We combined four tours in total over two days and they were brilliant. Our guide, Artis, was friendly and a font of knowledge. He really knew so very much about the place. I highly recommend the photo tour and the Moscow Town tour. Walking through these places and having their significance explained by someone who understood the history added a... More

I would recommend EAT Riga to anyone who does not just want to know the history of the city but the culture and food as well. We visited with Arthur interesting places and in addition we tried traditional Latvian food. Wonderful opportunity of visiting the local market and try delicacies. After seeing the market we had small picnic with Arthur... More

James was a great tour guide, highly knowledgeable on both the location and the history of Riga. His tour was highly flexible for a large group and all the bikes were well maintained and comfortable. He took 13 men around Riga on the bikes and showed us a good variety of places. All 13 of the people on the tour... More

We have reserved a private tour in Riga, in English and Russian. Our guide Arturs was on time, spoke both languages and was very knowledgeable. Even though we were born in Riga, he showed us the places that we remembered and also the beautiful corners of the city. Great tour, great guide!

We decided to book the art nouveau tour as we know that really to appreciate art, you need to know something more than just that it is pretty. Artus was our guide. It was all we had wished for and more. We walked to many examples of the AN architecture, more than just the one street that is most famous... More

A great tour organised by James and Artis on a weekend visit for my husband and I to Riga. Highly recommend both James and Artis who showed us a different dimension to a standard tour - they did a great job on filling us in with the history that envelops Riga and the country. First day spent walking around the... More

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
