A-MA-ZING: found the bus quickly and the tour started at the moment we took off. The guide, cheerful lady, was amusing and talked practical, saying about interesting places of Vilnius and some lifehacks of the city. At Trakai Castle we somehow managed to enter for free, and it was where the historical, architectural and exhibitions past of excursion begun; again, the guide was obviously skilled and professional, pointing at most important and fascinating places/moments of past only. Free time was just enough to surf the souvenir shops and pick a cozy place to have lunch. Genuinely delightful experience!
I was expecting an audio machine when I booked this but ended up with an actual tour guide providing information whilst on the bus trip over from Vilnius to Trakai. No complaints there as she was rather informative. When arrived in Trakai it was pretty much free and easy. Worth paying €8 to enter the castle ground and also to walk around the surrounding area of the outer castle grounds (which is free). However if travellers requires an audio guide or have a guide to explain the rich history of Trakai, this may not be the type of tour they would have in mind.
Left exactly at 11, back right at 3 pm, time for our English tour of the Catacombs at the Vilnius Cathedral. Trip out into the country was used by our guide to give us a great compact history of Trakai and it's peoples. Just the right amount of time for a visit to the castle, a boat ride on the lake around the castle, and a walk through the quaint town. You won't be disappointed.
Short and sweet. Buss will take you almost to the castle, you'll have two and half hours to explore, and then you go home. Two hours was enough for castle and a lunch. Castle itself was meh, but museum inside was good.
The length of time there was just about right - it was like a private tour - I was only one on the bus - loved it - I do think that the castle has missed a trick by not having a cafe there tho -
