Our tour guide, Cyras, was very nice since the beginning of the tour. He explained everything we saw and took us to many different places. He took us to a place where there was a replica of the houses people used to live in. He explained the history of it very nicely and made sure we understood. He took photos of our family at each of the many different attractions he took us to. He also told us how and where to take good pictures. He took us to a boat tour around the Trakai palace. He made sure we enjoyed our tour.

When my guide learned I was interested in two specific regions, made I got to see them. He asked if there were books for the regions. We walked through old Kaunas and had a nice lunch, my treat. When he found out I needed a basketball shirt for a special friend, we detoured to a basketball shop at Akropolis.

Our guide, Giedrius Cyrus, was amazing. He provided many details throughout the day which made the trip more memorable. He was flexible with the tour and was very organized.

The trip was very interesting. The village museum, the monastery and the town of Kaunas are worth a visit.

Our guide Giedrius was great,the tour went perfect and we had a great time.
