Lisa is an excellent guide and had clear memories of living through the transition to independence in the early 1990s, as well as family anecdotes from the ww2 period which brought home the horrors of living through wartime occupations.
As this was a private tour we could indulge ourselves in additional discussions about other Riga issues, so covered many other interesting areas like the Orthodox Cathedral and the new State Library, finishing up at the memorial to those who were deported to Siberia during the Russian occupation in the 1940s.
Highly recommended, if this is a subject that interests you.

The tour should have finished at two but it ran over a little and Liga was really patient and stayed with us.
The actual content of the tour was fascinating and we learnt a lot about architecture and sime great stories from the history of Riga.
We learned and heard so much about Riga, the people, the food, the buildings there.
Liga was the best tourist guide ever. She tried to tell us what we were interesstes in. Thank you so much for this great day! We would really recommend the walking tour!
All areas of the City were covered, All questions that were asked were answered.
