Wow. What a tour. I learned so much about the history of Lithuania and about Lithuania today. Trakai is a must see, and Karnave is quite lovely -- that alone made the trip worthwhile. But what made the trip amazing was all of the information and the contextualization. This was a great trip, and I highly recommend it.
The tour, and especially the tour guide, Giedrius Cyras, who was so knowledgeable, friendly, realistic. I insisted I have him as my guide on my tour the next day, and he was even better than today. The capitals are all beautiful, and having the chance to see places like this one-on-one with a local person made it all the more interesting and better. He helped me understand my Lithuanian heritage, and the country as it was, and now is.
