I purchased this via Viator and when I stepped off the cruise ship to go pick up my passes at the Centre, I was told it was an hour walk! However, the City Sightseeing Bus was right there at the cruise port and the manager took my paper voucher right there and exchanged it for daily tickets! I WAS SO THRILLED! In addition,compared to the other "red bus", this card had more options, better routes, and included everything you could possibly want to do. It was great when only having one short cruise stop here to just do whatever we wanted and not have to worry about additional lines for admission or additional costs. It made the day easy and pleasant!

We used the Card on public transit and also for 3 sightseeing tours - two by bus and one on the water. We used it for entrance to a number of attractions. It worked well for what we wanted.

Very convenient, easy to pick up at the airport even with a mid-night arrival. My hotel was about a 15 bus ride out of city center so I used it twice a day on the busses, just show pass to driver, and could have used it for free travel on the mainline train. The trams are amazing and the card was great for jumping on any one that was convenient - just validate for each journey at machine in tram. I used it for trip on the Suomenlinna Ferry, the Hop-on/off Bus tour and a few museums. Even with 3 full days I couldn't fit in the Panoramic Tour but its route would be very similar to the Hop on/off and a good option for someone with less time. All in all, great decision for me to get the Helsinki Card to experience this fabulous city with ease. Can get discount on the Sibelius Experience with it, too!!

This card was very useful for our stay in Helsinki. We got it primarily for the bus access to many of the sites we wanted to see, but honestly, Helsinki isn't so big or complicated that you can't walk most of it. The HoHo bus was well done but the city history and narrative was less impressive than many other HoHo tours in other cities. We passed by many sites that looked interesting but were not described. Other than that, the card was well worth the price, especially if you only have a couple of days to visit Helsinki.

The Helsinki card was very useful but it would have been better to have got it direct from the tourist office as I could not alter the days on arrival. However I was in fact able to use it on what became my third day anyway so all was well. The Hotel Arthur which we had booked independently as excellent, not full of large groups and well placed for local transport but quietly placed near the botanic gardens park. However theOmena hotel in Turku was most unsatisfactory in management and provision. It is designed by Aalto and furnished alright but is in fact a hostel. Although all food has to be brought in there were not even plastic plates and cutlery. Nor were any staff on duty so it was impossible to enter as the number given was only to the external door and not the room number, despite informing them that we were out of communication for a fortnight before arrival on a Baltic tour to seven places. The latter is of course not the fault of Viator but the misleading promotion of the Omena chain.

Again, the pass card is an exceptional savings tool and provides access to many museums and public transportation. We utilized the card for a boat tour which was outstanding. That tour was the best tool to capture the history and essence of how the water is such a key aspect of everyday life in Finland. Locating the Information center where we could obtain the actual card was time consuming.

This card is good if you have lots of time in the city. Not for the cruise passenger on a day excursion. I was able to recoup 75 of the price by taking the Panoramic bus tour, but that's all I had time for before returning to the ship. Easy to retrieve from the tourist office, and the people there are great. Hit city hall first thing for free toilets.
