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.

Vilnius: Then and Now Old Town Tour

2. Vilnius: Then and Now Old Town Tour

Vilnius is a beautiful city, renowned for it's green spaces and Baroque architecture. It is also a very old city with lots of history, which nuances are best presented by a local Lithuanian. We recommend starting your tour where the history of the city began 10,000 years ago at the Cathedral Square. Other meeting points in the Old town would also work, however this one is recommended. Walking through important buildings, streets and other objects you will find out how Lithuania emerged from the swamps to become a self-sufficient country, how it came to its fall, what was the situation during the Soviet occupation and what the situation is now.

What people are saying about Vilnius

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.

Tutto perfetto, guida eccezionale. Ci ha raccontato la storia di Vilnius e della Lituania durante il tragitto (che abbiamo troviamo molto interessante) e poi ci ha accompagnato anche dentro al castello. Super consigliato!

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.
