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 walking tour!
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!
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
Very good!
Perfect tour
Our morning didnt start as planned because rain interupted our plans and we thought that all fun of exploring Riga will be lost, Until we met Agrita - our tour guide was excellent, not only she lifted everyones spirit despite the bad weather, she managed to show us whole old town and anawer most insane questions our group had. Really good invesent and very well spent time. Definetely a must tour for everyone who is visiting Riga for a first time ! 10 out of 10!
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!
Pure five stars guided tour of central Riga.
My wife and two friends agreed that the tour was first class. Our guide (Laura) was excellent, her knowledge and friendly manner made the tour informative and fun. We fully recommend the tour and give it a 5 star rating.
I'd give the tour a 4 out of 5 stars.
My trip to Riga would not have been the same without Edgars and Laura. These guys offer wonderful tours around the city, but they do so much more than that. They shared with me their best spots to taste/see/hear Latvia in the most authentic way. Priceless!
I was very lucky to have a very nice 2 hour tour of Riga Old Town with Laura. She gave me a very well though out "live documentary" on the history of Riga. Walking around by yourself, you can of course appreciate the beauty of the buildigns. But to have someone like Laura telling you the stories behind them, pointing out all the details, answering all your questions, and being very good company while doing that, was just amazing! The time flew by. I wished I didn't have a plane to catch.

I can very warmly recommend this tour for everyone!
