Rihards and Maija provided an excellent day trip south of Riga. Mezotne Palace has a nice river side setting while Rundale is a fantastic palace reminding us of the Russian influence on the nobility. Bauska castle was closed but we went to the Automobile Musuem which was a great find. An eclectic collection that was unexpected. The museum guide had... More

We were a group of 4 college students studying abroad (Feb. 2014) looking to get a taste for under the radar Eastern Europe. Couldn't have asked for more! Taken by Discover Latvia owner (Rihards, only about 26 yrs old but extremely professional) from our hotel in Riga to Sigulda, a resort village about 40 minutes from downtown. Spent the day... More

Discover Latvia tours were fantastic Rihards picked us up from the hotel and we travelled for an hour to Sigulder to the bobsleigh track. Rihards has excellent knowledge of the countryside and is passionate about it which really shows. Once we arrived at the track he showed us the skeleton and Luge tracks before our bobsleigh ride. The ride was... More

We had an excellent exciting day husky sledding. We were picked up from a Riga hotel, having found it very easy to book. The dogs were beautiful and tour incredible. A true once in a lifetime experience!

We were met at or hotel by Rihards who took us on a bus about 15 miles top the suburbs of Riga. We had a walk around & were shown many interesting things about Latvia under Soviet rule. This is were people still live. We then went for a traditional Russian meal & after Rihards took back to the hotel... More

This was the most amazing afternoon, you are collected by the knowledgable Rihards and driven through the countryside to a beautiful forest. After a short tutorial on how to control the sleds you are then off on your own!!! The whole experience was just brilliant, although it helps if it snows! Finished off with a cup of mulled wine and... More

On the 14th September 2014, my wife, our 20 month old baby and I did a day trip from Riga with Rihards from Discover Latvia Tours. We traveled to Kandava, Kuldiga and then back along the Baltic coast and on to Riga. What a great day we had! Rihards is passionate about his country and his job, and this definitely... More

Me and my wife attended great private tour 'Hansa union city Cēsis and Switzerland of Vidzeme- Sigulda' and had really great time with our tour guide Rihards. The tour was really good organised, so we recommend the tour to anyone, who would like discover the great history of Latvia and see its beautiful countryside.

I went on the Sigulda tour and it was everything I expected and more. Rihards was an excellent, thoughtful guide with a great deal of knowledge about Latvia - its people and history. We visited some very interesting sites and I had the chance to see some of the amazing Latvian countryside. The aerial tram over the Gauja river was... More

My husband and I were lucky enough to be the only people on our tour to Sigulda and had a most enjoyable and informative day with Rihards. We visited all the places listed on the itinerary, which were most interesting. But we also learnt a lot about Latvia, a country of which we have little knowledge. Our lunch stop was... More
