I learned so much from our guide (a local from Riga) that gave me a good foundation for further exploration.

Highly recommend! It was an interesting and funny tour. Rita showed us so many nice places and shared a lot of facts about the history and culture. She told us many "hidden stories", those we wouldn't be able to spot on our own
