I was expecting an audio machine when I booked this but ended up with an actual tour guide providing information whilst on the bus trip over from Vilnius to Trakai. No complaints there as she was rather informative. When arrived in Trakai it was pretty much free and easy. Worth paying €8 to enter the castle ground and also to walk around the surrounding area of the outer castle grounds (which is free). However if travellers requires an audio guide or have a guide to explain the rich history of Trakai, this may not be the type of tour they would have in mind.
Our guide was very good. He was interested in the things he told us so he presented them in an interesting and lively way, not only as if reading out of a book. We also liked his humane view-points. And he put in an extra effort to walk us to a restaurant that we asked about. He also answered our questions very dutifully.
Short and sweet. Buss will take you almost to the castle, you'll have two and half hours to explore, and then you go home. Two hours was enough for castle and a lunch. Castle itself was meh, but museum inside was good.
Our tour guide (Agnes) was absolutely amazing! She was super nice and knowledgeable about the history of Trakai. She provided a very delightful tour that I would recommend to anyone Vilnius.
Our guide Andres was very knowledgeable, friendly and polite. He explained in detail about the Lithuanian history. Paneriai Memorial is very impressive and Trakai Castle is amazing.
