Meet your private guide at the main gates of Helsinki cruise port, around 30 minutes after your cruise arrival time. Traveling by private vehicle, set out on a sightseeing tour of Helsinki. Drive through the historic center, stopping along the way to admire landmarks such as the Presidential Palace, City Hall, Finlandia Hall, the Opera House, and Uspenski Cathedral.
Jump out to stroll around Senate Square; snap photos of the unique Sibelius Monument and ‘Havis Amanda’ mermaid statue; and pay a visit to the Lutheran Temppeliaukio Church (entrance included; not open to the public during services), then spend time browsing the stalls in the Market Square.
After the bus tour, continue to the Seurasaari Open-Air Museum for a guided tour of the island. The open-air museum is dotted with wooden buildings, which once belonged to farmers and villagers from all around Finland, and as you explore the rural villages, you’ll gain a fascinating insight into traditional Finnish life, culture, and heritage.
Your tour ends with drop-off at the port in time for your cruise departure.
