This was an excellent tour to take. The guide, Natalia, was very informative and helpful. Being able to choose a pickup time was very nice - we chose a 9am pickup, and the guide/car was prompt. Arriving early at Trakai was advantageous due to the crowd that arrived later in the day. I highly recommend this tour.

What a beautiful picturesque spot! Just wish we had more time there. Maybe in the future Viator will offer a full day trip there. Just a short ride for Vilnius. Great guide and driver!!!

A great tour from the City and into the countryside. Again my guide was fantastic the same as I had on the Vilnius City Sightseeing Tour and provided me with plenty of time to explore Trakai after showing me around and giving me a good overview of the history. Well worth the day trip.

The place requests more than a couple of hours to visit. It was a quite good guide but we had to rush
