Please find here what people from different countries of the world think about Lithuania and Lithuanian Tours. Enjoy reading and think about coming to Lithuania.
My wife and I were part of the Balzekas Museum tour group that visited Lithuania last month and Egle Mickeviciene was our tour guide. We just wanted to let you know that we thought Egle did an outstanding job. She was very knowledgeable about everything that we saw and did an excellent job of explaining in terms we could understand. It was especially useful that when appropriate she was able to bring in her own experiences as someone who has lived in Lithuania through many changes. She also did an excellent job of ensuring that all arrangements were taken care of as some of us made special side trips to visit locations where our ancestors had lived. I have no hesitation in recommending her highly and would be extremely happy to have her as our tour guide again in the future.
I also wanted to say that your company did an excellent job in arranging this tour. We saw a very good selection of the sights in Lithuania, the hotels we stayed in were very good ones and we ate at a wonderful variety of very interesting restaurants. I don't believe we could have had a better experience. Everything was wonderful.
The trip was terrific! All accommodations were excellent! Transport from airport to Vilnius hotel was on time and found us easily. Hotel was great and centrally located. Our first guide was so knowledgeable and her English was great! Maria was so good, we paid her extra for a longer tour! Riga was fantastic! The hotel room was as big as an apartment! It had a kitchen, dining area with furniture, utensils, dishes, etc. In addition it had a couch, two end chairs, coffee table with all the furnishings and the beds we're so comfortable! The bathroom was huge and located away from the beds so that we did not disturb the other when in use. Great black, white and red decor. Wonderful hotel and super guide again. Caspars knew everything about everything! He was friendly and very personable, as well. He has eight kids! So handling two clients was very easy for him! Loved Riga and the art nouveau. Again location of hotel was close to everything. And the hotel graciously made dinner accommodations for us even without reservations and they were booked. Great! Talin was another beautiful hotel, one where the Queen of England and Prince Charles had also stayed. One very tiny inconvenience was no elevator. And we were on floor two. But everything else was great! Forgot to mention the excellent breakfasts at each hotel were delicious and very satisfying. Often we skipped lunch having had such great and filling breakfasts. In Tallin
another very knowledgeable guide, Rita. Again great English and most accommodating to our needs. They were all so nice and client focused. Made me feel special and the center of their attention. From Tallin, the one guy who was not as high in quality as the others was the guy who drove us to the ferry. He wasn't the most helpful with the luggage (made the hotel Porter do all the work) and would not drive us closer to the entrance as we saw other passengers being dropped off closer. We asked but he said no. He was the only one we did not over tip! We loved everyone else. The Comfort Class on the ferry was another delightful surprise. Food, drinks and a very nice, private area away from the maddening crowds. Ride was wonderful. Met by Artem and Andrew. Artem thoroughly explained everything, wrote down names of our guides with his cell number and cell numbers for all involved. Never needed to call for any reason. Another person who made me feel special and he could not do enough! Terrific hotel, large and centrally located. Easy access to promenade, shopping and restaurants. Tommy the guide for the city tour, again most knowledgeable and interesting. The library in Helsinki is amazing! The last guide was Cordelia or Cornelia, sorry forgot! But she took us to Porvoo. Another great guide with most interesting information. Background of knowledge for all guides was unbeatable. Courteous, helpful and all so terrific! My guy, Andrew was early for pick up, 5:25 am I like that because I was ready and waiting. He took me to the airport, carried my baggage, helped to check in and get luggage tags (you know how un techno I am!) He made sure I was going the right way and accompanied me to the very end! I cannot think of one thing I would change! Everything went so smoothly for the entire trip! Everyone was outstanding, wonderful and great! Thank you for making all the arrangements. I don't think you could have done better. Sorry I ranted and raved for so long, TMI! But I loved the trip and have recommended you highly and without reservation to all who will listen! I was picking up mail at the post office and told the lady waiting in line behind me! She wants to go to Tallin. Will fill out your evaluation when I get it, if I can! I'll let you know what happens! PS. The driver for the long drive, I think to Tallin was another great guy. Friendly, personable and he made sure we were comfortable and happy. I was so happy throughout the trip. Great job! You know what we like! Thanks!
From US group:
By the way, we loved our overnight at Mezotne Palace Hotel near Rundale. What a special place it is - beautiful grounds, grand public rooms that are used for special occasions like weddings and spacious bedrooms furnished in an old-fashioned style that fits in with the palace. The breakfast they made for us the morning we left was enough to feed six people. We wished we had a few more nights there just to "knock off" from touring and relax. Rundale Palace, of course, was stunning, especially the gardens.
It's been a wonderful trip but Vilnius is the best of all.
I just wanted to let you know that I heard back from the agent for the Elliotts, and they had a great time in the Baltics.
They really liked the guides and drivers in the areal Especially in Estonia and Lithuania.
Thank you so much for your assistance with this trip!
I just wanted to send you an email to thank you for the amazing job you did setting up our trip. We had ZERO hiccups. All of our guides were friendly, knowledgable and really easy going. The drivers were all on time and very professional. We could not have imagined a better trip than this. You suggestions for hotels and logistics were spot on.
I cannot thank you enough from my entire family for truly a perfect vacation.
Labas Rita. All six of our family group really enjoyed the trip. We thought Maria was a top notch guide. She covered everything in detail and also told some very interesting stories about life in Lithuania under the Russians. The visits to each location were well organized and very informational. The historic and cultural visits were terrific.
Being there for the 100th anniversary of Lithuanian’s independence was more spectacular that I had guessed. Seeing so many citizens wearing historical clothing and attending the massive dancing and singing performances was great. My only minor criticism was that most of the meals were heavy breaded pork steaks or the like. Would have preferred fresher, newer cuisine. Rich and Ann
With the upcoming 100th anniversary celebration of Lithuania's restored independence, it seemed mandatory for many of the people with Lithuanian roots to go to the heart of it all - Lithuania. Having traveled to Lithuania with a core group of friends in 2014, we signed on with Vytis Tours, which collaborates with Lithuanian Tours in Lithuania to provide a unique experience of sites, culture, and cuisine. We had such a wonderful time four years ago, that many of us, this time accompanied by additional family and friends, committed to returning to the land of our parents and the generations before them.
We requested that Vytis Tours and Lithuanian Tours provide an atypical experience of the beautiful country of Lithuania, as we had visited many of the popular tourist sites in 2014. They came up with an incredible itinerary in which we "off-roaded" to little villages, towns, and national parks. We visited reconstructed manors, an abandoned nuclear missile site, sculpture parks, unlike any we have yet experienced, a monastery, incredibly beautiful and ornate churches, and so many more places of interest.
We rode in a large luxury bus, complete with Wi-Fi, charging stations for phones, and a professional driver who maneuvered the bus through the narrowest of roads and parking spaces.
We stayed at hotels that were in the heart of each city and enjoyed all you can eat sumptuous buffet breakfasts. The restaurants that were chosen for our lunches were all very diverse, providing an opportunity to sample foods from different parts of the country. Needless to say, we all came home a bit heavier than when we left.
Our guide Eimute was a retired school teacher who astounded us with her knowledge, her memory, and her command of the English language. As many of us were bilingual, we were very aware of how well she alternated from one language to the other. She was punctual, flexible, humble, friendly, and accepting of our sporadic "rowdiness".
The tour group provided us with some of the best tickets in the house for all three special events, marking the 100th celebration. God provided the good weather, and it was impossible not to feel incredibly moved during, and at the conclusion of each event.
The entire process from start to finish was smooth, thanks to the efforts of Rita Pencyla at Vytis Tours, Egle Jakubenaite at Lithuanian Tours, and our guide Eimute Kuokstiene. We can't say enough good things about the entire experience and how much we enjoyed our time in Lithuania. We felt that the tour was worth even more than what we paid for it.
I just wanted to pass along some nice feedback to you:
Thank you for checking on us - we’re having a lovely time. The drivers and guides have been great, the accommodations are very nice, and the sunny weather has been a bonus.
The group was very pleased with the hotel Artis, transfers and restaurants Lokys and Kitchen!
Wish you a nice evening too!
Hello Jason: Just a little note on the Baltic States Trip. Kay and I got home yesterday after just a wonderful, informative, and excellently organized trip. We were especially pleased with the guides, drivers, events and services. We were always most comfortable. The ferry trip to Stockholm was excellent, we travelled on to Copenhagen for 4 days exploring on our own. However the Baltic States portion was most interesting and informative. I note an evaluation form for Kensington and shall fill out in near future.
Thanks for your help.
Lowell and Kay
These clients called today, and they spoke extremely highly of their program in the Baltics, particularly of the high quality of their guides. Thank you for making their trip so wonderful and memorable, they particularly liked Olga in Kaliningrad and Iga in Vilnius.
sei sempre più veloce di Speedy Gonzales J !!!
Just FYI - had very good feedback from these clients about their tour and especially about their guide. They really loved her and wanted me to pass along how much they enjoyed their tour and her assistance.
Thank you for taking such good care of our travelers!
Have a nice weekend,
Dear Egle Marija,
I finished speaking with the Batesons regarding their trip to the Baltics. They had a lovely time. They mentioned that they thought all of the guides were wonderful and knowledgeable, they said they learned so much about these three countries that they had no clue about. So I wanted to let you know that they really appreciated your services.
Thank you Egle Marija.
Mi ha scritto adesso la sig.ra Piccardo Teresa che ha partecipato al tour del 30 luglio. Complimenti per tutto soprattutto alla Guida e ottima puntualità nei trasferimenti!
Bravi e grazie di tutto
Come stai ? spero tutto bene. Mi scuso se non ti ho scritto prima in merito al gruppo CORZANO. Ti informo che il gruppo è rientrato pienamente soddisfatto di tutti i servizi offerti. Una nota particolare per te..... 'PAWEL E' STATO FANTASTICO'!!!!!
Grazie Pawel per l'ottima riuscita del viaggio.
Spero tu stia bene! Siamo sul traghetto diretto a Helsinki. Abbiamo lasciato Tallinn e i Baltici con grande dispiacere perché ci sono piaciuti tantissimo! Volevamo ringraziarti perché i servizi sono stati ottimi! Tutti gli Hotel in posizione comoda per il centro e per muoversi a piedi. Auto spaziosa e confortevole. Guide bravissime. Ringraziamo Ullastina, Antra e Marina. Ma soprattutto ringraziamo te per averci organizzato cosi bene il viaggio.
Fammi sapere quando sarai a Milano per incontrarci! Faremo pubblicità con amici e colleghi sperando di passarti qualche altra prenotazione!
Un caro saluto
Ilaria, Mauro, Salvatore e Maria
Dear Viktorija and Egle,
Just wanted to let you know that our clients had a wonderful visit and loved their guides. Thank you for all the care you took in planning and executing the itinerary and accommodating their long list of museums. And please, let all the guides and the drivers know how much we appreciate their efforts.
Have a good summer!
Thank you Rita for the excellent service.
Mike and I enjoyed an amazing tour with the highest quality people. I truly appreciated how thoughtful and careful the tour guides and drivers were. Everyone was 100% reliable and very nice.
Thank you especially for the flexibility. I know so little about Latvia and Lithuania before I went there that I couldn't say specifically what we needed to see. As we traveled it became clearer what the priorities were. The guides were so helpful in showing us things and explaining The complicated history.
The hotels were excellent. Thank you especially for the Palanga portion which was a great and happy surprise for us. It was relaxing and beautiful and we saw things we have never seen. Every day of the tour was a real joy.
I tried to write a top review on trip advisor but I couldn't find your company. I would be delighted to do so. My husband and I learned so much the few days we spent there. All three guides and the three drivers were very open about the country's history and the situation today. Thank you again.
Here we are !
Our trip through Belarus and Countries of the Baltics , has been a success .

