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.

Great guide and experience!

Saw the entire island with a detailed commentary. Concluded the day with a tour of Klaipeda. Our guide was so knowledgeable and fun to explore with!
