Our Story


My name is Emek Ataman. I am a professional city planner with a master’s degree in Urban Policy Studies and I’m continuing my PhD studies in University of Helsinki.

I wanted to combine my love for Helsinki with my knowledge and research about the history and culture of the city and share it with a wider audience, so I established my company, Ataman Tours, and became a certified Helsinki city guide. I love showing this Nordic gem to my guests and answering all sorts of questions they might have. For this end, I make customized private walking tours with various themes; sightseeing, history, culture, architecture and more.

My tours are intimate, safe, interactive, personal, environmentally friendly and sustainable. Every tour is unique for me and I make my guests feel the personal touch whatever the conditions are. On each tour, I act as if I’m taking my friends for a walk on the streets of Finland’s capital which is appreciated by hundreds of guests who became my friends after the tours have finished.


what others say about us

Not to be missed – this is a wonderful experience I was fortunate enough to travel to Helsinki, Finland and spend two days in the sprawling city. There is so much to see and do but by far the greatest experience of the entire stay was the walking tour with Emek. Not only is Emek a true pleasure to be around, his wealth of knowledge regarding Helsinki and the Finnish culture is impressive. It was a dreary March day with persistent drizzle, but Emek’s demeanor and personality quickly made us forget we were wet. I came away with much more knowledge of Helsinki than I could have thought possible in the short few hours of the tour. He imparted more tidbits of information from historic events and occupation, to modern preferences and practices, building and architectural styles to fashion, language, politics and religion. He answered all questions asked thoroughly and often elaborated to provide deeper context. The groups are small, making discussion and questions easier and the whole experience more personal. I would highly recommend taking Emek’s tour if you find yourself fortunate enough to be in Helsinki.
