We are so glad we took this tour because our charming and knowledgeable guide, Maria, told us the history and stories that allowed us to more fully appreciate Riga's Old Town. The Old Town is charming, beautiful and very easy to walk through. This tour made our visit more enjoyable and we highly recommend it to anyone visiting Riga. Additionally, Maria told us about Riga's Art Nouveau architectural history and, had we know about that beforehand, we would've booked a tour with her to see that district.

We absolutely lucked-out with a terrific guide Marija who was so passionate about her city, she filled you with her enthusiasm and thus you just loved the city. She had terrific historical background information, knew her history and led us around parts of the city we never would have known about had we not signed up for this tour. Furthermore, she advised us on additional things to see/do during our stay for which we will be forever thankful. It made our visit to Riga, and we would happily suggest anyone visiting take a walking tour of the old town. It absolutely brings it to life!
