“Cycle the city and see the sites very quickly.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

Easy to book online, no upfront payment which was great for us as we were down one starter due to a Segway accident in Strasbourg. Dani our guide was really enthusiastic, she had a very good knowledge of Finnish history and the features of the landmarks we visited and in addition spoke perfect English. The trip was very well organised, bikes were in very good condition, the cycling itself was on cycle paths about 95% of the time (and you get plenty of warning when you won't be on paths) and really nothing to talk about concerning hills (anyone with a modicum of fitness could do the tour). Do this at the start of your stay in Helsinki - far better than a hop on hop off bus, you will get to know the city within 3 hours or so and you will burn a few calories to boot.

“Helsinky on a Bike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

Found Bicyclean Helsinki on Tripadvisor and booked a private day trip in advance. Even before I got there, the team was very prompt, clear and helpful via email. Got to the shop very easily per their directions and met my guide, Anssi, who guided me for a few hours through the city, stopping at various sites, markets. Had a great time. Anssi was very pleasant, flexible, knowledgeable and very easy to talk to. We rode for about 3-4 hours and got to see the lay of the land pretty well. It was a great way to see the city. Recommended highly for value, service and overall experience. A great way to be introduced to Finnish culture.

“Great way to immerse yourself in the city!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

We are a family of 5 who were burnt out of museum and church tours of Europe. This was a great way to explore the city while feeling energized at the same time.

Helsinki offers the best way to ride a bike. This is because, we have more than 1000 Km of cycle path to get everywhere, cyclist respect other's rights and has a very light traffic of vehicles.
So this makes your trip around our city, the best experience.

“Best way to see Helsinki”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014 via mobile

I went on a 4 hour tour of the city with Anssi and it was awesome! It completely changed my perception of Helsinki. Anssi is a great guide and super friendly guy and took us all over the city and even a few areas off the beaten path. It was hands down the best thing I did in Helsinki. Just do it you won't regret it.

“Get there early!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

I rented a bike from them on a Sunday. I picked them because they had longer opening hours than other places and good prices. On their website they say that they always have some bikes, but arriving at 10am I grabbed pretty much that last "hybrid" bike. However, the weather was supposedly unusually good for Helsinki so that probably explains that.

The bike was in good condition and I was given a great map as well as great advice about things to do and see.

The day rate (29€) was a bit expensive for me, but that the case for every in Helsinki.
