A really overwhelming experience!!!! The Lithuanians have suffered much over the last century and this just shows how their faith kept them going. At in a nice restaurant on the way back. A long ride but worth the trip!!!!

We enjoyed our tour, our guide Victoria was lovely with excellent English. She was very knowledgable and we all learned a lot about Lithuania from her. The driver was very capable and we all felt safe . Our lunch spot was very nice and Victoria recommended typical local food that we could try.
