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
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

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
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.

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

If you like Second Hand & Vintage, you just need this tour!
If you are new in Riga and want to know how to get second hand & vintage, this is for sure the guided tour you are after! You will visit places I am sure you had not found by yourself and you also get the picture of what Riga can offer in the second hand industri. The guide was super and had well knowledge both about the indisutri & about the city history. I enjoyed myself, learnt a lot about Riga and of course about how to get the good vintage and second hand. Thank you!
Riga Retro & Vintage Shopping Tour
Awesome!
This was an awesome experience! The remainings of the storm "Herwart" created a few pretty nice challenging waves in the Daugava river, that made a lot of fun when crossing it. After arriving on the other side and entering the channels of Riga's oldtown a very exclusive feeling came up. Honestly, it is awesome to look into the city this way. Definately recommendable! Whenever we'll be back in Riga, we gonna repeat this.
