Nice scenic walk into town along the coast. It's a big city, modern. Lovely market selling bits and pieces and a fish market too.

Port is quite far from city center. Had to pay for a ship's shuttle to get there. Weather was awful. Didn't stay in city very long, unfortunately.

We booked a tour with a private tour company and had a small van with a small group while we toured the area in and around the city. Our guide was a local lady and very proud of her city. She made sure we had a great impression of her city by showing us the modern side of the city as well as the beautiful landscapes that they enjoy. Read Less

Here we used the hop on hop off buses to get into town and around. They were pretty good and we were able to see the Rock Church and the Sibelius Monument. Both were extremely underwhelming! We enjoyed the Esplanade and the outdoor market, along with visiting the Old Market Food Hall with its wonderful little shops and places to eat. Had an amazing seafood soup at one of the stalls and bought lots of little Finnish souvenirs and snacks. We shopped at the Stockman Department store and found so much to see and buy there - lots of Finnish chocolate to bring back to family. In my opinion, skip the Rock church and Sibelius monument and stay on the Esplanade and visit the Old Market Food Hall! Read Less

Toured on our own. Public transit was good going out but difficult to return to the ship. We had an interesting day at Sumolinia Island.

We took the shuttle from the port (it would have been better if we were closer to the city center). Helsinki was beautiful and we loved their open market. It was easy to see everything within a couple of hours.

We also did not need a shore excursion here. Our Taxi driver took us to several of the places he thought we needed to see and that was good enough for us. He waited for us while we went into the Rock Church and then took us through the city to see the President's Palace, Senate Square, Cathedrals and then recommended a great restaurant for lunch. The people there were very nice and our taxi driver on the way back to the ship told us a little more about Finland that was interesting. He came from South Africa as a young adult and was able to build his own business, has healthcare, retirement and education. Such a nice experience! Read Less

This is a lovely port. We simply got a map from the tourist booth at the port and walked around. Thoroughly enjoyed this port.

Despite multiple queries that assured us the ship diced with easy access to bus , or so. Had to make our own arrangements to get into town and find bus, then the hop on bus didn't take our voucher, but driver let us on anyway because it was raining. No way back to ship, so managed to find a Viking bus to return. Read Less

We took the ships shuttle to near the centre of town, walked around for a time, then got a local bus ticket that lasts 120 minutes for £2.67 each, taking tram 2 to the Church in the Rock (3 euro I think). We were greeted by an organ recital whilst at the Church in the Rock. We then continued on the tram, changing part way round to tram 3, to do a complete circular tour of Helsinki on the cheap. We ended our time having a fish lunch for 7 euros each at the open air market before getting the shuttle back to the ship. A cheap and cheerful day. Read Less

I have mixed up Helsinki and Stockholm and cant change it. Stockholm is stunning but you need much more time there. We walked the old city which took our available time. Shuttle bus was laid on which was required. Helsinki was nice, but a little flat feeling (on a Sunday Morning) after the beauty and madness of Russia. Read Less
