"When in Helsinki, you will feel left out if you do not hop on a bike! Book this tour and learn what it's like to travel and live in this beautiful capital city! You won't be seeing the sights you can walk to centered around the city center, but rather you will venture outside the tourist-clogged areas and see the sights that are a bit out of the way, but still worth seeing. Riku is a wonderful guide and has many stories to share from his various jobs in the hospitality and entertainment industries of Helsinki." Explorers from U.S. Chicago 2017
