    Tour led by a friendly, passionate guy. This is someone who cares about his subject and wants you to understand it. The Hill of Crosses is a place like no other; it meant a lot to me, but it may not be of interest to everyone. Stopped for lunch on the way back; nice restaurant.

    I have been using for years and have been happy with the professional tours used so far. This particular tour was a disappointment . The tour date was 1/10/2019. After 2 hours of journey , I asked what time is toilet break and was informed that not budgeted for . Nevertheless she stopped at the nearest petrol station but keep on complaining to the rest of the passengers . In fact some of the passengers also used the toilet at the stopover . Even at lunch time , she gave us 30 minutes and told us to go for local lithuation food mainly potatoes . A few of us preferred chicken dish and she replied that it will take too long 40minutes .we then asked the waitress and she replied it could be ready in 20 minutes . So we asked the guide and she replied alright but gave us an unhappy look .

    I made an interesting trip to the hills with crosses. I received a lot of explanation. Great guide and driver.

    The guide is good and offered clear explanation of the spot. Also, the lunch was fine,though I have experienced traditional food.

    This was a most interesting tour. Our guide had excellent knowledge of the history of Lithuania and the history regarding the Hill of Crosses. She was most informative. You can put your own cross amongst the hundreds of thousands there and you can walk all around savour the peace and serenity of the area. Well worth the drive through the countryside.

    Fantastic guide and lovely day trip. Perfect amount of time to see the site, great opportunity to try authentic Lithuania food at a local restaurant. Could not recommend enough!

    Me and my friend went on this trip this weekend and had a wonderful time. The guide was very knowledgeable and pointed out things along the road as well as telling us all about the history of the places we went to.

    We highly recommend this trip!!!

    I thought it was great. The Hill of Crosses is the of course the point of the trip, but we also stopped in a beautiful forest with numerous wooden crosses and were told of the bravery of amazing people and priests.

    Very interesting tour but a very long journey to reach destination -- approximately 3 hours each way 8-9 hour trip but still worth going

    Excellent tour guide. Very long trip through quite a bit of road construction. Wonderfully moving destination
