A Recent Review of this tour

Jelena was a sensitive and conscientious guide. But , more than that, she helped us significantlly with our family research into my husband's Latvian past. Jelena patiently took us to all of the Jewish landmarks- more than we ever expected in a day. I love photography, so she stopped whenever I wanted and I was lucky enough on such a beautiful day to get some great shots. We highly recommend Jelena to those interested in a comprehensive Jewish tour of Riga!!
