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.

Todella hauska ja mielenkiintoinen kierros. Näimme Turun ihan uusin silmin. Suosittelen!
Toni Toni Hienoa,se on kierroksen tarkoitus, että näkee Turun uusin silmin.👍


Tarinat ovat mielenkiintoisia ja kävelylenkki hyvin suunniteltu hienoissa paikoissa. Tarinoita voisi ehkä hiukan tiivistää. Oikein hyvä ja kiva kokemus, suosittelen muillekin työporukoille.
Toni Toni Kiitos viestistä ja palautteesta 👍


Great 2 hour tour with great stories of the darker side of Turku. Would recommend this to both locals living in Turku and also visitors who wants to hear stories about the city in a different way.
Toni Toni Thanx.


Such an interesting tour with great views and Toni was such a great storyteller! I live in Turku but I've never heard most of these stories. I truly see my hometown a little darker now..
Toni Toni Thanx you. Nice that you see Turku on new darker way😜
