Jewish Vilnius: Heaven and Hell
I joined the two hour walking tour dedicated to the history of the Jews in Vilnius. The tour became one of the high points on my 6th visit to Vilnius. I had never taken a guided walking tour before, and this tour gave me much more than I had expected, thanks to the very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide, Milda Jukniute.
I had been reading in advance about the time in history when Vilnius was known as the Jerusalem of East Europe. Milda gave us a very good introduction to this period, and how the Jewish community in town lived through the centuries up until the begining of the Second World War. On our wals she took us into small, hidden courtyards to show us how family life had been and the dwellings of famous religious persons and artists.

Then the tour took on a much more dark atmosphere, as we walked through the areas of the town where the small and the large gettho had been located during the war. Not much remains of the buildings now, but wherever it was something to see, she pointed it out for us. It would have been impossible to find these remains without a local guide. The tour ended with a very interesting visit to the only fuctioning synagogue in Vilnius.

I can really reccommend this walking tour, as it gave a very good insight in both the glorious and the dark side of the Jewish history in Vilnius. Our guide Milda was absolutely excellent, and for a Norwegian it came as an extra bonus that she spoke Norwegian fluently! (The guiding was done in English for the benefit of the other participants, and her English was also outstanding)

Jewish Vilnius Tour
Excellent ~~ An essential tour
My friend and myself went on the bespoke Jewish Tour , our guide was Milda. This began at the villnius town hall with a very clear orientation from Milda, then a walk around the old city that contained so much history. Deeply moving as I have family and my friend is from family who lived in Villnius. Milda was able to give us clear insight as well as deep sensitivity in the way she conducted the tour.
Thankyou !!!!
Jewish Vilnius Tour
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.
Evening Ghost Tour
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
Fun & Odd stories
We were 5 friends expending 3 days of holidays in Vilnius. We tried to make the most of every day there, and we didn't regret going to this tour!
We had lots of fun and discovered really interesting things about the people, buildings and history of Vilnius.

So our advice will be... Come on! You won't regret it!
Evening Ghost 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!

Vilnius Ghost & Legends Tour
T
Discover the frightening side of the city
It doesn't matter if it's your first time in the city or you've lived here all your life- this tour will surprise, shock or maybe... even entertain you.
Due to the extraordinary talent and the looks of the guide Ieva B., the stories are so well delivered that even if you were always skeptical about ghosts or the old legends- you will start to question your beliefs when you wonder around the dark alleys of this magnificent and mysterious city..
There is no doubt you will get goose bumps and might start to think this guide has a deal with both, the saints and the devil itself, with church bells ringing and street lights blinking on the most terrifying parts of the stories.
However, as she promised in the beginning of the tour- we all returned safe and sound, with the quick and witty answers to the most unexpected questions about the city and recommendations of great places to calm down after the tour.
Evening Ghost Tour
Informative and detailed - excellent value!
My wife and I joined two traveling companions for the Jewish Vilnius Tour, conducted by Milda. The tour took about 2-1/2 hours, winding through the streets of the former Jewish community as well as the areas where the WWII ghettoes were established, stopping at several monuments and building remnants. The pace was perfect for relatively active seniors. Our guide, Milda, was very well-informed on both past and current events regarding Jews in Vilnius, offering detailed history, useful context, and personal insights from her own experience and research. She eas personable, patient with our questions, curious about her guests, and spoke clearly, with a very good command of English. Thank you!
Jewish Vilnius 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.
Vilnius Soviet-Themed Walking Tour
Meaningful Tour
We enjoyed our tour very much. Our guide, was great, very informative and responsive to our needs. We were fortunate to have a tour of our own which allowed for lots of questions and interaction.

At the end of the tour we were able to visit the Jewish Cultural Center and do some genealogy, get pointers on websites, and the director offered her email if we needed further assistants.

Milda was so kind to send a link to some information we were discussing. We would recommend her to anyone who wants a through and thoughtful guide. She helped make our stay in Vilnius very meaningful.
Jewish Vilnius Tour

Even better than I had expected
The Jewish Vilnius tour was a sensitive, comprehensive introduction to the history of Lithuania's Jews. Our guide, while not Jewish, had a deep understanding of the importance of the Jewish community to the country's rich fabric of life. She was also current on events pertaining to the socio-political climate affecting Vilnuis' Jewish history. She enriched my visit to Vilnius; she introduced me to Ponar, the killing field a mere 10 minute train ride from the Vilnius train station. It was one of my most impactful, moving experiences in Lithuania.

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.
