Excellent tour of the Art Nouveau area of Riga. It felt like a fun university class. I enjoyed the way our guide Eduard asked US questions and got the group involved in finding features of the buildings. Very well done!

I participated in two walking tours during the weekend (Old Riga by James and Riga's history of Art Nuevo by Rixard). Both of them were very informative, professional and entertaining.

The tour has very nice aesthetics. The guide told us a lot about Riga's architecture and life in general. Recommend, if you are interested in the architecture and interesting stories about Riga
