Awesome weekend! Best stag location visited by far!
The fact that you’re reading this means Riga must be on your shortlist of places to take the boys - and for that alone, we salute you. Put simply, Riga is the dog’s Baltics. It’s an authentic East European gem with a persuasive penchant for partying, and it’s the perfect city for a sensational stag weekend abroad.
Our own Managing Director and founder, Matt, had the good sense to pick out Riga for his own stag celebrations several years ago. And, Matt’s event is one of over 1,000 successful Baltic benders we’ve put together since helping to pioneer this prize location at the turn of the millennium, reflecting the rich depth of the Latvian capital’s nightlife, as well as its dazzlingly sexy women and enduring word-of-mouth reputation.
Since 2009, Riga has gone from strength to strength, cementing its position as one of our biggest selling Eastern European stag locations and gaining a whole new wave of converts into the bargain. Most of your weekend will be concentrated in Riga’s partly-cobbled Old Town, known as Vecriga. The city does not have the colossal number of hotels you would expect from a capital, but what we offer there is excellent quality whilst being central, stag-friendly and of superb value.
And now we have to mention the women in Riga. Riga’s women are undeniably a key factor in why so many stag parties fall in love with the destination before they’ve even unpacked. Riga girls speak perfect English, but this doesn’t mean you won’t score big brownie points by whipping out your (steady now) three basic Latvian phrases - so polish up on your “Ludzu” (Please – pronounced ‘loo-dzu’) and your “Paldies” (Thanks – pronounced ‘puhl-day-es’) and see the reaction you get when you do.
As well as its legendary nightlife, the menu of organised events and activities through the day and early evening – be it the 70 km per hour Olympic bobsleigh run, trundling around town on the Beer Bike, sampling the famous Medieval Banquet or some AK47 and Shotgun shooting – is proven and popular. Riga is the very reason stag dos were invented.
“The activities were excellent and the staff that took is on our trips were very friendly and helpful.
“Well thought out booking process, great location. Would recommend.”
“I had a great time on my stag. The activities were great, the team were lovely and helpful with timely responses and the place was awesome! Thank you!”
“Excellent organisation from the LNOF team, with all guides arriving at the pick up points ahead of schedule. The go-karting and the steak meal were 2 big highlights of the trip - thank you for all your help in making our trip a great weekend!”
“Chris Rawlinson has been brilliant arranging everything for a start. Was a excellent trip all the lads enjoyed it. Was great to have the guides for the activities and bar crawl because everything ran smooth and got to go to some good bars and not get stung. Some of the lads thought we may get dragged into places and stung for money but the opposite was true. Everywhere we went was reasonably prices. €3 for a pint in the hotel was really good and the hotel staff were friendly. One of our guides for the bungee jump Kristina was brilliant, very friendly and chatty. The other for the Bar crawl & shooting Anna did look a bit like she didn't want to be there and wasn't so chatty, seemed to want to be on mobile phone a bit more (having said that we were very drunk already when she turned up for the bar crawl so maybe we were hard work). Overall fantastic weekend and would definitely recommend yourselves as a company for making things run smooth.”
“Excellent price and excellent service every step of the way.”
“Friendly staff made the booking experiance very easy and stress free. ”
“Amazing weekend, would recommend to anyone!! ”
“Me, the stag and 26 other clowns from North Yorkshire embarked on a messy weekend in Riga organised by Paul at Last Night of Freedom. First off, Paul was brilliant at getting prices sorted for the various activites which also wiped the floor with the prices given by other stag companies. Everything was clearly described and very well communicated. The staff over in Riga at the hotel were great (strangely all women too)
which we didn't moan about. The best part without a doubt was the "Stag arrest".We were pulled over by a genuine looking police car and two meat-head blokes dressed in police gear picked on the drunken stag who was being a bit clever and cocky. When they brutally hauled him out of the mini van towards the police car he managed to cling onto a lamp post for a few seconds nearly crying his eyes out. He soon let go when one of the policemen pulled out his fake look-a-like 9mm handgun though! Definitely worth every penny if you really want the stag to brick it! Only criticism was when they eventually managed to haul him into the police car and speed off, they immediately told the stag it was a set up, so when they marched him into the police station (our hotel bar) and took the blind-fold off, he already knew. I'd still do it again though!
I highly recommend LNOF and honestly wouldn't think of going anywhere else for a stag do. ”
“Absolutely brilliant weekend. All organised well, with the girls at the hotel being very friendly . Would recommend LNOF to anybody. ”
“The hotel was great - There was only our stag party there so we had the place to ourselves. The rooms were very good, clean and the bathrooms seemed new. The staff in the hotel were great and friendly.
