I really enjoyed the free walking tour in Riga our tour guide was very kind and funny (sorry forgot his name). He showed us the old town for a little bit but mainly focussed on other sides of the city. I really liked that. But there is also room for some improvement: he could speak a little slower, I could...

Our guide Martin had nice stories and facts about Riga. It was easy to follow him and hearing was not a problem despite the big group.

After spending my first few days wandering around the old and new city centers, trying a bit of Latvian food and beer, and talking to a few locals, I got curious enough to need a good guide who would supplement for my first impressions with rich past and current stories of the city. It was then I joined the tour... More

Before joining this tour, I've checked reviews on TripAdvisor, so I knew it would not be a "classic" tour which leads you to famous place and anywhere on tourguide book. So I will say to those who wants to join this free trip: it's not a common tour with most famous places. This tour mainly focuses on local attractions; some... More

Very good way to make friendships and the guide was very clear and explained us everything most important from Riga related to its histories. I recommend each one who comes to visit riga to do this tour.

We had a great time walking around Riga and getting to know the city from a slightly different angle than your typical sight seeing tour. The guide was very informative and was always minding to involve everyone in the group. The group was very mixed from all kinds of countries. Also a good way to get to know some people.... More

The 2 and a half hour tour was fantastic for succinctly showing us the neighbourhoods surrounding the old town. It is easy to walk explore the old town yourself but we did not know where to walk beyond that so this tour was perfect. Our tour guide gave us great tips for the rest of our stay, including many things... More

It's the tour for people who are fed up with walking around Old Town, and who want to get some more of Riga. Great people, cool stories - 100% worth going!
