    Helsinki Card- Not worth the cost
    sarahimam, Dec 2022
    The Helsinki Card is great in premise. We were denied entry to the panorama bus. Apparently there is a cap on the number that can enter the bus with a Helsinki Card. Paying customers were allowed on. Making money perhaps? Friday’s afternoon all museums are free. We did use the card for things we did not want to see. I can’t recommend this card if it is not honored.
    Response from Host, Jan 2023
    Thank you for your review! I am sorry to hear that Helsinki Card did not feel the right choice for you. Unfortunately we did have some very busy days at sightseeing tours during the holidays. The only reason you could not take the tour you wanted, was the availability of the seats, not that you had Helsinki Cards. People who were let in had a prebooking. Guests without a prebooking/ticket for a certain time, are served with first come first served polisy, regardless if they have Helsinki Card or want to buy a ticket. Only National Museum of Finland has free entry once a week, Fridays. Other museums can have free entry once a month, two of them every last Friday of the month https://www.myhelsinki.fi/see-and-do/sights/free-admission-days-at-museums-in-helsinki We strive to ensure that when you are buying the Helsinki Card, you have all information available, that affects the decision. Your feedback helps us with this goal. I hope you enjoyed your stay in Helsinki, even when you felt dissapointed with your purchase. Kind regards, Soile Stromma Finland

    Great value for money, makes using public transport in a “strange” city so easy, as well as free entry into so many museums, Hop-on, Hop-off bus, as well as ferries.

    I just picked up the card at the Excess Baggage Store showed her my voucher and voila I have the card. I’m going to use it for museums, hop on, hop off bus and all the cruises. I used it for the train from the airport. It’s great!!

    Has Potential, But Didn’t Work Well for Us.
    Richard_C, Jul 2022
    The Helsinki Card was Just OK. If our plan for the card had worked out it might have been worth purchasing, but that didn’t happen. It is difficult to follow the directions for redeeming the voucher at the Helsinki Airport. The location has nothing to do with the baggage claim area at the Helsinki Airport. It is actually at an Excess Baggage Company store in the Arrival Hall after leaving baggage claim and is located on the left side immediately prior to exiting the airport doors. Additionally, they need a Printed Copy of the voucher. It took over 20 minutes to figure out how to get something from the Viator App to a screen shot to a .pdf and to logon to the store’s WiFi to the stores printer in order to get the required printed copy. Using the card wasn’t hard, but some museums must issue a chit or separate barcode to work with their gate equipment or scanner. Our flight arrival was about five hours late, so the first day we just used the Helsinki Card to go from the Helsinki Airport to central Helsinki Central near our hotel. The second day went well with multiple uses, but the last day we only used the card to ride the trams in Helsinki and to visit the National Museum. We planned to do the 1630 departure for The Beautiful Canal Route by Helsinki Sightseeing;however, when we arrived at their kiosk at about 1615 they told us that was cancelled. It was too late to do the Hop On Hop Off Bus and we had already done the other boat option of Helsinki City Highlights. So… I don’t think the card was worth it for us; your mileage may vary.
    Response from Host, Jul 2022
    Thank you for your feedback. It is unfortunate that your visit to Helsinki did not go as planned. We will improve the voucher redemption instructions and also the process for handing over the cards. Like you wrote the Excess Baggage Airport Services is located in the Arrivals Hall at the Helsinki Airport, Terminal 2. We are very sorry to hear your flight was late and that you also didn’t have the chance to go on the Beautiful Canal Route Boat Sightseeing. Unfortunately the departure was cancelled due to illness of one of the crew members. We hope that despite the change in plans, you were able to enjoy your visit to Helsinki. Kind regards, Katri Stromma Finland
    Well worth it!
    BetsyLynne_S, Sept 2019
    The Helsinki card was a great bonus to acquire while in Helsinki! I used it for hopping on and off the buses, the boats, entering museums,&public transportation.
    Well worth it
    Trail244353, Aug 2019
    This was a great card to have. We used all three days we were touring Helsinki. I would highly recommend it. Thank you.
    Easy to use straight off the cruise ship! Included everything!
    Jennifer_S, Jul 2019
    I purchased this via Viator and when I stepped off the cruise ship to go pick up my passes at the Centre, I was told it was an hour walk! However, the City Sightseeing Bus was right there at the cruise port and the manager took my paper voucher right there and exchanged it for daily tickets! I WAS SO THRILLED! In addition,compared to the other "red bus", this card had more options, better routes, and included everything you could possibly want to do. It was great when only having one short cruise stop here to just do whatever we wanted and not have to worry about additional lines for admission or additional costs. It made the day easy and pleasant!
    Response from Host, Jul 2019
    Dear Sir/Madam, thank you for your feedback. We are glad to hear that your trip to Helsinki was a success and you enjoyed the benefits of the Helsinki Card. We hope to see you again in Finland! Best regards, Karoliina / Stromma Finland
    Useful for Getting Around
    Peter C, May 2019
    We used the Card on public transit and also for 3 sightseeing tours - two by bus and one on the water. We used it for entrance to a number of attractions. It worked well for what we wanted.
    Bang for Buck

    Carol K, Sept 2017
    Very convenient, easy to pick up at the airport even with a mid-night arrival. My hotel was about a 15 bus ride out of city center so I used it twice a day on the busses, just show pass to driver, and could have used it for free travel on the mainline train. The trams are amazing and the card was great for jumping on any one that was convenient - just validate for each journey at machine in tram. I used it for trip on the Suomenlinna Ferry, the Hop-on/off Bus tour and a few museums. Even with 3 full days I couldn't fit in the Panoramic Tour but its route would be very similar to the Hop on/off and a good option for someone with less time. All in all, great decision for me to get the Helsinki Card to experience this fabulous city with ease. Can get discount on the Sibelius Experience with it, too!!

    Joseph P, Sept 2017
    This card was very useful for our stay in Helsinki. We got it primarily for the bus access to many of the sites we wanted to see, but honestly, Helsinki isn't so big or complicated that you can't walk most of it. The HoHo bus was well done but the city history and narrative was less impressive than many other HoHo tours in other cities. We passed by many sites that looked interesting but were not described. Other than that, the card was well worth the price, especially if you only have a couple of days to visit Helsinki.
