Select your preferred start time and, after meeting your guide at your Helsinki hotel or Helsinki cruise port, begin your walking tour.
Listen to tales of Helsinki’s history, architecture and culture, and absorb the vibrant atmosphere of this elegant city. If there’s anything you want to see more of, or if you have specific sightseeing interests, let your guide know and they will do their best to accommodate you.
Stroll around Helsinki’s heart and view must-sees such as Parliament House, Finlandia Hall, City Hall, the Opera House, and Uspenski Cathedral. Hear about each landmark from your guide, gaining a fascinating overview of the city, and the events that have shaped its fortunes.
Visit the Temppeliaukio Church (Rock Church), completed in 1969. Head inside to view the circular design and copper wire roof, and learn how this underground church was hollowed out from granite.
Visit Market Square, where harborside food and handicrafts stalls bustle with shoppers, and then finish your tour with a hotel or port drop-off.
Alternatively stay on at Market Square's stalls on your own, picking up souvenirs before returning independently to the port or your hotel by cab or tram (own expense) or on foot.
