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'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.

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.

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.

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 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.

Excellent tour led by Mindaugas! It made for the perfect shore excursion.

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.
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
