her hometown. Myself I found it really interesting and this is a perfect way to spend Halloween before continuing the festivities in the center!


It was absolutely great! We recommend strongly!

Awesome experience and what a storyteller he is!

Learned about the dark side of Turku and got a nice little walk in fresh air. Recommended!


Paljon uusia tarinoita myös kauan Turussa asuneelle. Selvittämättömiä rikoksia ja kummituskertomuksia upeissa maisemissa. Vahva suositus paikalliselta!


Mielenkiintoinen kierros, jossa saa kuulla jännittäviä tarinoita Turun historiasta ja samalla tulee käveltyä hieno kierros Turun keskustan maisemissa! Suosittelen lämpimästi 😊


Mielenkiintoisia ja mahtavia tarinoita innostuneelta Tonilta!


Jännittäviä tarinoita kotikaupungista ...Toni osaa kertoa ne todella elävästi! Suosittelen!!
