Fantastic wY to see Riga
Agnes our guide was fantastic. It was great to see the real Riga outside of old town. If we'd had more time in Riga we'd have also done the food tour of the markets.
Riga inside out
After exploring the old town myself, this alternative walking tour was great. My very enthousiastic guide Eva not only gave me information about the history of the city, but also told me much about the local cultural habits. The spots we visited we're all really worth visiting.

At the end of the tour she was also keen on telling me a about a very nice and affordable place to have dinner. This place was also a bit hidden but not far away from the old town and had a very nice atmosphere with a lot of local people.
Just returned from Riga last weekend, and we went on an Alternative walking tour booked through your app. We had already done the old town tour ourselves, so wanted something a little off the beaten track! What we got was a 3 hour journey through places and history we never would have made it to ourselves. Our tour guide James was welcoming and so knowledgeable, it really rounded off a great trip to a wonderful city for us so thought I'd let you guys know and say thanks!

Agnes was the perfect guide!
Our guide instantly understood the interests of our group - we didn't only go to shops, but saw bits of Riga we wouldn't have discovered on our own. Agnes has very good history knowledge, but she doesn't overkill you with information. Also, she had a very good energy, sense of humor and excellent English, so we thoroughly enjoyed our 3hr walking tour and didn't notice the time pass so fast! She also suggested us a perfect lunch place (Galerija Istaba) and conveniently ended our tour nearby. All in all, 10 out 10 experience, thank you Agnes!
Great tour
We were a party of 4, first time in Riga, and found the tour to be very enjoyable. Agnes had a wealth of knowledge and a great sense of humour. We found the tour to be interesting and were glad we took part. It was good to hear all the history behind the Central Market and the history of the Latvian people and their relationship with food. Would recommend this tour, especially for those first time visitors.
Perfect bike tour showing gems a bit outside from the city center.
