We made advance reservations for a private tour of Riga with James and his staff while we were on a shore excursion from a Costa Cruise to the Baltic areas. Our ship had transfers which took us right to the city center and the general meeting point. Marcus was prompt on his arrival and arranged for our party of five... More

We were a mere three people who had a bespoke tour with James. He met us at our hotel and immediately plunged us into the hidden parts of Riga that James had himself delighted in discovering when he first settled in Riga. The food markets were amazing, and the back streets with complicated histories, the social fabric and cultural tidbits... More

We booked the market tour in Riga in late July 2014. We were met at our cruise ship by Marcus, who surprised and delighted us when we realized he had an Australian accent. He has been living in Riga for many years and was able to share many tidbits of history and local lore as we walked to the central... More

I was the only one on the tour, so I had my guide to myself! I got a good bike, and we spent the next hours getting from Riga out to the coast. The very knowledgeable young man who guided me told me a lot of interesting stuff about Riga and Latvia, and we discussed everything from middle ages-history to... More

As a family of 3, we took the art nouveau tour which was to last 2.5 hrs. for 50€. Our guide was nice and gave us some basic information about the buildings and the style while showing us a variety of buildings both in the center and in the art nouveau district. To be fair, he fit us in after... More

8 of us, all adults, had a day to spend in Riga. So, we contacted E.A.T. to take their bike tour of the city. We definitely chose the right company. Artis was our guide and he went over and above the time we had allotted for the tour. And, he took us to locations that we asked about so it... More

We were lucky enough to tag along on a cycling tour to the Jurmala Sea Resort area. Our guide James is a fantastic fountain of knowledge! Our group of 5 were treated to a scenic ride through the backstreets and countryside of Latvia with a swim in the Baltic Sea and an authentic Latvian lunch (hint: whatever you do don't... More

We were travelling as a family group and wanted to avoid the irritating 'mass' tours where you get herded around the city like sheep. I emailed James @ EAT Riga and he was delightful at fitting in with our timing. He then took the 4 of us on a walking tour of the Old City one day, and the Art... More

We booked a guided tour of the Art Nouveau district with knowledgeable guide James who told us all there is to know about the district, and while walking about we also got an insight into life in Latvia. James was very receptive to our demands, and also showed us to some true gems for vintage lovers like us! I highly... More

We wanted to discover the less touristic areas of Riga and thanks to our tour guide James we really experienced another side of the city. He showed us places where we had never ended up on our own and provided us interesting background information. As James knows the city very well he can easily react to the groups' preferences and...