Grazie per la tua preziosa collaborazione, cari saluti e buon lavoro
Hello...I heard from Elayne Kollins and the group had a wonderful time on your tour. They thought it was excellent and were so happy to have Iga as their guide again.
Juste un petit mot pour vous dire que nous sommes bien rentrées et très heureuses de notre séjour. Celà nous a rassurées de pouvoir vous rencontrer et nous accompagner au bureau de change. Quelques petits ennuis de santé m'ont empêchée de vous contacter avant. J'espère que Sandrine l'a fait car nous n'avons pas eu encore le temps de nous téléphoner.
La saison touristique doit commencer dans les pays Baltes et le travail ne doit pas manquer pour vous.
Donc je vous laisse travailler et j'envoie un petit mot de remerciement à la personne qui avait recherché les coordonnées de Jadwiga Trybocka.
Bonne continuation et merci encore.
Look forward to working with you again in the near future. On a personal I have been very impressed by your services and your company.
Jurgita, I am very pleased to confirm that all arrangements for which I purchased and for which you supplied for my recent time in Latvia and Lithuania were handled very professionally by the drivers and guides! I enjoyed my time in Latvia and Lithuania! Thanks ever so much for your assistance! I’ll write more later!
Siamo tornati a Cagliari. Il nostro viaggio e' stato per tutti un piacere...anche per merito tuo!.. Dovesse capitarti di venire in Sardegna saremo lieti di accoglierti!.. Grazie ancora

