The tour with Ugnis was excellent. She showed up very punctually at the agreed meeting point and guided us very competently through the old town. She not only told something about the buildings and the history of Lithuania, but also told personal things. After a little over two hours we had traversed the old town and were rewarded with a great view of the city. The tips for restaurants and pubs were great. Finally, praise for a very excellent German.
