Inga was the perfect guide, the first stop a memorial for the partisans who fought in the war for independence, Inga told the story as walked though the park, our next stop was the Hill of Crosses they estimate over 300,000 cross, it’s a 45 min stop, but I could have spent

This trip takes almost all day and the landmark is interesting but small and quite far from Vilnius. Our guide was not very interesting and we took more time on the way than in the actual landmark. Unless you have a religious interest for the place, there should be more

Dear Anna, Thank you very much for taking a time and sharing your experience. The Hill of Crosses is located in the North of Lithuania, which means that from Vilnius there are more two hours ride one way. Most of travelers found the place worth it, as it is one the most exlusive one in the World. We also apologize that the guide did not met your expectations. Hope this experience will not prevent tyou from joining us again in the future. Kindest regards!
