Description

They say that the shortest way to get to know a country and its people is the way to the local market. Prepare your tongue, nose and belly for a dance of the most enticing smells and flavors. Each season Hales turgus has its own face; each time it can offer you something special. But be sure that one thing never changes – everything you’ll find here is always made by locals and always made with love.

You’ll visit 4 or 5 different places. Begin in the Juice Bar, wich has been operating for nine years and is very popular among market visitors. Try a delicious fruit or vegetable cocktail and go straight to “Roots” where you’ll find the largest selection of Lithuanian handcrafted cheese in all country. Keep in mind, that all products are created according to authentic recipes and tastes cherished by Lithuanian farmers.

Then visit ”Kadagine“ – delicacies with the aroma of Lithuanian rustic smoke. This smoke will be one of the things you would like to bring home!

And for the last stop we invite you to Vilnius bagels. The bagel – a ring-shaped bread roll of unique flavor was invented and first baked by Jews living in the territory of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania.

Praise for Trakai Castle and Jewish History Group Tour
I thoroughly enjoyed this small group tour while in Lithuania. Excellent guide and fellow tourists...and the sites we saw were so compelling. Sometimes it's hard to book private tours on this website (guides are not that available/flexible I have found...book far in advance if you want one), so I was switched to this group tour and enjoyed it even more. Give this site a try!

Best walking tour!
If you are in Vilnius you definitely need to join their walking tour of the Old Town and Užupis.

Alina, our guide, showed us places that you'd only see with a local.

We were also told about past and present history of the country and the town, visited the top sightseeing places and I specially enjoyed the time spent in the Užupis district.

The tour takes around 2.5 - 3 hours so you really get to see a lot.

100% recommended!

The tour was really great! So many interesting stories and facts about Vilnius. We came away with a better understanding of Lithuanian people and culture. Couldn't have asked for a better guide.
