Customer feedback about Sightseeing Tours in Riga

Rating 4.8 based on 128 reviews

Excellent coverage of a difficult subject.
I booked this tour as I wanted to find out more about the reality of living in a Soviet satellite state and it was everything I had hoped for.

Lisa is an excellent guide and had clear memories of living through the transition to independence in the early 1990s, as well as family anecdotes from the ww2 period which brought home the horrors of living through wartime occupations.

As this was a private tour we could indulge ourselves in additional discussions about other Riga issues, so covered many other interesting areas like the Orthodox Cathedral and the new State Library, finishing up at the memorial to those who were deported to Siberia during the Russian occupation in the 1940s.

Highly recommended, if this is a subject that interests you.

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!
Riga Retro & Vintage Shopping Tour
If you like Second Hand & Vintage, you just need this tour!
If you are new in Riga and want to know how to get second hand & vintage, this is for sure the guided tour you are after! You will visit places I am sure you had not found by yourself and you also get the picture of what Riga can offer in the second hand industri. The guide was super and had well knowledge both about the indisutri & about the city history. I enjoyed myself, learnt a lot about Riga and of course about how to get the good vintage and second hand. Thank you!
Riga Retro & Vintage Shopping Tour
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!
Riga Medieval Old Town Walking Tour
great time!
we were taken around by Liga. She was fantastic. We were a hen party of 11 and Liga was so thoughtful to work some anecdotes on Latvian wedding traditions and even had a small gift for the bride.

The tour should have finished at two but it ran over a little and Liga was really patient and stayed with us.

The actual content of the tour was fascinating and we learnt a lot about architecture and sime great stories from the history of Riga.
Culture & Food Tasting Experience in Riga
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.
Latvian Food Tasting Tour at Riga Central Market

Latvian Food Tasting Tour at Riga Central Market
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!
Riga Medieval Old Town Walking Tour
Fantastic!
We were very pleased with our tour guide and his vast knoweledge of subject. Despite the fact we were unrealisticly hangoverish we could enjoy every bit of tour and we recommend it. 5/5. Cypriot- Latgalian crew.

Fantastic wY to see Riga
Agnes our guide was fantastic. It was great to see the real Riga outside of old town. If we'd had more time in Riga we'd have also done the food tour of the markets.
Alternative Riga Walking Tour
Really nice, off the beaten track tour
Really nice, off the beaten track tour that covers some alternative routes of the recent history of Riga.
Totally recommended :)

Being a total foodie myself, I googled "food" and "Riga", when I was going to the latvian capital for a meeting. EAT Riga turned up, sounded great - and I booked a tour to the Central Market for me and my collegue.
Our guide was Marcus, an australian who by now has been living seven years in Riga, and it was great to be able to ask all sorts of questions....I mean, some questions like "can I drink the tapwater?", "are people very religious in Latvia?" or "what on eath is THAT?!!" might be offensive to a proud homie, but maybe not so to a foreigner.
So Marcus told us about everyday life, food, midsummerparties, christmas, gardening, tapwater etc. It was GREAT.
We walked through three of the big halls at the Central Market, taking photos, asking stupid questions, listening to the tale about the history of the place, tasting, looking, smelling. Obviuosly Marcus' latvian was good enough to make the stallowners smile - and sufficient to buy little bits and pieces. I was impressed.
We ended the tour by the river, where we had lunch - two kinds of meat, two kinds of cheese, two kinds of bread and pickled vegetables. And on our way home, Marcus bought us a sweet treat made of cottagecheese and chocolate.
25 euro per person for a tour like this (two and a half hour approx.) is a bargain.
Latvian Food Tasting Tour at Riga Central Market
The tour is highly recommended!
The tour starting point was easy to find and once we got there we were met by our tour guide - Agnes.

It was a short stroll to the impressive market halls.
Agnes showed us round them all and pointed out things that we would never have noticed on our own.
From the fresh fruit and veg, to the dairy products, meat market and the fish market.
All the local specialities were pointed out and explained to us.
We then had a small beer tasting with locally brewed beers. It was so good we had to buy some more to drink. The ginger and mint beer was very tasty.
Then it was over to the Creative Quarter to a small cafe where some local delicacies were waiting for us to try - a rye bread drink, some pastries, various types of sausage, some pickles, and a special type of butter. Just enough to give us a taste of Latvia.
Agnes was a brilliant guide. She didn't mind answering all our questions and we enjoyed listening to her describing life in Riga.
After we sadly said goodbye to Agnes we headed back into the market, armed with all our knowledge, to make some purchases.

The tour is highly recommended. A big Thank You to Agnes our brilliant tour guide - Paldies !!

Myself and a friend did the walking tour of Riga, that included Vintage shopping :) It was a very cold day, and had been snowing on previous days. Although Riga is beautiful in Winter, it is freezing. We were lucky enough to have James as our guide, just moments before the birth of his son, and he made sure that we didn't get frostbite, ducking into markets, cafes and shops along the way.

This tour gave us a great overview of some of Riga's sights and history, but more importantly vintage shopping. If it wasn't for this tour we probably wouldn't have found these little treasures, as we would have stuck to the old town where we were staying. James was fluent in Latvian and so helped in the translation of costs and material used for items of interest. Our favourite store where we made our purchases was a real find and we would have easily walked past as there was no signage out front. Vintage leather boots at 6 Lats, what a steal!!!!

We also stopped along the way for warm tea at some trendy little bars.

I was three times earlier in Riga at the business trip as always. And always I was walk alone. Actually, first time with tour guide Laura. During the tour we were explore main architectural sights: Old Town, Art. Nouveau district, warehouse area and panorama of Riga. Some of these places were known for me, but with Laura's companion, Riga became just diffrent place than before. First of all - as somebody mentioned - she has a deep knowlege in history and especially in art history. Besides, wide range of knowlede in past and present political situation not only in Latvia, but also in whole Baltic Region. Additionally she was all the time active and answered for our questions through all tour and our group from different countries felt very well. I would like personally - and on behalf of our group - to reccomend Laura and Travel Jam for anybody: groups like ours, for individual tours and for family. Only one was wrong - it was too short (only 3 hours). Thank you Laura once again !!!
Riga Art Nouveau Walking Tour
Nice day out to Sigulda with Agrita
We had pre-booked this tour from Traveljam, thinking the programme looked interesting. Agrita turned out to be a very friendly and knowledgeable guide. She told us many interesting things, but also knew when not to talk (which is good!). Her minivan was comfortable and her driving skills OK.We visited the bobsleigh track and were lucky enough to see some training activity. On to the Gutman cave, which is situated in some charming gardens. Next was Turaida, where we visited most of the historic buildinsg on the estate, saw a lot of the statues on Folk Song Hill and then onto the castle (ruins). All the while accompanied by Agrita's stories, in which you could hear the love for her country and its traditions. Lastly she accompanied us for a late lunch with local dishes. She was very attentive to the fact that one of our group could not walk long distances. And her sense of humour matches ours. All in all a very nice day out (we were lucky with the weather too).
