It is quite a short tour and mostly spent sitting in the bus! The Uspenskin Cathedral was not covered as promised in the overview and itinerary print out that I had, when I asked the guide she said she didn’t have it in hers which is surprising. It is shown on the itinerary on the Viator website even now!

Dear Vaidehi, thank you for your feedback! We are sorry to hear that you were not happy about your sightseeing experience in Helsinki. According to our tour description, Best of Helsinki Panoramic Group Tour is a sightseeing shore excursion from the coach. It includes stops at such highlights as Helsinki Cathedral, Parliament of Helsinki, President's Palace, Rock Church, Sibelius Monument. Stops at Uspenski Cathedral and Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art are not included in this tour. Our guests are supposed to pass by these sights and see it from the bus. We hope that the rest of your cruise was enjoyable! Our client feedback helps us improve and provide impeccable service. Once again thank you for your comments! Sincerely, Julia Kharlamova

This was a great tour for our first time visiting Helsinki. It gave us a really good overview of the city. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us lots of information about the country and its history. Unfortunately we were there on a Sunday, so were not able to go to the Church in the Rock. There was a service taking place in the Uspenski Cathedral, but we were able to go inside for a quick look.

Our guide was excellent and very experienced at managing group tours. Coming off of an extensive two day tour in St. Petersburg its hard for any city to measure up however seeing the sites offered were interesting and I can cross it off my bucket list.

Very nice tour, with a great guide who provided a great overview with some light downhill walking. In on a Sunday, so shops closed early, but that was no fault of the tour, but were a little rushed so we could see everything before it closed for the night. If you have never been to Helsinki, a good tour to start with but would not do it again on a second visit.
