What to expect from Vilnius Free Walking Tour

NB! All our Vilnius free walking tours, regular paid Vilnius city tours and private tours are temporarily cancelled until further notice due to the national quarantine in Lithuania! Stay healthy and safe. See you soon!

Vilnius free walking tour (Old Town & Uzupis) runs only if two or more people book the tour in advance (until 7 pm a day before). If no one books, the guide will not show up :) If you change your mind, please let us know! If you cannot book the tour anymore, it means no one booked a day before and the tour is not happening. E-mail us or call if you are not sure :)

Join our Vilnius free walking tour every day at 10 AM and 12 PM (noon)! Meet our locals guides on the stairs of Vilnius Town Hall. We are the ones with yellow bags and yellow name tags! Let’s explore Vilnius Old Town and Užupis (a self declared republic of artists) together.

During 2 - 2,5 hours Vilnius city tour you will get to visit most of the must see attractions in Vilnius. Starting from one of the main squares in the city we will stroll through the narrow old town streets protected by UNESCO to explore the former Jewish quarter, Vilnius University, St. Anna’s church, Uzupis, as well as some hidden sites that you would’t find on your own. However, this walking tour is not only about buildings and places, it’s a lot about the life in Lithuania through the eyes of people that live here. Yellow Vilnius Free Tour covers many different topics from quirky Lithuanian traditions to different communities that built the city, the grim WW2 history as well life in modern Lithuania. We will do our best not to “attack” you with only historical facts (although, all of us are professional guides in Vilnius, so if you want facts, you are more than welcome to ask them). Our guides connect history with nowadays life. We talk seriously about serious topics and we laugh together with you at funny stories (we love good sense of humour and we don’t mind self-irony). That’s why we believe this free walking tour is a great introduction in your visit in Vilnius.

As this Vilnius free walking tour is tip-based and our salary depends on our performance,  each time we do our best to give you a great sightseeing tour and answer all your questions. If you want to support our idea, you are welcome to contribute at the end of the tour. You can give 5 EUR to you guide or you can give 50 EUR whatever you feel the guide deserves :)
