This was one of the best tours we have ever had. Inga is a great tour guide and she has in depth knowledge of everything history. Highly recommende! A definite plus was that it was a small tour and had only three people, so we had an even greater immersion into a thousand years of Lithuanian history. Thank you very much for making our tour great.
Hi Viktoryia, We’re very happy to hear that you had a excellent tour with us! We appreciate you mentioning that our guide is knowledgeable and great. Thank you for the warm recommendation and we look forward to your next visit!
A really enjoyable tour in the Lithuanian nature.
We started with the haulocaust memorial of Paneriai (which was a bit frustrating but this is a part of the history and something that we all have to know) and then we were taken to Trakai castle. A really nice site by the lake, the "trade mark" of Lithuania. Don't miss the chance to have a half day off Vilnius, you ll see a part of the country that is really fascinating!
We had Inga as our guide whose devotion to her job, her love for the place and her proffesionalism made this excursion, something to remember! Thank you!
Dear Terry, we really appreciate the opportunity to know your opinion about our tours and guides. Thank's a million for your sweet words and such detailed feedback. Hope to see your again on another our tours! best regards from Discover Lithuania team
This tour was amazing!.Supposed to be a small group, but turned out it was only me. Inga, my tour guide was really wonderful and explained lots of stuff that I did not know. She explained the Jewish heritage in Vilnius then at the Paneriai Memorial Park. She answered my questions and we had good conversation about Lithuania's history afterward. Trakai Castle is really beautiful place surrounding by frozen lake and Inga amazingly explained the history of the castle. I highly recommend this tour to anyone that visit Vilnius!!!
Excellent tour which took in the Jewish heritage of
Vilnius firstly. The trip to Panerirai was moving and
was well explained. The trip to Trakai was the highlight with a full tour of the castle and an explanation of each room. The final stop was tasting some of the most amazing Kibinai.
Very great experience. The tour it's very interesting with special guide who shaw and explain us history and experience..We encorage people use this tour also in winter. the wiews and environment are special and beautiful. Thanks to offer this possibility. We enjoy a lot.
This trip to Paneriai and Trakai Castle was great. As advertised small- group, there were only four of us, which was great and allowed us to take our time. The tour was full of history and our guide was very knowledgeable. As we walked around Paneriai she gave us such details that allowed you to imagine the pain and horror that took place in such a beautiful park. Trakai Castle was beautiful as well. Our guide described things in the museum that I probably would have missed if by myself. We were also given time to try the local pastries which were very yummy and I recommend them. I would recommend this tour to my friends for sure...it is a good way to explore more than Vilnius on your Lithuanian get away.
Highly recommend this tour. Very interesting. We had Andreas as our guide. Andreas is the icing on the cake, he makes the whole tour come to life, he is very knowledgeable and extremely patient. We can not speak highly enough of Andreas he is a credit to the industry
Andreas promptly picked us up at 10:00 in the van. He gave us a brief overview of the Jewish history in Vilna and pointed out some landmarks so we would have context for the Jewish Memorial. Andreas explained everything at the memorial and answered my many questions along the way. I appreciated how knowledgeable he was about the topic and how he addressed all my points. Also, he has a great voice. Andreas should be narrating books. He's great to listen to. We loaded back onto the van and made out way to the castle. It was beautiful and I liked Andreas's narration of Lithuanian history. He kept the castle tour concise so we would have enough time about an hour to wander through the craft stalls and grab a quick bite to eat. Andreas dropped us back at 15:00. It was a wonderful day and very worthwhile trip.
