What People Are Saying About Vilnius
We were picked up at exactly 10am by our tour guide, Andres, who was friendly, and the perfect guide to show us around Trakai Castle and the Paneriai Memorial. We were lucky enough to be the only people on the tour. First we were given a tour and a short guide to the Jewish ghettos in Vilnius, and then we were driven to the memorial. My girlfriend and I had no idea just how brutal the history of this area really was, and our guide was deeply respectful, and very knowledgeable on the whole subject. After a walk around the area in the forest, we were driven to Trakai Castle, which is absolutely as beautiful as it looks in all the photos. Andres is passionate about Lithuanian history, and one can't help but think of Game of Thrones as he enthusiastically recounts how Lithuania was formed. You could visit these sites on your own, but you will learn SO much more if you take this tour, and especially if you're lucky enough to have Andres as a guide.
Practical transportation to Trakai. Great guide on the bus and at the Castle. Enough free time to walk around and have lunch. A very comfortable way to visit a place where no public buses or trains can bring you all the way there.
We were picked up on time by our wonderful guide from our apartment and were given a tour of the small and large ghettos where an excellent explanation of the Jewish context was sensitively explained. We drove to Paneriai Memorial Park and our guide escorted us around the different memorials whilst explaining the horrors that the Jews faced in their tragic end. We had no ideas of the details of how the Victims had met with their horrific fate in the woods having seen the death pits that marked the ends of their lives. It made us think as we headed out to Trakai Castle and our wonderful guide explained the Lithuanian history of the Duke who wanted to be king and his vision of a multi cultural army. Our guide took us into every room in the castle and we had an excellent tour of this beautiful restored castle. Our guide took us home after we had a snack in the cafe and recommended our amazing restaurant for our evening meal. He also sorted out our taxi transfer to the airportthanks
We had an interesting tour of the city brought to life by our extremely knowledgeable guide Kristofer who took us to parts of the city and places of interest we could not have discovered on our own in particular the church of St Peter and Paul. Our guide told us interesting stories of his family and childhood growing up in Vilnius during Soviet times and brought to life the city's rich cultural heritage with his sensitive knowledge and understanding of Lithuanian history. We had an excellent time and the tour enhanced our visit to this beautiful city. Thank you
I was living in Vilnius for 5 years, but didn't know few interesting facts about city. We had 3 kids with us - tour saved us lots of time and energy (comparing traveling on foot with children).
