Great tour!
The group tour that I booked turned out to be a private tour with a dedicated guide who showed me special attractions in the old town and focussed on the independent republic of Uzupi with lots of good information, stories and useful advice about where to go and what to do in this special place. Thank you for giving me such an intense impression!

We did only the Uzupis part, Uzupis is an interesting and exciting republic in Vilnius with lots of creative people and artist workshops. It is rare to have a minister as a guide but we did! Ruta is a local and very knowledgeable not only about Uzupis but also art, architecture and history. She also seemed to know everybody in Uzupis. Highly recomended.

A great introduction to Vilnius
Sep 2019
We took the Vilnius Old Town walking tour with Anna Brish as our guide. It was a very good introduction to the city and its history. Anna provided a wealth of information about the history of the city speaking perfect English. Vilnius and Lithuania are fascinating places and this tour was a great introduction to the city and country. This tour encouraged us to return to Vilnius!

Couldn't imagine a trip to Vilnius without this tour!
Dec 2019
Ruta guided us around Vilnius Old Town and Uzupis; and kept us entertained and informed the entire journey! Not only did I learn about the history of the city / country, but I got a taste of present day life in Vilnius. Ruta really made my short trip to Vilnius special. Urban Adventures was great to work with too... due to poor planning on my behalf, I made a last-minute booking the morning of. They accommodated my requested and I'm so glad they did. Highly recommend!

Unforgettable Tour of Vilnius old town, Hill of Crosses & Trakai Castle
Nov 2019
First of all, it was our first visit to Vilnius and we were really excited and did not expect much. Thank you very much to Vilija for providing all the details that I needed to plan for this trip. Following her advice, we (Hubby & myself) start off our first day at Vilnius by walking tour at the old town, guiding by Jelena. She was outstanding, knowledgeable, friendly and explained the history and development of Vilnius brilliantly. She loves of her country was evident. She understands that I love visiting churches, therefore she took us to as many different churches as possible on that day. We couldn’t possibly understand so much if without her.

On the second morning, Jelena came picking us up punctually at 8am and head towards Hill of Crosses & Trakai Castle. Due to time constraint, thus I have to visit both places in a day.

Overall, we had fun and thank you very much Jelena for feeding us so much info of the places that we went. This was definitely an unforgettable experience. Thank you once again for your services and well wishes for your business.
