ligatne soviet bunker?

I want to go to the ligatne soviet bunker on a saturday in a week straight from sigulda. I understand you can catch a local bus from sigulda to ligatne but how do you get to the bunker from there? Is there a website I cant seem to find one? I would like to walk round on my own as well but do I need to book a tour? thanks!
