This tour was from a professional guide (Ugnė) who provided a great experience. She had a plan, carefully answered questions, and was generous with her insight and perspectives, including sharing experiences of her family across recent Lithuanian history. She provided a balanced viewpoint whilst also showing a sense of pride and love for Lithuania. The tour was just what I was looking for and just the right length.

A great way of exploring Vilnius and finding the hidden gems (even for the local people). Our guide Ugne was full of knowledge about the city and its history. We had an amazing time!
