From Vilnius: Trakai Tour with Audio Guide

1. From Vilnius: Trakai Tour with Audio Guide

Depart Vilnius, and then journey by air-conditioned minibus to the former capital of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania in the pretty lakeside town of Trakai. Listen to an informative audio commentary on the 28-kilometer (17-mile) journey, and then get 2.5 hours to explore the historic Old Town at leisure.  See the amazing Insular Castle and well-preserved ruins of Peninsula Castle, constructed in the 14th century before falling into disrepair in the 17th century. Rebuilt after World War II, Insular Castle is now considered a major landmark of Lithuania. Learn about the small ethnic Karaites people who settled in Trakai, along with the Tartars, Russians, Jews and Poles who followed. Enjoy panoramic views of Lake Galvė - the deepest of the region’s 200 lakes - before your return journey to Vilnius.

What people are saying about Trakai

We decided to go on this trip one day before so we booked online. We met as agreed and in a few minutes were on our way to Trakai together with other six tourists. The castle was amazing and the weather was reslly cold. We had lunch afterwards in the vicinity and returned back on time to start our trip back to Malta.

Pick up from the main square in a comfy mini bus. Only 3 of us on the tour and had an interesting commentary video played on the way there. Had 2 and a half hours free time to wander around the area and the castle which was enough time to take plenty of photos and get some delicious local traditional food.

4 hour trip to Trakai. Lovely little town set in beautiful lakes with an impressive castle set on an island. Great, relaxing trip, definitely recommend.

well managed, nice transport.pickup opposite to the vilnius bell tower and the audioguide was quite informative. Would recommend !!

Punctual service. Audio guide in Italian. The castle is beautiful, two hours is enough and more
