“ALL SIDES OF VILNIUS”
A bicycle city-tour is probably one of the best ways possible to get to know a new city. By bicycle, you can travel a lot farther than by foot, but experience everything up close, in a way that you wouldn’t by bus. Our “All Sides of Vilnius” tour is not your typical city tour. Rather than being a one-sided story-telling by knowledgeable but tired tour-guide, our tour is interactive – the guide, while still knowledgeable, places all the emphasis on encouraging questions, comments, and every manner of participation from the guests, making the tour more of an adventure of discovery, uniquely tailored to suit your needs. Because of this, every time the tour is run, it ends up being a little bit different, and we never do the same tour twice 🙂 The tour “All Sides of Vilnius” shows you the many faces of Vilnius, taking you through the historical Old Town, a modern business sector, a rural neighbourhood of little wooden houses, and a Soviet-era neighbourhood. This medley of different time-periods and architectural styles creates a picture of a city, which is unusual, unexpected, and unforgettable. This city tour shows not only the beautiful old town that is enjoyed by so many tourists, but also the everyday Vilnius, with a unique local perspective. See Vilnius as it really is – with its joys and worries, grandeur and mundane routine, modernity and parochialism. For the visitor to Vilnius, this is the perfect opportunity taste the city’s vivacity, feel the rhythm of Vilnius life and feel like a local, while at the same time, learning about the city’s history, legends, language, and culture.
