This was an extraordinary tour of three incredible sites—the somber Paneriai Forest where Nazis did such terrible killing of Jews and others and where now many gray monuments commemorate those lost, the fairy tale castle at Trakai built in the middle of a large lake, and the evocative hill forts of Kernave where Bronze Age pagans once defended themselves and where now 21st century people draw spiritual strength during the summer solstice. Our guide was knowledgeable about all three sites and was able to include a good bit of Lithuanian history in explaining the sites and helping them come alive for us—what exactly happened in the Paneriai Forest, the romantic story of how a duke came to build the castle in the lake for his new bride, and pictures that helped us share a little in the modern-day summer solstice celebration. Throughout, he was considerate, prompt, and affable. We enjoyed being with him on our final day in Vilnius and we’re very grateful to him and to Get Your Guide for ma

Memorable trip. Trakai castle was the highlight. It’s a magical castle on an island. Kibinai pastry is a must to try whilst there local to the area. Kernavè is also very beautiful with a small population residing there. The first capital of Lithuania! Definitely worth the trip. One of my highlights so far from Lithuania was taking this trip. Paneriai is also fascinating too. To hear what went on there was devastating. Would recommend going to the museum of occupations and freedom fights, Paneriai will make much more sense that way.

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 :)

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!

A great trip with loads of history and knowledge provided, thank you Giedrius
