Then, set off on your tour around Helsinki’s main sights. View must-sees such as Senate Square, home to Helsinki Cathedral and the Government Palace as well as nearby Uspenski Cathedral, and pass the Finnish National Opera House and striking Finlandia Hall, a 1970s masterpiece built from Italian marble and Finnish granite.

Stop at the underground Temppeliaukio Church, otherwise known as the Church of the Rock — a 1960s gem sculpted from solid rock — or at the Sibelius Monument, built to honor the Finnish composer Jean Sibelius. Please note: the entry fee to the Rock Church is not included in the tour price.

As you travel, select the relevant sections of audio commentary to learn about each landmark and uncover the city’s turbulent history. Your audio guide also features stirring sound effects to bring each sight to vivid life and provide an immersive experience.

Good tour for what it was
Traveler
, Feb 2020
The trip was what you would expect - an easy bus tour around the city with a prerecorded audio. However, the bus was comfortable, the audio was relatively entertaining, and the people working on the bus were very nice. Hence the 5 stars - for what it is, it was a good tour.

Hi, thank you for your review! We are glad to hear you enjoyed the Panorama Sightseeing Tour. The Rock Church is a very unique place to visit and our tour stops there when the church is open. If the church is closed, you will get to stop at the Sibelius Monument. We hope to see you in Helsinki again! Best regards, Henriika/Stromma Finland

It was a terrible rainy day which spoiled the views from bus ! The commentary was often out of sync with ride so difficult to relate to where in tour we were ? Bad weather meant seeing attractions was difficult . Guides not helpful in solving. Problems.

This was a good way to see the city quickly. It was about 2 hours long with 2 stops to get off the bus. You got a good overview of the city and could go back and see anything you wanted to on your own, when you just have a day in the city it is great way to get see the city and if have more time a great beginning overview.
