Отличный тур. Время пролетело незаметно. Мы узнали много интересного из истории Литвии и Риги. Прошлись по старому городу и заглянули в такие места куда без тура не зашли бы. Спасибо Александру! Рекомендуем!

Александр один из немногих гидов на данном сайте, кто проводит экскурсию на русском языке - что очень здорово для русскоговорящих людей со всего мира. Экскурсия "по верхам" охватывает историю Латвии в целом и Риги в частности, больше концентрируясь на городе. Мы наслаждались общением и узнали много нового - несмотря на большой размер группы, гид находит время пообщаться со всеми желающими.
