Amazing tour which accommodated our young kids
Beautiful tour which accommodated our 6 and 3 year olds. Tour guide was just amazing, we learned so
much and saw such beautiful and historic places. Price is totally worth it and would recommend to
anyone traveling with or without children. Thank you!!
The tour guid was amazing very informative and had a great sense of humour. Would highly
recommend this tour
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.
