We had a cruise day to fill in Tiga and booked this tour to give us an insight into Riga. I had excellent correspondence with James right up until the day before the tour then it all went downhill. We arrived at the office as agreed - the guy in attendance didn't seem to know what to do with us.... More

We are very sorry for your experience. It does appear that the guide in question may have been the same that was mentioned in a previous review and as stated they are no longer running walking tours for us. However we do ask you to get in touch with us and say which tour you conducted and if you recall... More

My wife and I spent 2 1/2 hours meandering of old town Riga on this tour. The museum of occupation,a burned down synagogue and the a hotel rigged by the KGB were pointed out but only the remains of the synagogue was visited. The next morning my wife and I found out about the Holocaust Museum and went to visit... More

We did a day trip to Jurmala beach with rented bikes on our own. The guy at EAT was helpful and showed us a map where to go. It was very easy to find to the beach. I can't give 5 stars because the bikes were not what I expected after all the great reviews. Only two gears really worked,... More

Thanks for the message. We tell all clients, check the bikes before you ride, especially off to Jurmala! and if you are not happy with the bike we switch them. We have many bikes and in the summer yes some gears start to slip. These things can be adjusted of course if we know about them. I advise any future... More

We were only two on our tour, so we got a mix of different things. The guide was cool, a great storyteller and very knowledgeable in general. A great little trip!

James took me on a tour of Riga art nouveau architecture that I will not soon forget. I skipped a day with the tour group that took me to Latvia and I was not sorry. If time and energy had allowed, I could have done a second Art Nouveau tour the next day. There is certainly plenty to see. Who... More

We spent several hours with James walking around Riga. He came to our apartment to collect us and then we set off through the Central Market into the old town. We saw so many things that you would not know were there by yourself - all the little alleys and lanes to discover something new and different. Lots of great... More

It was a real pleasure to have combination tour of Riga's history and food with James. We took 1,5 hour walk with James in old town and he is absolutely great! Knew all the secret pathways and facinating stories of the city. I have been many guided tours and some of those have been boring and too full of numbers... More

We- 13 old farts- contacted James in advance of our Riga weekend, and he was absolutely first class. Arranged transport from the airport, and then a Beer & Black Balsam tour with the legendary Arturs, who knows all the bars and was a mine of information. Then, for a select few of us, a Sunday afternoon cycle tour with Artis-... More

We used Eat Riga to get the more Latvian view and they certainly succeeded, in fact I don't think there's anything they couldn't sort out for you. 9 of us went sailing on the Baltic and it was amazing and so well organised. Would definitely use them again and I highly recommend them!

We - a group of 8 girls visiting Riga - were so happy we booked that tour with James. We were satisfied to be one of the few tourists in Riga that saw much more than the pedestrianised and scenic old town. We choosed the tour in Moscow district and I personnaly had the feeling that we took a walk... More
