What people are saying about Jurmala

Very knowledgeable and educated guide, kind and nice. We saw all the features of Jurmala, he explained the history, geography, showed us the various places, the beach, showed us beautiful Orthodox churches and typical tourist walks. Armands has excellent knowledge of the various springs in the area and the various types of mineral waters, where he was a real "scientist". Very cultured and prepared. Very interesting experience. Ah… we climbed the typical tower that was once used to distribute water to the city and enjoyed an excellent view.

This was a wonderful Tour with an outstanding guide. Hiking to beautiful places. Having a great picknick. We got so much information on the country, its nature and culture and history. And even tips for our next days in Riga. In the end we could visit the new and very interesting Jurmala museum. A full day. We have got even more than promised. Highly recommended.

Was a wonderful day! We can recommend the tour to everyone. Although the tour was in English, we could understand everything well. So don't hesitate because of possible language barriers. The guide was super nice and told us a lot about the places but also about the Latvian culture. It's worth it!! :)

We had a very nice day with Armands at Jurmala beach. We are really interested in architecture and he did show us a lot of interesting houses and told us about the owners.I am not so interested in running that much and he did slowly what I really appreciated. Thanks Armands for the nice day.

Very informative tour. Very kind and knowledgable guide. Couldn’t think of a better way to spend 3-4 hours.
