Tallinn Helsinki Ferry reviews

  • "Tallinn to Helsinki"

    The liner sized ferry was punctual, clean and well turned out. It was a pleasant way to travel the 2 hours to Helsinki then back to Tallinn. I would recommend it.

  • "Great trip"

    Really easy to book tickets online, very good value too. Staff at the port were friendly and helpful and it was really easy to simply board with the tickets we'd printed out. Ferry was clean and very well presented, with comfortable seating and lots of options of quiet spaces or bars with music, shops and food. Very happy to recommend Eckero Line.

  • "Perfect, for the West Harbour"

    I chose Eckero Line because I knew the ship would arrive in the West Harbour of Helsinki, which was perfect for my onward trip on the St Peter Line to St Petersburg, as that was where my departure point in Helsinki was from. The ferry was similar to other ferries i'd used before by other operators between the cities. The price was also very competitive. The only negative was them demanding I had to be there 75 minutes before departure, which was clearly not the case. I'd say 30 minutes is a more reasonable time to state and one based on truth. I could have spent an 30-40 minutes doing better things in Tallinn or my hotel rather than waiting around and watching the ferry arrive in port, then unloading vehicles.
