This tour is guided by a local that shows you places and buildings that refer to the dark periods of war and sovjetregime in which Latvians suffered. It's a part of history of Riga which was crucial for its present place in the world. We really recommand it. The Sovjectbuffet is not included in the price, instead you got very good advice about local restaurants.
It was good to experience the outskirts of Riga and have a bit of history of the country. Our driver picked us up on the dot from our hotel and offered to give us a short ride around the city (since we arrived the night before and were not able to have a city tour yet prior to this out of the city tour) and we instantly agreed.
It was good to see things from a different and closer perspective with the walking tour. It was a lot of walking so I wouldn't recommend it for people that aren't up for that but if you don't mind the walk it's a great way to take in the information and see things close up.
Kristaps was very knowledgeable and kept a good pace. We were able to cover a lot of ground (old town, the art noveau district and some other areas) in 2 hrs. Would highly recommended and well worth the money.
Linda was extremely knowledgeable, personable and flexible. We saw a lot of Riga and learned about Latvia—its culture and people. It was a wonderful day!
