The Curonian Spit is worth visiting

It was nice, even if it almost didn't work out. We were at the agreed place at the agreed time and nobody came to pick us up. The announced guide had probably forgotten us or the tour at all. After contacting the organizer Baltic Tours by phone, we were picked up 20 minutes later by a nice, very good German-speaking guide named Arnoldis with a van and driver. There were already two couples in the van who came from the same ship as us, so of course it was no longer a private tour. But everyone was nice and so this tour was still the expected experience. Our guide was very knowledgeable and introduced us to the beauties of the area and Lithuanian history and the special history of Nida. We have seen all the special places. There was also a tour of Klaipeda with a stop at Theater Square. An overall nice tour despite the bumpy start!

Our guide, Milde, arrived punctually to pick us up for the tour and gave us an enlightening commentary about the Curonian Spit, its geography and its history. He also provided insights on the lifestyle of the locals peppered with his own experiences. Moreover, he showed us hidden gems e.g. a cafe set in the pine forest away from the maddening crowds of tourists.
