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
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

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!
