Hope this helps.
The tour starts with a bus drive to the Russian Market, where you can buy almost everything. From smoked and raw meat up to worn out shoes and electronic things. Flowers, fish, clothes and funeral stuff... maybe a little bit bizarr for foreigners, but quite common for locals to buy different things for small money.
After that the guide takes you to Snipiskes. This area gives you an idea how some people live outside the city centre. No tarred roads lead you through this area of small properties with shabby houses. Most of them with no water connections inside the house. Some even burnt-down. Nevertheless you still got some quite modern houses in between.
Another bus drive takes you to the station area. This part of the tour is especially attractive for people, who are interested in arts. Big paintings on house walls from different artists and a big guy in pants ;-) will be on your way. And you will have a short minute at a John Lennon monument.
The tour ends at a market hall. You should go there and have a delicious bagel!
The tour took 2,5 - 3 hours and beside the two bus drives you have to walk quite long, so prepare comfortable shoes ;-)
I really liked the "Alternative Tour"! Thanks a lot to the friendly guides, you made a really good job! And thanks for all the interesting stories during the tour!
