Daumants (LV) Tour Leader

Daumants is from Latvia and he says that he was born to be a geographer. We are not entirely sure what that means because he doesn’t like to get his hands dirty with digging around and looking for funny rocks. Instead he likes to gaze at the sky and dream - this too is an option for a geographer. Daumants has even been a professional weather broadcaster on Latvian radio. This means of course that he has no trouble with public talking or finding a subject to talk about.

Other than weather Daumants is also a fan of human history and that of planets. Get him talking about Mars or the Moon and you will never hear the end of it. Like any Latvian Daumants likes fast things, especially cars. If driving can be called a hobby then this would be one of Daumants’.

Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor

"The tour is 👍 great"

Thanks for your detailed introduction of all sights, we enjoyed our trip very much. We are all independent countries!

"More interesting than just going by bus"

Pleasant trip with good guide though stops were not massively interesting. A flavour however of the countries and I enjoyed seeing the bobsled track.

"Informative and a taste of the countries outside the capitals. "

We stopped at four different places, two in Latvia and two in Lithuania, which we probably would not have visited otherwise. Having one guide in a small group allowed us to discuss a number of topics other than tourist sights and share a very pleasant lunch. It’s a great idea for people travelling alone or in small groups too, Several of us met up the next day.

"Great Tour with a Great Tourguide!"

Daumants was great!! Super knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and energetic. I would recommend this trip to anyone and everyone who wants to dive farther into the Baltic experience than “just” visiting the capitals.

"An Excellent Sightseeing Tour from Tallinn to Riga"

Our tour guide, Daumants, was very professional, and knowledgeable. We learned a lot of historical information about the five sights and their significance in the Estonia and Latvia history. Thank you! We will highly recommend this tour to friends if they come to visit the Baltic states.

"See the country!"

Overall my friend and I enjoyed this tour as a way to see more than just the capital cities. We really liked stopping in Viljandi and the castle ruins there. We did not enjoy the prolonged stop at the Estonian war museum- all in Estonian without English- while waiting for our lunch (not ordered ahead of time, so no tables available). We didn't eat lunch until around 2:30/3pm so bring snacks....! We really enjoyed the stop at Gaujas national park in Latvia despite the downpour during our brief hike. We enjoyed the stop in Cesis including some time for a drink- we should've gotten a snack as well. We also stopped at a bobsled run before finally reaching Riga- it offered beautiful views but could've been skipped to reach Riga before 9:45pm.
