This was a most fabulous excursion providing history, views, local insight, and excellent value for money. We travelled to Paneriai. This is another harrowing site where genocide took place on a massive scale. Our guide provided all the information without bias, yet making us well aware of the clinical and ruthless atrocities that were committed here. We then went to Trakai where we took a lakeside stroll towards the bridge connecting the islands to the shore. Our guide gave us plenty of time to take photographs, provided us with a guided tour through the castle itself (entry - as advertised - is extra, but very cheap). This is well worth a visit, despite the amount of rebuilding that has taken place over the years. We were given ample time to continue our walk around the outside of the castle and to get some lunch. The local pasties (Kibinai) are delicious and we sampled three flavours. We returned via Kernave, a beautiful UNESCO heritage site. This is an amazing tour. Thank you!

Our tour guide, Cyras, was very nice since the beginning of the tour. He explained everything we saw and took us to many different places. He took us to a place where there was a replica of the houses people used to live in. He explained the history of it very nicely and made sure we understood. He took photos of our family at each of the many different attractions he took us to. He also told us how and where to take good pictures. He took us to a boat tour around the Trakai palace. He made sure we enjoyed our tour.

Our guide, Giedrius Cyrus, was amazing. He provided many details throughout the day which made the trip more memorable. He was flexible with the tour and was very organized.

I was traveling alone with the guide, but he was very nice, tried very hard, very friendly :) Explained everything well and even in halfway German.

Places of interest, knowledgeable and pleasant guide. A nice day in Lithuania.
