Great package. The bus ride was informative and an easy way to see the city. The boat ride was relaxing yet provided insights into Finnish lifestyles.

I loved our day in Helsinki, just was unaware of the length of time for the bus and boat to get round. I will review more thoroughly another time. We never had any time to do anything besides Market square, if we wanted to get back to the ship on time. Next time I would just take the bus since the boat does not actually make any stops, tho it was a pretty ride.

No need to book ahead of time - there are two companies. You can see what each offer and choose there. They will not fill up.

There was a discount on Viator when I booked but there is also a discount with Helsinki card. Both boat and bus worth doing.

The boat part of this tour was very interesting, however we found the city overly busy and not at all interesting.
• Submitted 25 Oct 2017
The Bus schedule is inadequate, few buses and difficult to find bus stops. The maps are difficult to follow, the canal tour should be reduced to 1 hour, especially if you have limited time in the city.
• Submitted 12 Aug 2017
Unfortunately it was raining heavily which made us have to sit inside on the boat , it was difficult to hear the commentary because of one very loud child. Make sure you look for City Sightseeing when you get off the ship. Their stop is outside the gate. There are 2 other hop on companies and it was vey confusing finding the right place to be. The drivers on the hop on/off bus were wonderful. Vary friendly and helpful.

Boat is not a canal tour, but out in open water so be prepared for the chill.
