    The Riga Canal Boat tour on a sunny fall day is the most relaxing way to soak in Riga’s sites from the water...the canal and the Daugava River. The canal circles Riga’s magnificent Old Town and the view of the city from the river on a crisp fall day is worth every Euro. You

    We had nice weather, sunny but a bit cool for this time of year. The views were quite nice. It was a full boat so seating was limited; we were lucky to have arrived early and picked a spot up front next to the skipper. I had no luck connecting to the on-board audio guide but

    Thank you for your feedback! After a hot summer unexpectedly early cool, rainy and windy autumn has come. That's why many people want to enjoy sunny days. But the good news is that we also work during the rain, and even then the city has a special charm worth enjoying. We also offer blankets to make your ride more comfortable. If there is a need you can always ask the captain before the tour about the solution and we will help you as much as possible. Have a great vacation next summer!

    A nice tour to look at nearly all relevant sightseeing objects in about an hour in Riga by boat. The guide was friendly.

    The first activity we did in Riga is this fantastic canal boat tour that lasted over one and half hours. Pick up point is from a pier at Bastion Hill just 100 mt from iconic Freedom Monument. Traveling in an historical art nouveau style boat itself is a memorable experience.

    Thanks for the great feedback! We are glad that you liked the boat tour, enjoyed every aspect of it - the boat, the audio guide, and off course our beautiful city. And yes, we also have booklets on the boats where we also put information about the sights you see during the boat tour. Wish to discover many more new places in the future!​
