This was our first visit to Latvia. We were met at our hotel by Erika who took us in her car for a fabulous day out.  As requested we visited Kemeri National Park and the area surrounding it. Erika is a lovely, friendly lady with a wealth of knowledge of her country which she imparted in perfect English.  The day was very informative and interesting and seemed to end all too quickly when she eventually dropped us back at our hotel after a full day's exploring.  In addition to all this she kindly provided home made examples of local food and drinks which were delicious and much appreciated. We would strongly recommend others engaging Erika as their guide when visiting Riga.  It would be difficult to find someone better.
