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.

    Krista was very knowledgeable, has a bright personality and made the trip enjoyable. As a solo traveler on this trip being able to go on a group trip made it affordable.

    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.

    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. 😊

    Thanks for a fantastic tour out of Riga city. We really enjoyed getting to see other places nearby and hear more about their history, as well as try some traditional local food. Thanks to Erlens for a really fun and informative tour.

    Very good tour, our guide Paul was very knowledgeable, very relaxed and made us feel like we were just riding with an old friend . Ride was smooth, careful driver and very interesting sites. Must do when in Latvia

    Such a beautiful day! The Hill of Crosses is a very worthwhile side trip from Riga. Not just for a gathering perspective but also historical and cultural experience.

    Erlens was a well educated and gracious guide. He shared lots of information and answered many questions on the drive to Lithuania, and provided great explanations of the Hill once we arrived. He allowed us ample time to explore, photo and pray while we were there. The side trips along the return were welcome and fun!

    His minivan was very clean and the small group (max 8 ppl) made it easy to chat amongst ourselves and with Erlens.

    I would definitely recommend this trip to visitors to Riga and Latvia who seek more than just a city break.

    We had a wonderful tour with Armands. Experiencing the sunrise at the Hill of Crosses really is special and we didn't regret booking the trip. Going there early in the morning also means that you have the place to yourself, meaning no other people in the photos you take ;)
    Armands is a fascinating person and had lots of interesting stories to tell. He's also a very good driver and we felt safe with him, which isn't the least important feature when you spend four hours in the car.

    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.

    We had absolutely stunning day with Paul, well planned And organised tour, can’t really wish for more!

    We had interesting and informative bunker tour together with other English speaking people inside the bunker we had a lunch( but that’s only available during the weekend ) . Also Paul told everything we wanted to know about Lettonia.

    We really appreciated that car was new and comfortable.

    Thank you AllureTours :)))