Hi Jurga! We are here enjoying Lithuania! Having a wonderful time! ...the tour guide and bus driver have been excellent!!! Thank you again!
Sent from my iPad
Jurgita - hi, how are you?
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for arranging both the day trip and the transport to and from the airport - everything went brilliantly and it made it so much easier for us.
Emilia, our guide, was wonderful - please thank you yet again - she was so much fun and had impeccable English. And the trip to the village and the meal was extremely good too - so thank you to you for suggesting it. To be recommended, loved it.
Loved the whole few days in Lithuania - Vilnius is such a beautiful city, you're very lucky to live there.
A HUGE thank you once again for arranging everything - I know it's your job, but I am grateful! And it was lovely!!
Signora Renata buongiorno, sono rientrato ieri in ufficio ed approfitto della pausa pranzo per scriverle. Voglio complimentarmi con lei e con la Lithuanian Tours per la professionalità e la cortesiache io e ia moglie abbiamo riscontrato nella guida Jurgida, nell'autista del pullmane negli alberghi. Siamo stati bene per tutto il tour e sicuramente vi raccomanderò ai mieiamici ed a chiunque dovesse chiedermi notizie sulle mie vacanze nei paesi baltici. cordialmente enrico
We just finished our 2 days with Iga. Everything was beyond perfect. We hated to say goodbye to her. Her work is wonderful and we were appreciative of every minute we spent together. We love the hotel as well. Thank you for helping us to plan a perfect few days.
All of our best,
Diane and Steve Krentzman

