What people are saying about Riga

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!

Little windy on the river. Take some warm with you and some warming up drink also (local balsam for example). ;)

a great experirence. the guide was very kind and explained us a lot of the stuff we were seeing

Fantastic!
