What people are saying about Tukums

I had a wonderful time with Armands and his driver. we visited a lot of places, those are some very romantic and nice castles. I also stop at a winery, that was really cool.

Absolutely great trip. A private guide who was able to present local mansions and castles fluently in English. He also flexed well to our liking. We warmly recommend.
