My name is Lukas. I love my city Vilnius! I'll be happy to walk around with you and show you places, because I've been living here my whole life and I know every single street and courtyard of this city. Since 2018 I work in a local radio where I tell stories and interesting facts from our past. I have collected a lot of such stories and I want to share it with you. I'm looking forward to having you as my guests! I am working as English and Norwegian speaking guide in Lithuania. My guiding experience is almost 10 years and I can offer many different tours (not only traditional) in Vilnius, Kaunas, Trakai and other cities. Let me know what you are expecting and I will meet your expectations. We can mix city tour with visiting museums. I know good local restaurants, SPA centers, hotels and I can't recommend them for you. It is interesting to stop for traditional food tasting during the excursion. We can also do one or two days tour with bikes in the beautiful Lithuanian nature or to visit the Hill Of Crosses with about 100 000 crosses on the hill. I am a licensed guide in the Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania, KGB museum (Museum of Occupation and Freedom Fights, Gediminas castle, Trakai historical museum in Trakai castle. I can drive a car and usually use my vehicle. I have 16 years driving experience. Let me know if you are thinking to visit the Hill of Crosses, Kaunas, Pakruojis manor, Beekeeping museums in our national parks, the first capital of Lithuania- Kernave, Curonian spit, SPA town Druskininkai or another beautiful place of our country. Then I will make an offer for you according your expectations.
