The tourist guide was perfect, very polite , helpful and she wanted to tell us and show us as much as possible. My complain is that the office informed me by email, that ticket for Rumsiskes was not included in price, but didn' t informed me that Pazaislis Monastery is closed on Monday.

Highly recommended

Wonderful way to get a glimpse of Kaunas and its surroundings in one day. Very good and dedicated guide. She made the tour very competent, worth knowing and entertaining.

Martynas was a great guide and translated a lot of information for us at Rumsiskes. We really enjoyed the day! Incredible monastery visit as well! Thank you!
