  • weather was the only factor.

  • Really enjoyable. Knowledgeable and friendly guides

  • The boat part of this tour was very interesting, however we found the city overly busy and not at all interesting.

  • Average hop on off tour, the boat ride closed the day before we arrived. That should have been known prior to when the tour was booked.

  • It's a good tour and a great way to see the city.

  • Don't bother with the Hop-On Hop-Off Bus and Boat Combination Tour --- the boat ride was too long, very challenging to find the stops as the position of the stop on the map doesn't match up with where the stop actually is. Plus,the signage is difficult to see. Questionable whether the buses actually came every 30 minutes but saw several of the competition's buses go by while we were waiting. Had to listen to loud argument between scheduler and bus driver regarding driver's schedule at Stop 1, which made us almost late getting back to the ship.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • A good tour which identified highlights. We ended up walking 80 of the tour

  • Good tour.
