When my guide learned I was interested in two specific regions, made I got to see them. He asked if there were books for the regions. We walked through old Kaunas and had a nice lunch, my treat. When he found out I needed a basketball shirt for a special friend, we detoured to a basketball shop at Akropolis.

The tourist guide was perfect, very polite , helpful and she wanted to tell us and show us as much as possible. My complain is that the office informed me by email, that ticket for Rumsiskes was not included in price, but didn' t informed me that Pazaislis Monastery is closed on Monday.

Martynas was a great guide and translated a lot of information for us at Rumsiskes. We really enjoyed the day! Incredible monastery visit as well! Thank you!

The trip was very interesting. The village museum, the monastery and the town of Kaunas are worth a visit.

Our guide Giedrius was great,the tour went perfect and we had a great time.
