Private city tour, with guide, minivan and driver. Excellent shore excursion including main sights. Panoramic.


Helsinki is a city where East meets West, offering unique experiences for visitors. The city's architecture is typified by Nordic minimalism and refinement. Modernism, functionalism and the largest concentration of Art Nouveau buildings in Northern Europe make Helsinki a major city of architecture.
The city centre, especially around Senate Square, forms a unique and cohesive example of Neoclassical architecture. Helsinki's emblem, the white Lutheran Cathedral completed in 1852, the landmark of the city stands magnificent on neo-classical Senate Square and gold-domed Uspenski Orthodox cathedral presents the Russian era in our history. Market Square (open-air market) has always been the citizens daily shopping center, fresh fish, berries, vegetables and flowers, supplies will change as four seasons go by.
Several stops for photography. This is a panoramic tour, no visits.

A Recent Review of this tour

Maarit was incredibly knowledgable and very friendly! She was prompt to pick us up at desired location and even spent extra time with us getting lunch and taking us to a specific location to be dropped off. She even tailored parts of our tour specifically towards things we would be interested in. Overall, a great tour and quick overview of Helsinki!
