Happy Tours Helsinki has two sites where you can start the tour, so it does not matter where you are staying in Helsinki-it should not be too far a way to get to the start point. My friend and I walked to the bike shop in less than 15 minutes. The bike tour is a great way to see Helsinki and learn the history of the area. Our guide, Anssi, was very informative, pleasant and accomodating. We had already been on a walking tour and seen some of the sights such as Senate square. He still took us there for the benefit of a couple of other riders who had not been there before, but he also took us to areas that we had not been and I had mentioned that I would like to see. In addition, although it is not mentioned in the description of the tour, for no extra cost, we were treated to coffee, (or another drink of our choice) and a not excessively sweet spice cake. SInce, I am not a coffee drinker, I chose the berry juice. It was excellent. My friend said the coffee was also very good. The biking is not strenuous and we saw sights that we might have missed on our own.

I rode on the short tour (3-4 hours) during a long layover at the Vantaa airport. Anssi was a great tour leader, working to make everyone comfortable and giving details about where we were and what we were seeing. I especially enjoyed the stop of cake and coffee (included in the price). It was a good opportunity to get to know the other riders, all of whom were from other parts of the world. There are a few hills on the route, but the ride overall was quite easy, with gorgeous views and lots of fresh air.

For those who want to try to squeeze a tour in during a layover: there are luggage lockers in the lowest level of terminal 2. You can also leave luggage with a manned service across from the lockers. I got a large locker for 6 euros. Then it was upstairs and out the door where the 615 shuttle bus stops. I bought the ticket on board and went all the way to the main station downtown. Then a short shuttle ride over to the starting point. They will give you directions by email. I made it from the plane to the bike tour in about an hour (no checked bags to pick up).

Did a bike tour with Anssi in the beginning of August and it was great. He was very knowledgable about the history and culture of Helsinki and lead a great tour. This is the perfect way to see a city and the 3 hour tour was a fairly easy ride that took in many of the sites we wanted to see in Helsinki. Would definitely recommend this tour.

Our family of 4 had a fabulous time on our bike tour of Helsinki. Our guides were awesome. They were so friendly and enjoyable to be with. They were knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor at the same time. While the bike ride was not strenuous, we did probably ride for about 7 miles or more. We made several stops for pics. I HIGHLY recommend this tour!

We had an awesome time on the beer sightseeing tour of Helsinki. Daniela our guide was friendly, fun and really knowledgeable. We visited 3 breweries along the way as well as taking in loads of sights in and around Helsinki. The beers were great and Daniela obviously knows her stuff and loves beer. Make sure you eat before though as the tasters are quite generous. It was such a fun way to explore a city. Highly recommended
