See world-famous sights like the Rock Church and Uspenski Cathedral, plus hidden gems such as the Chapel of Silence, on this walking-tour overview of Helsinki. The Finnish language can be daunting to non-speakers, so avoid the hassle of deciphering street signs by leaving navigation to your guide. A choice of morning or afternoon departure adds flexibility, while a small group size limited to 10 people means plenty of personal attention.
