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.

She had a very extensive knowledge of the history and culture of Riga and was determined to share as much of it as possible. It was great value for money.
I would definitely recommend this tour with her.
Thank you again Liga.
