What people are saying about Vilnius County

I only booked this tour very last minute as my balloon ride was canceled and honestly wasn’t expecting much…I was wrong. The tour guide was extremely well informed and I learned a lot about Lithuanian history. The crosses in the partisan woods were interesting and the setting was stunning. While I am not a religious person, seeing the hill with 250 000 (!) crosses was still moving to me. I don’t think I‘d ever really understood people‘s desperation and hope in those days before independence. Highly recommended.

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.

It was a very nice tour with a dedicated and very nice guide! The Hill of Crosses is very impressive! Even if the journey from Vilnius is quite far, it was worth it!

very good experience, Andrei is an attentive guide, we had a very good day, very enriching, I recommend
