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!

Description

Don’t waste time with very long historic talks of Dukes who almost became Kings. There will be some, but not too much. Overall this will be more like locals do – a daytrip to Trakai.

Užutrakis manor. Discover how noblemen of Lithuania used to live in XIX century by visiting this manor and the park designed by famous French landscape architect and botanist Édouard F. André.

The Old town of Trakai was shaped by Karaites – a local ethnic group from Crimean peninsula which has been living here since XIV c. - hear their story and try their local food “Kibinas” - oven baked pastries stuffed with meat or vegetables.

The Castle. It is one of the most picturesque castles of Europe that lies between a few lakes on a tiny island. Build in XIV c by the grand dukes of Lithuania the castle reminds of the greatest battles and history to this date.
Trakai Castle. It is the most famous castle in Lithuania. It is 14th century Gothic and lies on an island. Reach it by crossing a few bridges and get inside. Have a picnic on the island afterwards, or use the free time to further enjoy the views and take the snapshots of beautiful lakes – You will be able to rent a rowboat or just sit by the lake.

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!

Brilliant tour!
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.

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
