Riga City Tour Excursion Reviews

Appreciate the beauty of the city as you experience Rātslaukums Square, the contemporary architecture of Riga, and the panoramic view of the Old Town from the left bank of River Daugava.

Charming Riga Pearl of the Baltic Started on Bus with nice tour of city. A good overview. Started walking tour. Same problem as other NCL tours. 40 people and no voice enhancement product. Tour guide did her best to have her voice hear by all but hard to hear. Had a good walk through old town. After our tour, we stayed in town and went to the Central Market which is the local market where locals shop. It was huge with beautiful fruit, bakery areas, and food, clothing etc. It was interesting. We love local markets. Read Less

An equally qualified university professor presented her graduate level course syllabus in Latvian history and culture. A lot of information in a short amount of time. Still, we were impressed.

We were a group of 15. Santa was not available for our tour and she recommended Ilze Krievane. Ilze was wonderful. She had a great command of English, was interesting and friendly with our group. Ilze took us on our tour and made sure to include us in what sights to see, where to eat and shop. Since we were on a cruise excursion, Santa arranged transportation to/from the ship. It was a perfect day for our group. There was great communication with Santa in arranging the tour. Highly recommend. Read Less

Alla Tours provided an excellent tour guide. Small group. We could move about quickly since we were in a van, rather than a big bus. I would recommend taking a tour in Riga since the size of the cruise ship necessitated docking at the industrial port which was about 30 min from the town. Shuttle service from the ship into the town cost extra! Read Less

If you are an architecture buff this is the city for you. The buildings are fascinating and one can spend so much time just looking at all the details of decoration.
