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

"Comfortable, interesting and packed day… so worth it"

Mike was punctual, very prudent and knowledgeable and our trip from Riga to Vilnius was so smooth. The price was not cheap but all worth it. Worth every cent. Highly recommended.

"Unforgettable tour with an amazing tour guide "

Mikelis gave us a pleasant drive to Kaunas following with Hill of Crosses and Rundāle palace. The city, Kaunas, definitely is worth a visit. The walk is easy and relaxed. Mikelis adjusted to our pace and left us time to shop or have a coffee break to slow down if we need to. We are lucky to have Mikelis - He is very engaging, calm and accommodative. He shared with us the interesting details about life in Latvia. We enjoyed every second of this highly interesting tour.

"Excellent way of travel from Riga to Tallinn"

We booked a private tours for my parents (in their 60s) and I to travel from Vilnius - Riga - Tallinn. We took the Vilnius - Riga tour first, then this tour Riga - Tallinn. Our tour guide for this tour was Mike, he was very friendly, extremely knowledgeable at the locations we visited. The trip was such a great experience, I'd highly recommend this to anyone. Zero complain.

"Beautiful Gauja"

We had the pleasure to be shown around the Gauja nationalpark area by our guide Mikelis. Also, we were lucky enough to visit the Gauja river when no one else was there - truly magical! Can only recommend!

"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.
