What to expect

The best of Helsinki tour showcases the essence of the Finnish capital in the best way possible, with a sightseeing tour by bus or on foot, that will take you to the most important historic landmarks within the city center as well as to the beautiful coastline. Continuing with a guided walk through the old town center, you'll begin to understand why the city, founded in the 16th century, blossomed under the rule of the Russian emperor Alexander II.

Begin your discovery of a delightful combination of heritage and contemporary lifestyle from the cruise harbor or your hotel. Once a strategic medieval merchant's town, Helsinki has now made its name as a leading design and culture hub of the modern world instead.

On your drive up from the southern peninsula, visit the monument of the famous Finnish composer Sibelius, situated in a pine-filled park overlooking the sea. The Sibelius monument seems to capture not only the beautiful music by Sibelius, but also the spirit of the Finnish people. The steel organ pipes of the monument are stunning and warm in appearance. One of the most exceptional stops following the scenic drive is the magnificent Rock Church.

The Rock Church is located right in the city, a modern building that brings to life the internationally renowned Finnish design, which is known for its clear, uncluttered and typically minimalist Nordic style. The highlights include the historic town center with grand cathedrals and boulevards radiating a metropolitan vibe. The historic Senate Square and Helsinki Cathedral, Esplanade walking street and the Helsinki Railway Station.

Finish the tour on Market Square just a few steps from the city center's harbor front, where you can choose to relax in nearby cafes while taking in the city atmosphere or do some shopping instead. The location is ideal for both, however you should wish to return to the cruise pier or your hotel, your private guide will be give you the necessary instructions to make your way back.
