Hop aboard the comfortable, air-conditioned coach in central Helsinki, and settle back in your seat. Then, set off on your 1.5-hour tour of Finland’s beautiful capital.
Every sight on the route comes with a story, so as you travel, listen to the engaging live commentary detailing each landmark’s secrets and history. The commentary is provided in English and Swedish, and builds into a great overview of Helsinki's history, culture and architectural highlights.
Watch for top Helsinki attractions such as elegant Senate Square, home to the city’s green-domed cathedral and Government Palace, and a clutch of other neoclassical buildings.
Pass Uspenski Cathedral, the imperious redbrick Eastern Orthodox cathedral; and gaze at landmarks including the Parliament Building and Olympic Stadium, the stage for the city's 1952 games.
Take in views of the Baltic Sea as you drive along Helsinki’s shoreline, and see the colorful Hietalahti flea market, a summertime stall-fest held near Hietalahti Hall.
Keep your camera ready, too, for iconic sights like theTemppeliaukio Church (Rock Church) quarried from solid bedrock; and if the church is closed, the striking 1960s Sibelius Monument, a stunning sculpture honoring Finland’s greatest composer.
Your 1.5-hour tour then finishes at Market Square.
