Guna was so wonderful. We also took her Market tasting tour as well, and just loved her. Great story teller, very personable, good recommendations, and we learned a lot. Hard to ask for more than that! Thanks Guna!

This is a great tour if you want to get to know the old city of Riga. Our guru was very knowledgeable and friendly and explained the history of Latvia and Riga and had good photos and drawings to show us what the city used to look like.

Great tour guide who used information about us (where we were from) and put it in to her guiding. It was very informative, easy to understand and very interesting the whole way. We feel like we got a first basic insight about Riga and Latvia that we could use for our stay in the city. Highly recommend!
