Nemunas Tour
Ranked #6 of 28 Kaunas B&B and Inns
Reviewed 2 October 2009

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Nemunas Tour Guest House. Although this B&B is a bit removed from Kaunas, it is a short (15 min.) drive from the Centre. We arrived late one night, and were confused by the directions given by Google Maps. Hopelessly lost, I called our host Jurgis, and he directed me to a nearby landmark where he met us to lead us to the B&B. It is located in a lovely suburban neighborhood, just south of Kaunas. The B&B is a large, beautifully maintained and charming house with interesting gardens and an orchard. The room we had was quite large and spotless, and the B&B had a large common room where we saw another guest relaxing and watching TV. Our hostess, Danute, met us, and was very gracious, making every effort to make our stay there pleasant. Jurgis and Danute were very helpful in advising us on how to drive to find my relatives, and are very interesting to talk with. Both are retired university professors, and Danute's expertise in agricultural matters shows very well in her work in the gardens and gastronomical offerings of the B&B. She offered us fresh fruit from their orchard, and made fresh jams from those fruit trees. As long as you have your own transportation, you absolutely cannot go wrong staying there!

We stayed for the final three nights of our week long trip to Lithuania, as we were attending the European Athletics Championship event in Kaunas. We would echo the positive reviews of previous contributors - such a lovely place, very homely, friendly and bright hosts - plus excellent breakfasts and a home from home feeling to the house which made us feel very relaxed and welcome indeed. Although Nemunas Tour is some way out of the centre of Kaunas, that worked well for us - it was a short and straightforward drive into the centre, where parking was simple and inexpensive. It was nice to stay outside the city and be able to enjoy the lovely gardens around the property. Overall, if you are looking for accomodation which is not just the vanilla experience of staying in a standard hotel, but want a little more than that and would appreciate the feeling of staying in a family home as a welcome guest, then Nemunas Tour will appeal. We will definitely stay here again when returning to Lithuania.

What a delight - both the place and the bright, articulate hosts! After a rather lackluster hotel stay in Vilnius, it was a welcomed relief to find such a comfortable, roomy, clean accomodations. The breakfasts were the best of our stay in the Baltics - fresh with lots of variety (even the healthy wheatgrass!). My dear sweet husband forgot to pack some of his clothes from the guest closet but the gracious host, Jurgis, arranged to have them delivered to our hotel in Riga. Now that, my fellow travelers, is great customer service! We enjoyed it so much we extended our stay for a day just to relax. Would be my first choice in Lithuania if I ever return.

We flew Ryan Air from Frankfurt to Kaunas and enjoyed a wonderful stay at the Nemunas Tour B&B from 19-22 October 2007. We booked direct via their website: [--] and stayed in the larger corner room with a bathtub for 55 euros a night. The charming owner, Jurgis, met us at the airport and kindly provided us with maps and suggestions for our walking tour of Kaunas. The B&B consists of 6 rooms on the second floor of the family house. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Shampoo, conditioner and individually wrapped soaps are not offered so it is best to bring these with you. The rooms are also without television. A visit at the Nemunas Tour B&B is truly like staying with a family friend. Jurgis' wife, Danuta, has a PHD in Horticulture and she grows all her own organic fruits and vegetables, which are heartily served each morning. Her breakfasts are unbelievable! Each morning brought a new and welcomed surprise....banana Blinis, eggs with zucchini, home grown sunflower shoots, organic jams and jellies, etc. The B&B is located about 10-15 minutes from the city center by car, so it is not recommended for singles or those that want the convenience of staying near bars, restaurants, etc. A mini-bus/shuttle stops across the street from the B&B every half hour until about 8:00PM. The cost is approximately .50cents euro. I believe the last shuttle from Kaunas to the B&B is at 8:30PM. While there, Jurgis arranged the services of a private English speaking driver/guide for us at a cost of 550 Lt per day. Her name is Lina and she took us on a day tour to Vilnius with a stop at Trakai castle. Vilnius was interesting and we received a full tour of the former Jewish section of the city. We also peeked into the Shakespeare hotel….It looked very nice. The following day, we drove to the Hill of Crosses (a must see) and visited the Tytuvenai Monastery along the way. Naturally we enjoyed some very strong Lithuanian Beer and the national dishes of fried bread sticks with garlic (on the beer menus) and a plate of “Zepplins” - - - potatoe dumplings stuffed with meat and smothered in a cream-bacon sauce. We spent a lot of time in the car with this itinerary. If we had to do it again, we’d probably arrange to spend one or two nights in Kaunas (depending on when your flight arrives) and a night in Vilnius to prevent the back and forth. Side note on Kaunas: Friends of ours visited Lithuania the weekend before and had dinner at a beer restaurant called “Avilys”. Avilys is located on Vilniaus street in the old town and brews its own beer and cooks most of its dishes using the beer. We weren’t able to go, but our friends have not stopped raving about it.

I stayed here in 2006 and I don’t know exactly if things changed about it. When I was there I found it to be a very nice place. It is very cozy and you are treated very kindly by the owners, husband and wife. It is not like in a hotel of course, where the staff is coldly polite. Here, if you had a problem or wanted to ask some information, you just went and talked to these people and they listened to you carefully and you had the feeling they really cared you know.
As I remember, everything was ok with this guesthouse, everything clean and comfortable. Very important, the prices are very good, considering the quality of the service and of the accommodations. The food was absolutely delicious, I’m very careful with my meals and I have rarely found meals at a hotel to be better than average, but this time, I was really impressed. I also liked the sauna, very nice indeed.
The Nemunas wasn’t very close to anything “touristical”, but it was all the better, very quiet and calm. After some days, I felt like I was visiting my uncles’s small villa in the countryside, it was this familiar. There were some tours organized so you could see some castles and such, but I don’t remember well the details. In short, very beautiful place, delicious food and convenient prices. I hope everything stayed the same.

We had a fantastic time at Nemunas Guest House and we are definitely going to return. Linas went above and beyond the call of duty to contact our family members and arrange a meeting as well as many memorable side trips. He also translated so we could communicate with our relatives.

The guest house is located in a very quiet suburb of Kaunas. It's not within walking distance of any attractions or "nightlife" but we were so busy during the day that we were happy to simply relax at night and have a beer or a cup of tea.

We will never forget Jurga's delicious breakfasts and the ice cold beer when we got out of the sauna. The prices are extremely reasonable and the accomodations are very comfortable and clean. The owners of this property truly go out of their way to help you and make your experience memorable. I would highly recommend this property. We are returning in October of 2006 for another stay!

We have just returned from a five-night stay at the Nemunas Tour Guesthouse and we enjoyed every minute. Danute and Jurgis could not have done more to make us welcome they were very kind and hospitable hosts. The house is large and spacious with a very pretty garden that guests are encouraged to use. The children loved picking and eating the organic cherries and still managed to leave enough for Danute to make fresh cherry juice for breakfast. Danute is an excellent cook and her wild mushroom sauce and substantial breakfasts will be missed.

The Guesthouse is outside Kaunas in the village of Ringaudai but we found it really cheap (1.50 Lit) and easy to get in and out of Kaunas using the efficient 56 mini-bus service.

Jurgis arranged transfers from the airport and his son Linas arranged a series of tours for us to Traki Castle, Vilnius, Grutas Park and kayaking. It was great to have such a knowledgeable and friendly guide and Linas is good ambassador for Lithuania. The guesthouse has a website and it is easy to book accommodation and transfers.
