The alternative walking tour at midday with Kaspars is quite fun. He’s refreshingly honest with a typically dry sense of humor of the Baltic’s! Highly recommended. No free maps, though!

We enjoyed both tours (old town and alternative) with Kaspers. He is great! He goes beyond tourists topics and has a lot of knowledge in history and also architecture. Really recomendable!

In 2.5 hours we visited the most remarcable places of the city (Old Town excluded). Highly recommendable. Our guide Edward knew a lot of interesting facts about the city and society.
