This card is very helpful. Cost effective and easy to use. I toured helsinki for 4 days and it was a good experience with the use of this card. Since I was staying at Original Sokos Hotel I redeemed the card just across the street, inside the metro station. Very easy and no hassle at all. You can claim from 9AM to 3PM. I highly recommend this card to tourists.
Highly recommended. Was the best value of any place I have been. Don't go without getting this!!
Excellent vaue for money on the 48 hour card. It paid for itself on the first day
Gave us the opportunity to tour the city at our leisure while not having to worry about having currency for the city. Very enjoyable
The card does get you in free at the museums that already are not free, gives you 2Euro off the Finnair bus back to the airport and other goodies. My favorite part was the bus tour that comes included. Under 2 hrs. and you have a feel for the whole city, then can go back and knock a few items out. When you pick up your ticket at the ticket booth (for example at the train station, like I did) you can book your tour time right then.
The city is very compact and I wanted to see it, and I'm relatively healthy (and it was summer), so I did not use the mass transit as much, but it was easy when I did.
the Tourist office was easy to fine and everyone spoke perfect English (good since we speak no Finnish), so getting our cards was a breeze.
The included bus tour was perfect - a nice overview of the city. Using the card when riding public transport was also easy and all the museums we visited accepted the Helsinki card without issue. All in all a good value.
We had great value from the Helsinki card. Probably went to several museums we would not have entered. The ferry trip was very fun.
The Helsinki Card is very worthwhile purchasing. I will buy one again on my next visit to Helsinki.
I really enjoyed visiting Helsinki. Different buildings- a mix of both old and new. Lots of different things to do here. Very expensive city, however, there are supermarkets everywhere so you can pick up cheaper food (than buying at restaurants/cafes). Public transport is excellent, however expensive too. It is worth buying a day ticket, as it pays for itself in three rides. I only used the trams, which was very good to get around. The 3T tram is very good for sightseeing.
City tour using the Helsinki Card was excellent and the ability to use the card for public transport and discounts was most convenient.
Excellent choice of events, sites, and places to visit - would buy again.
Excellent! Again, we wasted time finding the tourist bureau in the rain! We should have the cards mailed before we left!. Dean/Gail Savell
Good deal -- worth every penny. Saved us a lot of money. And, it's very convenient.
