    Fun, entertaining, friendly, informative and perfect for large group.

    I went on this tour with my daughter, age 23, so the cost for 2 people was not very economical. During the course of the evening, we drank less than 2 pints each. However, the guide was especially knowledgeable and friendly. She was well prepared with historical information about the history of beer in general and in Lithuania in particular. We stopped at 2 micro breweries and one pub. The publican at 'Busi Trecias' was especially outgoing and descriptive about his family's business. Our last stop was at 'Jovaro Snekutis' and we enjoyed the dark beer but the light beer seemed to be 'off' and we did not drink it. 'Snekutis' did not interact with us, except to bring the beer. This was disappointing as we were expecting a very interesting and 'chatty character'. Suggest you include a local phone number on your website as I did not have any confidence that the website was legitimate until I called the office in Germany.
