Reviewer: J Millerberg
Boat trip was average . Didn’t really see anything extraordinary. It did provide our transportation to the Visa. The bus tour was also just average. We had to wait over 30 minutes before a bus arrived at the stop.

By the time we got to Helsinki, we were pretty good at using the Hop on, Hop off buses. The best part of this tour was the boat! It was so interesting. You get to see a lot and the boat is very comfortable.
