  • This was my favorite activity during our trip to Lithuania. Our guide, Tomas, was very friendly and knowledgeable and the whole trip was brilliant. We were a small group and we got to kayak on four lakes and through a secret route to a beautiful pond of waterlilies. The bank where we stopped for our picnic lunch was stunning and we had it completely to ourselves for a swim in the sunshine! I  would 100% recommend this trip.

  • This was the highlight of our weekend to Vilnius. Tomas (our guide) was so lovely and friendly -- he was very knowledgeable about the sights we saw and spoke excellent English. He seemed like a very genuine guy, and really made the trip special for us. He picked us up promptly from our hotel and even brought a little red chequered tablecloth for our picnic! The traditional Lithuanian pastries we had for lunch were delicious -- particularly the apple pie! Tomas took lots of photos of us as well, and these were a lovely memento from the trip. Overall, we found it to be great value for money -superb scenery, a wonderful tour guide and all round great fun. Could not recommend highly enough!
