We really enjoyed our tour around Old Riga, on a chilly February Saturday. Our guide met us at our hotel, and walked us through the old town. We had some extra time at the end, so she brought us also to the Art Noveau areas.
Highly recommend!

Informative & Friendly!
My husband and I booked a walking tour with Edvards for Sunday morning. He picked us up from the hotel and let us know about the area we were staying in. He continued the tour for about 2 hours, even going a bit beyond Old Town Riga to help us explore the city, while providing a lot of historical and architectural information along the way. Edvards' English was perfect and we could tell he was really interested in all things Riga.
very good
In a short time we get all information about Riga. Thank you Dita.
Great tour
Met our guide Anete at the appointed time and she quickly made us feel at ease. The Old tour is great for learning about the history of Riga but also for getting your bearings.
Her English is good and she can understand and answer questions without problem.
Would thoroughly recommend this tour to visitors of Riga
Informative tour
We were met at our hotel by our guide Anete, who filled our walking tour with detail and information. Very highly recommended. I think we went well over the allotted time and covered a lot of distance. We discovered so much more about Riga than when walking on our own. Thanks Anete, you were first rate.
A great tour!
The tour was great, I'm giving it 5 stars :) We were a big group of students and we were interested in everything what Laura was talking about :) The tour was long (3h) as we wanted to see everything and we're happy we had a great guide, because we weren't bored even for a minute!
