I will be glad to show you beautiful capital of Latvia Riga and other nice cities of our small, but very enjoyable country. Since I started to work for the museum of Art Nouveau in Riga, I fell in love with the profession of guide, especially, if I have to guide in my home country. History is my passion so I will be glad to provide historical information about every landmark that you will see on our way, however I don’t forget about Latvians tradition and many modern things, that usually are interesting for the guests of our country. So I am trying travellers to get closer to our way of life and to get good information of the history. Of course as the guide of the museum of interiors of the turn of the last century, I am in love with architecture, so I will be glad to show you the best examples of many architecture styles, that you will find in Riga.

Tour Guide Legal Requirements

If the nature of the tour is that the guide is 'interpreting the cultural and natural heritage of an area', Latvia requires the guide have a guiding license. A person giving tours such as the 'best nightlife spots', 'shopping and fashion tour' or 'restaurant tour' for example, does not require a license. This definition follows the European standard for tour guiding (CEN).
Licensed Tourist Guides are the only professionals permitted to conduct tours in all sites and museums within a city. Licensed guides are required in those areas where the local authorities state that one of them is mandatory.
To become a Licensed Tourist Guide, candidates must pass an examination given by the local public tourist authorities.
All BestRest Tours guides have met our BestRest Tours Guide Requirements which includes warranting that they can legally give the tours they offer.
