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.

Good tour for what it was
, Feb 2020
The trip was what you would expect - an easy bus tour around the city with a prerecorded audio. However, the bus was comfortable, the audio was relatively entertaining, and the people working on the bus were very nice. Hence the 5 stars - for what it is, it was a good tour.

Is an excellent way to take a taste of Helsinki.Cosy and warm bus takes around the city with very informative audio guide.The only stop is the rock church that definitely worths the visit. Definitely recommended.

Hi, thank you for your review! We are glad to hear you enjoyed the Panorama Sightseeing Tour. The Rock Church is a very unique place to visit and our tour stops there when the church is open. If the church is closed, you will get to stop at the Sibelius Monument. We hope to see you in Helsinki again! Best regards, Henriika/Stromma Finland
