My name is Philip Birzulis. I'm a tour guide in Latvia's beautiful capital Riga and its world-famous seaside resort Jurmala.
In my Best of Riga and Jurmala free walking tours (with a donation to the guide) and personally tailored tours, I share my passion for this fascinating Baltic country with people from around the world. My tours in Latvia are informative and fun, rich in history and legends, with some music and art thrown in for added spice. I keep my groups small, with a maximum 15 people, so everyone can enjoy the experience to the full.
