"Thank you Mike!"
We felt very lucky to have Mike as our tour guide and had fun day out and about in Latvia. The open-air art museum was ok for a stroll but not hugely exciting in my opinion - luckily Mike had a good instinct for what we would find more/less interesting and paced the tour accordingly. So we went on to Kuldiga which for me was the highlight of the tour - lovely town and waterfall, and a nice way to spend some time out of the city. Mike is an exceptional tour guide and a real highlight of our whole trip to the Baltics :)
"Kuldiga - the best tour of our two week stay"
We were met on time by our excellent and friendly tour guide Mikelis. We had the opportunity to see the real countryside of Kurzeme travelling through pine forests and open farmland with rustic old farms some long deserted. At every point Mikelis made admission to places effortless for us. We enjoyed the museum of cloth dolls in Sabile and the local owner showed us many of the old relics of the past. We climbed to the top of the vineyard in Sabile for a spectacular view from one of Latvia's 'mountains'. Munching an apple, we reflected on the war and bloodshed which had taken place here in the past. On to Kuldiga and lunch of authentic Latvian dishes cooked perfectly and a modern presentation in a wonderful restaurant complete with jazz music. We walked around Kuldiga's old, unchanged cobbled streets and churches. before Mikelis took us down to the widest waterfall in Europe. The local museum which is free to enter was a calm and fascinating trip back in time. Do not miss this gem. Mikelis allowed us as much time as we wished at the sites and although we had no English we were able to discuss the experiences of his parents and grandparents in the Soviet era as we described the escape of my wife's mother, uncle and grandmother during the 2nd world war. We could not have wished for a better tour nor for a better tour guide in Mikelis. We learned much more about Latvia in one day than we had in the previous 10 days.
"Enjoyable time with Daument in Kuldiga "
Our guide, Daument is very good. He keeps the tour alive with his energetic nature n explanations of local Riga culture. Will recommend going on a tour with Daumant.

"The guide is excellent..."
Tour guide is so knowledge about the nature and history.... but the best one is when we stuck in the forest , he tried to solve the problems.He ran so far away to ask for help even though the tools wasn’t work. Thank you for the guide.
"I highly recommend this tour! "
I did the Kuldiga tour in Latvia with Ance. It was a great day trip, lots to see and do. Ance was fun and full of interesting facts and opinions. It was great to get an insight into the country, history, culture and its people from a local. Highlights included a walk across the widest waterfall in Europe, Venta, a visit to sand caves and eating at a local cafe.
This was a great tour and our tour guide was a hero. She answered any questions we had, and was very friendly. I don't usually leave reviews, but I couldn't help but share my great experience on this tour with this company. We heard about them in Tallinn and did the Free walking tour there as well and decided to see some Latvia also.
