We booked a tour at the 11th hour with Andrius of Discover Lithuania, and he was fantastic.

Andrius was enormously helpful in organising things at the last minute.

He met us at our hotel in Vilnius and was prompt and welcoming, with very good spoken English. He then drove us in his Mercedes 4wd around the old town of Vilnius, explaining much of the history of the Jewish ghettos as we went.

We then headed out to the Panerai Memorial Park, where Andrius explained the appalling, sad, but fascinating history of the Lithuanian holocaust – all with care and sensibility.

Thereafter, Andrius drove us to Trakai. There, we visited the beautiful castle, with Andrius providing very interesting commentary all along.

We finished in a little old local eating house, dining (on Andrius’ recommendation) on Kibinas (savoury pastries, synonymous with the local Karaim population) and chicken broth – delicious!

We would recommend Andrius and Discover Lithuania to everyone – very professional, great communication, reliable service, friendly, informative, and fun.

We did the private tour to Paneriai Memorial and Trakai. Our guide Andres was very friendly and helpful! He shared lots of information during the Tour. Paneriai was very interesting, considering it is important on Lithuania history. Trakai is very beautfil and worth go inside the Castle.

Pick up was punctual and in a Mercedes minivan. Our guide Inga spoke great English, was very clearly spoken and had plenty of information and stories. Despite the rainy weather we had a good day and Trakai castle is definitely a must-see if you are in Vilnius.

We booked the tour Trakai Castle and Paneriai Memorial. Pick up from our hotel was on time and the tour as a whole was well organized. Our tour guide Andres was very knowledgeable and provided us with excellent information concerning both the Paneriai Memorial with its dark history as well as Trakai with its wonderful castle and town. Highly recommendable.
