Booked English tour, but perchance the group had to be split and lots of German speakers were around, so one of the guides was a native speaking German, so she made a tour in German. She was great: full of knowledge, wit and interesting things to tell and show. We enjoyed it a lot.

Rita has been the best guide so far since using Guruwalk. Excellent dosed information on history and what interests us as tourists and introduces us to the very city/country we came to. I praise her English, which is really at the top level, she is a true professional. The time passed quickly, the restaurant was excellent that she recommended for local food. I recommend Rita if you want to really experience Riga 😊
