Kaunas day trip - the unsung Hero

Kaunas is like a younger brother of Vilnius. Sometimes it seems to be in the shadows of the capital. But make no mistake - this is a superficial paradigm – Kaunas is a very vivid both in history and now: culture is thriving, and it’s always been the innovator vs Vilnius!

Amazing walking tour! Definitely must-do in Vilnius!
My friend and I went on this walking tour and it was truly enjoyable. Without it, we would have never learnt so much about Vilnius, nor notice all the little beauty and quirkiness of the city. Our walk through Užipis and Old Town was well planned.

Alina, our guide, was very detailed, enthusiastic and patient with us. She was also really knowledgeable and could answer all our questions. Unlike other walking tours I've been on, she was really interested in sharing the history and stories of Vilnius and it was just so nice.

Totally recommend if you are in the city! X
