Riga travel guide

Are you planning to explore the famous landmarks of Riga? Are you looking for more insight than a typical guidebook tells you?

Feedback from travelers
CEO "WanderStories travel guides are like having a local friend, a cultural expert, and a historian all traveling with you. The stories are well written and they bring the local culture to life, creating a rich visual experience." James, CEO of a publishing company
traveler "WanderStories has achieved that happy medium that many tourists wish a guidebook could be: they're longer and more informative than a regular travel guide, yet are more concise than a huge book. Plus they guide you around sites as if you're on an actual tour - something that no other guidebook does." Katherine, serial traveler
Lily and Marcello “Arc de Triomphe in Paris eBook by WanderStories, that was a real treat for us!” Lily and Marcello
Professor "What's special about WanderStories travel guides is that they can be read anytime. I liked the detailed imagery and interesting stories. You don't have to be there to appreciate them!" Connor, Professor of Psychology
writer "Finding a personal travel guide who conveys the essence of the local customs, legends and rich history of your visit, is like gold-dust. WanderStories travel guides do just that. You can relive the tales, walk through history and feel part of it, discover secrets you never imagined. Compelling, informative, and memorable, these stories must be every visitor's favorite companion." Macy, writer
expert "When I was in Paris I had a really good guide who really knew her stuff. She brought the places to life for me. WanderStories is like having her at your fingertips all the time." Donna, IT Consultant
expert "Thanks a lot for the Istanbul guide! We used it for Topkapi, Blue Mosque, Bazaar and Cistern. Great info in there, and the routes work really nicely. I was quite surprised how little information there is at some of the sights and really liked the storied you have sourced and the opinions given. Great photos too!" Charlie & Margaret
expert "I wanted a taste of Shanghai before going there on business. I chose the Shanghai Stories and read about the Bund, Yuyuan Garden, Mid-Lake Pavilion Teahouse and Lu Xun Park. I felt prepared for my trip there and I knew something about the city so that I could chat with my hosts. When I actually visited the Lu Xun Park I realised just how good the WanderStories were – it was so easy to find my way round. Well done WanderStories!" Lin, Business Developer
expert "I visited Tallinn with some friends and we bought the Tallinn Stories eBook to find our way around the city. It was great! We were able to wander round as we pleased either together or in smaller groups. When we wanted a break, we took one. And when we wanted to continue the next day, we switched on and off we went. Highly recommended!" Nicolas, Cross-Cultural Communications Expert & World Traveler
teacher "I love history and having Wanderstories in my hand as I walked around was like having a historian telling me the real human stories behind the places I was looking at. So much more detailed than an ordinary guidebook. It'll be Wanderstories for my next trip." Vivian, teacher
students "We love to hear the stories behind the sights, and although personal tour guides are great, we like to have time on our own to explore. Wanderstories tell fascinating stories, they allow us to prepare for our visit, we get a 'personal guide' whilst we're there, and we get to rediscover the sights when we get home again. Perfect!" Nick and Maria, students
manager "Loving history and wanting to travel all over the world exploring even if it's just from my Kindle, I thoroughly enjoyed the Beijing Stories e-book. With only basic previous knowledge of China's history I found the virtual tour given in this book very interesting and in-depth. I only have the basic Kindle, however, I found the pictures were great with the text and definitely added to the feeling of being there. Whether you are going to China or are just interested in China's history I can truly recommend this book." Ken, General Manager
architect "These illustrated e-travel guides really deserve their name WanderStories because they provide a wealth of information recounted by people who know their country’s treasures and let you wander with them. The atmosphere they create lingers with you long after, and you can recall the tour as often as you wish." Joseph, product designer
receptionist “I really enjoyed Shanghai Stories. It provided good information, often in an amusing way, about the sights, information that you cannot find in any guidebook. The story telling style was presented very clearly and got me hooked. I liked the chapter form too, so I could easily read and walk around as I enjoyed the sights. When I visited Yu Yuan Garden, this ebook was actually the guided tour in my hands.” Katya, receptionist
architect “Perfect for my business trip to Beijing. I didn't need any audio guides. It made my days worthwile.” Martin, architect
Colosseum “We just loved the ebook about Colosseum on our iPad. WanderStories rule!” Max & Nadya
Istanbul “Istanbul Stories Top 10 is a wonderful guide book, ideal for the first time traveller to Istanbul. Tells about places to be visited, lay outs and wonderful colourful stories about the specific area and the people involved. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.” Fran
