I have an extra day to spend in Helsinki at the end of a work trip, in two weeks. I think I'd like to sign up for a bike tour with Bike Tours Helsinki; has anyone tried them before? Any thoughts of the various tours they offer? Is there a better company to go with? I recently went with Steel Donkeys in Barcelona and I've also done Yellow Bike in Amsterdam and enjoyed both, if that gives you an idea. I think I would prefer a small-ish group to ride with.
Second, where to stay? For work, I have reservations at the Hilton Airport, which doesn't seem very convenient to seeing the sights in Helsinki. I can move to another hotel for my extra night(s) but I'm a little overwhelmed by the choices and my unfamiliarity with the city. Am I going to be able to find anywhere near the center for less than $200/night?
