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.

"Pleasant countryside tour"

Had a great tour between Riga and Tallin. Got to learn about the history of the Baltics from a local. Got to see parts of the countryside I wouldn’t have been able to see on a motor transfer. Well worth the price/time. Was great to have a tour from someone who was so passionate about his countries History.

"Highlight of our trip"

We did the Riga to Tallinn sightseeing tour. Guide Mikelis took us for a long day full of sightseeing. We departed on time, the guide was there to greet us. The van was spacy, and very comfortable. We were so glad that we could participate, to enjoy the countryside and to see so much more of both Latvia and Estonia. Started at the bobsleigh track which was fun because we could walk down the track on foot. Soooo funny. The national park with the limestone cliffs was crazy beautiful. The guide explained a lot, let us taste some herbs in nature and he even sang for us. The towns of Cesis and Viljandi both were lovely. Had the opportunity to have lunch in a great restaurant in Valga. For us the least Intresting part was the military museum. But the highlight of the day was that we saw a wild brown bear near the woodlands, just beside the road. Incredible!!!!!! Mikelis was also so sweet to make a stop so I could photography one of the many many stork nests near the farms. I cannot recommend this tour enough, but it wouldn't have been as much fun as we didn't had this fantastic guide Mikelis.Thumbs up guys, keep on the good work!

"Nice personal tour"

We had a personal tour on sunday 9 august 2020. our guide (Mikelis) had studied geography, i remember. We really enjoyed the tour. Visited Kaunas, hills of crosses, Salaspils Memorial, Rundāle palace and had a nice local food. Our guide could tell a lot and we could talk with him about heritage from the past, differences and similarities between countries and was really helpful. Thanks for the tour!

"Great ride!"

This was the perfect way to travel and not waste a whole day in a car or plane. We got to see things that we would have never stopped for. Really enjoyed it!

"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
