Customer feedback about Guided Tours in Riga

Rating 4.9 based on 58 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.
Soviet Ghosts of Riga Walking Tour
Perfect tour
Our morning didnt start as planned because rain interupted our plans and we thought that all fun of exploring Riga will be lost, Until we met Agrita - our tour guide was excellent, not only she lifted everyones spirit despite the bad weather, she managed to show us whole old town and anawer most insane questions our group had. Really good invesent and very well spent time. Definetely a must tour for everyone who is visiting Riga for a first time ! 10 out of 10!
Riga Medieval Old Town Walking Tour
Interesting walk through Riga
Our guide, Liga, told us a lot about the soviet times. Besides that she also mentioned more about the history of Riga and Letvia. She gave us enough time to take photos and look around at differents stops during the tour. She gave tips for visiting museums and places to eat. Everyone liked the tour. We would recommend it!

I tried to pay the tour several times. It only worked with PayPal. No one responded to the costumer service emails so I had to call.
Soviet Ghosts of Riga Walking Tour
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.
Culture & Food Tasting Experience in Riga

Liga was the best tourist guide ever. She tried to tell us what we were interesstes in. Thank you so much for this great day! We would really recommend the walking tour!
Culture & Food Tasting Experience in Riga
Great walking tour!
We really enjoyed our tour around Old Riga, on a chilly February Saturday. Our guide met us at our hotel, and walked us through the old town. We had some extra time at the end, so she brought us also to the Art Noveau areas.
Highly recommend!

Riga Medieval Old Town Walking Tour
Amazing Hill of Crosses at Sunrise
I cannot recommend this tour enough, firstly Krista was amazing with assisting to arrange this tour at very shorty notice. Although she was not able to take me she did arrange with a colleague to do the tour so I could still go on my chosen day which was very much appreciated. She was great in making sure all the details were arranged with me and was very quick at responding.
The tour does start early but I was picked up on time by Janis, who was nice and friendly and made sure I was ok throughout the 2 hour journey there. Our arrival was well in time for sunrise so Janis was able to give a bit of history about the place and took some photos for me at sunrise with being a solo traveller. I was given plenty of time to explore on my own and was never made to feel rushed to leave.
This place is amazing! It has to be seen in person to truely appreciate it and going for sunrise meant on that day I was the only person there which was incredible.
If you are considering this tour I would say definitely do it and book with Krista you won't be disappointed.

I was three times earlier in Riga at the business trip as always. And always I was walk alone. Actually, first time with tour guide Laura. During the tour we were explore main architectural sights: Old Town, Art. Nouveau district, warehouse area and panorama of Riga. Some of these places were known for me, but with Laura's companion, Riga became just diffrent place than before. First of all - as somebody mentioned - she has a deep knowlege in history and especially in art history. Besides, wide range of knowlede in past and present political situation not only in Latvia, but also in whole Baltic Region. Additionally she was all the time active and answered for our questions through all tour and our group from different countries felt very well. I would like personally - and on behalf of our group - to reccomend Laura and Travel Jam for anybody: groups like ours, for individual tours and for family. Only one was wrong - it was too short (only 3 hours). Thank you Laura once again !!!
Riga Art Nouveau Walking Tour
An Intimate Knowledge of the Kemeri Bog
It's not possible to experience the bog at dawn at Kemeri National Park by yourself, at least in late August. The sun comes up too early and the train arrives too late. Head out with Krista and you can time your arrival so you're already snapping pics in the first brightness, when the mist is still thick and the silence impenetrable.

Krista and I had the entire bog to ourselves at such an early hour. It was terrific to travel in such comfort, with Krista picking me up in her car and a stop for a light breakfast.

Krista's enthusiasm and respect for the bog and her experience in knowing it so intimately are impressive. She obviously enjoys sharing such a magical part of her country, expanding the tour to include a walk through the tall reeds, with stops at Soviet sanatoriums and the magnificent Dubulti station.

With deep appreciation to Krista for her generosity and ensuring such fine memories of Latvia's natural wonders.

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.

I was perfectly happy with the tour. My guide Dita was a very friendly and very competent person. She guided me through the different quarters of the city with Art Nouveau buildings explaining the different styles that emerged in Riga as part of Art Nouveau. She also explained a lot about history and culture of Riga which helped me to get a notion of the city and its people. After the tour I walked through the town with a fresh look on its architecture and I felt I was able to see things that I would not have been able to see without the tour. I would highly recommend the tour to anyone who is interested in Art Nouveau in Riga. If I had to take the decision again on whether or not to book the tour, I would definitely book again.

On a business venue in Riga , we were offered by the organisation a guided tour of the city by TRAVEL JAM and Laura was guiding our group .
I had been several times to Riga in the past but never had a chance to see more than conference centers, hotel rooms and airport lounge.
This 3 hours tour gave us the highlights of the city and Laura was a most interesting , articulate, smart and proactive hostess opening doors for us to a rich heritage and thrilling history of the city .
When I thought guided tours was only for tourists , TRAVEL JAM proved I was wrong and I nearly regretted that the tour was only 3 hours .. There was so much more I would have wanted to discover in the Wake of Laura ... I keep that for next time !
Riga Art Nouveau Walking Tour
Absolutely perfect way to get to know Riga
This was a really great way to see a bit of Riga before going exploring on your own, and the guide, Laura, was amazing. She contacted us before the tour to make sure we knew where to meet her and offered to collect us from the hotel. When we met her, she was very friendly and chatty, and knowledgable!! She took us on a lovely walk around the old town of Riga where she had picked interesting spots to stop and give us loads of info about Riga as a whole and what we were looking at also. Inbetween the stops there was constant chat about any number of topics! Overall it was a really lovely way to get to know Riga!
Orientation Tour of 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

I was very lucky to have a very nice 2 hour tour of Riga Old Town with Laura. She gave me a very well though out "live documentary" on the history of Riga. Walking around by yourself, you can of course appreciate the beauty of the buildigns. But to have someone like Laura telling you the stories behind them, pointing out all the details, answering all your questions, and being very good company while doing that, was just amazing! The time flew by. I wished I didn't have a plane to catch.

I can very warmly recommend this tour for everyone!
Riga Medieval Old Town Walking Tour
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.
