During this private day tour you will be able to explore the most interesting sites in the surrounding areas of Vilnius. The tour will start from Paneriai memorial park, where thousands of Jews from Wilna were killed.  The Paneriai or Ponary massacre was the mass murder of up to 100,000 people by German SD, SS and Lithuanian Nazi collaborators, during World War II. The murders took place between July 1941 and August 1944 near the railway station of Ponary, now known as Paneriai, a suburb of what is today Vilnius, Lithuania. After the tour in the park, you will head to the second capital of Lithuania, where today you can see the most beautiful castle, on the island in the lake. Here, you have the possibility to enjoy lunch in traditional Karaim restaurant or take boat trip around the lake. After, the group will head to the temporal capital of Lithuania - Kaunas, which is second largest town in Lithuania today. You will also visit Pazaislis monastery. After this, you will head back to your accomodation in Vilnius.

Kayak Tour in Nemunas

This tour is a wonderful opportunity to escape from the routine and spend a couple of unforgettable hours kayaking in the father of Lithuanian rivers – Nemunas. People in Kaunas still can not imagine how the city looks like from the river. During this tour you will see how Kaunas hydroelectric power-station looks from below and admire the view of Panemunė pinewood. You will also take a look at Jiesia mound which is also called “the Hill of Napoleon” and you will be surprised by how beautiful the Kaunas Old town towers are. The views are the best at evening time, when it gets dark in the city.

What people are saying about Kaunas

A very good tour where you'll learn lots about the history.

Because of the flexible itinerary it was possible to adapt the sights to the number of expected traffic for festivities in Kaunas. Starting with sad history of the Nazi regime killing about 100000 people from Vilnius and just burying the remains in the Paneriai Forest. With the good weather we continued to Kaunas to see many of its churches, the little fortress walking around most of the time. When we finally got to Trakai Castle I learnt about the way of defending the different parts of the castle, how the islands were connected by bridges and what else to do in Trakai. I highly recommend this tour.

Excursion with family and friends

A very nice tour and the guide could even speak German! Very nice guide and very attentive. We also had an elderly lady with us on the tour and a lot of care was taken that she didn't have to walk much. Highly recommended!

Knowledgeable and calm guide

This is a private tour for up to 4 person. I was traveling alone so I got all the attention from the guide by myself. The guide was really knowledgeable and calm guide and I have a great day learning about Lithuania.
