Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Great day trip to see the beautiful Latvian countryside and history. Normundos was an excellant guide, very knowledgable about his country and passionate about the history. We learnt loads about the country during our trip, both historic and modern day. We were picked up early and whilst we did see the 3 castles, we also went to coast which was lovely. I would highly recommend this trip, well worth the price.

    The guide was so excellent and mixes in history with more personal bits of information. She made the tour really interesting and entertaining. I really feel I got a good overview of the history of Riga. Highly recommend

    Krista made our day. No only did she suggest the location but she also planned the tour considering our needs of all kinds such as food breaks, restroom breaks, alternative routes taking into account weather conditions, and our time frame. Definitely worth a strong recommendation!!
    Krista‘s personality is also worth mentioning: having her as a guide feels like walking with a friend. Thanks so much for this fantastic day.

    A delicious way to spend part of your day. Although the description says it is not 'lunch' you will not have room for more when you are done. We feel like we saw the best of the market and got insider information about some of the treats and unusual food items enjoyed by Latvians. Since we were in town for a few days at a B&B we brought a back pack and were happy we did. After the tour we backtracked to purchase some of the delicious food we tasted. One of the best tours we have had.

    Our group of 12 spent two days with Harijs, touring Sigulda and Riga's Old Town, and had a wonderful experience. He designed the two days of touring based on our initial input, and continued to be flexible throughout the two days, as we made requests to adjust the schedule and work in one or two changes. We saw a broad range of Riga's highlights, and learned a ton about Latvian history. And we also got a great sense for modern Latvian culture, attitudes, and what life has felt like for the local population during the last couple years. Oh, and we got a taste of Latvia while visiting the market!

    Harijs was funny, engaging, and the many hours we spent with him seemed to pass very quickly, as his storytelling made the experience a lot of fun. He conducted the tour in flawless English, and was also comfortable switching to Russian for those in our group who speak it. And his love for Latvia came through constantly, even when undercut by his self-deprecating humor about the "lowly" achievements of his little country (e.g. in the olympics, as he introduced us to one of only ~10 bobsled tracks operating anywhere in the world). He clearly loves his country, and nowhere was that more evident than in the closing stages of our Riga Tour when he recounted the history of the Barricades, Latvians' heroic confrontation with Soviet forces sent to clamp down on Latvia's declared independence.

    Tour logistics were handled smoothly (coordinating a bus for us, managing the timing, breaks, etc.) throughout, and the whole experience worked well for kids and adults in our group.

    We would absolutely recommend Harijs to anyone looking for a great guide and a great tour, and we'd happily use Honest Tours again in the future!

    What a fantastic day, crossed two countries in one morning…. NOTE to self and others DONT forget your passport to cross borders. Moving experience at Hill of Crosses, beautiful Palace and castle. Our tour guide Normunds was fantastic, what a knowledgeable man, great company and I would highly recommend him. He took us to a lovely Taverna for lunch. Thanks for such a great experience Normands. If you ever come to the UK I’ll show you our countryside. 😊

    Great experience to truly get to know the Old Town. Very knowledgeable, friendly guide who was more than happy to answer all questions and talk about various historic events, facts. Received many off-tour recommendations for food, sightseeing, cafes, and attractions.

    Definitely recommend it- we wouldn't even see half of the hidden Old Town pearls if we had a walk around ourselves.

    Doing this activity in Riga is paramount if you don't know it well or even just if you want to know much more places in the old town. We have done a tour with Diane that is very kind, polite, funny, beautiful and interesting person. She will guide you along the city center of the old town making you discover places and offering you a different view of the beautiful Riga. Really recommended. If I come back I'll do this tour again!

    As my husband is unable to walk fast or far, this solo tour was perfect for us. We could walk together to a coffee shop and I could continue on listening to the tour and then come back to meet up with my husband over another coffee.

    I can not say enough nice things about our experience with Normunds of socialbuy.org. We spent hours enriched in the history of Latvia, enjoying the beautiful countryside. If you are planning a trip to Latvia you absolutely must book with socialbuy.org, you will not be disappointed.
