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!

Great way to see the city! Easy map to follow and the buses were very comfortable. Some of the ear bud stations did not work on the bus, but it was not a problem finding one that worked.

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!!

The Helsinki Card worked well, certainly made things easy with regard to public transport. I don’t think we had enough time to take full advantage of it, but what I did use it for was good. Happily recommend it to people staying in Helsinki for a few days.

ONE SHOULD ALWAYS TRAVEL SCANDINAVIAN COUNTRIES WITH CITY CARD
• Submitted 03 Jul 2016
This is a remedy, especially you're visiting several museums and using public transportation system. It saved me lots of money!
• Submitted 18 Nov 2015
This card is good if you have lots of time in the city. Not for the cruise passenger on a day excursion. I was able to recoup 75 of the price by taking the Panoramic bus tour, but that's all I had time for before returning to the ship. Easy to retrieve from the tourist office, and the people there are great. Hit city hall first thing for free toilets.

I got at least double the value of the cost of the card and I was there on a Monday when most of the museums were closed

Helsinki Card was very helpful to get around Helsinki for free and with ease. It was a lot less expensive than the ship's excursion and I was able to take a bus tour of the city and see and do what I wanted.
