So many great places don`t get deserved attention in Riga because they are not located in Old Riga. This tour will solve this misunderstanding. Area of exploration is beyond Old Riga in a part locals refer as "Center"

On our way we will see splendid Art Nouveau architecture, Boulevard circle, gorgeous city parks, important historical monuments, and places of today`s importance.

Big part of our tour will also be interesting stories about people that have put substantial effort in the development of our city. City that has been influenced by Baltic German, Latvian, Russian, Jewish, English and many other people and cultures.

Many of the things in this tour are Hidden Gems that even locals don`t know about.

Join us to have a great time in exploring 19th and 20th century Riga.

Some useful comments:
- Likealocal confirmation email gave a meeting address near the the church, which was a little confusing. You should meet at the front of the church. Check the website of the actual tour company if you are uncertain.
- Don't be nervous about the workload, even having zero experience and arms like twigs, being in a 2 person kayak wasn't any hassle at all, it was light work between two, with no arm aches or anything the next day (but then maybe my girlfriend was doing all the work! haha!)
- You get offered two choices of paddle - twisted or simple. Don't feel bad if you want the simple one, I tried both, but preferred the simple one for sure :)
- Saw some reviews about anti-bug spray - there were no mosquitoes on our trip, but we had sunny days, but perhaps they spring up after rainy weather.
- They provided a wetbag to safely store some items, but it didn't get wet at all inside the boat, apart from the occasional splash if you are really clumsy with your paddle :D
