Nice and informative informative walk through vilnius
The tour guide Elsa took me and my girlfriend on a nice walk through Vilnius and told us many stories about Lithuania under soviet rule. We did the tour pretty much off season so it was just the three of us on the tour. We got the chance to ask all sorts of questions and got great answers and good tips on how to spend the rest of our time in Vilnius. Thank you Elsa!
Vilnius Soviet-Themed Walking Tour
Great tour!
This is quite a long tour, but well worth it. (Don't worry, there's a break for coffee). The guide is very interesting to listen to, it's not just the regular repeating of facts. We learned a lot from this tour. Fantastic stories!

We had the pleasure of a guided tour provided by one of your guides, Martyna, this sunday. It was a very inspiring tour and your tourguide Martyne made it very interesting. We took the Soviet tour.

Vilnius Ghost & Legends Tour
Ieva brought a forgotten era to life
For anyone in Vilnius, be you a regular visitor, a weekend guest or even a local, I highly recommend the Soviet walking tour. Ieva was the guide during my trip and she brought such charisma and charm to what is a dark chapter in the memory of many Lithuanians. Her passion for history, especially the human aspect of it lead me to learn many things that you can't read about in travel guides or online articles. She was happy to answer any question and suggested movies and further reading to build on what we discussed. Whether you have just arrived in Vilnius or are at the end of your stay, don't hesitate to go, you'll soon see the city in a different light.

Fascinating insight
Our guide Arminas was just brilliant - we met him on an extremely cold day (minus 20 degrees) and his beard was all frosty! He even brought extra clothing to share in case we got cold. He showed us all around some really interesting and 'off the beaten track' parts of Vilnius and gave a fascinating insight into its history. He kept the pace up so we didn't get frozen and we stopped at an ex-Soviet hotel for coffee. Arminus was charming, enthusiastic and it was a real delight to spend time with him. Thank you.

Insight into Lithuania
Leva was our guide and she really gave us a very interesting and detailed account of post-war life in Vilnius, combining personal anecdotes with huge historical events. She drew on the city's buildings, artworks and stories to provide us with a thought-provoking tour. It was very moving and uplifting to see how the people of Lithuanian have survived through their strength of character, stoicism, humour and religious beliefs.
Thank you very much for a wonderful experience.

We spend a weekend in Vilnius and booked the "Soviet Vilnius" private tour for 9 people. Our tour guide Martyna was absolutely fantastic! In 4 hours we covered everything from Communist remains over wooden hut district to Little Manhattan highrisers and back to Soviet era and Lithuanian independence. We learned about different eras in Lithuanian history, culture and even movies.
This tour was the highlight of my trip and I can only highly recommend it to anyone visiting Vilnius.

I am native VIlnius dweller, and I suggested the Ghost tour with Promo Day to my business partners from Germany. The walking tour took two hours in Vilnius Old Town, visiting places mentioned in local ancient myths and legends. The guide was inteligent, witty and very expressive. Many mysterious facts about my city were unknown even for me. And my guest were extremely excited about the tour, as they did not expect to gain knowladge in a such playful manner.

My friends and I booked the Soviet tour in Vilnius which was really interesting. We left the Old Town and explored the other side of the city which has lots of interesting stories too. Our guide Martina (sorry if it's wrong :) was the best. She was not only knowledgeable but interesting and fun to listen. I would definitely recommend everyone to join this tour. Just be sure to book it in advance.

history tour
It was a nice tour with a very cute and funny guide. if you want a private guide, walk around some city area and hear small stories where there is also room for asking questions this is perfect! I wish there was more scary stuff since they call iit ghost tour,but it's not. But as I said it was nice and we got to know new and small stories and information about Vilnius

Experience a Beautiful City in Good Company
I went on two tours with this company, 'Soviet Vilnius' and the 'Food Tour'. The guides were exceptional - well-informed, good-humoured and good company. Their tours are fairly priced and I would recommend the company to tourists who want more from their visit than looking out a bus window and want to connect with the place and the people.

Highlight of my trip Vilnius
A brilliant tour to learn about Lithuania’s Soviet history, and we saw some really interesting examples of Soviet-style architecture around the city too. Our guide Tadas was very friendly and knowledgeable, it was so interesting to hear his stories and ask questions about his childhood. Would definitely recommend this tour.
Vilnius Soviet-Themed Walking Tour
Amazing tour with Iieva B.
Ieva B. kept our family and friends (we had booked a private tour) spellbound with her combination of historical facts and personal anecdotes about life during the Soviet occupation. I wish all history lessons would be as fascinating as our walk through Vilnius!

I also gave Ieva B. five stars on Trip Advisor.
