These small group tours are what I absolutely love. Dārta was our guide and her energy and enthusiasm was infectious! I was able to try a new tour all about food and I have to say, I loved this tour more than any other food tour I've done. That's partly because it wasn't just in one city, partly because I felt it was actually local, the producers are just incredible people and I would do it again. I figure that's the best test! I would also highly recommend it. Hopefully, I'll get to Latvia again and take another tour to get more experience in the vast nature that Latvia is known for. Side note: OMG...the ice cream. Even if you only go for the ice cream, it's worth it!

Darta designed a perfect tour for a large group from the Uk. The plan balanced natural landscapes, aquatic activities, comfortable accommodation and some truly excellent food. Darta was incredibly knowledgable and well connected, she remained flexible and adjusted the plan to suit our needs. Highly recommended!!!

Being a local I thought I knew ins and outs of Riga. But... I was wrong. Turns out there's a whole different part of Riga, that's super exciting. Thanks Latvian Element for surprising me!

We asked for a trip that wasn't offered at the date we wanted to go. Darta did everything she could to make it happen. She and another guide were fantastic! They were really natural narrators, had a sense for humour and showed us some nice spots. We're sad that we could only do one trip with these guys due to our tight timeschedule. When in Riga, you should definitely book a trip with the Latvian Element.

We, a couple with a 10 months old baby, had a great time with Darta and Martins on the Grand Oak Tour. First we were a bit hesistant whether that tour would be suitable for our son but it worked out very well. We did a lot of breaks and he enjoyed his nap in a hammock. Darta and Martins are really knowledgable in Latvian culture and explain a lot but there is also time where u enjoy the nature and the silence (sometimes interrupted by some mean mosquitos). Very recommendable!
