          Great nature experience
          We had a great trip with a very friendly driver. The dogs were curious and eager to pull the sled. It was very relaxing to spend time in the calming snowy forest.

          Short but sweet.
          A nice experience that I would recommend to every animal lover. Unfortunately our tour guide was a little - he did apologize tho so it wasn’t too big of a deal. He was very nice and kept the conversation alive. Once you arrive at the spot you are greeted by many huskies and they are very friendly, you can go straight up to pet them and take pictures. The actual ride is fun but unfortunately a bit short. Maybe 10 minutes as a pair (15 minutes max).

          Very nice experience with Husky sledding
          We had a very nice experience with Husky sledding in cold Latvia less than two hours from Riga. Everything was very well organized.

          Not reliable company
          We(my daughter/wife and myself)booked this tour beginning of December and it got confirmed . 22 days later, 1 day before our flight to Riga they cancelled our tour, reason: double booking. When I mentioned why they waited almost a month to inform us and that it would be impossible for us to book anything else we only got a:it’s not our fault response. I begged them for an alternative and they proposed the most expensive version instead a few days later, No discount, no apology but Without an alternative I took the other option. 1 day before the ultimate most expensive tour, they cancelled us AGAIN. Reason: temperature is above 0. So don’t believe any of the, if there is no snow you can go on wheels cause they just cancel if they feel like it. First time I’m writing a bad review but the disappointment in this company is just too great.

          A beautiful and progressive small ocean city in the heart of the Baltic Sea . Great old town , good time , but it has formalities , respect , controls and good citizen behavior .. Do not be offended by objectivity , planning and on time is very important , and this is good !

          Bucket list ticked
          Really good fun, the time with the dogs was brilliant. Wish the ride was longer though. Don't be nervous of doing it - in reality the dogs don't get to 20-30kmph. I have arthritic knees and had 3 operations on my back and it was fine for me. It was also lovely to have some time to walk in the forest, even if it was only 30 minutes. The husky dog socks are definitely warm too! I never thought I'd get to do this.

          Fantastic trip
          Fantastic trip - A really well organized tour. I can’t find a single fault. The snow was a bonus !! The dogs clearly were extremely well looked after. They obviously loved the owners and enjoyed all the attention. The huskies were the friendliest dogs , considering their mainly rescue ones , every one was gentle and loving. The pick up / drop off was smooth. The tower views were amazing. Take some euros for the excellent prices gloves made from Husky fur ! Tom was very well informed even though it was a new role for him. He even videoed us and air dropped it. Value ; service , everything was faultless.

          The best tour company ever.....
          Allure Tours is superb - I recommend them highly. We were looked after by Paul who was efficient, knowledgable and great company. He drove us to Rundale Palace and the next day to Vilnius via The Hill of Crosses. Paul went out of his way to make the trips very enjoyable. Allure Tours is also very good value - and I did my research! I would not hesitate to recommend this company - Just book them!

        We had a great time, Paul was fantastic. It was myself, my wife, 4 year old and 7 month old, we had loads of time to cuddle with the huskies. As my 7 month wasn't going on the sled they let my 4 year old go on twice at no extra charge which she loved, the only problem now is she keeps asking if we can get a husky!

        We were initially booked on a different tour but, due to lack of snow we were contacted in plenty of time and were offered an alternative tour.
        Paul was our guide and he collected us from our hotel. Car was very comfortable and Paul gave us lots of facts and historical information on the 1.5 hour drive to the sledding location.
        Sledding guides Nikolai and Elsa were great hosts and care greatly for their dogs. We had plenty of time to meet all the dogs and to learn how to sled.
        Time on sled was 15-20 minutes with the chance to both drive and sit. It was really fun and there were beautiful views as we travelled down the track.
        We returned to mulled wine and ginger biscuits and the chance to buy souvenirs of our favourite dogs.
        Would highly recommend. The service was brilliant and you could tell that all involved wanted to make this a great experience.

        Absolutely amazing. This unique experience exceeded all our expectations. The guide (Gints ) was extremely friendly, explained all very well, and was very punctual. We had time to interact with all the dogs before the ride (all very excited by quite friendly), which we really enjoyed. The ride itself was incredible - just us and the dogs in the wilderness. This is one to repeat if ever I come to Riga again. Thank you Gints and Allure Tours

        Bit of a joke really. Told you have to cancel 24 hours in advance, yet they cancel on you 12 hours before you’re set to go. Not only that, we were offered an alternative and then 1 minute later the trip was cancelled. Slightly bemused by the whole situation and frustrating to not be made a bit more aware of the situation. Very frustrating as we were looking forward to this experience.

        We were picked up by Gints, who was very punctual, at our hotel.

        It took us 30-40 mins to get to the Ogre Forest and we were welcomed by the dogs. We spent 15-20 mins getting to know the dogs which were all very lovely and well-tempered.

        After meeting the dogs we got some instructions on how to steer the sledge. The ride was amazing.

        We then went for a picturesque walk and climbed to the top of viewing tower.

        Gints was very nice and chatty.

        Highly recommended!

        This is a great experience, riding through the forest of snow being pulled by 6 dogs who look like they’re having a blast. Our guide Paul picked us up from the hotel and took us to the forest area where you ride on the sleigh as a passenger for about 15 mins then swapped over to drive the sleigh on return. Then Paul took us to the top a wooden tower to overlook the forest canopy for cool photos.
        Fully recommend this experience, perfect day out.

        Glad we chose the Ultimate Husky Dog Sledding, we were picked up at the hotel, had the guides full attention and had one of the best experiences we have had for a long time. If you like dogs, or even if you don't, you couldn't fail to love these dogs. We were very fortunate that we had snow, lots of it which for us added to the experience. After the sledding a walk through the forest and up the viewing platform, an experience in itself! The whole experience was 5 star, the dogs were gorgeous and if you get Paul as your guide you really have won the jackpot. He was brilliant, so informative, friendly and easy to talk to. A brilliant excursion worth every penny.

        The most amazing bucket list experience! The views from the forest were beautiful, especially at the top of the viewing tower and all of the huskies were really friendly. Our private tour guide, Paul, was brilliant! He answered all of our questions, gave us a history of Riga, and helped take lots of photos. Overall, a 10/10 experience, would definitely recommend this if you’re visiting Riga.

        Paul, our guide, picked us up at our hotel and drove us to the Riga countryside. He was super friendly throughout both the ride and our stay while waiting for our turn to be on the sled. He gave us tips on what to do and where to eat in Riga and allowed us to get to know and pet the dogs both before and after our ride.
        All the dogs were beautiful and super friendly, excited to be the next ones to run and have fun. We got to drive the sled after a quick explanation and change seats halfway through. The dogs looked like they were having the time of their lives!
        To sum it up, this is a must-do experience while in Riga during the winter - 100% recommended. Paul was the cherry on top after a beautiful experience!
