We took a one hour and forty-five minute Helsinki tour which cost 32 Euros and made only one stop at the Sibelius monument. Normally, it makes only one stop at the Rock Church but today being Sunday it stopped at the Sibelius monument. It was an interesting an educational tour.

Hi, thank you for your review! We are happy to hear that you liked the tour. We stop at the Rock Church whenever possible but, as you mentioned, it is sometimes closed for events or religious services, such as on Sunday mornings. On the days the church is not open to visitors, the stop is at the Sibelius Park where the Sibelius Monument is located. Hopefully you will be visiting us again in the future! Best regards, Henriika/Stromma Finland

It’s strictly a bus tour with just 1 stop. On Sunday (which is when we went), it is the Sibelius monument. Other days it is the Rock Church. The rest of the tour was just driving past places with commentary through the headphones. I guess it was a good overview of the city but would have been better if there had been more stops, or at least a bit of a pause to let you see what the commentary was talking about before it was behind you. We took this in winter when the hop on hop off buses weren’t running, so didn’t have much choice I guess.

Hi, thank you for reviewing our tour! The Rock Church opening hours vary on a day-to-day basis. Sunday mornings, as you mentioned, the church is generally not open to visitors. On other days, there may be other events, such as weddings. We recommend checking the opening hours at the Rock Church website if you are especially interested in seeing the church. Our drivers do their best to adjust their speed accordingly when passing the sights but, unfortunately, the traffic conditions do not always allow for them to slow down. We hope that you enjoyed your visit to Helsinki and that you will visit us again! Kind regards, Henriika/Stromma Finland

I was in Helsinki, alone, for four days, in October 2018. I took this tour and I loved it. So, when I was in Helsinki with my wife, for a week in September 2019, we did this together. When I did this tour in 2018, the stop was at the Rock Church. When I did this with my wife in 2019, the stop was at the Sibelius Monument. I am really glad, because it is impossible to see the Rock Church properly in just about ten minutes, and I had to make a second trip later to see it properly!! Whereas the Sibelius monument can easily be seen in ten minutes, as the bus stops right next to it. So, one bit of advice, IF POSSIBLE, take the tour on a day when the stop is at the Sibelius monument. Phone in advance, or ask your hotel front desk to do it for you. This tour is free with the Helsinki Card. Be a few minutes early, and sit on top. You don't get much of a view from the lower deck! The audio guide is good. The starting point at Esplanade Park is a bit difficult to find, ask someone! Everyone in Helsinki speaks English, and everyone is so helpful and polite. So, don't be shy to ask!

Hi, Thank you for your good review. It is nice to hear you did the tour twice and liked it! Rock Church is one of the main sights in Helsinki, and worth a visit long enough to enjoy the unique atmosphere. It is a bit off from the very heart of the city though, and many visitors spend just a short time in Helsinki. To give a all our guests a chance for to see it, we have chosen it to be the primary stop during the Panorama tour. The stop is by the Sibelius Monument if the church is closed. I hope you will visit Helsinki again, when we are able to travel normally again. Now is a good time for reminiscence! Kind regards, Soile Stromma Finland

We were in Helsinki only for slightly over a day, so we decided to choose to see a bit of Helsinki on this bus. The bus tour was under 2 hours, with recorded audio tour. And we got to hop off the bus at Rock Church for 20 mins.
I guessed we didn’t have very high expectations on this kind of bus tour ( especially we have a pretty bad experience in Stockholm just a week ago), so we were not disappointed at all. The audio tour gave some very basic information about places along the bus route. We got to see parts of Helsinki which we otherwise wouldn’t be able to see , so it was better than nothing for us.

We had purchased, before the mobile pass became available, Strommer’s Helsinki card intending to do the hop on hop off. We had to pick up our cards and the Panorama bus was right there. Partly due to our experience in Stockholm with the hop on hop off, we decided to do the Panorama instead.

There’s only one stop, the “Rock Church”, which we think is a good thing. The audio worked well and was informative. There was also a nice gentleman on board with occasional added commentary. We were only there for a few hours so did not compare it with the hop on hop off.

Visibility was very good. The nearly fifty year old Rock church is marvellous... a unique place to visit. The commentary is clear and in many languages. A trip on the Panorama bus is worthwhile especially on an extremely cold day.

I took this tour on a Sunday and was very disappointed by the lack of places of interest. We didn't get to see the rock church. Maybe because it was winter everything was still frozen so tours of beaches were pointless

I’m glad I got to see any of Helsinki at all, considering that I had 16 hours total in the city. This tour wasn’t great and it wasn’t awful but I’d say it was overpriced for what you get. We whizzed by some of the best landmarks and made a 20-minute pit stop at the “rock church” when there are way better things to see. Beggars can’t be choosers when you’ve got limited time and this was better than nothing—but there’s got to be better than this.

Punctual service. Would be nice if they checked before that all the earphones or the voice guides work properly, I shared the earphones with my cousin because I couldn't hear the voice guide from my earphones, other than that is safe and organized, kudos for having several languages.

Thank you for your nice review. We're sorry to hear your headphones didn't work. We have a routine at the beginning of the tour to go and check everything is okay with the customers. It's unfortunate this was missed in your case, we could have easily replaced the headphones. Your feedback helps us improve our service.
