Day 2 - Vilnius
Vilnius Walking Tour With Private Guide (3 Hours)
Our English-speaking guide will meet you in your hotel reception and take you for a 3 hour privately guided walking tour of Vilnius. This is a great way to get your bearings on your first day and see all the major sights of the city. 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. This 'stopping time' is part of your 3 hours so make the most of their company and local knowledge!
Day 3 - Vilnius
Free time or a day out of town
Today you can easily fill the day at leisure exploring the city and visiting museums, galleries and sights that interest you. Alternatively, we can take you out of town for a different experience of Lithuania. For example, participate in a crafts workshop, visit a Soviet theme park, or hike in a national park...
Day 4 - Vilnius to Kaunas
Vilnius To Kaunas (Via Rumsiskes & Trakai) Private Transfer
Our driver-guide will pick you up from your hotel and drive you to Kaunas. On the way you will visit Rumsiskes open-air ethnographic museum. Rumsiskes is a charming collection of traditional houses and farmsteads laid out in picturesque countryside. During peak season you can watch local artisans at work, and many artefacts are on display. You will also have a stop in Trakai and have a guided tour of Trakai castle.

A great holiday in Lithuania organised by Baltic Holidays
Just returned home from a great holiday in Lithuania organised by Baltic Holidays. From the moment we arrived, everything ran like clockwork. Excellent guiding, comfortable hotels and a good balance between organised outings and self guided walking. Lithuania is a fantastic destination and I would encourage people to visit - whatever your interests - history, art, music, trekking....; there will be something there for you.
