Our guide Inga was just great and gave us a private tour through the snowy old town of Riga. In the cold, she let us warm up with a free sample of the traditional Riga Black Balsam. It was great to get tips from her on things to do in the city that we would not have discovered during our short stay.

Hello, our city tour through Riga was great. However, she had some teething problems. There was no one at the meeting point communicated to us. When we called the phone number that was given to us, we got to Riga Tours. However, our tour was booked with Around Latvia, from whom we had no contact details. Riga Tours tried very hard and provided us with these contact details. The actual organizer was able to start a replacement tour within about half an hour late, which, as I said, was great.
