A Recent Review of this tour

Agrita took my family of 4 today to Sigulda and Turaida today. Along the way we stopped for a bobsled ride, visited a master amber craftsmen and had a lovely lunch at a local cafe. Agrita was a wonderful and informative tour guide and answered all of our questions. It was a pleasant day to spend outside of Riga. I highly recommend Agrita for any of your touring needs.
