A great walking tour of Vilnius

We had a really good walking tour with Viktoria. She had a lot of interesting historical facts about Vilnius, that kept us engaged as we walked around the city.
An Insider's Tour of Old-Town Vilnius
John_R, Mar 2020
This was a true "insiders" tour, that turned out to be a private tour for us. Our guide, Jelena Sozinova, was born and brought-up in Old-Town Vilnius, making her the perfect guide for this tour. She told us stories about the town over the years and took us behind the scenes (literally behind buildings) to show us and educate us on things about Vilnius that we would never have experienced on our own. The tour was well organized. We had so many questions along the way and Jelena was always helpful (eager) to answer them; this tour was more insightful than I could have hoped for.
Wonderful Walking Tour!

What a great tour, and our wonderful tour guide, Vilija was the best -- great personality, knowledgeable & interesting! My husband & I just happened to be in Vilnius on the 30th anniversary of the Baltic Way when, on August 23, 1989, two million people from Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania joined hands to form a 650-kilometre human chain to show their desire for independence from the Soviet Union. We met Vilija at the Cathedral Square where the celebration was taking place. It was very moving especially since my mother was Latvian and Vilija’s pride and love of country was obvious. We were the only two on the tour so we were able to ask Vilija all the questions we wanted which allowed us to make it personal. Vilija provided us with great historical information regarding the occupation of Lithuania and how the Baltic Way demonstration was orchestrated. Very interesting information about the resolve of the people of Lithuania and the rest of the Baltic countries. The walking tour was fabulous and Vilija made sure we stayed on track to see and learn about all the key sights despite our digressions. Vilnius is a wonderful place to visit and this tour is a great way to get acquainted with the town and the people. Highly recommend it to start off your visit!
Fantastic way to start your visit

Had a brilliant time. Anna was great, she is entertaining, loves her city and you will fall in love right along with her as she takes you on a new adventure around every corner. Your only disappointment will be when the tour comes to an end.
Wonderful Vilnius experience

Viktorija was the best tour guide. She helped show old town and other parts of Vilnius and helped even taking pictures and sending to me since my camera died. If you are in Vilnius this is by far the best tour you can do for yourself.

Florent A, Sep 2015
I wanted to make a regular city tour, but as there wasn't enough people I winded up in a food tour. At the beginning it was ok because we would go to café, sat and had samples of cheese with a tiny glass of alcohol with explanations but the second half of the tour was very disappointing. We've been proposed to taste some chocolate in a shop. It wasn't very interesting and the sample were so small that I couldn't even get the taste of it. It was almost like dust. Then we went to the bio market in Uzupis and honestly I felt that if I've been there by myself it wouldn't have made a big difference.

Marilyn W, Jun 2014
This was a great tour. Not a typical old buildings tour. We sampled Lithuanian bread, cake, cheese and beer. Learned about the life of the people and saw parts of Vilnius we probably would have missed on our own.

3時間というコンパクトな時間の中で、ヴィルニュスの名所を効率的に回って説明が聞けます。ガイドのAnnaさんもとてもお話が面白く、あっという間の3時間でした。ビルニュス は一人で街をぶらぶらしても楽しい街ですが、ガイドさんのお話を聞くとまた違った見え方があると思います。
