It was a great tour with a great guide (Agnes). We got some advice afterwards about not so touristic restaurants/bars and we discovered some lovely places. Thanks and keep up the good work you are doing there!!

Had a great time on this tour. Learned a good number of abstract facts about the city. I would recommend if you are looking to get off the beaten path for a couple hours.

Great guide (Christus), a lot of information, presented in an easy-going way, not so rusty like some "normal" city tours.

This was a great tour to see the city. I think paired with the old town tour you'd probably have a good understanding of things happening in Riga. My tour guide was Agnes, I think, and she was really easy to talk to and gave great recommendations throughout the tour. She even recommended checking out the Art Academy which ended... More

This was just great. Despite of crappy weather, the guide (Martin) was a great company and really passionate of what he does. This is not reciting a guidebook, but real stories and the only way to understand the city as much as possible in 2.5 hours. Also great advises on places to visit.

Every day at 12 appointment @ st Peter 's church by a local host. For a 2,5h free tour though Riga, lots of local tips, great views and stories.

We went on the 12h tour which explores the city away from the old city. There is a 11h tour for the old city that we didn't know about until we got there, which is a shame. The 12h tour explores less-touristy areas beyond the centre, which is interesting and good to get away from all the busy places. Our... More

I came across the Riga free tour guide,Mārtiņš Enģelis. He appeared to be very knowledgeable guy with a sharp sense of humor. So I followed him along with the other people, who explained about the history and culture a bit. The crux of that walking tour is this, Latvian take their art of building house and stuffs like that quite... More

the free walking tour by Riga is the best way to explore the city with a balanced combination of the old town and the newer parts. our tour guide Agnes knew the city like the back of her hand and told us interesting stories about the cities..she was thoroughly informed about the folk tales and the Latvian culture. I highly... More
