Marius gave our group of three a tour of Vilnius Old Town. The tour was terrific. It was well paced and always interesting. His knowledge is vast and his command of English is excellent. We asked him all sorts of questions ranging from why a poet was so beloved to what supports the Lithuanian economy to what was that strange building we could see in the distance. He always had an answer and a story. We highly recommend Marius for any tours of Vilnius.
