Riga
My story

Greetings, traveler! Born and raised in Riga. Always enthusiastic about meeting new kinds of people, with different perspectives on life, as long as they are ready to follow my plan. Riga might not be exactly "the jewel in the crown" of your travel list, but there is plenty of beer and wine, so how bad can it really be?

What do I do here?

I’m a simple guy. I like bacon and eggs, a cup of a strong black coffee, and a soft sea breeze tickling my skin. Luckily my home country (Latvia) is able to offer me all of these life pleasures. Other than that I've been traveling the world, hosting on Airbnb, studying abroad, doing lots of different sports and working.

What's the best of my city?

I don’t want to paint with a broad brush here, but every single traveler who's been in my city fell in love with it. Riga ticks all the boxes; 1) An architectural masterpiece, Old town - check ✓ 2) The vibe - check ✓ 3) Tasty food and drinks - check ✓ 4) "What happens here, stay here" - check ✓ 5) Amazing locals who love top 5 lists - check ✓ I mean, what else is there to desire!

My tours secret sauce

You are in for silly jokes, fun facts and lots of "how in the world did we manage to get lost again but adversity is no reason to quit my tour. On a more serious note though, I can promise you a generous reception, entertainment and help with any questions you might have. Cheers!
