Our guide was very good. He was interested in the things he told us so he presented them in an interesting and lively way, not only as if reading out of a book. We also liked his humane view-points. And he put in an extra effort to walk us to a restaurant that we asked about. He also answered our questions very dutifully.

Wonderful guide and really excellent tour - outstanding.

Despite the horrific nature of one of the sites we visited thus was a really great tour, the guide was extremely friendly, charming and knowledgeable. I recommend this tour to anyone interested in the Holocaust and/or Lithuanian history. Trakai is stunningly beautiful.

Andrus/Andreas was informed, articulate, nuanced in his observations and very good company. He paced the experience skillfully, and prepared us for the emotional impact of the information he shared. He made our time in Vilnius deeply meaningful.

Our guide Andres was very knowledgeable, friendly and polite. He explained in detail about the Lithuanian history. Paneriai Memorial is very impressive and Trakai Castle is amazing.

Great driver and he know a lot of things about the place
