Solo Traveller

Andreas was a fantastic host. Wonderful speaker and full of knowledge. Easy pickup and a great day seeing Lithuania.



Solo Traveller

This was my first ever tour, usually just exploring solo or whoever I’m with, but it’s definitely inspired me to do others. It was interesting and insightful, made the descriptions and places far more engaging than just looking and wandering around. Having someone with local knowledge brought the sites to life far more than just doing it by yourself. He was there ahead of schedule and was patient while I took a few minutes to find my wallet. He was chatty and friendly and I learnt a lot, on far more than just the places we visited too, his passion for the history makes it even more engaging.
Fully recommended and an enjoyable day



Group Traveller

the sites. Comfortable ride, good conversation, and interactive. Would highly recommend.



Solo Traveller

I really enjoyed this tour. I was on a private tour by myself. My guide Andrus was great, very knowledgeable and his English was perfect. I learned a lot about Lithuanian history from him.
Trakai castle is a stunning site, definitely a must do when you are in Vilnius.
I can highly recommend this tour.
