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.

Rated No. 1 Tours in Tallinn by TripAdvisor

"Good tour, but a little too much to see"

We covered a lot on this tour: Viljandi castle ruins, Military museum in Valga, Gauja National Park, Cēsis, and Sigulda bobsleigh track. This was both good and bad: we got to see a lot, but it also felt kind of rushed. I feel like cutting one of the stops, maybe the castle ruins, and spending a little more time at the military museum or Cesis might have been nice. Otherwise, it was great!

"Fun Filled 12 hours with Mike"

We travel from Riga to Tallinn with Mike as our private driver- guide. We enjoy the activities and find them most suitable means to know the countries. Mike is very knowledgeable and communicate well in English. We are 4 seniors of age over 65 while Mike is just over 20. There is no communication gap. He is also entertaining. Thank you Mike

"Trip to Jurmala."

The trip to Jumala with our guide Mikelis was very interesting. Mike gave many information about Jurmala and about all country. He took us to wonderfull restaurant whre the meals were delicious. Thank You very much.

"An excellent way to get from Riga to Vilnius"

The hill of crosses was definitely the highlight of the trip. Our driver/guide, Mikelis, was fun and entertaining and has a great singing voice. This is definitely way better than just getting a bus from one city to another.

"Another Great Day!"

We did this tour bus two days after taking the sightseeing bus from Tallinn to Riga and had the same knowledgeable and funny guide, Mike. We enjoyed all the stops on this tour and also had a great time trying traditional Lithuanian food for lunch. I particularly enjoyed the Rundāle Palace gardens and the Hill of Crosses, but the Rundāle Palace had so much to see that we could have done it as a day excursion. Overall, we were really happy to have Mike as our guide again, and he kept us entertained during the longer stretches of driving by playing us Latvian songs and pointing out storks/other animals along the road. Both of the sightseeing buses we took were great and I would highly recommend both of them!

"Best way to travel to Riga"

This was without a doubt one of the most enjoyable and informative experiences of our trip so far. Mike was a fantastic guide who was very friendly, open, hilarious, and shared a lot of culture and history with us. This is worth the money. I would recommend it to anyone.
