Alternative Tour - Riga Our guide, Raymonda, was certainly knowledge about many of the aspects of this capital city, which over the past 8 centuries has been occupied by its varied neighbours, from Swedes to Ukrainians to Poles to Germans to Russians and, last but by no means least, to the Soviets..... Being an alternative tour, Ray wanted to present... More

we would highly recommend Tomms, he made our tour that much better with his great sense of humour. He showed us all the oldest places in Riga having first given us a potted history of Latvia. If you love History then book this tour or just show up, you will be welcome. Beautiful interesting city. We were extra fortunate with... More

I went to the old town tour with Edvards and he was very enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and humourous (and also handsome, if I have to say!). He told us so many things about the city's history and culture that it almost does not feel like a free tour (although I did tip in the end) - definitely recommended for budget travellers.

Joined this tour today with Kaspers as the guide. Full of facts, culture and fun. It lasted for nearly 3 hours due to the size of the group but it didn't felt too long. Optimum timing with a break in between. Highly recommended tour to anyone visiting Riga and wanting to come out of Tourists track.

Eduardo was very good. He has a deep knowledge of his city and country. I enjoyed this tour so much that the next day I did the Free Central Market Walking Tour. Make sure you wear good shoes and have the right clothes, it's a long walking tour and you'll need to be comfortable.

A must attend tour as the guide Casperus is knowledgeable and takes you outside old town to see the interesting places. Really recommended!

I went with my husband to Riga just for 2 days and we are super glad we were able to join this tour, the tour made our short trip better than expected. It was really interesting to know about the Latvia history, visit part of the suburbs and the central market. Kaspars - the guide - was really charismatic, so,... More
