Our guide Agrita was lovely to talk to. Not only did we learn a lot about the beautiful buildings on our tour but also a lot about the older buildings on our way to the main area. Agrita was happy to tell us about the best places to eat, best prices for beer and the history of Latvia. Would thoroughly recommend this tour: if you only have time to do one thing in Riga do this!

We were very happy with the tour. Agita combined both interiors and exteriors in her tour and mixed both facts with interesting myths about local art nouveau. The tour company replied quickly to our request and contacted us the day before to agree details of the tour. It all felt very professional. The online payment security could be improved.
