Santa O.

RIGA, Latvia

As a licensed guide, I am specializing in private tours for individuals and small groups in Riga and Latvia.

After graduating in International Tourism Management, I've been working in the tourism sector for the last 13 years, and I love to meet people from all around the globe and share my knowledge about the city and the lifestyle of Latvian people.

While the books and brochures provide factual information, the spirit and the story can be provided only by the professional tour guide and that is what I ensure. As a private tour guide, I am building a tour that focuses on my guests' unique interests and preferences. By entrusting your interests and expectations, you will receive an expertly planned tour with a local touch.

I have received many thanks from previous guests of which I am very proud and which confirms mine as guide's success. I love and feel the passion on tour guiding and I would like to share that with you!

Contact me to discuss your requirements and wishes and let's enjoy Riga and Latvia together!

A Recent Review of this guide

Our Jewish Heritage tour with Santa was outstanding. Santa was very knowledgeable about any questions we had and did not rush us at any point—including when we wanted to stop for photos. The tour itself was quite somber as we learned more about the Jewish population during WWII but we knew ahead of time that it would be like that. Afterwards, Santa took us on a tour of the Old Town and pointed out the highlights for us. We would recommend the tour and Santa to anyone who is interested.
