The river boat “AITRA” is anchored at the Daugirdas Port (lith. “Daugirdo Uostas”) of The Nemunas River which is located next to The Vytautas Great Bridge (lith. “Vytauto Didžiojo tiltas”) (or previously known as the Aleksotas Bridge) near the Vytautas Great Church (lith. “Vytauto Didžiojo bažnyčia”). The boat starts a regular two-hour-long tour from there and sails down the Nemunas River to the Kačerginė town where the usual turnaround is taken. During the standard tour the boat “AITRA” passes the confluence of Nemunas River and Neris River, (lith. “Santaka”), then passes Aleksotas district, then sails through the beautiful Nemunas shores and makes a turnaround near the mouth of Nevėžis River (lith. “Nevėžio žiotys”), then returns to the Daugirdas Port via the same route.
