Tour: #10583, Sigulda & Ethnographic Open Air Museum day trip, Riga, Latvia    view tour
Date: Jul 28/17

Edgars was waiting for our cruise ship to arrive & drove us to great spots for photos, then drove us to the ethnographic museum (wonderful thanks to Edgars explaining everything), then to Segula for beautiful scenery. We ended at Old Town Riga. Edgars was easy to understand and provided great commentary on the history of Latvia and everyday life. He is a careful driver and pointed out interesting sites, like stork nests. I highly recommend this private tour-we learned a lot about Latvia! Thank you Edgars!

Tour: #177487, Riga to Vilnius (or Kaunas) Via Rundale Palace and Hill of Crosses, Riga, Latvia    view tour
Date: Jun 9/17

Edgars drove us from Vilnius to Riga, stopping along the way to show us the Hill of Crosses and Rundale Palace. He was punctual, knowledgeable about both Lithuania and Latvia, energetic, and a careful driver. Our only issue with him was our inability to understand his speech at times. You have to listen to him carefully. But he carried out his duties exactly as we had hoped and expected.

Edgar was punctual and polite. He arrived at 9 AM to pick us up and drive us from Riga to Vilnius. His communication prior to picking us up was excellent. However, once we met Edgar, he spoke very little to us. It was difficult to understand his English. At the Rundale Palace, he walked us into the palace and took us to the ticket office, but stated everything was written in english and that he would not accompany us. At hill of crosses, he pointed us in the direction, but did not accompany us.

Edgars was a wonderful companion for my round trip tour from Riga to Vilnius via Rundale Palace and the hill of Crosses. He was punctual, patient with me and my endless questions, sharing, proud of his culture, and very passionate about his country. Although he is not a licensed tour guide, he was very knowledgeable about the history of the places we visited. I highly recommend him and will use his services for my future trips to the Baltic region.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Tarifa for your kind words. I will do my best to improve my service. Edgars

We had Edgars take us from Riga to Vilnius, via Rundale Palace and the Hill of Crosses. Edgars picked us up right on time at the lobby of our hotel. An excellent driver, he took us to Rundale and gave us plenty of time to explore. Then on to the Hill of Crosses, another great stop. Dropped us right at our hotel in Vilnius. A perfect day, great drive, and exceptional way to go from Riga to Vilnius. You will be very pleased to put yourself in Edgars' hands!

Edgars L did an amazing job facilitating our tour! His knowledge around Latvia was expansive, educating us throughout the entire day. Driving to Hill of Crosses in Lithuania is something that is worth the time commitment, it is a place like absolutely no other in the world. On returning to Riga, Edgars L ensured that our trip was rounded out with amazing panoramic places of interest that showed off Riga. This experience is one that we will never forget, Great Job Edgars L,"Liels paldies"!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear John, Thank you for the kind words! It was very nice meeting you. Liels lūdzu!! :)

Edgars was friendly, and knowledgeable and knew the city well. Unfortunately he spent too much time on his cell phone particularly when he and my husband were walking around together while I stopped for a rest for a previous leg injury

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Judy! Thank you very much for your feedback! Review will definitely help me to improve the quality of the tour!
