Highlight of the Trip
My experience with the Night Kayak Tour through Riga's canals was one of the highlights of my trip to the city. Fresh air, a good workout, great company, and some notes on the city's history made the experience memorable. The tour is friendly towards beginner and new kayakers. Keep in mind that the tour does take a couple hours, so be prepared for an arm workout. That being said, the pace of the tour adjusts to the speed of the participants, so there is no pressure to race through. All in all, I would highly recommend Riga Night Kayak Tour to anyone looking for a unique tour of Latvia's capital.

A fabulous Riga Tour with Alvils Purics on the 16/06:18
What a fantastic idea, your very own personal local tour guide! Alvils certainly wasn’t your run of the mill guide, prior to our arrival he asked whether we had any specific ideas as to how we wanted the tour to go. Well, he certainly listened and created a beautiful taylor-made journey making our stay in Latvia a brilliant experience. Christine is a train enthusiast so really appreciated a visit to Tornakalns station and it’s history and I marvelled at the history of the architecture through the centuries. He produced some very informative maps and literature which helped give us a realistic and clear idea of Estonian. We felt at ease asking questions and nothing was too much trouble. If you hope to visit Riga this is definitely the best way to absorb the culture, history, geography, economics and so much more...... it was so special to have a proud enthusiastic young man to show us around. Thanks again Paula and Christine, St Albans, UK
Comprehensive, quick Riga tour
Fun trip through Latvia and Estonia
Really enjoyed our sightseeing tour from Riga to Tallinn. We learnt a lot about both countries from our enthusiastc Estonian guide, Andres. Pickup and dropoff points were convenient in the old town of each city, the mini van was comfortable and the five stops were interesting and nicely spaced. A great day out

magical experience
Well organised Really good instruction. Interesting snippets of history and stories. Seeing the city by night is actually different experience really enjoyable. Our group was 11 people and 1 guide. We were in double or triple canoes. The guide was very experienced and kept the group together. We were given drybags and lifejackets and taken back to the drop off point highly recommend it. We were experienced canoists and the evening was perfect the river was totally still no wind.

Riga at Night Kayak Tour
Daugava and Riga canals at night!
This is a chance to explore the old city's perimeter on a boat, and it's clearly illustrative of the medieval maritime city's life while being a thrilling adventure. This was my first kayaking in the night, and the lit canals are a great photo op. The tour guide was a very experienced hand and very accommodative. It was a great experience, thanks!
Riga at Night Kayak Tour
not good organized/ underequiped
The giy came with a damaged car to pick up 24 students. So he had to drive six times to get us into place. As he was totally unorganized it topk to mong to advice. But for the unorganized thing he blamed very good listening students not to pay attention. Finally at the water everything went well, as we were there with a good group of students. It was very exhaustong for those who were not used to do sports. At the end he forced young girls allone in the car to bring em back to St. Petris- without anyboyy warching them. The tour is an adventure but because of the bad organization nothing for big groups or student tours.
Riga at Night Kayak Tour
Real contrast to the Old Town
Very intresting and informative tour. Guide gave us a good combination of information: history, life nowadays and the future of the area. Wonderful old wooden houses in shabby chick, renovated houses, wooden churches, Jewish ghetto with many places we visited, etc... Strongly recommend this tour to get a totally different view of Riga 😀
Riga Moscow District & Old Jewish Ghetto Tour
Exceeded expectations
When me and a friend reserved a place on this tour, we expected it to be pretty commercial and impersonal, however a good alternative to taking the standard bus from Riga to Tallinn. However it was one of the highlights of our overall trip, Kert and Jaan gave this tour the personal touch that made the experience relaxed and fun. It felt as though they put as much effort as they could in to making the tour a success, the knowledge that they both had and the personal touches they added were what turned a potentially bland tour in to an utter success. Would thoroughly recommend to anybody wanting to experience the more hidden parts of these two beautiful countries.

Riga at Night Kayak Tour
Lithuania land of lakes!
We really enjoyed this tour and our guide was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about Lithuania and Latvia.. The highlight was probably the lake and castle near Vilnius.
Riga–Vilnius Sightseeing Tour Bus
Awesome way to travel between Baltic capitals
I must say, one of the wisest decisions to select this alternative to travel. I did the Tallin -Riga one also. The guides were super enthusiastic ... Lauri for Tallin Riga and Laou for this. Special mention on Heleen too for communicating efficiently from office. Will recommend for everyone who want this journey done. Eventhough its a start-up, will definitely be a huge success story in times to come. Cheers!
Riga–Vilnius Sightseeing Tour Bus
Fantastic experience
After spending a few days seeing the sites of Riga during the day, getting to see them at nighttime and on a kayak was a brilliant experience. Guide was really good at giving a quick update on how to use the paddle and generally some important safety tips. Their knowledge of the city was really good as well. Travelling across the Daugava and up the main canal of Riga was really good fun and gives the city a new perspective. One note of caution is that there were loads of mosquitoes at the boat house so look to go protected or use some deet/mosquito spray in advance. I would still highly recommend this trip though.
Riga at Night Kayak Tour
Vintage shopping tour
James was a friendly host who did his best on a Saturday (surprisingly a day when some shops are closed in Riga) to personalise the tour and take my husband and I to the places we were interested in going. So the tour was flexible and we discovered a lot about day to day life from James regarding the lativian culture and people which was an added bonus. Good tour I enjoyed it

Culture & Food Tasting Experience in Riga
Excellent Tour
We were a little apprehensive, not being great fans of guided tours. However this was a small group with a personal touch, not rushed and not doing obviously touristy type sites. Andres, our guide, was very friendly and knowledgeable. We got to see things we would not have seen doing this any other way. Well worth the time and money.
Riga–Tallinn Sightseeing Tour Bus
Fantastic Tours
We took the 12-hour trips between Tallinn and Riga and then between Riga and Vilnius. Both days were enjoyable and informative with excellent guides Olga and Triin. Whether stopping at historic castles, nature parks, monuments and museums, or even for lunch, our guides enthusiastically shared local folklore, personal stories, and knowledge of the Baltics. Seeing a little more of the Baltic countries outside of the capitals was a refreshing change as it is mostly gorgeous countryside with farms, forests, wildflowers, and storks! Don't look at any other tour operator because with Traveller Tours you've found the best!
