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!
