This is a nice way to get an overview of the city. When we bought our tickets at the cruise terminal we accidentally got onto the wrong red bus, so be careful. The one we rode on initially was very uninspiring and the commentary was not synchronized, so it was with relief that we finally boarded the correct Stromma bus.... More

We used the Hop On Hop Off bus when on a cruise. We used it as a extended shuttle bus, just taking one bus into the city centre, where we walked for a while, and then another back to the cruise port. This meant that we got a reasonable tour of the city, rather than just a bus there and... More

Visiting Helsinki for the first time, so decided I would take the hop on hop off bus and boat cruise package of Helsinki. Both run well, both informative and a great way to get your bearings of the city. Did the boat cruise first - this time of year make sure you wear warm clothing as gets a little cool... More

Excellent way to tour the entire city and see the "hot spots". Extremely honest company. I did not realize it at the time, but my money belt was lost on one of their buses. When I returned home 3 weeks later, I received a package from US Embassy Finland with ALL contents including passport, credit card and every penny! Wish... More

Used this service while visiting for the day on a cruise the bus service was good and covered all the sights we wanted to see frequency of buses was good .The price was high but that's cost in this part of Europe. I would recommend these buses as opposed to the extortionate prices of cruise ship excursions

When we booked we were told a bus comes every 30 minutes. Well that is a lie. We have been waiting at stop 12 for over an hour. It is now 3.00pm and the attached pic shows that a bus would come around 2.30pm. The timetable also shows they do not run every 30 minutes as claimed when we purchased... More

We visited Helsinki on our Baltic Cruise and booked on a HOHO bus tour but beware the are two companies to choose from. Both pick up and drop off at the cruise terminal which is helpful. We booked on the Sightseeing Bus but should have chosen the City Tour bus. The former have far fewer buses which are supposed to... More

Helsinki isn't the most exciting city anyway so the Bus Tour company has a difficult job. The bus was a little old with some broken seats at the top back. It took about 90 minutes all in but my 10 year old was extremely bored. The commentary worked. I've done many of these city tours where the commentary is describing... More
