Amazing trip, our guide Giedrius is super friendly and informative. We went in January when the day is shorter, but we managed to cover all the places before it gets dark without feeling that it's too rushed. He managed to keep the pace really well and also provide us with many information about the sights that we are visiting. Thank you so much Giedrius, would recommend this activity to everyone looking to explore Trakai and Kaunas in one day :)

When my guide learned I was interested in two specific regions, made I got to see them. He asked if there were books for the regions. We walked through old Kaunas and had a nice lunch, my treat. When he found out I needed a basketball shirt for a special friend, we detoured to a basketball shop at Akropolis.

Very interesting tour, but I think that the visit is short for the places that are visited. We ate in 15 minutes to make the most of the time. Tour in English with a guide who had to make an effort to explain in this language (there was no tour in Spanish).

A wonderful experience! The travel guide was so knowledgeable and informative. He learned what we were interested in an tailored the tour to us. I would highly recommend this tour!

Our guide Giedrius was great,the tour went perfect and we had a great time.
