Customer feedback about Cultural & History Tours in Riga

Rating 5.0 based on 8 reviews

Informative Tour
The full tour around Riga was very informative on the historical, cultural and modern life of the city and of Latvia in general. Aurels is very knowledgeable and is passionate about sharing with others. He was very professional, friendly and easy to communicate with. He asked me beforehand whether there were any specific places that I wanted to visit. This tour was by car and therefore is especially recommendable to those who may not be able to do a lengthy walking tour. I recommend Aurels. You won’t be disappointed.

A very nice tour of Riga
I took the tour during my layover in Riga and I was very happy about it. I have a difficulty when walking, so this was just the perfect way of seeing the town in the limited time frame I had.
Very informative and friendly and it was easily possible to adjust the beginning of the tour.
Would highly recommend!

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

Fabulous Riga!
Our tour guide Alvils Purics was prompt and very welcoming. His knowledge and driving were excellent. We really enjoyed our tour as he made it very interesting and we shared a few jokes along the way. The duration was ideal and we never felt rushed at any point, we were able to stop and take photos whenever we wished.

We would thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Riga.
