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).

I was the only one on the tour, so I had my guide to myself! I got a good bike, and we spent the next hours getting from Riga out to the coast. The very knowledgeable young man who guided me told me a lot of interesting stuff about Riga and Latvia, and we discussed everything from middle ages-history to the cold war, to what kind of trees we could see to animals to literature, language and movies. Needless to say, I found it to be well worth the 45 euros that it cost.
When we came to Jurmala we ate food at a restaurant serving traditional dishes and beer. Then, came the thunderstorm and rainfall of the decade! So we took the train back! I can recommend this company!
Jūrmala Beach Bike Tour from Riga
Our excursion in Riga was very, very good. For the guide, Andra, we give 11/10. Her English was very understanding, because normally we speak Dutch. She gave us a very objective summary of the Latvija history and on all our questions we became a answer. As we were for a short stay in Riga with the excursion we have a notion of the country too. Thanks for the organisation.

One remark out of the trip. The misunderstanding at the start (we were in Hotel Blu Radison Latvija and the car was at Elisabeth hotel), but with the help of Laura (in Spain) and the reception of our hotel in 3 minutes we had a solution.

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
The best tour from my time in Latvia
If you are looking for a break from the city and a chance to see the real side of Latvia I would highly recommend this tour. Krista is a gem with abundant knowledge of the local area, very friendly and passionate about her job.

The national park is beautiful with great opportunities for photos of the local wildlife and extended views of the whole park. The tour is relaxed and Krista is flexible with time and changed days for me so we could go when it wasn't raining. ( Very thankful )

All in all, definitely worth your time if you're visiting Riga on your travels

We were lucky enough to tag along on a cycling tour to the Jurmala Sea Resort area. Our guide James is a fantastic fountain of knowledge! Our group of 5 were treated to a scenic ride through the backstreets and countryside of Latvia with a swim in the Baltic Sea and an authentic Latvian lunch (hint: whatever you do don't order the 'Herring in a Fur Coat'!).

This was a fantastic experience, and a great way to see Riga/Latvia. Thanks James!

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
Fantastic way to explore the forests and beaches of Jurmala
We took a relaxed and beautiful ride out of Riga and into the lovely pine forests. Our guide beguiled us with fascinating stories of modern day life in Latvia as well its tempestuous past. We spent some time on the beach drinking local beer and then went to the pedestrian street to eat lunch where the locals ate. A great way to see and experience more of Latvian life. Highly recommend the tour.

Amazing views!
Fantastic tour, picked up right from our home to Kemeri. Krista is such a happy, fun guide - we both had a blast. Unbelievable to see the park at sunrise - the early wake up is worth it!

Rundale Palace Half-Day Tour from Riga
A nice day in a autumn forest
We started in the old city center. Quickly we went to the Island of Ķīpsala. Here we had a nice view of the old city. The guide explained something about the buildings that we could see from the vieuw point.
After a short round on Ķīpsala and seeing some nice restored buildings.
Than we started our journey to Jūrmala. It was a long but fun ride. Nice rouds throu the forrest.
Jūrmala has very nice buildings, only al the new appartmentbuildings aren't very nice the old houses are very nice.
If you aren't sporty the way back to Riga center is a hard task. So we went by train. This wasen't very expensive.
We had a nice day and learnt some nice things about Riga and Jūrmala.

Great tour and guide Didzis
Really enjoyed this tour. Great way to see the countryside around Riga. The guide was very laid back and interesting - learnt lots about Latvia from him. We had a nice in lunch when we arrived in Jurmala. We cycled there and back but there was the option of taking the train back. The tour was great but if you'd like feedback on how to make it even better, I'd suggest having short stops along the way at points of interest to tell interesting stories as only the person cycling beside the guide can hear what is being said. Also incorporate some tourist attractions in to the tour if possible.
