This was a trip of a lifetime! My wife and I will never forget this trip. Come2Lithuania travel agency was unrepeatable. They know the ins and outs of Baltic Countries. The logistics were impeccable, the timing of pick-ups and tours were within 5 minutes of the times they put on our itinerary. Our travel agent, Marius put is in hotels that were in the ideal locations in each city we visited.
