From Vilnius: Trakai Tour with Audio Guide

1. From Vilnius: Trakai Tour with Audio Guide

Depart Vilnius, and then journey by air-conditioned minibus to the former capital of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania in the pretty lakeside town of Trakai. Listen to an informative audio commentary on the 28-kilometer (17-mile) journey, and then get 2.5 hours to explore the historic Old Town at leisure.  See the amazing Insular Castle and well-preserved ruins of Peninsula Castle, constructed in the 14th century before falling into disrepair in the 17th century. Rebuilt after World War II, Insular Castle is now considered a major landmark of Lithuania. Learn about the small ethnic Karaites people who settled in Trakai, along with the Tartars, Russians, Jews and Poles who followed. Enjoy panoramic views of Lake Galvė - the deepest of the region’s 200 lakes - before your return journey to Vilnius.

Vilnius: 3-Hour Jewish Heritage Tour

2. Vilnius: 3-Hour Jewish Heritage Tour

Explore Vilnius by air-conditioned minibus, with an English-speaking guide, and discover the history of the Jews in the city as you travel through the former ghettos along Žemaitijos Street, discover the Vilnius Choral Synagogue, and go to the Jewish cemetery. The story can be traced back to the 13th century. In folklore Litvaks (Lithuanian Jews) were known for their love of education, no-nonsense straight-talk, and sardonic wit. They first settled in Vilna, as the capital was and still is known in Jewish culture, from around the time of its founding in 1323. By the 18th century, Vilna had become the world capital of traditional religious (Talmudic) learning, and was often referred to as the Jerusalem of Lithuania. Towering over the many great Jewish figures the city has produced is the Talmudic leader, Gaon of Vilna. Some 94 percent of the Litvaks perished in the Holocaust, the highest percentage of genocide in Europe. Today, a small community of around 5,000 Litvaks make bold efforts to maintain their heritage.

After the tour in the park, you will head to the second capital of Lithuania, where today you can see the most beautiful castle, on the island in the lake.

Amazing trip, our guide Giedrius is super friendly and informative. We went in January when the day is shorter, but we managed to cover all the places before it gets dark without feeling that it's too rushed. He managed to keep the pace really well and also provide us with many information about the sights that we are visiting. Thank you so much Giedrius, would recommend this activity to everyone looking to explore Trakai and Kaunas in one day :)

We decided to go on this trip one day before so we booked online. We met as agreed and in a few minutes were on our way to Trakai together with other six tourists. The castle was amazing and the weather was reslly cold. We had lunch afterwards in the vicinity and returned back on time to start our trip back to Malta.

Pick up from the main square in a comfy mini bus. Only 3 of us on the tour and had an interesting commentary video played on the way there. Had 2 and a half hours free time to wander around the area and the castle which was enough time to take plenty of photos and get some delicious local traditional food.

A wonderful experience! The travel guide was so knowledgeable and informative. He learned what we were interested in an tailored the tour to us. I would highly recommend this tour!

Punctual service. Audio guide in Italian. The castle is beautiful, two hours is enough and more
