We had little time to see Helsinki, we were looking for options and booked the bus. He was very punctual, the audio information was very interesting. When going with children it was very comfortable and practical to be able to go to places of interest without wasting time organizing or deciding what to leave unseen. I recommend it.

Perfect tour to see the most important sights, and just good with 1h45 min. Learnt a lot through the audio guide too.

Very convenient and interesting to be able to have a global vision of the city.

This was the best way to learn about Helsinki in a short period of time.

Excellent tour with a very knowledgeable guide and driver.