The only problem was the price of beer in the old town. I thought the prices may have been like Budapest but it was more expensive.
I used Last Night of Freedom in Jan 2014 and Jan 2015 and have been very impressed each time. Everyone on the trip have a great time, there was no trouble and the reps were helpful.
“I just wanted to say a quick thank you to you and the team for organising such a good weekend for our group this weekend. We went a bit off track and didn't take up the lap club/nightclub options but as you promised, the rooms were good ....in fact perfect for what we needed and The X Dreams tolerance hadn't changed one bit towards groups of blokes...which is ideal!”
“Last Night of Freedom and our guides in Latvia were absolutely fantastic.”
“Our stag came home with a smile on his face, thank you LNOF.”
“Very friendly people in Riga always willing to accommodate you. Nightlife was good loads of bars in the square. The bobsleigh was fun would recommend also went to the beach party very nice beach.”
“A top drawer weekend in Riga made easy by everyone at Last Night of Freedom!”
“Fantastic trip! Hotel was a perfect set up, all so simple and well organised so you can concentrate on having a smashing weekend!
Thank you for the memories.”
“Superb weekend in Riga, well organised start-finish. ”
“Couldn't fault LNOF's service from start to finish.
Paul phoned me up after initial website enquiry. The package he offered for our group (10 people) was very competitive...even more so when he confirmed that the stag's place would be included for free. Very easy to talk to...even when changes had to be made...certainly allayed any fears/concerns I had about getting the whole jaunt organised!
The activities were excellent. We went to Riga for 2 nights in mid-Jan…and the Bobsleigh (or Stagsleigh as we dubbed it!) being an excellent option! On same day we did shooting followed by stagsleigh. Would recommend doing it in this order as shooting is closer to hotel (so I think better to have the longer trip to stagsleigh afterwards..) and also because the stagsleigh was far more exhilarating – thought echoed by the whole group. Stag Kidnap is a MUST if you really want to stitch up the groom……was very well carried out and another highlight.
People on the ground there were very friendly/helpful…though the barstaff in hotel did tell a lie when they said their drinks were best prices in Riga…5 EUR for a small beer if I recall correctly…you could get some for 3 EUR in town…but you half expect them to say that in the hope you’ll just stay there all day!
Another bonus point about LNOF is that I got a discount code once booked for their online store…so was able to get all the essential stag merchandise (tour tshirts, obligatory humiliating fancy dress…) at a discounted rate.
Other plus points:
Provided a contact person directly within Riga
You have option to settle the balance outstanding for your trip in GBP upon arrival abroad (at least we did for Riga) which is good when you have people in your party who aren't so quick to stump up the cash!
Would certainly have no hesitation in using these guys again for future stag/boy’s weekends away…
“It was great weeked, well organised and always had help when needed. Unfortunately our weekend coincided with a terrible accident in Riga, and the city was quite subdued as a result.
However, we still had a good time and the activities were great.
It was worth using LNOF and would recommend. ”
“Awesome weekend! Best stag location visited by far! Staff both here in England and in riga were extremely helpful!
Would recommend to anyone looking for a great stag weekend in an awesome venue!!”
“Had a blinding weekend in Riga, full on boozefest from start to finish! Would recommend it to anyone looking to have a 'different' experience in another country.
Definitely the way forward for any group of lads looking to go out with a big fat bang!”
“Everything was just right the service was amazing, staff were all really helpful all the events were spot on not 1 complaint about the whole trip and we are planning to make this an annual event.
We even got to meet chris who booked this trip for us, he was very helpful and everything was just as good as he had promised. Thank you very much. Very satisfied stag!!”
“great city, excellent service, fun activities, great stag!”
“Paul was very helpful. ”
“We had a great weekend. Riga is a really nice city. Very friendly people and in the Old Town all bars and night clubs are very close. We had great weather, better than in Western Europe! The Hotel was very good, nice rooms, super breakfast and very big spa and leisure area. The girls that accompanied us to the activities where very friendly and well informed.”
“a very good weekend!! there were lots of laughs and a very good "last night of freedom" for the groom. beer bike was very good. ALL the staff were very welcoming and accommodating all weekend. rooms were clean and comfortable. all in all a good weekend not sure I’d want to go back to Riga unless it was for another stag weekend (which being a great guy im sure it won’t be long till im best man again!)
Many thanks, Ollie Rich ”
“Communication with the several tour leaders went okay. The young lady who was with us with the bar crawl was great. We explained to her what we wanted after our first stop. The first stop was a strip club. And sober and a strip club don't work. The other excursion we took was the shooting. That was just plain scary. Quite mental. I can't recommend Riga for a stag party. The atmosphere is dark. ”
“Before we flew out to Riga, we had all undertaken some research and had some reservations in light of what we had read (mostly positive but some concerning remarks made). That said, Last Night of Freedom and the company they work with in Riga were outstanding.
