Enjoyed this excursion - the weather was off and on but there was ample space protected from the elements along with snacks and beverages.

After visiting Amsterdam and cruising the canals we expected the same type of "city" canal cruise in Helsinki but given the "structure" of Helsinki we realized this is not possible and this cruise while being of the surrounding islands is nevertheless well done and apart from cool weather was enjoyable and well narrated.
