Exceptional way to travel.

Mike : a five star guide !
we enjoyed the trip especially because of the very positive assistance of Mike.
A swift driver, good company, very social but paying attention to our privacy:
he gets a five stars !
He communicated us his enthusiasm for his country by telling us the legends to make us understand better the national searching for identity.
Nobody imitates Brezhnev better than he does !
He is remarkably mature for his age and polite : a promise for a country that suffered history.
The trip was interesting, apart from the military museum - but that,s from my point of view of course. He went out of his way to please us and was open to any of our requests, adapting smoothly to our wishes. He,s a good singer too !
We couldn’t, dream of a better guide : Mike, you,ve reached the maximum of
our satisfaction! Keep up this high level and work on the negative impression local people gave us by being very unfriendly and stern : nowhere in the world
we had this so negative impression of locals ! One day we even counted the
people that smiled : 4 in total !!
Listening to the other passengers they had exactly the same opinion, so we started joking when arriving in Tallinn : smile cause we,re out of Riga !
I,m sure the younger generation will change this attitude and will welcome
tourists in a more positive way : the price of goodies to buy was immediately adapted to european standards (included the Traveller bus fee !!) not the attitude though, which is a pity cause tourism is a very welcome income....
Smile and you,ll be in for a better living !

ps. just take away the central market from the to do list !
Riga–Tallinn Sightseeing Tour Bus
Perfect bike tour showing gems a bit outside from the city center.
Daily Bike Tour of Riga
Very nice day-trip from Riga to Vilnius
Im very glad I could do this trip and visit places in Latvia and Lithuania I couldn’t go to on my own.
Laura, the guide was very positive and interesting. Everything was on time and according to plan. Only good surprises!
I just consider that Kaunas wasn’t that interesting (sorry) compared to other places and passing it would allow to spend more time, in Trakai castle for example.
Anyway I would definitely recommend this trip to whoever wants to discover Baltic countries, patrimony, history and culture.
Thanks a lot for the experience :)
Riga–Vilnius Sightseeing Tour Bus
Excellent tour and guide!
Liga is an excellent tour guide and took us on the "Soviet Ghosts of Riga Walking Tour". She is very knowledgeable and has personal experience from the Soviet times. The tour was very well designed, took us to places of great interest on the subject. After starting close to old town, she took us further out by public transport (all tickets were included in the cost of the tour). She offered us couple of options for ending our tour which was really nice. We had really good conversations on several topics about the Soviet occupation and also current situation in the Baltics. She also recommended places to eat and things to do. Overall, I would highly recommend this tour if you are interested in the topic and want to meet someone who works hard to give you a great experience.

Nice tour

Art Nouveau Tour with a Knowledgeable Guide
Liga guided us around Riga in a very comprehensive tour of its Art Nouveau buildings. She even managed to get us into a wonderful building with a stunning set of murals depicting day and night (that was worth the price of admission alone!). We are great fans of the Art Nouveau era but still found much that was new and exciting during this vibrant tour. Highly recommended!
Magical Art Nouveau Tour of Riga
Giving it 5 stars because we can’t give it 10!
This was an AMAZING trip. Our guide, Laura was entertaining, fun & very knowledgeable. She was a good sport and flexible to accommodate the needs of our group. We so enjoyed our time with her. Each stop was something unique and different - well off the beaten path. We highly recommend this trip to anyone traveling between Riga & Tallinn.

The Best Way to Experience the Baltics: Riga-Vilnius Sightseeing Tour
Our Riga-Vilnius Sightseeing Tour Bus provided an amazing snapshot of the Baltic region. Majestic monuments, picturesque palaces, exquisite local cuisine, postcard-perfect cities, verdant countryside -- our day trip from Riga to Vilnius was sensational. Our tour guide, Alina, was exceptionally knowledgeable. She not only answered all of our questions -- but also provided stories of the region which enriched our cultural understanding. We lucked out with a dazzling autumn day and excellent company. In short, it was the perfect way to travel.

Wonderful Tour!
I truely enjoyed the tour. Though weather was not great, the guide was good enough to cheer us up and he used music effectively to entertain us.
Riga–Vilnius Sightseeing Tour Bus
Nice tour, special guide
The tour itself I would recommend, it is something very particular to do in Riga. Bridges are illuminated and you actually paddle on the river and through the canal. Our guide was very knowledgeable when it came to Riga history and paddling itself. However there are some cons to this trip: When it is 13° at night, I do not necessarily need history information about Riga. At this time of year the trip could start much earlier, so it doesn’t end at 1:15 at night and you can be earlier on the river than 11:15 after a lot of logistics and explanation on how to use the kayak. The guide itself treated us Very dominantly and “military style”, which I personally found inappropriate. We have been customers and I hope he learns to be customer oriented soon
Riga at Night Kayak Tour
Good and interesting drive
The tour was fun and we stopped by many interesting places. This is therefore a much better option than just taking a Lux Express if you were to travel from Riga to Tallinn.
Riga–Tallinn Sightseeing Tour Bus
Great
I was lucky to have Laura as a guide. She told clearly and with humor everything we need to know about the places we have visited, and even more.
Riga–Vilnius Sightseeing Tour Bus
Makes the trip to Tallinn interesting
If you have the time then I recommend taking this trip rather than going direct. Depending on your interests, all the stops offer something. Our guide Michel was very enthusiastic (even singing for us) and full of information.
Riga–Tallinn Sightseeing Tour Bus
Great tour in tha malls
Past and present melted together as we walked trough the central marked. The guide gave us a lot of interesting bonus information. And we tastes some of the specialities at the end.
We can warmly recommand the Latvian food tasting tour at Riga Central Market.

Camille is great!
Very informative tour to know local culture, food and people! Camille is great as guide, driver, time keeper, photographer and language specialist. I could not only stop by many sight seeing spots but also tried local food. During driving she introduced me Baltic history and languages. I really recommend this tour! Very convenient as transportation and informative.
Riga–Vilnius Sightseeing Tour Bus
Great experience
Had a great time kayaking through the city. I’d recommend for sure

We followed the map from the website and ended up waiting outside the wrong side of St Peters For a bit...the guide didn’t seem too happy we were late 🙊
But we got there eventually!

It’s a nice interesting way to spend a few hours in a new city!
Riga at Night Kayak Tour
Brilliant way to see night time Riga
I would highly recommend this activity. Our guide was excellent and great with me and my friend who had some navigation issues at first with the kayak but once we got the hang of it then it was great. You are picked up from St. Peter’s and given a full explanation about the kayak and where you will go. I felt really safe during the whole tour and in control of the kayak. We saw Riga in a completely different light and got to see beavers along the canal. My one thing I would say is if you are not interested in kayaking or think you will tire easily then this may not be the trip for you. My friend had never kayaked before and has no upper body strength whatsoever and she found it hard.
You should definitely add this to your to do list whilst in Riga.
Riga at Night Kayak Tour
Awesome Riga Tour on water
We loved the tour on the river, first we thought that it will be too hard for our hands but eventually it was fun and interesting. The guide was professional and had lot of interesting facts to tell us. Loved the jokes about Estonians and Latvians :) I know that some people have told that the tour was to long for the, yes we finished 1:20 but it was worth it, we loved every moment of this tour. So if you are going to book this tour, to not tell your friend that you are coming to the club with them ;)

Best regards
