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

"Beautiful Palace and Amazing Hill of Crosses "

We were delighted to see Mike at the Riga meeting point since he had recently escorted us from Tallinn to Riga. Mike has a good singing voice and is spontaneous with his stories. Like any good story teller, he does not let you know at the beginning that he is going into story mode. The weather cooperated with our journey. Although Mike did not have to deliver us our hotel, he surprised us again by doing just that. It is a wonderful way to enjoy sights while enjoying the weather, Mike's stories, and seeing interesting sights along the way. What a nice combination to create a terrific travel memory.

"Fatastic day"

The tour was absalutely fantastic. I highly reccomend it. A brilliant way to get from One City in one country to another. The tour included 3 castles, a national park a military museum and a bobsleigh track a fab mix of things. We were a small group of 4 plus the tour guide which was a good size fore me. As a solo traveller it was lovely to have a whole day spent with other travellers and not have to do the planning I just had to enjoy it. Our guide Mike was lovely really easy going told us lots of info about each place and interesting personal history too. Its really great value for money amd pretty much the highlight of my trip so far.

"28 September 22 Tallinn to Riga"

Fantastic! Mike is very knowledgeable, thoughtful, good at explaining the culture, and history etc. The ride was comfortable and Fun, singing sessions along the way and some of us took turns to be DJ! The sights was fabulous 👌 Believe me you get more than what you bargain! Thank you Mike, Traveller and the 3 fabulous girls ❤❤❤. Susan Low Singapore 🇸🇬

"Unique Experiencs"

Overall, an excellent way to transfer from Tallinn to Riga. Lots of history, stories and laughs. Might be nice to stop briefly at the bicycle training area, which we passed along the way. Also, military museum was closed which should have been known in advance. Church wss closed so we could only see from outside. Lunch location was great, which is right after military museum. Because it got dark early, bob sledding track was dark but we did visit as it is last stop before Riga. We had private tour. Mikelis was excellent tour guide with clear English and wonderful stories. Marii arranged this private tour on short notice because we were the only passengers on our booked group tour. Just slight adjustments should have been made for church and military museum being closed. Because this wss private tour, Millie picked us up at Tallinn hotel and dropped us at our Riga hotel, even carrying the luggage into the hotel for us.

"Good visit "

We drove with two other passengers. Good conversations. Stoped at many interesting sites. The military museum was unnecessary. The two castles and national park and bobsled track were wonderful. The total trip, though, took too long. A little less time at some places would be good. We left at 9 am and arrived 9pm. An hour earlier would have been better. Mike was a good guide and fun company.

"Great trip, highly recommended, Mike is a top notch guide!"

Had a lot of fun going from Tallinn to Riga with Mike. He is really friendly and extremely knowledgable about the history and geography of the country and it was an absolute pleasure to have him as our guide. We saw a lot of beautiful places along the way, had fun at the border, and even stumbled upon a small miliatry festval which was really fun.
