Customer feedback about Activities in Riga

Rating 4.8 based on 33 reviews

Excellent coverage of a difficult subject.
I booked this tour as I wanted to find out more about the reality of living in a Soviet satellite state and it was everything I had hoped for.

Lisa is an excellent guide and had clear memories of living through the transition to independence in the early 1990s, as well as family anecdotes from the ww2 period which brought home the horrors of living through wartime occupations.

As this was a private tour we could indulge ourselves in additional discussions about other Riga issues, so covered many other interesting areas like the Orthodox Cathedral and the new State Library, finishing up at the memorial to those who were deported to Siberia during the Russian occupation in the 1940s.

Highly recommended, if this is a subject that interests you.

great time!
we were taken around by Liga. She was fantastic. We were a hen party of 11 and Liga was so thoughtful to work some anecdotes on Latvian wedding traditions and even had a small gift for the bride.

The tour should have finished at two but it ran over a little and Liga was really patient and stayed with us.

The actual content of the tour was fascinating and we learnt a lot about architecture and sime great stories from the history of Riga.

Nice day out to Sigulda with Agrita
We had pre-booked this tour from Traveljam, thinking the programme looked interesting. Agrita turned out to be a very friendly and knowledgeable guide. She told us many interesting things, but also knew when not to talk (which is good!). Her minivan was comfortable and her driving skills OK.We visited the bobsleigh track and were lucky enough to see some training activity. On to the Gutman cave, which is situated in some charming gardens. Next was Turaida, where we visited most of the historic buildinsg on the estate, saw a lot of the statues on Folk Song Hill and then onto the castle (ruins). All the while accompanied by Agrita's stories, in which you could hear the love for her country and its traditions. Lastly she accompanied us for a late lunch with local dishes. She was very attentive to the fact that one of our group could not walk long distances. And her sense of humour matches ours. All in all a very nice day out (we were lucky with the weather too).
Day Trip to Sigulda from Riga
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.

Brilliant day out!!! Top tour with Travel Jam & tour guide Laura
I have a tour to Sigulda on the 27th March 2016 with Laura from Travel Jam. It was fantastic. She is so knowledgeable and really goes out of her way to give you a really authentic experience and tailor the tour to your specific interests. We had so much fun exploring the castle and seeing/taking part in the Easter Festivities. Even got to meet a local artist who did a brilliant pop up sculpture for the Easter Swing festival. Thank you Laura for a fab tour. You are one of the best tour guides I have had and I loved every minute. Highly recommend Travel Jam to visitors travelling to beautiful Latvia :)
Day Trip to Sigulda from Riga
Very nice tour with a very competent guide from the city center. It was very informative to see what the Soviet era was like in Riga, the history, the lifestyle and the monuments. The tour also included a small trip on tram to the market place which was nice to experience Latvians daily life.
The guide shared with us part of her own experience and life during the Soviet times as a Latvian, and also shared with us a special black bread drink on the roofs on the Academy of science building :).

Interesting Tour with a Great Guide
We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Liga was very knowledgeable and personable. This was our third time to Riga so we were looking for a tour that was different than the standard walking tour of old town - we were not disappointed. As stated in the other reviews, you get to see a side of Riga that most tourists don't get to see and you realize there is much more to this city than the old town. We send our thanks to Liga for being such a wonderful guide and we would definitely recommend this tour.

Fun and very interesting!
My friend and I are interested in history and wanted something different - preferably with a Soviet flavour...and we were not disappointed! This tour takes you beyond the standard touristic areas and allows you to explore a fascinating era of Latvian history. Our guide Liga was both charming and knowledgeable- her insights are fully authentic since she personally experienced the era, having lived there during the period of occupation. Highly recommended!

A wonderful trip!
We recently had a wonderful trip to Sigulda with Agrita of Travel Jam. She is a very knowledgeable, accommodating tour guide. She speaks very good English. She explained us bout the places very well, patiently answered all our questions. Moreover, she was very affectionate to our three year old son. The tour was nice, informative and interesting. We highly recommend this tour and Travel Jam. Thank you Agrita!

Day Trip to Sigulda from Riga
Got back from Latvia the other day and wow - Raami Travel's Soviets Ghosts of Riga was amazing. Tour operator Liga was knowledgeable and professional. She obviously knew Riga's history and culture. I was pleased with my booking and will definitely use your service again. I give my tour 5 stars. Since it was early in the season, I had a personal guide and my tour was less cumbersome and expensive than doing it myself.

An informative tour
Well done Liga. It was a pleasure to join you for the tour. Thanks for the historical info which helped us to understand many things. And we did appreciate your wonderful English and lucid presentation

We would have liked a few more points of interest to see as this tour involves a lot of walking to see just a handful of sights.

Best wishes Suzy and Larry Cohn
Soviet Ghosts of Riga Walking Tour
Very knowledgable guide
Liga showed us around. She was a wonderful guide. It was freezing cold out and we warmed up a couple of times indoors at her suggestion.
She had a very extensive knowledge of the history and culture of Riga and was determined to share as much of it as possible. It was great value for money.
I would definitely recommend this tour with her.
Thank you again Liga.

Authentic tour
This tour was carried out in an authentic fashion it was not done in a glamourised way and Liga was very knowledgeable about the soviet influence on Riga and her home town.As the group was small she could give us all personal attention and answer questions. Thank you Liga.

Great overview of Riga
Best thing about this tour is it gets you beyond the Old Town! Good knowledge during the walk through Old Town, out to the Art Nouveau district, and then around the huge central market including tasting some different types of local produce.
Highly recommended.
