What people are saying about Riga

This was a wonderful Tour with an outstanding guide. Hiking to beautiful places. Having a great picknick. We got so much information on the country, its nature and culture and history. And even tips for our next days in Riga. In the end we could visit the new and very interesting Jurmala museum. A full day. We have got even more than promised. Highly recommended.

Excellent tour, unforgettable and breathtaking. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel. Our tour unfortunately took place in the rain but nonetheless our tour guide was excellent, encouraging and engaging. Truly magnificent location and marvellous views of Sigulda, castle and Gauja national park. Worth your money, in all aspects!

We drove just before lockdown and almost had a private tour. It was very worthwhile. The captain really tried hard and was hospitable! The boat was closed with protective foils through which you could see well but not take flawless photos. This was opened for us briefly and then closed again due to the wind! Really great!

Nice walking ways, a very infotaining tour to extraordinary places and a lot of facts about Latvia and its inhabitants, too. I enjoyed it a lot and would highly recommend it!!
