5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

It was an amazing tour... The guide was at a high knowledge level and was able to give to every question a clear answer. Further the guide provided us with pictures about the sights of former times on an Ipad which was also very good to get an imagination about how it was in former times. The walk by feet was not to far and absolutly able to walk. I got more impressions on that tour than I have suggested. Definitvly I recommend you this tour!!!

The tour was really great!
The guide explained lots of the older buildings in Vilnius and put them in historical context.
He also answered loads of my questions and recommended really interesting books about Lithuania as well as restaurants and places to go.
Amazing value for money!
