For several years I have been taking my visiting friends to see my home town on this lovely pub tram. It's a great way to see the city. I especially recommend this option to people who are not interested in hearing every detail about the city as there is no guide. (For guided tours, I recommend Helsinki Expert's bus tours)... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip. We left our tour group to go find the Pub Tram. It was worth it. We caught up with the tram at the main station and hopped on. Paid for our ticket about 7 euros and ordered a beer. We rode through the city seeing some of the same things that... More

This is a nicely remodeled tram car where you ride for 45 minutes while you drink beer, wine, or cocktails. You board the red train to the side of the main train station at the top of the hour. You sit in an air conditioned old tram that that has about 22 seats. It was an enjoyable time to relax... More

This was cool! The inside is done up like an old pub. Takes about 45 minutes and leaves from the eastern side of railway square.

The Pub Tram is a superb way to take a relaxing 45 minute mini-tour of Helsinki. You will see various areas of the city and it’s people up close, all while enjoying a cold beer. The tram operator and bartender were very welcoming and up spirited. The interior of the rest room equipped tram is superb, with woodworking normally seen... More

Its expensive, the route doesn't take you thru any main tourist areas, the pick up location is difficult to find, BUT this is awesome! Its a tram. . . with beer. . . in Helsinki. Have a few drinks and enjoy the ride.

This is a fun outing to do! The beautiful wood finished interior of the tram complete with Bar is a very pleasant way to enjoy a 40minute ride through the sights of Helsinki while enjoying a beer, cider or soft drink. A commentary is provide of each areA and there is a clean toilet on board!

Due to the weather in Helsinki this tram has a very limited season. We saw it on Saturday and wanted to try it on Sunday but it had shut. A tiny sign said "see you in May". So check the website before you get too excited. It closed for winter on 6 September 2015.

It seemed something I wanted to try so I did. It is quite nice but something is missing. You just sit there, drink something (it's a pub) and try to see something from the window. Maybe I expected too much before I went. It is just 45 min tour around the city and views are not very good, not from... More
