    Even though I was born and have lived in Riga most of my life, this tour was informative and fun as I learned quite a few new facts about the history of my city. For example, the story behind the name of the Swimming street (Peldu iela) in the Old Riga is hilarious. Join the tour with the knowledgeable and witty tour guide Guna to find it out for yourself! Guna’s enthusiasm and energy made the tour equally enjoyable for adults and kids in our group.

    We were having a group of business people visiting Riga and were interested to know some details about Riga old town. Guna was excellent choice as she understands the audience well and their interests. She told us so many interesting facts about the city and stories you cant find from boring travelbooks or regular tours. Highly passioned, good english, russian and makes you welcomed in the city.

    I visited Riga for probably my 20th time when I somehow decided to get a guided tour. I actually didn’t have to many expectations and since I now a bit about the city I believed that nothing really new would come out. WELL – Exactly the opposite. Somehow the guide sensed the level I knew and tailored the walk and the stories for my needs. Amazing. I loved the history lesson and the delivery made. I will do it again on my next trip. But demand to walk in a new section of the city just fot the challenge. 😉
