Excellent evening out, thanks so much!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You are welcome!
Highly recommend taking the tour as the Castle doesn't have any organized tours - only signage to read. My guide knew stories behind the artifacts that you would never get on a bus tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Douglas, best wishes for a New Year!

Agnieska indicated she has had lots of tour experience and it shows - very informative walk thru Vilnius. very impressed with her presentation, her knowledge and thoroughness. thanks to her, we came away with a good understanding of the old city, the history....and of course, basketball which is the 'second' religion of Lithuanians ��
Agnieska was kind and competent guide. We had nice time with here in Trakai. We higly recommend her for tourguide and her english is very good.

we toured Trakai and Vilnius in one day (6-7 hours). Perfect. Vilnius has a lot of history but hard to discover on your own. Agnieska gave a wonderful tour and concentrated on the importance of every stop (definitely not a "this is so and so's picture and he lived from...) Couldn't have been happier with the tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Joseph!
Our visit of Kaunas with Agnieska was very interesting. Our conversations taught us a lot about Lithuania. Agnieska is an excellent guide.

A great tour! Agnieska tailored the tour to our needs and brought us to such interesting places along the way. She known in the area - which help us in some of the more crowded spots - like getting a great parking space. For lunch she suggested a local spot with regional specialties - we loved it. There is a lot to see and we never felt rushed by her....we highly recommend this tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you John!

Agnieska provided us with a guided tour of Vilnius old town. The tour was outstanding. In 3 hours Agnieska provided us with a comprehensive overview of the history, culture, traditions and tribulations of the Lithuanian people through the ages. Our particular interest was the Polish history in the Vilnius region; Agnieska provided this in an unbiased, unvarnished manner - both the good and the bad. An invaluable 3 hours that gave context to the remainder of our stay. Agnieska was a delight to meet.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you James. All the best to you!

We booked Agnieska for two days to tour Kaunas and Aukstaitija NP. Due to inclement weather on the 2nd day she effected a change to visit Trakai instead of Aukstaitija. This flexibility was very much welcomed and the tour to Trakai in fact was excellent - thoroughly recommend. Agnieska is a very friendly, knowledgeable and entertaining guide; she made both tours interesting and informative.
Ian CharmanUnited Kingdom
This was a thorough tour of the Vilnius Old Town. Agnieska is a very knowledgeable and interesting guide who provided a very worthwhile tour. The history of Lithuania (and Vilnius) was largely unknown to us at the start of the tour; Agnieska picked up on this and was entertaining and colourful in her descriptions of the city and events throughout. Thoroughly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Ian, it was a pleasure to show my country to you and your friends.

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: ToursByLocals is committed to 5-Star tour experiences and we appreciate any learning opportunity to improve the quality of the service we offer our customers. We take all feedback seriously and have, as always, attempted to clarify with our customer if there was anything our guide, or ToursByLocals, could have done differently to have made this tour a 5-Star experience.
Very polite. By the way, I am not kind of person who asks lots of questions and want to know all the detail of Vilnius in dept. We are the party of 3. I enjoy having her walk around and show the city. Basically she "did her job well", shows all the important and beautiful part of city, spend total 3 hrs. The pace of walking is good, I went there with 78 yo mother (kind of healthy) and brother. I thought the price is kind of expensive but I think it is worth the price.
Stephen SiegelOrange, CA, United States
Agnieska is a delightful, knowledgeable, engaging guide with a clear love for Vilnius and Lithuania. She touched on the country's history through the centuries, highlighted its influences from conquering countries, and provided a glimpse into its current economic status. We recommend Agnieska without reservation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Stephen, all the best for you!

Agnieska was a great guide! She was a wonderful addition to our project while we were in Vilnius, and she went way beyond what was asked of her. She knows her facts and is a fantastic people person. Highly recommended :-)
My tour was definitely overpriced. It would be fine if it cost 50 euro rather than 190. The wine degustation was nothing but a local cheese bought in a local cafe without any preparation. For that the one doesn't need a guide, you just hop into any cafe by yourself. Local brewery was promised, while not delivered. Also the elevator was out of function and we had to climb dangerous ladders. For the senior guest this might be very dangerous. We should have been warned in advance. Also very few stories.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm sorry your expectations were not met, but the tour was held due to the plan except the elevator, which was out of the order on that day because of the weather conditions. Considering wine and cheese degustation, as it was agreed before, the glass of wine and several kinds of cheese to try with local stories in famous parmesan cheese house. My tours are very informative and rich in stories.
Craig FinnUnited Kingdom
Agnieska is a star in her own right. We had specific non-tourist areas of Vilnius we wanted to visit rather than normal tours, which Agnieska easily catered for. We had a great time and we will look for her again when we re-visit.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Craig, greetings to all your nice family !
Adrian WhiteUnited States

Mary JohnsonUnited States
Agnieska was wonderful. We were apprehensive before our tour started, but she made us feel very comfortable. Agnieska was very knowledgeable about the history of the country. Most of all we appreciated her good English!!! She could communicate with us with very little problem.
Scott RossUnited States
We had a pleasant night out with Agnieska, spending most of the evening in a local pub, like a local. It was exactly what we wanted to do and the time passed quickly.
Agnieska is a very knowledgeable person and explain the past and present of Lithuania extremely well. I would certainly recommend her for Vilnius/Lithuania.
Jacek RzucidloUnited States
