The 2 hour tour of Vilnius with Carlos was an absolute blast. In addition to knowing the history and the most characteristic places of the city, Carlos offered us a much more realistic vision of the capital and the country itself, especially its society, its customs and its lifestyle. A different tour than the ones we are used to and very enjoyable. Carlos also adapted to our interests, resolved our doubts and offered us several interesting recommendations. We would repeat without hesitation.

Ugne contacted us in advance to clarify what priorities we had on the tour! And it fully fulfilled the wish to show us things that are not to be found in every travel guide. With her lively manner she managed to get us very familiar with her Vilnius during these hours! She also responded very well and competently to all our questions. We can highly recommend ugne (apart from the fact that your German was also excellent!)

friendly and cooperative guided tour through the new and old town

Very good German-speaking tour with a local and well-prepared tour guide. Responded well to requests and questions. A very successful and informative city tour.

A well thought out whole. Got a good picture of Vilnius Old Town and country life.

Very nice !! Ugne was a great guide who had a lot to tell.
