Mikelis (LV) Tour Leader

Miķelis is a sharp mind who has a keen interest in the world around us. He appreciates places and spaces, moving between them by car, bike, boat or feet, understanding them by loving, hating and becoming a friend with them.

He studies Geography and says he likes it because it involves quite a lot of aspects of our lives such as history, culture, biology and philosophy. Besides his studies, he immerses himself into fine arts: he sings in a choir, acts and draws.

Like a true renaissance man with many hobbies and interests, Miķelis isn’t entirely sure what to do in this life so currently he has his bets on either becoming a beekeeper or the conductor of the National Song Festival of Latvia.

On his tours Miķelis will Tell you stories of local mythology and tradition and if you get lucky, teach you some Latvian folk songs. Also, he is deep into Geology so he can make your tour rock.

"Fun and enjoyable"

Had a great start to the trip, our Guide, Mike, was very informative, sang some Latvian songs and happy to answer any questions we had. The drive itself was smooth. The lunch spot chosen was really nice.

"Great informative and relaxing tour"

We had a comfortable minibus ride and walked around the historic towns of Valga, Vaidava and Cesis, as well as visiting a small military museum and Helme castle ruin, and we also had a 1-hour walk in Gauja National Park. Lunch was in a pleasant hotel restaurant. Our guide was knowledgeable about the history and ecology of each place we visited and he gave a very interesting insight into his and his family's experiences of living in Latvia and the surrounding areas.

"Lovely way to travel."

Really relax and easy tour. We have 8 people in our group, all lovely also. Our guide is also super friendly and helpful. We are so impressed. Surely recommended to friends.

"Tallin to Riga with Mike"

Nice trip with relaxing landscapes of northern lands. The guide Mikelis has been simply perfect: good driveer, nice singher, and excelent guide. The time spent during the trip an the stay has been very friendly and nice. Only the last stop in Cesis has been not so nice compared with the others

"Great day with Mike!"

We traveled from Tallinn to Riga with the sightseeing tour bus on April 25th. The pre-departure communication to confirm the reservation was very rapid: we were immediately informed as soon as the minimum number of participants was reached. We were just 4 so all the journey by van was very comfortable and pleasant. Mike was a great guide, entertaining us during the drive-time with anecdotes and curiosities but also assuring us nap-moments during longer transfers :) All the stop-overs were very interesting and has been great to see the passion and pride with which Mike told us the history of the Country and above all the conquest of independence. Everything were great, even if personally I'd liked to have more time to visit the sand cave with some additional explanation. I recommend for sure this tour, it's a good way to maximise the transfer from Tallinn to Riga, discovering and visiting places you probably wouldn't know otherwise. Thank you again Mike, you've been the icing on the cake of this tour :) kind, engaging, competent and passionate lead of the day!

"Travel with Local"

It’s great experience that you’ll travel with a local guide. It’s perfect if you have any question especially history. It will not be just a transportation but a guided tour. Highly recommended!! :D
