“Informative Tour Bus”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

I went with my brother and sister on the tour bus as we wanted to see parts of the City we usually wouldn't find on foot. We boarded the bus at the beginning of the tour opposite the Cathedral Square (you can also board the bus at the bus stop by the side of the Town Hall opposite the art gallery), bought the tickets on board the bus and took our seats (There are a few tourist leaflets and booklets at the airport, if you happen to pick one up, there is a voucher for 5 Litas off the 11am tour. Be careful if the sun is out because the open top bus allows all this glorious sunshine burn away at your skin, so make sure you wear sun cream and maybe a hat to protect your skin. It was easy to navigate between languages, however make sure your headphone work properly as only one of my headphones worked. The Driver will go around each passenger and ensure you have the correct language you need and make sure it is working properly before departing. The audio guide was informative, however they spoke very quickly so it was hard to take all the information in and remember details of certain areas or buildings. Overall it was a good cheap way of viewing the City (40 Litas each) There is another tour Company that offers an actual English Speaking tour guide which would probably be more beneficial if you have questions about certain areas or monuments/buildings.

“Great overview of city”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Sightseeing tour gives you a nice overview of the city. With any bus tour, it is hard to take photos when the vehicle is moving. Unfortunately the audio guide system was not working so my friend had to translate the entire tour for me. So I think the guide gave a lot more infothan my friend could translate. The tour is 40 lta for one of us and 75 lta for the other. A little pricey for the advertised time but our tour may have lasted a little longer bevause the bus apparently broke down though we did not really notice anything but we had to switch to a smaller vehicle which did not have enough seats. Fortunately the tour guide was able to adjust rather well and the chane was fairly seamless if you did not know better. The tour included two stops. One at Cathedral Square from where we walked past Vilnius University. Then boarded the smaller replacement shuttle and drove to St Anne's Church where we got off again at the church and then went to the Baltic Amber museum which was quite interesting. You can try the amber alcohol drink for free. We then boarded and got off near the Gatesof Dawn where the tour ended. We did get a refund for not having the English tour available which was really nice.

“Tour to Trakai”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

Me and my mother were in Vilnius on November,2011 in a tour to Trakai and our guide was Justina, wich are very good tour guide and gave us some good tips about our trip... Lituania is a small(compared to my country-Brazil) but a very nice place to visit and travel out. It's worth a trip to it, mostly in summer, and Trakai... you all must visit Trakai.

“Great tour to Trakai”
Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

We booked a tour to Trakai with this company and they picked us up from the bus station as we were arriving on the morning bus from Riga.

The guide, Viktoria was very knowledgeable, spoke excellent english and was really helpful and informative.

We had a really enjoyable time on Trakai and she suggested a good restaurant for us to try out both in Trakai and Vilnius. At the end of the tour we were dropped off at Town Hall to explore on our own. Overall a nice and satisfying experience.

“Inexpensive tour with a knowledgable guide”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

We were picked up at our hotel and driven 5 minutes to the Old Town Hall where the tour starts. Since we were the only customers, we ended up having in effect a private tour in a small bus with our charming and very knowledgable young guide, Viktoria, who spoke excellent English. A highlight of the tour was the St. Peter and St. Paul Church, which we probably wouldn't have gone into on our own - and which is a masterpiece of baroque statuary and decoration well worth seeing. In all, there are three stops, and the last part is a short walking tour around the Dawn Gate. This tour is recommended if you don't have much time and want to get a good overview of this extraordinarily beautiful and historical city.
