Begin your tour 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 at the underground Temppeliaukio Church, otherwise known as the Church of the Rock — a 1960s gem sculpted from solid rock — or if the Church is closed, outside the Sibelius Monument, built to honor the Finnish composer Jean Sibelius. Please note: the entry fee to the Rock Church, as of January 2017, is not included in the tour price.

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-hour 45-minute long audio tour ends back at the original starting point.

It was a terrible rainy day which spoiled the views from bus !
The commentary was often out of sync with ride so difficult to relate to where in tour we were ?
Bad weather meant seeing attractions was difficult .
Guides not helpful in solving. Problems.

Great way to see the City. Excellent guide and courteous, accommodating driver. The bus provided was top quality and very clean, and pickup/drop-off locations were most convenient.

Excellent tour. A little different than the 24 hour hop on/hop off tour. Excellent commentary commentary on the sights through the individual head sets in you language.
