Description

Situated around 200 kilometres from Vilnius, the Hill of Crosses is one of the most mysterious places in Lithuania. For almost 200 years people have been bringing crosses here, asking for miracles.

Throughout history there have been several attempts to destroy the Hill, but it was always rebuilt larger. Those who destroyed it would become sick or even die!

On the way to the Hill of Crosses we’ll visit a park dedicated to Lithuanian partisans (forest brothers).

Our professional and guides will show you beautiful places that you wouldn’t think of visiting and share intriguing stories that you won’t find in any guidebooks.

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!
Great experience
Me and my sister did the ghost tour on Halloween and really enjoyed it. Despite the cold, Samuelis did a great job and kept the group entertained with a lot of humor and scary stories. We especially liked the fact that he involved the group members and even passersby. We would definitely recommend the tour as you can see a lot of historic sceneries of Vilnius as well.
A definite local perspective
Enjoyed the tour seeing aspects of Vilnius we would never had seen had we been walking around ourselves with a map.

Our guide had a wonderful personality and threw in just enough history without making it boring.
