Why walk around a city when you can take the beer bike or the vodka tram? Check out our favourite unusual tours of Europe

See Amsterdam by beer bike

What: Drinking and pedalling whilst taking in the Netherlands’ beautiful capital. You and your mates climb aboard an 18-seater bar on wheels manned by a (sober) driver and help yourselves to unlimited free beer while lending a foot with the pedalling. On this two-hour tour, you’ll enjoy famous sights such as the Canal Belt without worrying about being nicked for drunk driving or speeding – the bar’s top speed is just 6kmph. 

Why: Can you think of a reason why not? Plus there’s a karaoke machine on board, and the best drinker wins a yellow jersey.

Cost: About £354 for up to eight people and £396 for a group of nine-18 people.

See Stockholm by hiking across the rooftops

What: This is no run-of-the-mill walking tour. You’ll be
a dizzying 140ft above the city, but not to worry – you’re secured with safety equipment. And how else could you get a bird’s eye view of the islands on which Stockholm is based? The vista is particularly extraordinary from the rooftop of the Old Parliament building. If you go after dark, your guide will treat you to bloodcurdling stories of murder and mysterious things that go bump in the night. 

Why: If you laugh in the face of normal sightseeing tours and fancy yourself a bit of a daredevil, this is the way to go. 

cost: £30 for 45 minutes.

See Krakow by vodka tram

What: See Krakow’s sights by tram. No ordinary tram, however, as along with the video screens, pumping sound system and plush sofas, it comes with a vodka expert to guide you through the world of Polish vodka, its heritage and how to drink it. See Grand Square with its plethora of imposing landmarks, flower sellers, mime artists and street musicians, all while necking the finest firewater that Poland has to offer. 

Why: Krakow is one of the biggest party zones in Eastern Europe, and the Old Town has more than 400 clubs, bars and pubs. So the tram is the perfect way to get the party started.

cost: One-and-a-half hours of exclusive tram hire with vodka tasting (four shots) and two local beers is around £33 per person, based on a group of 10.
