Return Details

You may disembark at any of the available stops.
Sitting on the Gulf of Finland, Helsinki balances colorful history with a laid-back pace and modern, edgy vibe. The city’s architecture recalls the era of Russian and Swedish rule, and its maritime heritage gives its history a fascinating extra edge. So climb aboard your open-top, double-decker bus to discover the many landmarks and contrasts of this surprising and exciting city.

See top Helsinki attractions such as Senate Square – the huge, open square that’s home to Helsinki Cathedral – and the spectacular Temppeliaukio Church, known as the Rock Church; an underground, 1960s-built church carved from solid rock. Pass the restored Lasipalatsi building, a masterpiece of modernist architecture from the 1930s, and if you wish, or leave the bus to experience the Market Square, Helsinki’s most international and famous market.

Armed with your ticket, you can choose to stay aboard for the complete, approximately 1.5-hour loop to see all the sights on route and listen to the engaging audio commentary in full. Alternatively, create your own sightseeing itinerary as you go: hop on and off at any of the 18 stops to explore the attractions on foot.

Easy way to see Helsinki
, Jul 2022
Convenient and easy way to see all the main sights around Helsinki. One to two days is plenty of time and you can get on the bus as soon as you get off the ferry from Stockholm.

Definitely worth the money. We got the tickets for the hop on/hop off for the first day here, to just relax and get to know the city. The bus route is great, it gets you everywhere, and is probably very close to almost any hotel that someone would be staying at in the downtown area. Definitely helped us get familiar with Helsinki and where we might want to spend more time. The earphones are provided as you get on the bus, and there are volume controls and several languages. My mom has hearing aids and she was able to hear with no problems. It was a beautiful day so they had the top open, we sat out in the sun, a little windy but really pleasant. Four stars instead of five because the map was a little confusing and the buses are different. We took a handout from our hotel with the same logo as the tour, and went to stop 18 to wait for the bus. However the bus stop was labeled 10 even though it said Hop on Hop off, and the bus came pretty fast. But when we got on, the driver said we had the wrong map, he gave us a new one, which then meant we actually got on at stop 10. Luckily the two stops were in the same spot, but for those who have the wrong map it might be somewhat of a cluster to figure it all out. The maps were indistinguishable as far as logo, company title, both were red and said Helsinki Hop On/Hop Off etc. We took the bus to the end, and then got off that bus and onto one that was leaving to start the tour from the beginning. The second bus had a completely different narrative, so the descriptions of the sights were not the same as the first bus we were on. This wasn't a huge deal, but I would definitely recommend riding more than one bus because the second one had a better narrative and offered more information about the stops.

First day there Were missed location due to marathon. Also did not go until 4 pm. Difficult to find correct Hop on Hop off red bus. Terrible waste of money. Buy a Helsinki card instead. Give it 1/2 star

I loved it! Loved the friendly Finnish, most of whom spoke English. Adored the Vantaa Music Festival of Early music. Beautiful performances without exception, in the exquisite little church of St Lawrence's. The concerts provided a wonderful evening focus. I visited Helsinki each day to explore the Design Museum, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, to name only two and very much enjoyed the craft market and a boat trip around the islands. The only thing that was difficult was that things were hugely expensive. I got round that by eating a mammoth breakfast in the very comfortable Original Sokos Hotel, Vantaa. In the evening, after returning from the concerts, I would find something more modest to eat in the local supermarket. One of the things that impressed me most was the transport system. Frequent trains and buses allowed me to travel with much less fear than over here. They were always completely on time - no leaves on the line... I was able to rely on them to get me home late at night from the concerts. There were other women walking around at night and I felt reasonably safe. By the time I left, I only wished I could stay longer to explore the National parks and perhaps travel further North and perhaps to experience the thrill of the National Air Guitar Championships! I had a wonderful time. People were always friendly and helpful and I didn't want to come home.

Great way to visit the city. The bus met us at the pier. We traveled around the city visually seeing the sights. Then we took a second trip around the city and got off the bus at sights we wanted to see in more depth. This was perfect!

Enjoyed the ho-on-hop-off bus. Was able to see the highlights of Helsinki. Buses did not run that often and were crowded when they did make a stop. Recommend that more buses be put in service. We couldn't even get on one bus when it came because it filled up before we could get on.

I was disappointed in the lack of information given on the tour, they say very little and skipped real important information, The next day I took the Red Buses tour, far superior, alot of information and did 5 more stops, I was fortunate to have another chance to tour Helsinki, Red Busses do a bet

Very good tour and excellent service. The person who exchanged our vouchers was super helpful and friendly. All the sites are explained well and it is a brilliant way to see the city. My only issue is that for a 1.5 hour bus tour, it is slightly expensive.

Our driver was a great tour guide also. He gave a lot of additional information aside from the ones we heard over the recorded audio guide. This is a great way to see the city in one swoop.
