this was a great fun tour, our guide martin knew lots of facts about Riga and spoke great English he showed us the alternative Riga. Would recommend this tour for anyone visiting Riga. Tour lasted about 2 hrs 20mins and I could easily have listened for a lot longer. Great as this is free just look for the yellow suitcase... More

Great Tour, i was hoping we will get to see more then just the old town and that's exactly what happened. Interesting stories about history of the town and just getting ideas about how and where to explore more after the tour. Our guide Martin, well he has a personality, fun guy on his own way and he almost forces... More

The tour is very nice, but you should know that this tour doesn't cover some most touristic places in the Old Town. It's supposed that those places are for traveler to visit themselves or during some other tours, fortunately, there are thousands of other guides offering tours thoughout the Old Town. This tour is more about the places outside the... More

I really enjoyed this tour of Riga as it got me out of old town and into the adjacent areas of the city. Our guide was correct in saying that after a few hours in Old Town, you've seen it all and it can get a bit boring so it was nice to escape the old town region and explore... More

I took the tour today with Chris (or is that Kris in this part of the world?). Anyway, his English is excellent and so is his enthusiasm for the tour and that to me made the tour all the more enjoyable, as some of these tours in other cities can feel laboured by guides having a much poorer grasp of...

Great choice of attractions. Our guide was very cool! The places he showed us and the stories he said were really interesting! Not the traditional walk around the city.

Please note that there are other tourist guides masquerading as the free tour guide who circulate around St Peters Church at the advertised meeting times, so look for the yellow suitcase that the certified tour guides identify themselves with and don't be taken in with other offers! The certified free tour is unique and original. It lasts around 2.5 hours... More

Very nice experience the guide was polite knowledgable and political/religion neutral. It is definitely worth to join in the trip as you will be able to see Riga from a different perspective.
