A really fascinating tour with a lot of interesting information, we really enjoyed it to see more than the old town of Riga.
We were given a wonderful city tour of Riga by Aurels! As arranged he met us punctually at our hotel and even the constant drizzling rain did not dampen his very informative and humorous discourse on Riga's history, architecture and life. It being our first visit to this interesting and lovely city we felt that by the end of the tour we had learned so much from this very knowledgeable guide. Given the success of this tour we would certainly use Tours By Locals for any future city visits. Thank you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am glad you liked it! These words gives inspiration to open another book, article, magazine and to strive further. Thank you!

We enjoyed our tour with Aurels. He showed us throughout Riga while giving us a true history of Latvia. When we were running a little late for our dinner reservation he went above and beyond by providing transportation to get us there on time. The following day I had a few questions and he followed up with me. He is extremely knowledgeable and accommodating. I highly recommend Aurels.
Aurels was very knowledgeable of Latvia and Riga as well as other countries in the region. he had several pictures of before and after buildings, areas in Riga which were informative. well spoken, had a sense of humor. had a good time throughout the tour
We first thought about choosing a slightly older guide, but despite his youth, Aurels is a very experienced guide who knows the area like the back of his hand. Aurels had picked us up perfect on time with his comfortable Volvo. He is a very safe and careful driver. Aurels was able to give us a lot of information about Latvia and Sigulda. He is really interested in his guests and we had very good conversations about a very wide range of topics. We enjoyed the tour a lot and Aurels was a great companion.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for all feedbacks but the award- best commentary so far goes to......Wolfgang from Österreich! Thank you!

Aurels is an incredible tour guide who is extremely knowledgeable about the history and nature of Sigulda- Latvian Switzerland, Livonia Order Castles ruins, Turaida Medieval Castle, the cave, sculpture gardens, bobsled area, and so much more. He has an easy manner about him and was curious about who we are and also where we came from. He showed enormous respect to us. We were visiting from the United States. My husband and I appreciated that he spoke English so very well. We highly recommend Aurels P.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for such a fantastic commentary! Makes me feel great and strive to do, give even more. Best wishes, Aurels!

Aurels was professional with great organization and listening skills. Knowing that it's my first time in Lativa, he began the Riga tour with Lativa overview with supporting materials. He is easy to work with.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the kind words!

Aurels did a wonderful job showing us the Old Town as well as more modern areas of the city. He described the history of the city and the country, told us about industry, daily living, politics, etc. so we had a full understanding of Latvia's past and present. He also took us to a local restaurant so we could sample Latvian food. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Riga with Aurels.