Everything was fantastically organised, the staff were always courteous and smashed every single one of our expectations comfortably.
Would definitely recommend Riga and would definitely recommend dealing with Last Night of Freedom.”
“WOW what a weekend that was , think we have all just about recovered !
Just wanted to drop you an email to say thank you and your team so much for making it happen ... the whole thing was awesome !!!!!!!
Highlight of the weekend was the stag arrest , im pretty sure he, and us will never ever forget it !
I guarantee when my next friend pops the question we will be coming to for a second instalement
“Carnage in the best possible way!”
“Just got back from Riga this weekend for my Stag Do. We had an amazing time both Friday and Saturday . Our tour guides in Riga were great and stayed with us all night and took us to the best places in town. They did everything we asked for with no hassle at all. Couldn't recommend this place any higher for going on a stag do. Top quality weekend !!!”
“Riga is very expensive for drinks so becomes a very expensive stag party. ”
“Everyone was really helpful - from the booking team all the way to the people in Riga at the hotel!
I've seen some really bad things about Riga and the hotel prior to this trip - all i can say is - what a load of nonsense!!!
“Great weekend away, blurred memory says it all.. Having a tour guide helped massively and have some serious respect for them putting up with 7 drunken idiots for the full weekend.
“Great weekend, really well organised and staff on site were really helpful! Definitely recommend LNOF and Riga to anyone. ”
“Really great weekend - some of the activities weren't all that clearly explained to us prior to travel but were amazingly good fun.
The fact you have a guide with you at pretty much all times and have an emergency number to ring 24/7 is a great help, and ensures we never really felt lost or struggled to get anywhere, and were never ripped off on a night out - would definitely use the service again if a plan another stag do!
“Thanks go to Last Night of Freedom, Paul in particular for sorting out the hassle of finding a great Stag location.
Riga was a great location to party the night and days away. Beer was, as David Dickinson would say, cheap as chips. About 1.5 Latts on averages (£1.68) a pint.
Most locals are friendly and a lot of them speak English. The old town is the best place to eat and drink. Plenty of Bars and Clubs to go to. Top Night had in 'THE CLUB'.
The hotel accommodation was basic, clean, tidy and comfortable.It came with its own Lap Dancing club/Bar which you could use as and when you wanted.
The hotel bar was expensive compared to elsewhere and the strippers to be very very pushy, somewhat demanding and annoying at times.
We arranged a pub crawl for our first night in Latvia. We had our own guide to take us round some bars at night, but to be honest we would have had a better time without her. Sorry to say our tour guide wasn’t that helpful and only wanted to take us to bars that were expensive and empty.
We were on a Stag do and we wanted to experience a local Latvian night out, with lots of different bars and different beers not getting ripped off in the process.
We can all recommend the shooting experience we had on Saturday afternoon. Truly amazing time had by all. Best £35 spent. A shooting competition at the end would have rounded off the day and made the whole event that extra bit special.
Quad biking was insane, all of us walked away with big smiles and the odd bruise. A fantastic way to spend 3 hours racing round a circuit against each other and a time trail to finish off.
We all loved Riga and would recommend it for a truly great Stag location. There’s plenty to do see and experience.
“Great weekend all went to plan, drinking and town was great, second time using LNoF, would recommend and use again, cheers again”
“The hotel was great (much better than expected after reading some reviews online!) i don't know where those reviews have come from as there wasn't a thing wrong with your hotel, exactly what we were looking for.
The reps were great fun to hang out with. The activities were good, and the prices were all reasonable. The only thing that got to most of us, was the dancers, as some in particular were incredibly offensive, calling a couple of my friends in particular names. But that wasn't a big deal as the rest of the holiday was great.
“Excellent weekend all-round, our guides were superb although perhaps a little lacking on directions and driving skills! Riga is a fantastic city, Skyline bar in particular is very nice and there is still loads of busy places to go out on a Sunday night.
All the activities were excellent, go-karting especially.All-in-all a fantstic weekend.”
“We arrived late on Friday night and after arriving at the hotel promptly arranged for one of the group to have drugs planted on him and arrested by Latvian special police. None of them were aware of this.
Had a great (long) night in the club until it closed at 6a.m. and went shooting the next day firing off 50 rounds each. Then we were taken about 45 minutes outside of Riga up to a cable car for a bungee jump (only two of us out of six jumped in the end!). Had brilliant guided bar crawl of old Riga, another night in the club until closing time and drank through Sunday until our flight late that night.
