The trip with Andreas was very good. He was incredibly friendly and graceful and provided excellent guidance in a very difficult part of Lithuanian (human) history. Well worth it.

Family Traveller

My family and I recently did this tour on our trip to Vilnius. Our guide Andreas picked us up punctually from our hotel. He was very friendly and polite. Firstly we visited the ghetto then on to Paneriai Memorial Park. Andreas gave us lots of information. We have visited several holocaust sites and as always it is a very sobering experience. We then visited Trakai Castle which was very pretty in the winter sunshine. After an hours free time Andreas took us back to the hotel. We were all totally satisfied with the tour and would highly recommend it.



Family Traveller

Our guide Andres was very knowledgeable, friendly and polite. He explained in detail about the Lithuanian history. Paneriai Memorial is very impressive and Trakai Castle is amazing.
