This is really the best way to see this city. You are in control to where you want to get off or stay.
I loved it! Loved the friendly Finnish, most of whom spoke English. Adored the Vantaa Music Festival of Early music.
Beautiful performances without exception, in the exquisite little church of St Lawrence's. The concerts provided a wonderful evening focus. I visited Helsinki each day to explore the Design Museum, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, to name only two and very much enjoyed the craft market and a boat trip around the islands.
The only thing that was difficult was that things were hugely expensive. I got round that by eating a mammoth breakfast in the very comfortable Original Sokos Hotel, Vantaa. In the evening, after returning from the concerts, I would find something more modest to eat in the local supermarket.
One of the things that impressed me most was the transport system. Frequent trains and buses allowed me to travel with much less fear than over here. They were always completely on time - no leaves on the line... I was able to rely on them to get me home late at night from the concerts. There were other women walking around at night and I felt reasonably safe. By the time I left, I only wished I could stay longer to explore the National parks and perhaps travel further North and perhaps to experience the thrill of the National Air Guitar Championships!
I had a wonderful time. People were always friendly and helpful and I didn't want to come home.
Great way to visit the city. The bus met us at the pier. We traveled around the city visually seeing the sights. Then we took a second trip around the city and got off the bus at sights we wanted to see in more depth. This was perfect!
Great way to see this city. Wonderful options for stops, and great price to see everything.
Great introductory tour of Helsinki and its main sights. The driver was very friendly and chatty as there weren't many of us at the start of the tour. The commentary was knowledgeable and classic Finnish music in the headphones a nice addition when driving between the sights.
Our driver was a great tour guide also. He gave a lot of additional information aside from the ones we heard over the recorded audio guide. This is a great way to see the city in one swoop.
Loved the tour, great to get on and off when we wanted to. Saw a lot, I definitely recommend this tour.
Thoroughly enjoyed it and very convenient and economical way to browse over the city and pick up and drop off at port is very much a PLUS.
This was a hop on-hop off (1hr 30 min) coach tour with the help of an on board (English) audio guide.
(Various languages can be selected).
I got on the convenient stop in Senate Square in the main part of Helsinki to get my bearings and from then on really enjoyed the tour on the clean,air conditioned coach.
The self help audio guide was very clear and took me to all the main sights of Helsinki while sitting in a moving very comfortable armchair,as it were !
Great for visitors with not a lot of time to get a first taste of beautiful Helsinki which is compact and easy to get around anyway esp.using the cheap,frequent,efficient trams criss crossing the city.

This was an excellent tour - good commentary - excellent driver - would thoroughly recommend this tour.
What a lovely and historic city. People are warm and friendly and we enjoyed the sights and scenery along the way. The Senate Square and the Market Square are a must to see. Worth recommending to people planning to see Helsinki.
The tour was very good. Since we were doing this tour from a cruise ship, it was convenient. The bus was at the port, the representative escorted us to the bus and we boarded. The tour gave you an overview of the entire city in a short period of time. It's a very beautiful city even on a cloudy, rainy day. After the tour we walked around and when we were ready to leave the bus was there and took us back to the ship. A perfect way to see everything, and it was much easier considering the weather.
Perfect for our need gave us a good look at city and we're then able to choose where we wanted to go
Excellent,these hop on hop tours are fantastic value for money and the staff are just 1000% customer service oriented.VERY child friendly as well so great for families.
The hop onhop off bus is a great way toseethiscity. We like to take the bus all the way around and then decide where we want to hop off.
Definitely worth the money. We got the tickets for the hop on/hop off for the first day here, to just relax and get to know the city. The bus route is great, it gets you everywhere, and is probably very close to almost any hotel that someone would be staying at in the downtown area. Definitely helped us get familiar with Helsinki and where we might want to spend more time. The earphones are provided as you get on the bus, and there are volume controls and several languages. My mom has hearing aids and she was able to hear with no problems. It was a beautiful day so they had the top open, we sat out in the sun, a little windy but really pleasant. Four stars instead of five because the map was a little confusing and the buses are different. We took a handout from our hotel with the same logo as the tour, and went to stop 18 to wait for the bus. However the bus stop was labeled 10 even though it said Hop on Hop off, and the bus came pretty fast. But when we got on, the driver said we had the wrong map, he gave us a new one, which then meant we actually got on at stop 10. Luckily the two stops were in the same spot, but for those who have the wrong map it might be somewhat of a cluster to figure it all out. The maps were indistinguishable as far as logo, company title, both were red and said Helsinki Hop On/Hop Off etc. We took the bus to the end, and then got off that bus and onto one that was leaving to start the tour from the beginning. The second bus had a completely different narrative, so the descriptions of the sights were not the same as the first bus we were on. This wasn't a huge deal, but I would definitely recommend riding more than one bus because the second one had a better narrative and offered more information about the stops.

We've done many hop on hop off and they are nearly always the best way to get an overview of a city... Helsinki no exception.
