A fantastic journey done in winter time, full of surprises and (very) off the beaten track. Our guide was great, very knowledgeable, and listened to what we would like the most to do or see! We managed to do two hikes and saw so many different things in just one day. Highlight being the walk to the swamp and an insane statue place. A trip i very strongly recommend.

The bike was an old gear bike, but it was driven. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Made sure everyone stayed on board. The cycling pace was suitable and the breaks in good places suitable. We saw places that I would never have been/couldn't go to myself.

In a short travel, I couldn't see the diversity in Vilnius if i didn't catch bike tour. The guide who Lituania guy is kindly explane a lot of things about history & geographical issue in nowadays. Very thanks to guide us. And highly recommand this tour.

Fantastic day out! Saw a lot of rural Lithuania which was absolutely stunning. Guide couldn’t have been better, highly recommended.

We saw beautiful Lithuanian nature and many other interesting things. The trip was really worth it.
