HELSINKI TOURS

Helsinki Highlights

Departure Time: 9:00am or 1:00pm Duration: 3 Hours Cost: $379 per person based on 2 - $298 per person based on 4 The best way to see Helsinki is to drive, as well as walk, the city's highlights. Its wealth of architecture, including Carl Ludvig Engel's neo-classical Senate Square, is our first stop and you will see it is surrounded by public buildings built in the mid-19th century. The design of the square is Russian and was built as the municipal center of the city. It became a national center as more and more institutions made their home in this area. The Helsinki Cathedral, which sits on this square, was completed in 1852 and is a point of pride. The oldest building in Helsinki, the Sederholm Residence, is also on the square.
