Anna was so knowledgeable and so thorough. Her friendly smile and lovely personality was a bonus.!!!
We really enjoyed this tour although it probably primarily has appeal to those who already have an interest in Jewish history or have family ties to Vilnius. What we most appreciated is that the guide pointed out spots, landmarks and memorials that we certainly would have either missed or not known what to make of had we not had a guide.
My guide, Tomas, was very knowledgeable, and showed me so many Jewish sites in Vilnius. Many would have been difficult to get to by public transportation. I feel that I was able to make the most of my short stay in Vilnius during this tour.
This tour was worth every penny. My guide Justina was extremely intelligent, well-informed and impassioned. We had many fascinating discussions. I learned a great deal from her and was moved by the tour. She couldn't have been better.
