Guided City Tours and Charter Bus Services

V. ALAMÄKI is a family owned company established in 1925 and today it is run by third generation of Alamäki family. We offer wide range of services for private groups, tour groups and travel agencies.


We offer guided bus tours in Oulu city and the surrounding region. Our city tour includes Oulu’s most famous sights, for example the famous Market Policeman statue in city’s Market Square. The Market Square of Oulu is an important site in its own right. We will see some modern architecture, like the City Library and Oulu Theatre, but also some treasures from olden times, like the beautiful City Hall and the impressive Cathedral.

We will tell you stories from Oulu’s interesting past, and explain the city’s role as an important educational and technological centre in Finland. The bus tour passes by Oulu university, the technology village Teknopolis and city’s most important sporting grounds. You will learn about Oulu’s most famous sports team ice hockey team Kärpät, which is one of the most successful ice hockey teams in Finland.

Our city tours last about two hours and are conducted by an authorised guide and a local driver. Tour prices start from 265€ (Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm), Saturdays from 350€ and Sundays from 480€.