I just wanted to thank you for all of the help with the Judith Johnson trip. She just called me and raved about it. She loved all of the guides, and said that everything was great! Even her husband, who did not want to go, had a fantastic time and now loves the Baltics.
Thank you for all of your help with this. I know that it was a last minute scramble!
She really liked the excursions in Kaliningrad--thank you for helping me with that. It was one of the top highlights!
Once again thank you.
9 October, 2012
I just talked to both group leaders: they were very satisfied with their tours! Group I liked the technical visits which were very professional. And group II really liked the guide. So thank you and your team for your organization!
Mrs Arquint who has lost her passport was very satisfied that she got a new passport so fast.
So thank you for everything.

Thank you for your efficient services as well.

Sveika, Jurga! I hope you are well, and that life is treating well also.
It has taken us a week to recover from the best vacation anyone could hope to have in their lifetime. You did a superb job putting together our trip. It went far beyond all our expectations. Everything went exceptionally smoothly, from airport transfers to hotel check-ins to admissions to the attractions. All of our guides were excellent, especially Ada in St. Petersburg. She somehow managed to get us in to places without having to stand in line even once. There may have been 200 people in a line, but she got us past them and inside quickly. She also had an encyclopaedic knowledge of everything in every palace, or church or museum. An amazing asset.
We sure saw some interesting places. Your choices were absolutely perfect. I gather from our guides that your average tourist does not visit some of these places; but then again, we’re not your average tourists. We like to explore the road less travelled, and see the real country and meet the real people, and don’t mind a bit of exercise. (Actually, a lot of exercise. There sure are a lot of stairs in the Baltics :)
You might be interested to know that all of our guides said that Lithuanian Tours was the best company to work for. I think it’s the best company to book a tour with. As far as we’re concerned, you are Number 1!
I think the best part of the whole trip was having Valdas as our driver. We were so happy to see him again. He is the best driver we’ve ever had. He is safe, he is extremely courteous, and he is very funny. We really enjoyed his company. His English is really good now. He must have been working very hard on it. We have adopted him, and he is now part of our family. :)
We all agree that of all the places we visited on the tour, Lithuania was by far the best. When we arrived in Vilnius, we felt like we were home. It’s a very comfortable place, and we will be back as soon as possible, that is, if you’ll have us :).
Thank you again for all your hard work. It is much appreciated.
p.s. We’re thinking Skamba Skamba Kankliai should be an annual tradition

We had a wonderfull jorney an weather was mostly fine. We saw many things had a realy good hotel with super service and also the shiptripp was calm and the buffet very good.

We were very happy with the service we received yesterday, taking us from Vilnius to Vitebsk. The driver was very polite and helpful, especially at the border crossing and his driving was excellent, even in very difficuly conditions (there was a severe storm at about 3pm).
Thankyou very much for arranging this "emergency" transport for us,
Clare Haig and Philip Watters

Thank you for help with sight seeing in Vilnius. We enjoyed it very much, and it is interesting that repeated guided tours don’t get dull, but are always a little different, and you get new insights and information every time. Now I have three more friends that are fond of Lithuania! J

Dear Ms. Jakubenaite,
This is Father John e-mailing you from California. I have just returned from a most wonderful trip that ranks among my most memorable and meaningful travel experiences. I have you to thank for this and I want to let you know how much I appreciate everything you did for me. My three day trips were all great. I was able to do and see everything I had hoped and much much more. Kestas was an EXCELLENT guide and made each experience even more meaningful. I just can't thank you enough. I also want you to know how impressed I am with your beautiful country. Lithuania is truly amazing and I am so glad I had a chance to experience so much of the country. Thank you again for everything!
May God bless you always.
Most Sincerely, Father John Neiman.
P.S. I also want to let you know that my experiences in Lithuania have greatly inspired my faith.

