My name is Tuula Savastano. I am a native Finn, have been living in Hesse, in Germany, since 1983 and have a particular liking for the city of Frankfurt.
I have been taking clients to visit small towns, large cities, areas of outstanding natural beauty and forests throughout Europe for over 10 years as a city, walking and tour guide.
In February 2019, I attained the highest qualification as a independent tour guide offered by the German National Tourist Guide Association (BVDG), which means that I meet all of the recognised European standards in my work of introducing my clients to some of the finest sights and highlights that Europe has to offer and of sharing my insider knowledge. I also, of course, offer tours through Helsinki and all of the other noteworthy destinations in my home country Finland. I gained my qualification as a tour guide and as a guide for Helsinki through Helmi Business & Travel College.
Prior to qualifying as a tour guide, I worked as a flight purser for an international airline for many years. This allowed me to visit many of the great cities of the world, different cultures and, above all, to meet many wonderful people. During this time, I also became very proficient at meeting business travellers and tour groups’ various requirements and needs right down to a “T”. I am fascinated by how people across the globe and in different environments – from remote mountain regions to busy cities – live their lives. No matter where you decide to explore, every one of my tours is designed to be inspiring and to present the kind of newness that make for an unforgettable experience.
Join me for an inspiring adventure in meeting new people and cultures and exploring different cities and countries. Let me take you to the unknown, the exceptional and the most inspiring places there are, all the while enjoying my services in Finish, German, English and Italian.
According to a German saying, anyone going on a journey will come back with stories to tell. I always design my tours and plan the relevant routes in line with your particular interests and preferences. All of my tours will also allow you to really get to know the relevant country and its people, regardless of the destination. That is, no matter whether you decide on a walking or shopping tour, to visit cultural sites or to go on a culinary food tour – you will always come back with unique tales to tell and have a unique experience. Get ready for an unforgettable experience.
Cities are cultural and economic hubs with rich histories. They offer a wealth of cultural and architectural highlights, museums, unique culinary experiences and infinite possibilities for amazing shopping experiences. Get ready for an exhilarating city tour!
Discovering rivers by canoe, exploring new walking trails on foot or exploring an area by bike – undertaking an activity tour doesn’t just enhance physical well-being. Exploring the world in a physically active way adds a very special quality to that experience and is the stuff that stories are made of. Get active!
As Goethe already knew, “You have only been to a place, if you went there by foot.” Exploring a region on foot not only means getting to know the land and its people, but is also a wonderful way to make new experiences. No matter whether you are drawn to the Rhine valley or the Alps, you will be sure to discover a whole new world with me. Join me for a unique adventure!
Getting a first-hand experience of the latest trends in action, sampling the newest collections and enjoying the wide choices available to shoppers in some of world’s greatest metropolises – that’s what my shopping tours are about. My insider knowledge and local experience means that you will get the most out of your experience without breaking the bank.
Savouring rich cultural heritage directly on site with a professional guide by your side, seeing the latest productions live, experiencing the latest shows and work of exceptional artist first-hand – these are the kind of experiences that make a lasting impression. Use my contacts!
My food tours and their culinary highlights are the perfect kind of treat for food lovers wishing to expand their horizons. These tours are designed to introduce you to culinary traditions of a specific country or region as they have evolved over the centuries and have become genuine gastronomic specialities. Bon appétit!
