          Efficient tour
          Although it was not on the itinerary, he was so kind that he brought us to Sugihara‘s House. We didn’t have an international license and our stay in Lithuania was short so going to the four different places in one day helped us a lot. 1日に4箇所も行けて、日本語であまり紹介されていない箇所(ポナリの森等)が旅程に入っているのがとても魅力的でした。また、日本人だからということで杉原千畝記念館にも寄ってくださいました。(その分他の場所が少し短めになります) リトアニアの滞在期間が短いけれどできるだけ色々な場所に行きたいという方におすすめです。

          Bus Tour of old city
          Bus tour around the old city. Very pleasant and we learnt a lot about the city. 45 minutes to cover all the main places of interest. We enjoyed it.

          Don't get a guide and we were crammed into a small vehicle.
          We paid for a van for our party of 3. Instead, we all had to cram in the back of a regular car for the long ride, while our guide had plenty of room up front with the driver. Our tour guide was not great with English. He could not answer the actual questions we asked, but instead would change the subject to some script he had memorized. In addition, he attempted to tell jokes which were racist and we did not find funny. When I contacted the vendor I got no response. I feel that I didn't get what we paid for.

          Nice place, beautiful castle. It is very easy to approach it by car. Nice little village Trakai around the castle, with old houses

          This is a long day out from Vilnius. My guide was late and got lost a few times. The Hill of Crosses is amazing, do take time to walk to the top and/or along some of the twisty, windy, paths. They sell crosses at booths near the entrance, but I had brought one from home.Think about how you will attach the cross, some nylon fishing line, wire, or small chain could work. Take a photo of it inlace and if possible also pose it next to some larger or more distinguishable items. At my request we skipped the town of Siauliai and returned directly to Vilnius.

          Tour tailored to my request
          With less than a week in the country and unable to travel to the areas where my ancestors lived, this was a great alternative. My guide spoke excellent English, he made sure I got to see the parts of the Rumsiskes open air museum that were pertinent to my family, even inquiring at the office if there were any publications about these regions. He picked me up at the back entrance so I wouldn't have to retrace my steps. We then headed to Kaunas where I saw the castle ruins, town hall plaza, a burgher's house, and several churches. We had lunch at an outdoor cafe-very reasonable. As it was a Monday and the monastery wasn't open and really wasn't on my must see list, we skipped it, instead stopping at Akopolis Mall at a basketball store where I made a purchase.

          Hill of Crosses and Siauliai Tour
          We had wanted to visit the Hill of crosses so we asked hotel concierge to help us book an excursion. They booked for us a private audio guided day trip with vilnius city tour and it was a fantastic experience worth every penny. Having a comfortable van for the two and a half hour trip to our destination made it all the more easier and in these Covid19 times being just the two of us made us feel so much safer. Info given along the way was clear and interesting. We had all the time to visit, take photos and buy souvenirs then the driver did two stops in Siauliai to visit the Cathedral, take photos in the Christmas decorated square as well as with the Iron Fox near the frozen lake and The Golden Archer. Definitely recommend this company especially as they do offer the option if only two people want to take a particular excursion - naturally price is a bit more than if with a group but very reasonable.

          A beautiful day in Kaunas
          I was lucky to be the only person taking this trip on that day. My Guide Jurata was very friendly, and insightful. We spent time at the Kaunas Rumsiskes, where we visited various old Lithuanian settlements. We also toured the Pazaislis monastry as well as Kaunas Old town and castle. She took time to present the cultural and historical background behind the settlements. That did help in appreciating Lithuanian history as well as Lithuanian society historically and in contemporary times. Personally, it was one of the most insightful tour I have ever experienced. For me it was an amazing experience.

          Easy Way to Visit Trakai Castle which is well worth seeing.
          The company offers either a guided trip including castle museum @ 40 euros or an audio trip only @ £20 euros, the castle entrance fee is included on the former and excluded on the latter. We decided on the cheaper version and the recorded commentary was quite audible and reasonable. The castle is well worth seeing, I think it is the most visited place in Lithuania. You can take a boat trip on the lake around the castle for a reasonable 5 euros, it takes about 30 minutes. Comfortable, modern minibus and ran to the advertised times. It leaves from the Cathedral Square with a couple of other pick ups by prior arrangement. The Castle closed to the public on 13 March along with all other museums in Vilnius until further notice due to coronavirus but you can still walk round the outside on the island, hopefully the closure will not be for too long

          A good short tour
          You get picked up in Vilnius and driven to Trakai (about 30 mins) in a comfortable mini bus. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. She spoke in English but they also provided audio guides in other languages. You have about 2 -2.5 hours in Trakai. About an hour of that time is taken up with the guided tour of the castle by the same guide as on the mini bus then you have about an hour of free time before the bus takes you back to Vilnius. We went in winter and so did not want to linger outside for long but I can imagine in summer this could feel a bit rushed. Also we brought our own food. There are cafes/restaurants at Trakai but bear in mind that you will not have a huge amount of time to eat before returning back to the mini-bus.

          Nice and easy trip outside Vilnius.
          It was a nice trip with pretty area around the castle. I booked through the trip advisor. It was easy to find the bus, although the number on the reservation confirmation was not working we were able to get to the right bus. The trip took around 30 minutes and I really like the guide Anna, who was very interesting and pleasant in sharing information about her country.

          Great day out
          Ok, so you can take a tour from Vilnius to Trakai for about 20-30 euros a person. However you can also do you own thing and go. Y public bus and train which take about 40 minutes each. The cost was 2euros on the bus and 1.85 euros for a very smart train. The stations are about 2km (bus) and 2.5km (train) from the castle. It’s a pleasant walk. The castle is on a little island which you get to over a wooden bridge. The entry was 8 euros a person and this gave you access to all three floors of the castle and the building next to it. There are some very steep stairs so not suitable for all. The exhibits are really interesting and you can see just what a good job they have made of restoring the castle. The toilets are very clean and modern. Overall. A really good day out and a nice break from Vilnius and something different to do.

        I had the opportunity to visit incredibly interesting places that I had never heard of, such as the Hill of Crosses, with an interesting story of struggle and sacrifice of a people over many years that was totally ignored by many other cultures and yet it should have international significance. Rundale Palace, baroque style with exquisite interior and exterior ornamentation, in addition to possessing an innumerable amount of historical objects from the 18th and 19th centuries belonging to the German Emperor William I and his family 👪. Then, Bauska Castle, although observed from a distance, represents an important building in the fight against the Russian empire for the freedom of the Latvian, Estonian and Lithuanian peoples. The excursion was really very interesting from the beginning, getting to know both Lithuania and Latvia and a journey of indescribable beauty of landscapes. I recommend it to you
