What You Can Expect

Helsinki Panorama Sightseeing Audio Tour

Senate Square, Helsinki

Begin your tour at Lasipalatsi or at Esplanade Park in central Helsinki. Hop on a comfortable coach, put on your headset, and choose the commentary language from the 10 available — English, Finnish, Swedish, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Japanese or Mandarin Chinese.

Then, set off on your tour around Helsinki’s main sights. View must-sees such as Senate Square, home to Helsinki Cathedral and the Government Palace as well as nearby Uspenski Cathedral, and pass the Finnish National Opera House and striking Finlandia Hall, a 1970s masterpiece built from Italian marble and Finnish granite.

Stop outside the Sibelius Monument, built to honor the Finnish composer Jean Sibelius, and/or at the underground Temppeliaukio Church, otherwise known as the Church of the Rock — a 1960s gem sculpted from solid rock.

As you travel, select the relevant sections of audio commentary to learn about each landmark and uncover the city’s turbulent history. Your audio guide also features stirring sound effects to bring each sight to vivid life and provide an immersive experience.

Your 1.5-hour audio tour ends back at the original starting point.

Love Helsinki, but you must take the Boat Excursion with the City Tour. It is the best part of this city.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

It was very very good and well organised. We did not expect this much, perhaps we underrated it. Commentary was very useful and relevant. The lady Guide helped us to explore the important spots. Our rating is 5/5.

This is definitely a great way to get around Helsinki in a short amount of time. The trip has lots of information that might otherwise be missed if you don't have a lot of time.
