Fantastic wY to see Riga
Agnes our guide was fantastic. It was great to see the real Riga outside of old town. If we'd had more time in Riga we'd have also done the food tour of the markets.

Great experience!
I attended a private Tour with my girlfriend, and we loved it! You get to see the rather big central market, learn about the cultural and historical background, and taste a variety of latvian foods

Riga inside out
After exploring the old town myself, this alternative walking tour was great. My very enthousiastic guide Eva not only gave me information about the history of the city, but also told me much about the local cultural habits. The spots we visited we're all really worth visiting.

At the end of the tour she was also keen on telling me a about a very nice and affordable place to have dinner. This place was also a bit hidden but not far away from the old town and had a very nice atmosphere with a lot of local people.
Highly recommended
Wonderful guide with a lot of knowledge and stories about Riga.
We had a lot of fun during this tour.
Highly recommended
Tasting Tour as it should be
Our guide Markus didn't show us not only the halls of Riga's Central Market, but let us know much of Letvian cooking and eating today.
At the end of the tour we tasted some of the very special latvians pickels, cheese, bread and drinking (non-alcoholic). Every question was welcomed and as we were only 4 guests on this tour it was realy personal and we enjoyed it very much.
