Agnese of E.A.T. Riga was an excellent guide, and gave us such a wonderful well-paced walking tour. She was personable and knowledgeable, and open to our questions, We couldn't have had a better introduction to Riga's Old Town! I highly recommend this company. They were great to deal with before our arrival, answering emails promptly and providing the information we needed.

Description

Get an alternative view of the most touristy parts of Riga. Our tour of the historical Old Town focuses not on dates, numbers and lists, but on the stories – funny, sad and gruesome – that tell the tale of how Riga grew.

We’ll show you how the city has changed from its medieval beginning to today’s mix of Soviet and modern architecture, and share what we think the future holds.

Led by a funny, entertaining and officially licensed guide, this is a tour of Riga's heart that you'll remember long after you leave.

Agnes was the perfect guide!
Our guide instantly understood the interests of our group - we didn't only go to shops, but saw bits of Riga we wouldn't have discovered on our own. Agnes has very good history knowledge, but she doesn't overkill you with information. Also, she had a very good energy, sense of humor and excellent English, so we thoroughly enjoyed our 3hr walking tour and didn't notice the time pass so fast! She also suggested us a perfect lunch place (Galerija Istaba) and conveniently ended our tour nearby. All in all, 10 out 10 experience, thank you Agnes!
Great tour
We were a party of 4, first time in Riga, and found the tour to be very enjoyable. Agnes had a wealth of knowledge and a great sense of humour. We found the tour to be interesting and were glad we took part. It was good to hear all the history behind the Central Market and the history of the Latvian people and their relationship with food. Would recommend this tour, especially for those first time visitors.
Perfect bike tour showing gems a bit outside from the city center.