Dear Ms JolantaI am Jim Braude, part of the group (FLINN etc) you just handled during our recent visit to (our) beautiful country.I want to thank you again. It was absolutely wonderful. Special thanks to your guide, William who did a fantastic job as our guide.I must tell you that the moment we stood in the cemetery in Ariogala, where both of my great grandparents are buried, this is a moment i will never forget. William's determination to get me there, and his balanced perspective on issues surrounding the holocaust, all added to an experience of a life time.Your country is in my blood. Thank you. Until the next time.Jim BraudeGreat grandson of Chana Meera Napokshanksy of Ariogala and Iankel Zel of Datnuva.07 September, 2010
Hello from Baku.
Thank you and Iga for the fantastic Northwestern trip. All reports are very positive. I really appreciate your work making it a successful tour. Herebelow are some comments from Arlene Alpert-Mehlman.
I am exhausted from jet lag, but wanted you to hear positive feedback..Trip was all Es-exciting, educational, and emotional.. It is a trip hard to come down from, as so many sights, such as memorials to murdered people and concentration camps, were very stirring. I found Warsaw especially depressing..I was glad that our last day ended the trip on a somewhat better tone as I got to visit my grandparents home towns..Our personal guide, Iga, had done her homework and gone to the towns in advance to check everything out and meet some people who were able to guide us..she is a lovely person, whose family's involvement in saving 28 Jews during the war years, was an instant way to bond with us and demonstrate her sincere interest in Jewish life...Like other guides, we were amazed by the great lengths she had gone to, to study and learn about Jewish history and culture..They are to be commended...and thanks to her, we have now even met the mayors of some of these places.
04 September, 2010
I have not had a chance yet but I wanted to thank you for the terrific job you did with this group to Belarus.
They all had a great time and were very happy that they made the trip.
They told me that Irina was wonderful and that Boleg, the driver, was most accommodating.
I hope you got a positive report from Irina as well.
Hopefully, we will do it again. If not to David-Horodok, perhaps to other areas.
Warm regards and thanks again,
Rosalyn (and Emily).

Our tour in Baltic was very excited and we enjoyed it very much. Everything is well arranged by your company and the guides are also excellent, Cornelia, Ieva and Magrid.
We thank you very much for your kind attention and great service to us.
Thank you once again for your great assistance to us. Of course we will contact you again in our second visit to Baltic next time and will advice our friends to visit your country.
May God bless you and please let me know if you have opportunity to visit our country.
with our best wishes,
Guntur & Maria.

Srtas. Alicija y Renata
1.- Ya de regreso en Argentina, Rosario, queremos con mi esposa Lilians hacerles breve comentario sobre nuestra vivencia del Baltico - Lituania, Letonia y Estonia - para el que Ud. nos proveyeron de hotelería y traslados.
Todo muy bien, buenos los hoteles - Mabre, Domina Inn y Domina Almarine - excelentemente ubicados. Los medios de transporte buenos y facil acceso a las respectivas estaciones de omnibus.
Tuvimos un solo inconveniente al llegar a Vilnius el 31 de mayo al aeropuesto por Lufthansa. El servicio de traslado no fue prestado, no concurrió la persona a quienes Udes. encomendaron. Se lo informamos para que tomen los recaudos consecuentes, y nos acrediten en la tarjeta el valor de ese servicio.
2.- Ahora lo mas importante.
Conocimos lugares y gentes, educada, con una presencia que denota educación y positiva contracción a las tareas en las que están empeñados.
Sus Iglesias, Católicas u Ortodoxas en perfectas condiciones, abiertas a los feligreses, a quien observamos en actitud de rezo sincero.
No hemos tenido dificultad con el idioma, ni con el cambio de monedas, aún en los restaurantes para elegir el menú y pedir vino, bebida que los argentinos consumimos habitualmente en lugar de la cerveza - birra -.
Nos movilizamos con los mapas proveidos por los respectivos hoteles, y a caminar.
Vimos a tres paises bálticos en mejores condiciones socio-económicas-cultural, mejores que en los que observamos luego en Italia, cuando recorrimos la Tascana y parte del Piamonte.
Y ningún signo de la sovietización vivida como remanente cultural, evidencian sociedades occidentales y cristianas mas ricas en eso que en el resto de europa.
Creemos que con la Rusia actual, son los que mejor futuro tienen de los demás europeos, incluido Francia o España o Italia.
3.- Lituania, Vilnius, merece un comentario particular.
Nos sentimos como "en casa", del Hotel Mabre al centro varias veces a pié. En otras veces a San Casimiro, de igual modo, otra atravezando un hermoso parque bordeando un simpático rio - arroyo le llamamos aquí -, muchos estudiantes descansando a su vera en pequeños grupos juveniles.
Impresionan como gente sustancialmente buena, tal como lo experimentamos con el aporte inmigratorio de lituanos en la Argentina. Y sus mujeres, un capítulo aparte, el que no trato porque Lilians se enojará.
Difundan su pais, que si bien no está en los circuitos tradicionales de turismo, tiene mucho que proponer en ese sentido.

