Where to begin...we began to communicate with Rihards, who is part owner of this company, over a year ago. Our group of 10 had relatives who'd left Latvia after WWII and we wanted to see the rather remote area where they had lived. They created a custom tour for us that was phenomenal, even arranging for someone to meet and let us into the church that the family had attended. Rihards had to arrange for a minibus and driver since we were a larger group than he usually escorts. Interesting places were visited on the way to and from the family farm too. In addition to this special tour, Rihards also escorted us on the Jurmala Seaside tour, where we visited several different coastal areas, and were able to enjoy some of the wonderful natural areas of Latvia. Rihards was extremely knowledgeable and a good speaker of English. He shared interesting facts and stories throughout our two full days together, and we enjoyed his company and his perspective tremendously. Our first day in Riga, our group also took the Old Town and Art Nouveau tour through this company with Marija as our guide. She was also very good, and had great knowledge of the area. She also knew where to duck in when a brief downpour hit. :-) You *could* just walk around Riga and look at buildings and monuments but that would be such a waste - good guides like Rihards and Marija are able to share stories and interesting information to give so much more context to what you see. My highest recommendation goes to this company, and to Rihards, who really went above and beyond to give our group an amazing experience!

The two day-trips we took with Rihards (“Hiking in Sigulda” and “Baltic Sea Coast & Jūrmala”) were the highlight of the three weeks we spent in the Baltics. Both trips were so much fun and were great value (a lot is packed into the Baltic Sea Coast trip – Rihards planned many stops to show us different aspects of life in the area).

Both days were filled with conversation and laughter; Rihards is very laid back and a great person to spend the day with. We felt we got a much better insight into the culture, people and geography of Latvia; Rihards even arranged for beautiful weather just for us!

We highly recommend Discover Latvia as an easy way to see more of Latvia. Both of the tours we took were fantastic but I am sure any Discover Latvia tour you are interested in will be equally spectacular.

Thanks so much Rihards!!

We had a wonderful time. Great insight into outdoor beauty and diversity of Latvian seacoast and related cultural insights. It was a long day - we hiked over 10 miles and took an easy bike ride. Highly recommended!

We booked the Jumala and Baltic coast tour and had a thoroughly enjoyable day out with Rihards. This tour is ideal for people who want to get out of the city for a day and enjoy the beautiful Latvian coast line. We visited Jumala itself, national parks and had a very enjoyable 8km cycle ride along the coast. Rihards was an excellent guide and very friendly. He also supplied a very nice Latvian picnic for lunch. Thoroughly recommended.

We had an amazing day on the "Baltic Sea Coast and Jurmala Seaside Resort" trip. We booked a private tour with Rihards, who was a fantastic guide and taught us so much about Latvia. The trip took us to many beautiful locations, a lot of them off the beaten track so we felt like we saw the real Latvia.

Our stop at Lake Kanieris was the highlight of the day, we couldn't believe how beautiful and peaceful it was.

The trip is really varied, from climbing an observation tower in Jurmala to having a picnic in the forest to a bike ride in Roja.

We would recommend this trip to everyone visiting Riga as an opportunity to see more of the country. Thank you so much to Rihards for a great day and helping us fall in love with Latvia!
