Tour by Aurels

I am specializing in private tours for individuals and small groups in Riga and Latvia. Key of my tours is the small groups where we can personalize, adjust to your every wish. In large groups, it is not possible. My aim is that you leave Riga or Latvia satisfied, excited and fully understanding it regardless was it a 3-hour tour or 2 days with me.

I describe myself as educated and open-minded person. I love my family, history, innovation, science, cryptocurrencies, politics, sports, art, travelling and a lot more.

I love to share my opinion about life in Latvia, Riga because only from locals you can get the best point of view! Currently, I am living in Riga but have been born in the countryside (150 km from capital) and visited a lot of countries around Europe. I am half-blooded – father Moldovian, mother Latvian from eastern Latvia that has their own dialect. I would say that I have experienced and still living in a colorful life where east meets west and future meets the past.

I am flexible and opened for different tours according to my guests' wishes. For example Riga running tour, beer tour.

Usually, if the group is between (1-4 people) I offer tours by car. If you are more in the group, it is also possible to organize a minivan or a bus.

Good introduction to Riga
Alvils is very knowledgeable and passionate about Riga albeit his young age. A good introduction tour to such a wonderful city.
A very nice tour of Riga
I took the tour during my layover in Riga and I was very happy about it. I have a difficulty when walking, so this was just the perfect way of seeing the town in the limited time frame I had.
Very informative and friendly and it was easily possible to adjust the beginning of the tour.
Would highly recommend!