Riga is a brilliant place to go for a stag weekend!
“Our weekend to Riga was fantastic we enjoyed a couple of nights on the beer with the shooting package which was a great experience even if it's not normally your kind of thing. I read a couple of blogs about Riga warning of trouble and locals conning and even attacking English stag weekends we saw none of this. We had our lovely guide Julia who sorted out a table at a busy outside bar for the champions league final at our late request and we found the locals friendly and polite but then that is how we tried to treat them. Great destination fantastic activities made easy by Last Night of Freedom cheers guys”
“Great Stag weekend in Riga, all the activities and our accommodation were fantastic.
“Excellent weekend in Riga with 14 men, the staff at hotel are brilliant as ever....thank you for the arranged for us! Cheerio!”
“The Service provided was second to none. The Reps were very helpful and knowledgeable, and were always at hand for anything that we required.
A very efficient Service, great value for money and a diverse range of clubs, bars, and activities.
Thanks again for all your help and will definitely be using your services in the near future.”
“Really good experience with Last Night Of Freedom, Paul was helpful and is an asset to the company. Our accommodation was more like a hostel than a Three star hotel but equally as good. Go karting was great. Unfortunately the shooting of the fire arms was really cool but the guns were not as advertised!!!
Friendly guides and locals in Latvia. Would highly recommend.
“Just want to say a big thank you to you and your team we all had amazing time. Any of us cannot fault the whole trip. Thanks again Matt. ”
“As the stag said it himself, an unforgettable weekend!
You've probably heard what Riga has to offer... well, once you're there, they even have more!
“It was a great weekend thanks, I would definitely recommend you. Thanks ”

“The free breakfast was awful. One of the guides was great, the other wasn't great. ”
“The group had a first class weekend and a memorable time – we will all look back with big smiles.
Special thanks to all the LNOF team on the ground in Riga who were fun and very helpful.
“Good place, good communication here and in Riga, all good!”
“Go karting was very good fun. Laser quest/4d cinema again was good but Probably better suited to larger groups though and seemed quite expensive, the walking tour was good but again quite expensive while the hotel itself was great.”
“Lnof- were very helpful in getting the stag do arranged and offered impartial advice as to the destination.
Hotel- was very basic, but was expected. Hotel was clean and fit for purpose. Breakfast was surprisingly good and all hotel staff were really friendly despite there being a load of stag parties.
The bar was good. Had sports and beer all day and strippers from 4pm till 6am. Was expecting it to be a bit cheaper. Hotel did however lack a decent communal area apart from the bar. The bar was ok for this but too dark etc.
Go Karting was great. The venue had a bar and restaurant where we had some cheap decent food. The track was good fun and 30 minutes racing was more than enough.
This is just a steam room and cold dip. Was a shame that saunas or Jacuzzi were not available. However sitting in the steam room with the inclusive beer was very pleasant.
This included a 2 stripper show with the stag which was priceless and ended the activity really well.
A couple of the guides at the hotel were not that friendly, however after a chat with Lnof they made more of an effort. Apart from those couple the rest were fine.”
“A big thank you for a top weekend, the boys loved every part of the weekend, activities were fantastic and the hotel staff made every minute a joy to be there. Thanks !”
“Just came back from the best weekend ever! The hotel was clean and perfect for us, we had 6 rooms and all brilliant. The reps were all really fit, would take you to town for fags and money for free. Strip club on site was a brilliant touch, 24 lads all loved it!
Melena and Olga especially! The beer in Riga is cheap (1.50 a pint) and so are spirits. We did Clay Pigeon shooting, pub crawl and a prank arrest - the stag never been so scared in his life- from the moment I got in touch with LNOF to Ilina (also hot) dropping us back off at airport they were professional and accommodating. The bar has definitely been set by this company/hotel. Next guy doing best man duties is using this company now. Thanks guys. Brow
“Excellent service, the hotel is in a good location and is clean. Bobsleighing was quality, bar crawl girl was superb and you have the best looking taxi drivers I have ever seen.”
“We stayed at a great hotel which had friendly staff a great bar and was comfortable and clean which is all I would ask, I cannot comment on the breakfast as I nor any of my party made it. Probably something to do with the hours the bar is open:-)
We selected 3 activities, Target shooting which was ok but over to quick for my liking, Medieval banquet which was not as I expected at all, served by a man not a wench, not a banquet and no entertainment. and we also booked Snow mobile safari which was unfortunately cancelled due to weather but was replaced with bobsleigh which I would recommend to anyone, brilliant fun!!!
