I`m a certified guide in Riga city and being guide in this city is a pure pleasure. Previously I have worked as a guide also in Cesis and in Liepaja. Riga is the city which I love and I like to discover new angles of it everyday. I am a passionate traveler myself (26 countries so far), so I understand that travelers are looking for a unique experience. I love to read and I have always enjoyed history, architecture, arts, so I have many stories about that in Riga. My daily work is connected with marketing, so I have a very good knowledge what is going on in various areas in Latvia - economics, culture, society etc., which gives additional value to my excursions.
