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.

What people say about Mikelis (LV)

Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor

"Wordly & religious splendor"

A great mix of a beautifully renovated palace and a pilgrimage site made by & for people (not institutions). Rundale palace is managed with obvious respect for Latvian heritage (e.g. wearing plastic shoe coverings to protect the 1760ies parquet flooring), and its (rose and other) gardens really invite you for a post-visit stroll. The Hill of Crosses is unlike any other religious site I've visited before, is still expanding, and - although there were many tourists, the atmosphere still felt 'real'. Definitely 2 sites I'd recommend visiting during a Baltics trip!

"Exceptional "

A brilliant way to learn about the two countries and transfer between the capitals. Excellent value. Our guide was knowledgeable, passionate about his country. A tremendous experience

"Great tour"

Great day, only the four of us on the tour as nobody else booked on it which was great, we were able to be picked up at our hotel instead of having to travel across half the city. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the sites he took us two and was not shy of getting into character. Tom/Paul/Dorothy/Harry

"Great to see the countryside"

Tour was well organised and I could visit places that I wouldn’t reach by public transportation. Salaspils concentration camp was really interesting for me, a WW2 enthusiastic. Also, Hill of Crosses is something that you don’t see everyday. Tour is a interesting way to move from one Baltic capital to another and visiting places in between.

"Great way to travel to Vilnius and take in the sights"

Our guide Mike was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I totally enjoyed the tour. All places were of interest and we had enough time to experience each stop. I would particularly recommend Salaspils, it was much better than expected. Lunch was very good. We had a range of ages on the tour, overall a very enjoyable experience.

"Loved it. What a great adventure"

Such a great tour. I couldn't think of a better way to explore Latvia and Lithuania. All the stop of points were of interest to the whole group and as we were on a private tour, Mike showed great flexibility in the schedule to tailor the day to us. Mike was full of enthuasiam and knowledge which added to the experience.