Labas Rita,Sirdingas aciu uz puiku musu keliones planavima. Hoteliai buvo tikrai "first class" ir abi gides ismintingos ir apsiskaiciusios. We all had so much fun and plan to go to Lithuania again. You are a first-class travel agent we will recommend to our friends!Sirdingai,Daiva ir Marty21 June, 2010
Thank you for all you did for us in our recent visit to Lithuania. My mother and I had a delightful time, and you took good care of us. If we can ever solve the mystery of our last name, I would like to make a visit to Suvalkija and Mariampole some day.Aciu, Joel Tishken17 June, 2010
Ich habe gestern mit Herrn Wirth gesprochen und heute auch sein Feedback
betreffend dieser Reise erhalten.
Es war alles bestens. Vor allem ist er begeistert von der Reiseleiterin Audra.
Sie sei eine ausgezeichnete Reiseleiterin mit einem sehr breiten Wissen und bestem
Deutsch. Ebenfalls menschlich eine warme und hilfsbereite Person.
Hotels und Bus waren auch alle sehr gut.
Auch die Rückreise mit Herr/Frau Willimann wurde bestens geregelt.
Nochmals herzlichen Dank für deine gute Zusammenarbeit bei dieser Gruppe.
Viele Grüsse aus der Schweiz

Thanks again for an excellent and professional organisation of our trip through the Baltic last week.
Schedule was OK, everything was well prepared in hotels, restaurants...
Migle and Miina are excellent guides. Edita is lacking some confidence but is actually a good guide.
Rolandas is a carefull and very good driver.
Thanks also for responding positively on some minor changes from our side.
Beste regards and, who knows, untill next year !

Hallo, liebe Regina,
Dir nochmals herzlichen Dank für die tolle Reiseführung. So haben wir Littauen und Lettland gut kennen gelernt und sind zu wahren Fans geworden. Die Gruppe ist ganz begeistert, es war aber auch wirklich ein voller Erfolg.
Die Reisezeit war auch gut, weit und breit noch keine Touristen, so konnten wir alles geniessen, einschliesslich Panorama-Blick im Gauja-Park.
Mit herzlichen Grüssen

Liebe Kristina Martinaviciene,
wir sind gestern gegen Mitternacht wieder in Deutschland angekommen. Wir haben viele neue Eindrücke aus Litauen mitgenommen und werden gerne einmal zurückkommen. Uns hat der Aufenthalt sehr gut gefallen.
Ich darf Ihnen und Ihren Mitarbeitern nochmals sehr herzlich für Ihre Organisation danken, die Fahrt war für alle ein Erlebnis. Unsere Fremdenführerin, Frau Mazeikaite, der freundliche Busfahrer, Herr Schuhmacher sowie die perfekte Organisation hatten dabei einen wesentlichen Anteil.
Herzliche Grüße aus Deutschland
voglio proprio ringraziarti per tutto l'aiuto che hai dato a noi ed ai Cameristi della Scala.
Lo spettacolo è andato molto bene, con tutto esaurito e un entusiasmo tutto lituano per la buona musica.
Dopo il teatro abbiamo bevuto un paio di bicchieri con i Maestri, ed hanno confessato di essersi trovati meravigliosamente: che tutto era di altissimo livello (trasporti, hotel, cibo, pubblico, simpatia, ecc)
Stiamo pensando che forse potremmo organizzare con loro anche qualcosa d'altro.
Mi spiace solo che non ho visto (anche se mi hanno detto che c'era) Egle.
Tutto bene quindi.

