We had booked the half day trip of Riga. Ilze turned out to be very knowledgeable and told us lots of interesting facts. We had requested for some lesser known spots to be included in the itenerary. She even took us to a monument that is painful part of her country's history and was good enough to give us the story behind it. It was an enjoyable outing, Ilze's English is quite good. Only drawback is that her car cannot accomodate 4 adults in comfort, though she advertises it as such.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs. Tineke van Buul, Thank you for your rating ! I am sorry about my car , that you did not feel so comfortable - when people are booking , they have an information , what kind of car it is. Thank you for your comment , I will make more photos of the car to help people to make the right decision if they will be interested to book such a tour for 4 persons in the future. With my best wishes Ilze Guide

Ilze did a phenomenal job of showing Riga to us! Even though the boat was forced to park outside of the normal port, she drove the extra 20 minutes and got us with a smile on her face! That smile never left her face as she shared her passion for her lovely city. I would definitely recommend Ilze and this tour for anyone and would book her again!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for such a nice rating! I was glad to show you my beautiful town Riga. With my best regards from Riga Ilze- your guide

This was a great choice for seeing Riga on limited time. It was a spur of the moment trip and we only had the 4 or so hours while our ship was docked. A perfect way to learn as much as possible about a new location. We had 2 teenage boys along and they both learned also. It's also great to know you have someone who knows their way around to get you back where you need to be.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jennifer , I was glad to show you my beautiful town Riga and I hope, you will remember Latvia and Riga and will have a wish to visit us an other time to see more from our country. With my best greetings for all your family - Ilze -Guide

Ilze was fun and very accommodating. We saw a lot with her car. The Jewish sites were good; the stop for coffee and windmill pastry was fun. Ilze made the day enjoyable! Interesting to hear her talk about herself.

Ilze was very proud of her city and her background knowledge was exceptional. We all could have used a few less facts and figures. There was some confusion regarding the van taking us back to the boat after 4 p.m. in light of the rain.

Very good tour, but seemed a little scripted. When we asked questions, they were sometimes skipped over and the tour continued. All in all though, would definitely recommend this tour.
