    What to Expect
    During this extended 7-8hour tour we shall first have the 3-hour walking tour around the two Vilnius ghettos. We will follow the traces of Jewish culture in the old town where the Great synagogue was built and Gaon of Vilnius used to live. You will hear a story about the manifesto and the fight of Jewish partisans. We shall also walk into the Choral synagogue, and explore a very old mazzes making machine there. After that I will drive you to the only active Jewish cemetery in Vilnius where the remains of Gaon of Vilna and Ger Tzedek are. After visiting the cemetery we will drive to the Ponar forest which was the Lithuanian version of a death camp.
