Our group of 4 was SO very glad we selected this tour - it was the highlight of our cruise! Armands was a wonderful guide and arrived at the port on time to pick us up in his very comfortable vehicle. He pointed out so many wonderful things along our way, told us about Riga’s stories and legends, took us to the central market and made some tasting suggestions, and answered all of our questions about life in Riga. One of our party had a recent hip surgery and was a bit slower getting around, and Armands graciously and easily adjusted the tour pace to accommodate her without cutting anything out of the tour. We arrived knowing almost nothing about Latvia, but by the end of the tour, we were in love with this beautiful place! We learned so much, and around each corner was an even more beautiful place. We were very pleasantly surprised and impressed by Riga, and we cannot thank Armands enough for bringing it to life for us. We hope to come back and stay longer next time!
