We had an amazing day with Liga, being shown the architecture and learning the history of this beautiful city, followed by a food tour of the Central Market, where we tasted some local food dishes which included some delicious soup, dumplings, and other really tasty local food. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and found Liga a pleasant, friendly, informative guide. We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Riga.

We went on the walking tour this past weekend and enjoyed it very much! We learned about the history of Riga, and went to all the "must-see" places that were previously on my list. Our tour guide was very personable, patient, and friendly, letting us stop for many photos of the sites. Along our tour, we passed a few other walking tours of many people, with the tour guides speaking in microphones..so glad we chose this more intimate tour instead. A side note, this tour was longer than the allotted 4 hours. Block off time after the allotted 4 hours to see everything that was on the list of places that the tour is to visit.

Had a wonderful walking tour with Edite. She was super knowledgeable about Riga and had tons of stories as we walked the city. I thoroughly enjoyed exploring Riga, we did an outside walking tour only as this was unfortunately during the most recent Covid lockdown period.

Outstanding tour by a local expert who has a passion for travelling. Our tour guide took us around Riga, showing the amazing sites, but also provided a very personalised insight by asking about our interests and then showing things that we might like. Not only was the tour extremely informative, it also gave us a chance to get to know some local spots which explored later on by ourselves. One of the best walking tours we had. Highly recommended.

This tour won’t disappoint! We had a fantastic tour guide who was very knowledgeable. She gave us lots of historical and cultural information and was more than happy to answer questions. Even on a cold and windy day she took this into account and we enjoyed stops to look at local produce and warm up a bit. She also offered recommendations of other things to do/ see and places to eat during the tour. Definitely a must when visiting the city!

When my wife and I visit a city for the first time, we like to use a walking tour as a means of learning about specific landmarks, history, culture and way of life. This tour, led by Liga, ranks with the best that we have done. Despite the wet weather, we had the opportunity to see everything available - Freedom monument, Art Nouveau area, Old City, Powder Tower, Cat House, Three Brothers, Swedish Gate, St Peter's and Blackheads House. Liga ensured a comfortable pace, with a break for coffee and a chance to sample black balsam. Finishing at the Central Markets, with the opportunity to try Latvian food such as rye bread w hemp seed oil, smoked pork and cheese, was an enjoyable conclusion to a great experience.

Spent a wonderful 4 hours walking around Riga with Liga who was great. We visited the Art Nouveau district, old town and central market. The history and information we were given was great as were the food tastings in the market. We would thoroughly recommend this tour.
