Unique Trip & Pilgrimage Site!

When I saw this trip listed, I knew i had to go! The Hill of Crosses is weird & unique & wonderful! My guide, Andrius, was excellent!! I learned so much about the history of Lithuania & culture along the journey & enjoyed some authentic Lithuanian food (Cepelinai)!! It's worth the trip & if you want to go to the Shrine of our Lady of Siluva where Mary appeared years ago (a Catholic Pilgrimage site) instead, ask in advance because I was able to go there in place of Anyksciai & also visit the Tytuvenai Monastery and the Lyduvenu Dubysa Railway Bridge (longest railway in Lithuania)! Discover Lithuania is the absolute best & you're missing out if you don't use them on your travels!!!

A wonderful day taking in Lithuania and its historical past. Awe inspiring views, culture and its beauty. Andrius our guide, was really informative, and pointed out lots of extras on the day. Be prepared for a long drive but you get to view the country's topography and wildlife. Well worth the cost and would definitely recommend seeing the Hill of Crosses. Both beautiful and poignant.

A great daytrip with a good mix of activities and sites to visit.

This is a great tour to do if you only have limited time yet want to see a bit of everything - from the Hill of Crosses to the canopy tree walk, and culture and history visiting the horse, ethnography and train museums. Our guide Inge was fantastic and imparted a lot of knowledge during the daytrip.

The tour with Egle was wonderful. She introduced us to the sights of Vilnius with her calm demeanor and competent explanations. She also conveyed the historical and artistic aspects to us in an excellent way. We were very satisfied and thank you very much for that.
