Super good experience. Our hiking buddy was local and had a great deal of knowledge about the city. Architecture, history, etc. We got to know the city in a completely different way than we would have done alone. Got to see the "back" of the city, the sides that tourists are not always able to discover for themselves. Highly recommended!

It was good to experience the outskirts of Riga and have a bit of history of the country. Our driver picked us up on the dot from our hotel and offered to give us a short ride around the city (since we arrived the night before and were not able to have a city tour yet prior to this out of the city tour) and we instantly agreed.

I had a wonderful time with Rozite. we walked through the city center, it was very interesting to learn more about Latvia history and the fun facts about Riga.

Friendly young man. Felt comfortable from the start. Knows the city and best places to see. Good photographer with a mobile phone as well.

It is very advisable to hire an individual guide for your own interests!
