  1. Can we have a Vilnius Jewish tour Monday may15 about 3pm? 2 people.

    • Thank you for contactig us.

      Unfortunately, as these are private tours, they must be arranged at least several days in advance to ensure the availability of the guides.

  2. Looking for English Guide. Dates are July 12,2017

  3. I am looking to visit Ponar. Do you have a tour to the place?

    • Yes, we do. However, as Ponar (Paneriai) is away from the center, a car is needed to go there. Therefore, the price may be higher than the one for a walking tour. We’ll contact you about the tour so you could write the dates you’d want (also, if you’d want to see only the genocide site or any other Jewish sites in Vilnius as well) and we could offer the prices.
