Efficient, clean, easy to use and on time. Just remember to get your ticket from the machine at the tram stop just before you get on board

Helsinki is small enough to walk and you don't really need the tram to get around but what a great way to get a feel for the city. An easily navigable tram system and I thoroughly enjoyed a couple of hours hopping on and off...More

This is a very easy system to use. I took one star off because pricing is a bit bizarre. The ticket (a single) gives you two hours once you have first activated it. Transport in other parts of Europe is more flexible and cheaper.

We purchased 24hr tram tickets and were able to go all around Helsinki to see many of the sights. Easy to figure out the routes!

I have no words to describe my experience on HSL!! It's the best (in absolute) transport system i have ever used. There is certainly no comparison the the italian ones. You can buy tickets by credit cards with an app on your phone without beaurocracy...More

The Trams in Helsinki are really good. Running through the city center and out in to the suburbs of Helsinki, they are a great way to see a little more of the city, than just the usual sites. Allways on time and usually with plenty...More

We found the tram to be comfortable and useful at times. It was a great way to get around Helsinki. Sometimes getting to your location did take much longer than expected so plan ahead if you need to be somewhere at a specific time.

I think it was about 74 pounds a card. I think we got our value out of them, and they did make some activities easier.

A HSL 3-day ticket will facilitate travel between the airport and the city. It costs about €12 per day, that is €36 in total.
