Steven LuscinskiUnited States
Diana was an unbelievable tour guide. She (& her driver) took us to the Hill of Crosses in addition to the other sites that we requested as well as the ones that she selected. It was an incredible 8+ hours for this bucket list trip for us. Diana was very knowledgeable, quite gracious and considerate of physical limitations. We highly recommend Diana as a tour guide.

This tour was amazing! Diana was very knowledgeable in sharing the history of her country with us. Her tour included a ride through the country to her village and a light meal at her home. We were also entertained by local singers dressed in their traditional outfits. Our day ended with some shopping in the old city. We would highly recommend this tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure to meet you in my local places. I am pleased that you have enjoyed the tour in the village of Kvietiniai. I hope that the way we have changed our meeting place because of the different ship docking terminal didn't bring too much inconveniences as you had to use shuttle bus from the terminal to the downtown. I am sure you have brought meaningful experiences from my native country - Lithuania.
Karen MatthewsUnited States
I just cannot say enough about this guide! We have taken over 20 tours by locals tours and Diana wanted to show us her country and was a host. We truly felt like guests. We started off with a tour guide and ended up with a friend.

We enjoyed our experiences in Klaipeda and Palanga thank to Diane ! She really made our visit there memorable and sweet. Without hesitation , I highly recommend Diane for you Klaipeda.

Diana was engaged from the minute I booked her: asking where we wanted to go, sights we wanted to see, providing suggestions. When the day arrived she was early and ready to take us on our heritage adventure. Diana had prepared in advance for our full day visiting 3 different towns where my great grandparents came from, where she arranged for a local to accompany us around to explain their history, show us areas of interest including the cemetery. It was a wonderful and interesting day for my dad and I.

Diana is a true gem. So easy to talk to, understood exactly what I was looking for in a tour, my group loved her, she gave us a tour that will live in our minds for a long time. She showed us Lithuania as we were hoping to see. Along with the history and sights, a visit to a home, with fantastic couple who made us all so welcome. the highlight of our trip. We hope one day to meet Diana again. She is truly a lovely person and a fantastic guide. I cannot say too many good things about her.

Debbie LundCALIFORNIA, United States
Diana is a wonderful guide! So very knowledgeable of her country and customized our tour to exactly what we wanted to do. I can't say enough about the Hill of Crosses, such a moving experience. It's a must see if you travel to Lithuania! I highly recommend Diana, you won't be disappointed.
Kimberly Martin-NahoomUnited States
We really enjoyed our tour with Diana. She was very pleasant and provided a lot of information on the tour. The Hill of Crosses was a long day trip for a shore excursion but in my opinion it was well worth the effort.
Dean N.United States
Great private tour of the Klaipeda area. Diana is personable and has a very good grasp of the history of the region.
Jerry WilsonUnited States
Dianna did an outstanding job with the tour. It far surpassed anything the ship offered. It was filled with surprises that she added. I strongly encourage others to book her tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It is always my pleasure to present localities about Lithuania's history and traditions. Thank you for visiting my country.
Jennings Hurt IIIUnited States
Diane was our guide in Klaipeda, Lithuania. She was very knowledgeable, very friendly and very informative. Candidly, Klaipeda does not have much to see but that is not the fault of Diana. She took us to several interesting places outside of the city. The most special treat were incredible homegrown tomatoes and cucumbers from her own garden served at her house. The different types of local beers were delicious as well.

Showed us more than sights. Took us to her home, fed us lunch and showed us pictures of her family members ship to Russian Gulag in Siberia
Sheryl ManningUnited States
Diana is professional, knowledgeable and lovely to be with. She took my husband and I through Klaipeda on a walking tour, and then she and a a driver took us to Palanga, where we walked the resort and had a memorable picnic in the gardens of Palanga. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day and we highly recommend her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I was so glad to present the sights in my country in order to bring the most memorable experiences about local life along the Lithuanian coast. Thank you for visiting my country.
Julie BrittUnited States
ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!!!! We give Diana TEN stars! We took 6 different private tours and this was the best tour!, we got to experience Lithuania up close and personal. Amazing parks,the scenery was beautiful. We got to go see an 200 year old house and the grounds and to meet the 95 year old great grandmother, who was out in her garden! One of the highlights was Diana took us to her lovely home,served us local drinks,and local cheeses and veggies and berry jam!and to pick wild strawberries,unbelievable fun
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so glad that you have enjoyed the tour in the west part of Lithuania. It was my pleasure to meet you. Wishes for all the best for your company. your guide Diana
Beverly CallisterUnited States
When going to Lithuania, you should book a tour with Diana ! This lovely lady took us to places off the beaten path, not often seen by tourists. We went to a spectacular resort, Palangos, where there is a vast park, castle, and walking and biking paths that go to the sea. She also took us to a farm and private residence in a small village, where we sampled local cuisine and beer and experienced Lithuania from a "locals" point of view. It was one of the highlights of our cruise to the Baltics!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It is great I can support my travelers with specific spots in my region. It is always my pleasure to show something original and local related to the West part of Lithuania. Thank you for choosing my tours and I am very glad that you liked it. Best wishes for Beverly Callister party!

