Greta was our guide assisted by her husband as our driver...it was like having two for one! A delightful tour through the county side to Palanga after a tour of Old Town Klaipeda. Pedestrian street Basanavicius, pier to Baltic Sea, Tiskevic palace and amber collection which was wonderful! Return to our ship through delightful villages of Kretinga, Salantai and Darbenai. Highly recommend this fine couple to you if you are interested in a memorable tour of Klaipeda, Lithuania!

Greta is very knowledgeable on the Klaipeda area. If looking for a english speaking guide with a great personality look no further. Thank you for a fabulous day! Sherryl, Lenny, Mitch and Sue

Greta is an outstanding tour guide. She let us maximize our touring of the Klaipeda and Curonian Spit. My wife is handicap & uses a wheelchair & Greta adapted the perfect tour to suit our needs doing way more than any of the ship tours. Seeing the beaches, countryside and one of the world’s most famous dunes plus their city was special. The driver, Mindaugas, added quality and humor to the tour and was most helpful with accessibility issues!

Greta's ad said we two guides for the price of one. This was soo true. She and her husband met us at our cruise ship and he drove while she guided but he was quite engaged too. We went to a festival (not planned - we saw it and they said lets go, We wandered all over and it was just like going around with a couple of friends.

Greta was exceptional. Warm, caring and simple. Made us see Klaipeda from a complete local's perspective. Her husband who was driving our minibus, was just as informative and helpful. We loved our Tour with them and would have no hesitation to recommend them to anyone. Great people, honest and knowlegable about the city and the country.

Regarding the Klaipeda tour. Greta was an excellent guide, her knowledge and her English both impeccable and her husband kindly assisted with my wheelchair. This was my first visit to Lithuania so I really am not able to compare or suggest what else we could have seen but we were happy with the tour programme and especially pleased to see the Tall Ships.
Timothy KayUnited States
My wife & I had a wonderful outing in the Klaipeda area with Greta. While Greta began by suggesting a visit to the Amber Museum, we had other interests. We had a nice drive through the countryside to the site of a former Soviet ICBM site, now a museum to the Cold War. Greta gave better explanations than the volunteer docent at the museum. Her husband drove us to the museum and then to lunch in a small village. Greta and her husband answered my many questions about life in Lithuania. Great conversatio

Greta & her husband guided us through Klaipeda & Palangos. Our cruise stop was shorter than originally scheduled & required real-time adjustment of the planned tour. Greta made adjustments & we had a great tour.
Our tour with Greta was very enjoyable. Her English was very good and she was extremely knowledgeable about Klaipeda. She was very interesting and made our tour memorable. We ended the tour off with some local beverages and cuisine at her recommendation. Both were excellent. I would strongly recommend having Greta as a guide.

Our day in Klaipeda/Curonian spit was amazing thanks to our guides Greta and Mindaugus! If you are looking for the best private excursion hosts--look no further! Knowledgeable, charming, easy to understand and eager to please --Greta and her husband Mindaugus will make your day in Lithuania special. Such a gorgeous area with forests and sandy beaches all in a few hours travel. We were 4 couples in port for a day. They were timely and professional. Their personal stories will warm your heart.
Sandra HaulterUnited States
Loved our guides - a great couple
Kathryn HoagUnited States
Greta is an excellent tour guide. You really get two guides as her husband drives and also knows a lot about Lithuania, so we had 2 guides. We went to the hill of witches. Greta knows all the fairy tales and history surrounding all the carvings. We learned so much about the history and the people of Lithuania. We definitely recommend them to everyone. I know that we want to come back here and take another tour with them.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. We were surprised in a good way, how enthusiastic your were, motivated and even had smiles when the rain was all over us. Thank you for the ratings and super good mood. Have a nice summer and we wish to put on the lifelist a lot of new things.
Alan ArnowitzUnited States

George BateStamford, CT, United States
If I could rate a tour six stars, this would be the tour and guides. This was the tour that only happens very rarely. Greta and her husband (driver) both speak excellent English and the day was like touring with best friends. We saw the port town of Klaipeda and toured the resort town of Lopango and enjoyed a lovely lunch there. I wish all tours were this pleasant and enjoyable. I hope we get a chance to visit Lithuania again and see Greta and her husband. Highest recommendation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear George Bate thank you for your super high and nice comments.We are very happy to have a nice day with nice people. Your are very welcome anytime in Lithuania. Greetings from Lithuania.

Sharon SmithUnited States
Absolutely wonderful tour of Klaipeda.. Greta and her husband were affable, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic about their city/country. The timing was perfect… they hit every site on our list, and we left with a better understanding of this part of the world and the EU. I would recommend their services to anyone seeking to learn about Lithuania and Klaipeda.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, thank you. Very nice womans compan. Once again thank your for good comments.
Janet MartinsUnited States
Greta and her husband were very fun, helpful and accommodating during our visit. They definitely were making sure our specific requests were met. I would not hesitate to refer their services again.
Clarene McCartneyUnited States
Greta and her husband were excellent! Our shore excursion was easy, fun and entertaining all at the same time. We took a leisurely walk thru the gardens and around the amber museum, stopped for coffee/beer and a plate of local cheeses. We had plenty of time to shop and we had a fabulous lunch at a restaurant called Cafe Momo. Excellent. Highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank your for very nice comments. We are very happy to see that your day with us was very pleasent.
We were fortunate in having Greta accompanied by her husband (who provided our transportation). In addition to providing a thoroughly professional and knowledgeable tour of Klaipeda and Palanga (Amber Museum) Greta provided us with insight into the daily lives of the residents of Lithuania. This personalized aspect of our tour was unique and greatly appreciated by all. At the end of the tour we all felt we had become part of her family. This is precisely what we hoped a "Tours by Locals" would be like.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We're so pleased your first experience with ToursByLocals was all you had hoped for. Hopefully you'll be back for many more different but equally engaging adventures with our guides.
Jennifer TobkinUnited States
Excellent tour led by Mindaugas! It made for the perfect shore excursion.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Greetings from Mindaugas, and thank you for good feedback.
Bruce PragerUnited States
Met up with Greta and her husband, Derrick, at the dock. They are both extremely friendly and both speak english. The van was comfortable and clean. We started out by driving out to Palanga, a popular beach resort. There we went to the mansion which has beautiful gardens and the Amber museum. We were surprised how green (forests) Lithuania is. Palanga is a large beach which is popular with locals. Our group of four had a typical Lithuania lunch and then we went to city center. Highly recommend Greta.
Sondra EttlingerUnited States
Greta was a spirited guide, especially in the Forest where we visited the many local sculptures. Her stories gave us a wonderful feeling for the local culture. At our request, she provided a very nice picnic lunch for us to share and a lovely venue overlooking the water. At the end of the city tour, some of our group wanted to shop although we had originally specified that we did not want to take group time for this. Greta tried to accommodate everyone's desires.
Greta, together with her charming husband (our driver,)were a delight both in terms of their knowledge and the care they took with us to cope with our walking limitations. We greatly enjoyed both the tour and their company. Would recommend them to other travellers without question.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bob, firstly thank you for these kind words. Secondly we are very happy that you with your wife enjoyed our short trip :) on a sunny day. Please for give us if something went wrong. Cheers from Lithuania, Sincerely Greta and Mindaugas
