If you like to try the local food where the locals eat - we recommend you ask your guide to finish your tour at an authentic Lithuanian restaurant where the food is delicious and good value for money. If you don't fancy walking for 3 hours, you are very welcome to stop at one of the many cafes in the old town and chat with your guide about life in Lithuania, what to see etc and pick up some local tips.

First of all you will visit the Ninth Fort; a former prison camp and a chilling reminder of Lithuania's recent past. After we visit the stunning Pazaislis monastery which is the largest monastery complex in Lithuania, and the most magnificent example of Italian baroque architecture in the country.

Palanga is the summer capital of Lithuania. Palanga was established in the 19th century with a big English landscaped park, mansion with the amber museum inside and many decorative wooden villas set amidst the pine trees.

Lithuania & Latvia tailor-made private tour
We feel we have found a company that cares the client gets the trip they want, and then delivers on its promises, and we will definitely be considering Baltic Holidays for future tailor-made trips. You got us back travelling the way we prefer, without compromise, something we feared may have been a casualty of the last couple of years, so that is a very big thank you.