Gentile Signor Pavel.
Siamo rientrati entusiasti del nostro viaggio. Bello ,piacevole ,interessante,in ottime sistemazioni e… persino con bel tempo! Siamo anche riusciti ad andare all’opera di Riga a vedere un buon Don Giovanni.
I suoi suggerimenti sono stati preziosi e gli alberghi ottimi per questo la ringraziamo tanto e al più presto le riporteremo le guide che ci ha prestato.
Faremo molta pubblicità con gli amici a questi bei paesi! A presto dunque
Olga maestri rivolta
auch ich habe zwischenzeitlich schon mit Herrn Widmann sprechen können und er hat auch mir gesagt, dass alles gut gelaufen ist und geklappt hat.
Für die hervorragende Organisation und die gute Betreuung möchten wir uns auch ganz herzlich bei Ihnen bedanken!!
Es ist doch sehr beruhigend zu wissen, dass man sich auf eine Agentur verlassen kann!
Sehr geherte Frau Martinavicienne,
nach der sehr gelungenen Reise nach Litauen möchte ich mich bei Ihnen ausdrücklich für die hervorragende Organisation bedanken. Unsere Kunden waren sehr zufrieden. Herzlichen Dank für die vielfältige Unterstützung!
Einen besonderen Dank auch für die Vermittlung von Frau Regina Jomantiene, die unsere Gruppe erstklassig betreut hat.
Mit freundlichen Grüßen
Jörg Widmann, Reiseleiter
Wir sind nun alle von unserer RIGA-Reise wieder nach Berlin zurückgekehrt. Es hat alles bestens geklappt. Die Reiseführerein hat sich als wahre Perle erwiesen, das gute Wetter war zugleich auch eine gute Fassung dieser Perle. Alle Teilnehmerinnen und Teilnehmer waren durchweg zufrieden.

Laba diena Alicija,
Visu pirma, didziausias aciu uz operatyvia pagalba!!!
Nepaisant smulkiu detaliu, kelione, manau, pavyko. Ispudziai pas turistus labai geri. Svarbiausia, buvo puikus oras, gera atmosfera. Pasiseke, kad pataikem i gatves muzikantu diena. Labai patenktinti gidu Vladimiru. Labai gaila, kad buvom prisversti suspausti ekskursine programa Trakuose, kad laiku spetume iki sienos davaziuoti. Ant sienos buvome lygiai 0:00 :)) Bet tikrai labai idomiai pasakoja! Neigiama atspalvi inese pats kelias, kuris gan varginantis, bet cia jau nieko nepadarysi... Tad viskas praejo puikiai! Ir dar karta aciu uz toki darba!
For quite some time, I have been meaning to thank you properly for the excellent and kind arrangements for our recent trip to Villnius and Riga and I do apologize for this late e-mail. Thanks to your help, we had a wonderful time in the two Baltic countries. All four of us are very grateful to you for the perfect selection and arrangements. We enjoyed every moment we spent there. It was much too short and hectic a stay and we are hoping to return in the near future. On our/my next visit, I am hoping to have the pleasure of meeting with you.
Our time in the two lovely countries made us realize just how little we know about them. It seems the Baltic nations still remain a relatively unknown region in Japan. Although the two countries and their people seem quite different, we are very much impressed and touched by the high cultural standards as well as the national pride of the people of both countries. Your people have the quality and perspective that our Japanese have unfortunately lost in the recent years of economic success and we feel we can learn from you. We also think the Baltic region has great tourism potential in Japan.
I want to thank your agency for providing an excellent car and driver, and and exceptionally well trained and delightful guide for our visit to Vilnius and Kaunas this week. It was a wonderful experience, and the quality of service was fantastic. Please relay our gratitude and best regards to both driver and guide.
Richard and James
siamo appena tornati dal ns. giro a San Pietroburgo, Helsinki e Tallin. Tutto bene, è stato bellissimo e ha funzionato tutto alla perfezione,
non ci sono state né sorprese né disguidi, tutto è andato secondo i ns. desideri. Grazie ancora, e complimenti per la Vs. professionalità.
Ci risentiamo al prossimo giro. Ciao. Vincenzo
Just to feedback on the weekend. The hotel was fine with friendly, helpful staff and we have fed this back to them direct. All the arrangements worked perfectly; the driver was waiting for us when we arrived and he turned up on time to return us to the airport. Vilnius is an ideal spot for a weekend break particularly when the weather is good, which it was, there is plenty to see, and plenty of restaurants / bars to choose from, all in all a great weekend.
Thank you for all your efforts in arranging the weekend, I would not hesitate to recommend your business to others, and indeed I would be happy to use you services again in the future.
Buon giorno Renata e Pawel,
mi fa piacere informarvi che il gruppo è rientrato contento dal tour ed ha apprezzato le visite svolte. Buoni/ottimi gli alberghi, molta brava la guida di Riga anche perché parla molto bene l'italiano ma brave anche le altre due.
Per quest'anno credo che non avrò altri gruppi, ma state certi costantemente propongo ai miei cliente questa destinazione !
Grazie per la collaborazione e cordiali saluti
Ho appena finito di parlare al telefono con il Capogruppo del grp Arcomboldo.... sono contentissimi del viaggio e mi hanno fatto i complimenti.
Gli alberghi, i ristoranti e le guide tutti buoni e bravi. Mi ha detto che l'hotel di Tallliin è bellissimo. Comunque grazie a te per l'organizzazione e per il felice svolgimento del viaggio.
SEI COME VORREI FOSSERO GLI OPERATORI, VELOCI, CORTESI, EFFICIENTI. GRAZIE PER LA TUA GENTILE, CORTESE COLLABORAZIONE
Avec du retard, je voulais vous remercier pour le temps que vous m'avez consacré à Vilnius. J'ai beaucoup apprécié.
Nous sommes revenus enchantés de notre périple aux Pays-Baltes. Nous avons passé de très bonnes vacances. Merci beaucoup pour votre aide.

