We did the alternative tour with Kaspars which was brilliant. He was funny and knowledgable and tailored the narrative to our specific group. We saw a lot of Riga that we wouldn't have otherwise visited.

I found the meeting point very fast and like our guide Liga with yellow case!) The atmosphere of the tour was pleasant. I think that the tour Can include more roads across the city centre. Liga has perfect English and smiles often, I like this!
