Of the 4 Baltic Countries that we visited Helsinki was my favourite - I have no idea why - it just appealed more. The buildings in all of the Countries/Cities are simply superb. The places are so clean and the people so friendly and welcoming. May, when we visited was wonderful not too clod but in fact quite warm considering its Geographic location.
Beautiful city, hop on bus excellent. Even supplied a shuttle bus for just the 4 of us back to our ship at the necessary time. Viator never let us down, have used them many times.
The hop-no hop-off tour is very good, nicely narrated. Stopped at all the major sites. Great w-fi!
This was very good. We were able to board the bus by our cruise ship and then make the loop to see all thing Helsinki. Afterwards, staying on the bus we were able to get off to visit the Rock Church, the Sibelius monument and the market square.
Excellent price and a great way to see Helsinki. Super WiFi.
You certainly see the city and get a sense of the various neighborhoods - totally worth it!
Can't tell you anything as wind was too high for us to dock, Was very sorry not to see any of Helsinki I think based on other tours it would be about a 4 or very good.

Great service, the hop-on-hop-off bus was located at the port!! We only had to walk a few steps, boarded and enjoyed the sights! I would highly recommend this excursion.
This is a well managed hop-on-off company. The driver was polite and very helpful, the map and bus stop sign are very clear.
Great hop on hop onhop off expertience
This was a great red bus tour. Picked us up from the ship terminal and really showed us the sights
The tour was well planned and well organized. However the bus drivers do not even slow down for you to grasp what they and #39;re talking about. No allowing you to to see if you want to get off at a stop. The second bus we took, the driver never said a word. He took short cuts and skipped sites.
Very little time to cover the whole route, the northernmost points of the route could have been avoided and use the time to extend the time within the city's old downtown.
The buses ran infrequently and sporadically the maps were unclear about routing when we finally did manage to get on a bus, the audio cut out enough that about every third word could be hear. I'm hoping this was just a bad day and not indicative of how this tour is usually run.
This tour was a waste of money: buses were infrequent, very slow, and we were required to change buses twice, repeating parts of the circuit we had already seen. It took four hours for us to complete the circuit, with only one quick stop at the Church in the Rock. We would have been better off to take the cruise shuttle to the centre of town and walk around on our own.
Terrible operator. Bus intervals were not maintained properly. Waited over an hour at one stop and decided to return to ship. The bus finally showed up and when we sat we found that someone had been sick in the seat ahead of us. Made it to another stop and was told to get off bus or wait 15 minutes.
Excellent way to see round the city easy to find the buses, good commentary on board.
The buses ran frequently and covered all the highlights of the city. A very cost effective and complete way to see Helsinki
Excellent way to see the city in a short amount of time. Plenty of stops that are close to everything you need to see in downtown Helsinki.
Four of us assumed Helsinki was just a little necessary stop for our cruise ship. Not very many tours offered, so we opted for the Hop-On Hop-Off. Helsinki - by far - exceeded our expectations. It is a charming and delightful city filled with beautiful tree-lined streets. We went around the bus loop twice. The first time just to see the sights. The second to really hop-on hop-off. It was the perfect way to see a city. We all want to come back and spend a week here just to see everything in detail.
We bought 3 tours from Viator during our latest cruise vacation. This travel company is very reliable and well organized.
For sure we are going to buy from Viator again.
What a nice way to see Helsinki. The drivers were very courteous and helpful and Hop-On Hop-Off Bus was just the right way to get a good overview of the city and surrounding area. Plus Viator always offers a good price for their tours.
Very interesting tour , except for the rainy weather, but had a good time anyway.
Hop on Hop off was interesting and went to the old town. I wish they would have been at the ship docks to pick us up. The city bus was the only one at the dock and charged what seems like a lot of money to go just a few blocks. We did not know it was just a few blocks or we would have walked to find the Hop on Hop off bus. It was raining and we didn't review our options.
The bus stopped at all the major sites. The major problem here is that there weren't enough busses at the exchange point to take people back to the cruise terminal and there was lots of confusion. Eventually they had to call up another bus to accommodate all the passengers.
