Me and 7 fellow friends recently visited Rige for my hen weekend. I had been in talks with Graham before i left but unable to make a decision we left it until last minute to book and Graham booked us in for cocktail making and Husky Dogg Sledding!

We did the Cocktail Making at the Balsalm bar with Liene which was so much fun and defiantely worth the money we all left feeling very merry!!!

Then we did the Husky Dog Sledding the next day. Which was so much fun my one complaint would be it wasnt quite long enough for the cost . And we were told we would have somewhere to sit and have a drink but we were just stood in the cold! But would Strongly Reccomend!

Overall we had a great time in Riga and will definately be going back!

Hi Laura,
Thank you very much for your review. Despite us having to turn around your booking at such late notice we are really glad you had a wonderful hen party and that you will be definitely be coming back to Riga soon!!

I apologise on behalf of our guide for not leading you in to the house whilst sledding for a cup of tea. In our experience, most of the time the rest of the group want to wait outside and watch the remainder of the group sledding back to base and play with the puppys. We will certainly make the option to wait in the house clearer in the future.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Riga.

Have a wonderful Easter!!

We had such a good time in Riga recently and our activities with Travel Out There were part of our best memories. He went for the Husky Sledge Ride and the AK 47 shooting activity. The husky sledge ride was so much fun that afterwards my boyfriend proposed - it was magical! The shooting was also great fun we had ten rounds on the Glock hand gun and five rounds on the Ak 47. Our guide was really helpful, giving us a tour of the city as we passed through and allowing us loads of time to ask questions and take photos. She also took photos of us. This company and these activities come highly recommended.

Hi Fiona, Really glad to hear you had a fabulous time in Riga. Liene was honored to have witnessed your boyfriend's proposal.

We wish you both all the happiness in the world and hope to see you again soon.

All 20 of us enjoyed our time with travel out there! We did the olympic bobsleigh run which was immense!! The organisation was superb, from booking it up to arranging our collection for the event. Graham was our organiser who always answered any queries promptly when we were booking and Aus was our guide who exceeded expectations by also advising us of a hockey event (something we would never have thought off!), well done, will book with you again! All the best, Mike and the stags!!

My two daughters and I were in Riga in January for three days. This was the second time we booked with Riga outhere and we were not disappointed. We had a wonderful tour guide for our tour of Jewish Riga which was over twodays. She was so knowledgable about the sights: Rumbola Forest, Salaspils, the Art Deco Buildings ( my passion) and other sights. Our transfers were great as well. Highly recommended.

I help run an amatuer football team who like to have a club 'jolly' once a year and we've used 'Travel Out There' to arrange football tours for us on two occasions now (we're also booked up with them to go to Budapest later this year as well).

Having extensively searched the internet and contacted various companies, Travel Out There impressed us the most with what they could offer, the price and their level of service. Communication was very good right from the beginning and we had constant emails to and from them as they dealt with all of our questions and queries. Having never played or arranged a football match abroad before - their service and package was exactly what we were looking for. We booked airport transfers, accommodation and the football match all through Travel Out There and it really meant a hassle free excursion for us.

When we arrived for our first trip (to Riga) we were greeted at the airport by a friendly representative who guided us to our coach and was incredibly helpful and chatty all the way to our accomodation - giving us exactly the kind of hints and tips we were looking for during our stay. His local knowledge was fantastic and he helped to tell us where to go, what to see, what to do and places to avoid. He also joined up with us for part of our first night out and took us on a guided tour of some of the best bars in the area which was great and really added to our experience of Riga.

Our accommodation was a hostel that had been exclusively booked out by our group and was spot on for our needs. Very safe, very clean - incredibly well priced and in a great area of Riga.

The football match was arranged for our second day in Riga and was very well organised. We were collected from our accomodation by coach and taken to the venue which was an indoor centre with 3G playing surface. On arrival we were greeted by the visiting team (Riga United) and shown to the changing rooms where bottles of water had been laid on for us. The match itself was a fantastic experience and our whole group thoroughly enjoyed it. The oppostion players were off a good standard, very sporting and all great guys who invited us back to a local pub after the game for some beers to celebrate and talk over the game. Needless to say we had a fantastic evening in their company and it further enhanced our enjoyment of the tour.

Riga itself is a fantastic place and I'd recommend it to anyone in a heartbeat. Beautiful city, lovely people, great atmosphere and everyone
