Private tour guide Jelena

Jelena D.

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

We booked a tour by Jelena for a day from morning until afternoon, Jelena picked us up at the hotel and showed us the most amazing buildings and told wonderful stories about the history of Riga. We loved every moment of it. It was rainy, but Jelena was prepared with a umbrella, that she offered ud during the tour. We had a amazing lunch with Jelena, and she shared some of her family stories and was open and wonderful to talk with. In the afternoon we saw the Jugendstil buildings and heard stories from her
