We purchased the 3 day card for 68 euros each. We used the hop on hop off bus service and the canal tour. We visited several museums. I initially thought that only around 12 ish museums included for free was a small amount. However, it proved good value, we added up what we would have spent without the card and it was far more. It was value for money and included all the major museums and travel within Helsinki. The Suomenlinna ferry was included and all the museums on the island. For example the submarine on the island to visit was 7 euros each, it took precisely 5 minutes to visit. It was included in the card and I would have felt robbed to pay 7 euros each for this. I would highly recommend the card.

I had a 3 day stopover, so opted for the 72 hour card and it was great value for money! I bought it online and got a 10 % discount, which was even better value! Card is activated from first use, which worked out better for me, because I had a late night departure, so transport use was still valid! Worked out 20 euro per day and the Hop on/off bus value is 24 euro per day, alone. I saw a majority of the attractions that were no cost with the card and they were all easy to get to, with the Hop on bus, which usually arrived at stops within 20 min periods. LIke I said, great value for the money, so, I highly recommend it!

We were recently in Helsinki for one day on a Baltic Cruise. Even being there on a Monday when many museums were closed, we were able to save money using the card. We used the Hop-on-Hop-off bus, boat tour, Church of the Rock, public transport and Suomenlinna. We also enjoyed several hours in the market. The card made it all easy and saved us money.

We bought a 48 hour pass for around euro 64 early in our visit to Helsinki, thinking that getting around by public transport would be quite expensive.
We found tho that most of the main tourist sites are within walking distance ( we do enjoy walking around cities!) and the card didn't work for a visit to Porvoo which is also outside the region covered by the card

Entry fees to many museums are fairly reasonable, although getting to enough over two days in late winter/early spring was a feat well beyond us.
We probably recovered around 70% of the cards value and had we been extensive users if the teams and busses in particular it may have been more cost effective.
Benefits of the card is that it doesn't activate until the first use so you can time it's time horizon to coincide with your anticipated greatest usage

We bought a 72 hour card and was worth it. It includes the HOP-ON-HOP-OFF bus, Panorama bus Tour though the Hop-on-Hop-off bus stopped running daily after end September but was able to get a day's ride on a Sunday 7th oct. The canal route cruise is also not operating after September. Even then it includes public transportation which the tram service would take you to most attractions.

It also includes the ferry trip to Soumenlinna Fortress and entrance fees to most museums. Do not miss Rock Church, Amos Rex, the Panorama Bus Tour and Soumenlinna Fortress built by Swedish if you like history.

Collection is easy at the tourist center at Helsinki Airport which is the most important as most tourist would arrive by Flight or Train. Whereas Stockholm pass is the worst not at airport neither train station but away in a distance location to collect. My Opinion is there is no need for a region card. The train ticket from Airport to Helsinki central train station is only 5 euro in october for ONE way which is reasonable instead of getting a region card to cover the airport zone.

Very handy, lots of free or discounted admissions.. I booked mine 3 weeks in advance but maybe don’t do that as the weather was windy and rainy and therefore some things I wanted to do like the fortress I opted not to do due to unfavourable weather - I feel I could’ve got more value for money with a shorter period than what i used mine for but each to their own schedule.

I bought a 3 day card on line with a 10% discount and did not start using it until the day after I arrived to maximise the value. Public Bus from airport was only 4.60 euro.
I used buses, trams, metro, ferry as well as visiting Suominlinna, Kiasma, Ateneum, Rock church, hop on hop off bus circuit, 1/2 day tour to Arabia factory, Villa Hakasalmi, National Museum of Finland, canal route cruise. It would have cost 3 times as much as the card cost and I enjoyed it all. Fabulous value and so easy.

I bought the 72 hours region pass so I could use the pass to catch public transport from the airport to the city. I was a little apprehensive about purchasing online and picking up from the airport, but found it easy and nothing to worry about. Definitely good value - used the public transport extensively, visited Suomenlinna Fortress and the National Museum, rode on the canal cruise and hop on/off bus, and joined the Urban Helsinki tour.

Bought the 3 day Helsinki card in Australia ($80) and had it posted so that we could start using it on arrival without hassle.
Used it to catch the airport train to the city (30 mins) and then a tram to the hotel.
Then used it for the 2 bus tours and canal tour along with some discounted restaurants.
Found it exc value even tho it rained for the 3 days in Helsinki. Gave us plenty to see and do and only had to show the card.
Worth it

I made an excellent choice to buy the Helsinki card! We saved a lot of money and time, the transport was free, also hop on-hop off bus and boat, entrance to many museums, as well as discounts to some objectives.
Plus, I didn't stand in queues anymore, which was a time-saver.
