If you’d prefer a shorter, more affordable tour that uses the city’s accessible tram system instead of an accessible van, we recommend the Essential Helsinki Accessible Walking Tour. Or, if you would be more comfortable with our most accessible option, that involves very little walking/rolling and has earned a 5 star Sage Accessibility Rating, consider the 3 hour Panoramic Helsinki Accessible Driving Tour.