For my sister and me, this was the first visit ever, and I think we were both very at ease, and very appreciative of the land, the beauty, and the very nice people. Speaking for myself (although I know Vikie agrees), Vilnius was a big surprise -- no idea there was such a beautiful senamiestis! Reminded me of Rome, Paris, or any other old and venerable European city, with exquisite architecture, especially the churches. With all the tourists there from different lands, it certainly had an international flavor. Palanga too struck me as extrordinarily beatiful - and Neringa, and Nida. Anyway, I could go on and on. All in all, it was a wonderful trip, and I believe your planning and guiding it really made it happen, and made it work. By the way, mother had her walker with her throughout - a walker on wheels -- and we could hardly keep up with her at times! It was an excellent journey, and I just wanted to share some of these highlights.
Again, thank you for helping us make this happen. It could not have been better in any way. Mother swears she’s too old to ever go back, but, we’ll see! I’d like to go back with my husband, share some the adventure with him!
May all your travels be safe, and very enjoyable. It has been a pleasure working with you throughout in planning this lovely adventure!
Ciao Pawel e Renata,
ho parlato ieri con il cliente Tour Leader di questo gruppo, tutto è andato molto bene, sia hotel che ristoranti che guide. Il gruppo è stato molto contento.
Tranne quei piccoli imprevisti che però non sono di vostra competenza (bagagli, etcc.. mi hanno poi anche detto che due pax sono dovuti rientrare prima per problemi famigliari).
Grazie ancora di tutto e .... alla prossima!!
As for Vilnius itself, what a superb place! It’s a lovely, historic
city, the people are all very friendly and good fun, and there are lots
of excellent bars and clubs for us tourists - I don’t think we could
have chosen a better place to go.
Thanks for all your help, I hope we’ll be back one day!
Sending this e-mail through "in total" ! so that you can get the whole picture from Barbara !
WELL DONE ! .. looks like you did a fantastic job for this group !
Thank you very much indeed !
Maybe the Monika comments need to be checked out ?
Why didnt all the group get Junior Suites as confirmed ?
Both guides sound WONDERFUL ... great choice ! I hope they enjoyed it too !
My special thanks to you and your team for the wonderful job you did for our group to Vilnius. The customers and our crew were delighted with your services and we have noticed and appreciated your attention and support to our travel agency. The extra time and effort you put in were certainly worthwhile. It is a joy for me to work with such dedicated and talented colleagues.
Thank you Jurgita,
You are so fast!!!!
Definitely the fastest out of all our suppliers, it is really easy doing business with you.
Hope to do many more reservations with you.
Thank you again
It was nice meeting you in Vilnius! Gail and I are now home and I want to thank you for your excellent trip planning skills! Everything worked perfectly and we had a marvelous time. I will keep your email and company information and be certain to refer to you friends who are planning trips to the area your company services.
Thanks again for all your help and planning.
Vielen Dank für deine e-mail. Die Gruppe ist wieder gut und zufrieden nach
Hause gekommen. Von deiner Organisation her und auch von der Reiseleiterin
her war alles bestens.
Ja, so ist eine wirklich sehr schöne Reise mit vielen neuen Eindrücken und
zufriedenen Kunden zu Ende gegangen. Wir bedanken uns für deine Bemühungen
und richte bitte auch der Reiseleiterin unser besten Grüße und unseren Dank
Liebe Grüße aus dem jetzt "kalten" Deutschland - vielleicht bis zum nächsten Mal

Sehr geehrte Frau Dovile,
