Giedrius was a very flexible and accommodating guide, taking us to everything we wanted to see in about 9 hours. We especially enjoyed going to the Merkine Museum to learn more about my husband's heritage in Lithuania. The water sampling and cable car ride in Druskininkai was fun, the Pyramid of Merkine a bit eerie and Grutas Park definitely unique! Giedrius customized the trip so that I did not have to climb too many stairs due to my hip injury. Fantastic day.