Victoria KasztejnaUnited States
Everyone in our group thought this was the most wonderful tour of our trip. Diana was very knowledgeable, very accommodating to our group, very personable, very pleasant. This tour was more than our expectations! What more can I say? There were 8 people in our group and everyone felt the same about this tour. If I can back to Lithuania, I would surely request Diana for my tour leader.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure to assist your company in Lithuania and present the main my country's specialities. I am pleased that you reached your expectations about Lithuania and countryside lifestyle.Wish you had nice and meaningful future trips.
Jill BauerFernandina Beach, FL, United States
Diana filled our day with history, culture and many interesting details of Lithuania. We had a wonderful day driving through the park, viewing the forest and walking around the old fishing village. The resort town was truly peaceful and relaxing -- a nice break from the city tours. We especially enjoyed hearing the old tales about princesses and witches. The beer and warm freshly smoked fish made for an exceptional lunch! Only to Jonas for smoked fish!
Anne KolberUnited States
Our group truly enjoyed Diana's company. She was very easy to talk to, and she shared interesting stories. She speaks English very well. She led a fun and interesting tour. She gave us the opportunity to meet some of the local people which was really special. I would highly recommend her as a guide. Diana was our guide and driver, and we spent about 41/2 hours with her. It was a lovely day.
Cindy W.Aurora, COLORADO, United States
Diana was very attentive to what we wanted to see and do. She was friendly and knowledgeable about what the area. She was also flexible with the unique sights and lengths of time we wanted to spend at each location. Thanks Again!!!!!! :D
Howard RosenUnited States
While Diana was knowledgeable and helpful, and we enjoyed her tour, there were two negatives: We thought we had a private tour, but the two of us were grouped with 3 other people without our advance knowledge. And, she is a VERY slow driver. That added substantially to the driving time, and got us back to our cruise ship somewhat later than we had anticipated.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure to assist you during your stay on Lithuanian coast. It's a great pity about these negatives from my side including and slow driving which is preferable from the side of travelers because of being safe. In the future I will accept these things and discuss it with the travelers in advance.I always try to do my best in order to show the most interesting sights in the region. In this case I apologize for the discomfort which was brought from my side related to the mentioned things.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We are sorry to hear about this. The guide manager talked with Diana about this issue in order to make sure it does not happen again as all our tours are private. A partial refund was given to the traveler.
Richard HertzSanta Fe, NM, United States
Diana was wonderful in every respect. Both her english and her knowledge of the area were excellent. When she found out my grandparents were born in Lithuania not far from Klaipeda she revised our tour on the spot to take us to the town, Plunge, and then to two homes of residents of the area for memorable visits, including one wit a couple who had spent 10 years in Siberia courtesy of Stalin. Definitely the most memorable day of our trip.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a nice way to meet Richard Hertz's party and to organize the tour in Lithuania following the routes and background of the family.Visiting smaller locations and meeting local people is the best way to get to know about the country's life, traditions and culture.
Theresa A SheffieldUnited States
Diana showed us the Split, which is stunning!! Her tour is different from any we took on our Baltic Cruise. I would highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a nice way for me to present the most unique spots in the West part of Lithuania including wooden carvings on the hill of witches, cormorants' colony. As well as exploring the sandy dunes, trying local cuisine dishes and Baltic Amber presentation make this particular tour an exceptional one. It was a great pleasure for me to meet Theresa's party and to explore all these sights on Lithuanian coast with them. Looking forward to meeting guests on the tours in Lithuania.
