          Cancel when you like…
          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.

          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).

          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!

          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.

          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.

          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 !

          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.

          What a great day
          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.

          Simply the best!
          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.

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