Full day out
Anyone visiting Vilnius should undertake a small group tour to Trakai Castle. It commences with a visit to the Jewish Quarter in the Old City. It continues to Paneriai Memorial Park which is a very moving experience. The tour concludes with the picturesqueTrakai Castle before returning to the city. Hopefully, you would be fortunate enough to have an experienced, knowledgeable, enthusiastic guide like Andreas.

Servizio come sempre impeccabile. Non ho dato 5 stelle per Trakai che mi ha un po’ delusa. Mi aspettavo fosse piu pittoresco. In realtà il castello è molto rifatto. Cmq e’ stato tutto interessante. La nostra guida/autista alla fine ci ha lasciato al museo del KGB: un’ottima idea!

Andrus/Andreas was informed, articulate, nuanced in his observations and very good company. He paced the experience skillfully, and prepared us for the emotional impact of the information he shared. He made our time in Vilnius deeply meaningful.
