I really enjoyed the tour led by Hardys. He was extremly knowledgeble about Riga and open for any questions. Also he put a personal note on as he spoke about his own and his familys experiences made during the Sovjet time. I highly recommend this tour if you can follow up walking and gaining information longer than 2-3 hours. Thank you
