- Admire the most famous landmarks of Helsinki
- Visit Suomenlinna, a UNESCO World Heritage Site
We think this is the ultimate Helsinki sightseeing tour for the visitor. In the space of just five hours, a knowledgeable and friendly guide will lead you around most of the must-see cultural and historic landmarks in the Finnish capital, including the Sibelius Monument, the Old Market Hall, Esplanade Park and Senate Square, with a fascinating commentary and plenty of opportunities to take photographs. But that’s only part one of this unmissable Helsinki gift experience!
Part two begins with a ferry journey from the famous Market Square over to Suomenlinna, one of the largest sea fortresses in the world. Sprawled across no fewer than six islands, this is a staggeringly impressive work of architecture that has defended three sovereign states over the centuries. Your tour will continue through the King’s Gate, past Suomenlinna Church, the Jerry Barracks and the Great Courtyard as you learn the story behind the fortress and those who defended it. This Helsinki guided tour is an absolute must-do if you want to understand the city’s historical significance and take in all the principal attractions in one go.
