I recently returned from Riga and wanted to write a post on a Walking Tour company called Smile Line that worked out really nicely. I took two walking tours back to back -- Old Town and Jewish Riga. Both were with the same guide, Nelly, who I thought did a very nice job of maintaining the flow and providing helpful historical context to the various sights. Moreover, I had a terrific experience with the owner, Edite, who made an extra effort to help me get outside of Riga to see the Rumbula forest, which is an important site with respect to the Holocaust. Edite offered for me to join her on the public bus that she was taking home and to show me where to exit -- which sometimes can be challenging in a situation where you're essentially the only English speaker on a commuter bus. So she showed me to the location, helped me off the bus, and went along her journey. I had the opportunity to see the site on my own which I much preferred to a guided tour because of its solemn nature. Edite could have easily proposed an additional tour but instead really understood my need and made it happen. That's the sign of a good businesswoman who cares about her clients. I'm happy to recommend Smile Line (www.smileline.lv). Look for the yellow umbrella on the Town Hall Square.
