Then, see Finlandia Hall, a concert hall used for congress events.
Stop at Sibelius Monument, an artistic piece made of 600 steel pipes created in 1967 for famous Finnish composer Jean Sibelius. You'll also stop at Temppeliaukio Church, which was built into a rock in 1969 and whose modern design features a roof covered in copper.
After your coach tour, you’ll have free time to explore the city independently. You’ll find that this compact city is easy to navigate.

Excellent trip. Was a bit disconcerting that we couldn't contact the local agent although ringing for two days several times. The travel documents were delivered on the day before we were due to travel as promised. On the appointed day we were instructed to be outside our hotel at 6.10. We were outside at 5.55 just in case the driver was early. He arrived at exactly 6.10. We were delivered to the ferry in good time for a coffee and a visit to the rest rooms. The ferry trip was uneventful and delivered us on time to Helsinki. We walked to the appointed place and met the tour coach.This took about twenty five minutes because we weren't sure where we were going.The tour guide informed us that we could have caught a bus right outside of the ferry terminal! Be warned Helsinki is a lot more expensive than Tallin.In Tallin all around the main square if you want a drink,just sit out side of any of the restaurants and you order a beer.price about four euros, in Helsinki if you sit in a restaurant and don't wish to eat,the staff aren't very helpful or welcoming,price seven euro fifty.The tour was very interesting and plenty of photo opportunities. Downside was seven hours to kill before ferry back to Tallin.Got back to hotel at midnight, tired but extremely pleased to have had a very well organised well run trip.Will be looking for a Viator excursion next time that we travel.
Admittedly a really long day, but worth it! The map that was provided to enable us to get from the ferry port to the bus tour was excellent and the tour itself was very informative and enjoyable. I would recommend!
