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!

With Jurate we had a very competent and amiable tour guide. She informed us about the history of the city of Kaunas in a very knowledgeable and professional manner.

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