The tour was really nice and informative and the guide explained a lot in a humourous way. Because of the cold weather we had some hot chocolate halfway through which was great for warming up. Would definitely recommend if it is your first time visiting Vilnius and you want to know more about the city and Lithuanian culture!

Absolutely enjoyed this walking tour! Our guide Violet was very funny, told us a lot about Lithuanian history and brought us to lesser-known places. Thank you!
