Get to know the person behind the tour


Riga, Latvia

In the person of a guide, a traveler meets the entire city and its history, and even the country and the history of an entire nation.

My story is not always without bias because I love the city and country where I live.

In my excursions I strive for excellence. My clients can expect:
intelligent entertaining historical stories, because History is real people with their dramas, ambitions, feelings and passions;
punctuality, respect and care; always positive mood and a smile.

A Recent Review of this guide

Jelena was a wonderful guide. She picked us up at our hotel and gave us a very nice and thorough tour of Old Riga. You could tell she loves her city and spent a lot of time pointing out architectural and interesting historical information. She was patient, answered our questions and didn't mind walking us around in the cold and wind. I highly recommend her!
