The canal and river cruise is more interesting than the plain river cruise you can book. Be aware that this cruise does not have a commentary although the driver was happy to answer our questions.
It's not luxury but for an hour it was comfortable enough and at 12euros felt reasonable value.

Your review shows that you did not use Riga by Canal boat tour offer. Our offer includes an audio guide service, an old ship or specially designed and there is also a price differens. But you are right that the canal and river ride is better than the plain river ride, because then you can also see the city of Riga from the center, see the hasty city while enjoying a quiet boat ride. Have great trips to other world cities!

I nice relaxing way to see the different view of Riga. I wish that boat captain had interaction with the people on the boat. Ours was on his cell phone the whole ride. The better view is from the side that you enter the boat or sit in the far back in order to get good pictures.

My whole group enjoyed the ride and we got some good pictures.

Thank you for choosing our boat trip and thank you for your feedback! To take better photos of Riga city, it is best to sit in a place where there is no side or back glass to avoid glare or deterioration of photo quality. Sitting here you can also enjoy wind and wave splashes while going by boat in the Daugava river if the weather is not quite calm. Hope to see you soon again in Latvia!

After lunch at the Funny Fox I wanted to sit and relax away from the crowds.
A stroll in the park brought me to the canal and the small river boats. A single cost 18euros which I thought expensive.( groups get cheaper rates I believe). It was a pleasant way to spend an hour and see parts of the city I would otherwise have missed.

Not worth 18 Euros each - sat in the front of boat connected to boat WiFi but unable to open audio tour on safari - annoying to say the least - so a quiet sight seeing tour without information about the sights - took 50 minutes -

Thank you for your time to write the review! We're sorry to hear that there was no opportunity to listen to the audio guide. We invite everyone to be an active customer and if there's an issue with audio guide, contact the ship's captain, we will try to find another solution right away. We still hope that your stay in Riga was interesting.
