Ilze was an amazing tour guide! She was very knowledge about the history of Riga and Latvia. We had a large family group, and everyone was learned something new. She shared stories about the buildings and monuments, but also had some personal anecdotes that made the tour more special. If you want an authentic, Latvian experience - you need to take a tour with Ilze!
