Good information about downtown Riga.

The tour overall was good. Seasonally, however, had the disadvantage that it wasn't even dark. Because under ghost tour you imagine something in the dark and a little creepy.

Super organized

The guide was well prepared, punctual and enthusiastically presented his country with its history
