Highly recommended
We took the tour with Arminas on Sunday. We had only little knowledge about Lithuania and Vilnius and he gave us great information to get a good idea about the country/city. In 2 hours and 20 mins we visited the most important places in the city. He also gave recommendations regarding restaurants, museums etc. His English was spotless and the tour very organized. We would go again and do highly recommend the tour.

I signed up to be part of the guided tour of Jewish Vilnius but nobody else joined. The tour still went ahead and the in-depth knowledge of the tour guide was clear from the beginning. The attention to detail was excellent while covering a wide range of related topics.
I would strongly recommend it. Even if you do not have any interest in the subject before the tour, you will after.

Sarunas gave me a personalized tour as I was the only one who showed up that freezing morning to the Jewish Vilnius Tour. As a jewish and also a descendant of lithuanian jews myself, I thought I knew most of there was to know... well, by the opposite, Sarunas taught me more than I would have thought I had still to learn. He is really interested on the jewish heritage of Vilnius and Lithuania and he knows SO MUCH about it. At the end he asked me if I had any questions I'd like to do to him, and the reality was that I had actually more questions than ever before, because of all the new information he provided me. Amazing tour in an amazing city, with a more amazing guide. Thank you Sarunas!

Raminta was a fabulous, well informed guide
Oct. 2019
Raminta took us everywhere and explained in great detail the proud history of the Litvaks and the hideous fate that befell them during the Nazi occupation. Chilling erasure and still not exposed fully.

If you’re in Vilnius and have any interest in Jewish history/culture I highly recommend this tour. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and answered all of our questions willingly. Walking through the streets and the Synagogue were both interesting and provided insight into how influential Jewish culture was in Vilnius. This tour focused on a variety of factors, not solely WW2, which was refreshing and intriguing to learn about. Thank you!

Inspiring!

The Jewish Vilnius tour was the best thing to do in Vilnius. Borderlands and minority nations are always interesting for me, and the Jewish districts tend to be cozy. Lithuania has been such an important place for the Jewish culture and the Jews have had such a big role in Lithuania. Milda, our guide, has studied religion philosophy, and she was the perfect person to explain the differences of Litvaks, the Lithuanian Jews. She was not hiding any delicate theme, not repeating what we all know, but analyzing, giving reasons. I'm inspired!
