      Does any one know this taxi company. I would be arriving late at the airport and I read about this company. I am leary of just taking a taxi at the airport.

      Any advice is gladly accepted

      by gulnese Online Now Jun 25, 2014 at 4:14 AM

      Hi to all,
      I will be in Riga for two days and the tour operator advices us to visit Sigulda ,Jurmala, Bauska and Rundela but I am not sure as tours quite often take people to places that don't come first in the list of the places to worth seeing.
      Is these destinations are worth seeing or is there any other place that are prevail in the order?
      Would like to learn what transportation is best (more important cheaper) to visit the above four places and other advised destinations?
      Also would like to have local cuisine for dinner and perhaps have a break in a good pub or beer house.
      But as you would appreciate, touristic places are quite expensive and not always the exact quality.
      I prefer to investigate the city by myself and would be happy to hear all your advices.
      Thank you all for your interest.

      A few hours in Riga

      We (a family of 3: child 8 years + parents) are having a 15 hours stop-over in Riga the coming Sunday. As we arrive very early in the morning, expecting to have slept zero hours, our primary concern is to find a room where we can rest for some hours before doing a little sightseing.

      Can you recommend a suitable hotel (clean / reasonable price, close to either airport or city)?

    • Lighthouse

      by roothy123 Online Now Jun 4, 2012 at 1:01 PM

      I was wondering if anyone knows if you can get to the lighthouse located at the beginning of the river (harbor?) as you approach Riga from the sea. It is a black and white lighthouse. I would have to rely on public transportation and walking if I wanted to go see it, so if any details about that are available, I'd really appreciate the information!

      40 minutes between flights in Riga airport

      by IngaA Online Now Jan 4, 2012 at 2:33 AM


      I'm considering a week-end trip to Istanbul.
      I've found needed itinerary with Air Baltic at descent price, via Riga. But the time inerval between arrival to Riga and then departure to Istanbul is only 40 minutes. However Air Baltic site offers this itinerary.
      I wonder if that's a good idea or it's too risky. I haven't been to Riga airport, I don't know hoe big it is.
      What would you say? Is there a chance to get to the flight?
      Thank you

      Air Baltic' prognosis

      by schmechi Online Now Nov 20, 2011 at 9:56 AM

      I want to book a flight in advance operated by Air Baltic. I read that this company is facing heavy financial turbulences, so do you think booking is still safe? Or is it likely to go bankrupt, so that it would be more clever to book flights of another airline?

I've been to Riga and as much as I like it, 2 more days wouldn't be possible. Where should I go?
