Reasonably good boat tour around the canals, and islands, near Helsinki harbour. Free with the Helsinki Card. Not worth paying for it separately. No headphones, and the audio is not very good. BUT.... there are many beautiful spots to take photos. Unfortunately for us, it was a gloomy day, and we took the last tour of the day. May be much better in bright sunlight! Finding the spot where you take the tour is not easy, it is better you get some guidance from your hotel front desk. Get clear directions. If you are lost, ask someone. Everyone in Helsinki knows English and the people are really helpful!

A nice tour in the Helsinki harbor. Luckily the weather was fine so we really enjoyed it. Unfortunately there are no headphones, so it’s almost impossible to hear the recorded speaker’s voice explaining the various things to look at. The price is a little bit too high.

Hi, Thank you for your feedback and review! I am sorry to hear about the poor audibility of the commentaries. Our staff onboard adjusts the volume each day according to the circumstances. We will let them know the feedback, so that they will pay more attention to it, and correct the volume level if needed. We try to consider the different needs people have during the cruise when deciding over the commentaries. Loudspeakers have been chosen to allow people also move around and socialize during the cruise. We also believe that the all the sounds of the nature and Baltic Sea is e part of the sightseeing experience. Kind regards, Tuomas Stromma Finland

I did this trip last weekend. Nice areas by the shorelines of Helsinki. Boat ok. However, firstly it was difficult to ascertain the words emitted from the speaker, as there was too much noise vs. volume. Earbuds with volume control would have been far better. Now, we had to wait until all 5 languages were concluded each time, not so interesting to wait through at least 4 of them, this also rendered less space for information on the featured and non-featured views that crossed our path. Also, too many sales-breaks rather than inform of the sightseeings, in order to to sell us the on-board merchandise. Also prices steep.

Helsinki is a wonderful clean city and their waterways are just as delightful. We were fortunate the weather in September was as good as the UK, so we had no problems with what to wear. In many respects we enjoyed this more than the waterways of Venice, because the architecture is more interesing and the waters appear free of rubbish and polution.
