Joensuun matkailuoppaat knows the town of Joensuu and its stories, history, and people. Did you know that Joensuu was a center of international trade in Finland in the 19th century? Trade made the small town grow into a lively and modern town of culture and education. We have a wide range of stories to tell and places to introduce.

We always plan our guided tours, the route and the stories, according to your wishes. Our tour languages are Finnish, English, Swedish, Spanish, Russian, and Japanese. We are local guides in Joensuu, authorized by the Federation of Finnish Tourist Guide Associations.
