Your local guide and master of all things Stag Republic in the Baltics is the gorgeous Tamara (such an angel!). A former guide in Budapest, this hardcore partier and Russian speaker decided to move to Latvia to open up our office there. She will be your first point of contact in Riga – you lucky devil. Stag Republic guides are carefully selected for their local knowledge, enthusiasm and excellent English skills, although many of them speak several languages. Many are still in university and work for us part-time on weekends. The average age is around 26. Almost everyone has studied or worked outside Latvia for at least a couple of months. Several of the guides are taking tourism and hotel management courses and have had placements in the UK and the USA. But, because they are locals, they also know everything there is to know about Riga nightlife, the restaurant scene and much more. And they simply just love showing visitors around their hometown.
