Our guide, Milde, arrived punctually to pick us up for the tour and gave us an enlightening commentary about the Curonian Spit, its geography and its history. He also provided insights on the lifestyle of the locals peppered with his own experiences. Moreover, he showed us hidden gems e.g. a cafe set in the pine forest away from the maddening crowds of tourists.

Die Kurische Nehrung ist einen Ausflug wert

Schön war‘s, auch wenn es beinahe nicht geklappt hätte. Wir standen zur vereinbarten Zeit am vereinbarten Ort und keiner kam, uns abzuholen. Der angekündigte Guide hatte uns oder die Tour überhaupt wohl vergessen. Nach telefonischer Kontaktaufnahme mit dem Veranstalter Baltic Tours wurden wir 20 Minuten später von einem netten, sehr gut Deutsch sprechenden Guide mit Namen Arnoldis mit einem Van mit Fahrer aufgesammelt. Im Van saßen schon zwei Ehepaare, die vom gleichen Schiff wie wir kamen, eine private Tour war es dadurch natürlich nicht mehr . Aber alle waren nett und so wurde dies Tour doch noch zum erwarteten Erlebnis. Unser Führer war sehr sachkundig und brachte uns die Schönheiten der Gegend und die litauische Geschichte und die besondere Geschichte von Nida näher. Alle besonderen Orte haben wir gesehen. Auch eine Rundfahrt durch Klaipeda mit Halt auf dem Theaterplatz gab es noch. Eine insgesamt schöne Tour trotz des holprigen Beginns!
