Very good option for people who travel on cruise ships and who do not have much time to get to know the city, it is worth it, since the bus leaves directly from the disembarkation area and returns you to the same place, it also gives you a very good explanation and relevant data, and if time permits you can get off and get to know the places that are of most interest to you, you also have Internet on the bus. The prices are affordable and different from the transportation options and tours offered by cruise ships.

You get a good birds eye view of Helsinki in a short period of time and can get on and off as you want. I’d recommend the two day pass if you want to use the bus to get around to the sights and actually get off to go see them. Not all the headsets or speakers work on the bus. I got off to see an art museum that was closed but the driver didn’t mention this. I found out too late and ended up walking back to my hotel. I think the drivers should notify people about closures at each stop of the main attractions.

The presence of buses in the port of Helsinki is very good, giving us security and promptness on the way to and from the ship. What hasn't happened in other cities. I recommend that Hop on Hop off park your buses near the ports of arrival, giving possibilities for a greater number of people served