The weekend its self was a good one, Riga was good with much to do and all easily accessible.
All in all a good weekend that will be remembered by all.
“Last night of freedom services come highly recommended, airport transfers were flawless, quad biking was great fun with refreshments, drinks crisps burgers and a beer which was ample.
Bar guide on first night was really worth it took us to some bars we would never have found especially Habibi which was cool. Stayed at a great Hotel which was top draw and cheap, would definitely go back to Riga again
“All the lads had a great time, some had read reviews about the location, the hotel, trouble you may have in Latvia etc, but once on the ground everything couldn’t have gone better. We are heading back in March for another stag of one of the boys in the party!”
“Riga was the perfect destination. Everything was within walking distance and some really good venues for drinking.”
“Fantastic weekend, great service and well worth the money.”
“I can't fault Last Night of Freedom, the staff are so helpful and knowledgeable and the trip itself ran smoothly with all the activities transfers and nice clean hotel. My only regret is going to Riga as it's not the most Brit friendly place I've been to but fun was had nonetheless.”
“Top weekend. Everything you could want from a stag-do. Only complaint I can make is that the hotel was a little far from the centre of Riga, and that it actually wasn't any cheaper than a night our in the UK. Other than that, it was a great weekend.”
“We were very surprised at the standard of the accommodation, the girls looking after us were very helpful and all the activities we took part in were great.”
“Weekend went really well. Good points were constant contact from Darina or her staff to see where we were or if we needed taking anywhere. Also hotel was a good standard and gave us no hassles. Overall price was also very competitive.
Low points were having to pay for lads who didn’t turn up and 'kidnapping' that was planned not going ahead. Overall a great experience that was really enjoyed by all.”
“Hotel and staff were great, special mention must go to Jules, the girl behind the bar. She was a fantastic girl who really looked after us and made the stay at the hotel all the more enjoyable with her brilliant sense of humour and personality, not to mention she was also very pretty. All in all I would recommend Last Night of Freedom as a great company to book your stag weekend with.”
“A Fantastic weekend. The accommodation suited us perfectly, the events were well organised and very enjoyable. Riga was wonderful. There was a slight feeling that the objective was to extract as much money from us as possible while we were there, but not to the extent that it impacted our enjoyment.”
“Brilliant weekend! Everything went to plan and all the events were very well run and we were well looked after. The hotel was basic but was actually better than I thought for a speciality stag hotel. (Can’t complain about the onsite strip club!) The girls running it all were great as well. Overall a great experience. I would also say I was quite concerned before leaving about Riga itself as I had heard some horror stories but we had no issues at all and found it a great place to go. ”
“Everything about this trip was fantastic - the city was beautiful, the weather was hot and sunny all weekend, the hotel was perfect, the staff were friendly and helpful (and extremely tolerant to put up with 14 drunken Glaswegians!), the Latvian woman were sensationally stunning, the activities were ridiculously fun (quad biking & shooting), the organised pub crawl was some banter......just a fantastic weekend all around. Really struggle to find anything to criticise about it, every one of us had a great time and I’d recommend a weekend in Riga in a heartbeat as a top stag destination.”
“Really enjoyed the stag do in Riga. The Accommodation was a bit poor and bbq at activities was not up to much. The girls were great that looked after us and there was no problems with anything that LNoF had booked for us. Would recommend to anyone to go.”
“As a group of 7 lads we all had fantastic weekend. Hotel was good bar was fantastic and the people was very friendly.”
“Great weekend, Well organised activities and really good variety of bars. Guides were friendly and found us wherever we ended up. Many laughs and good memories for all of us.”
“A few issues with Scottish money when we arrived and a dirty taxi driver trying to charge over £100. Otherwise - pretty perfect. Thoroughly embarassed the stag and everybody had a ball. Thank you.”
“We had a brilliant weekend and we were well looked after by the girls all in all a great weekend. I would go back to RIGA in a flash, lovely city and people.”
“It could not have been any better. The Hotel, the venue and the activities were simply brilliant. Last Night of Freedom are simply wonderful at what they do and are in the business of making sure you have an experience you remember.”
“Wicked weekend, the shooting was great, but the strip club was in need of good looking women!”
“Weekend was excellent and very well organised. Shooting and pub crawl were great. The guides were terrific.
Only complaints would be that the hotel was freezing cold (no central heating on) and a lack of security in the bar meant that the strippers were intimidated by some lads.
“It was an awesome weekend, very well organized. All the staff were friendly, helpful and really got involved in the fun. The Hotel was very nice and in a very handy location. The staff at all the activities made the weekend one of our best ever. I would not only recommend the location for a stag party but also the company for making it a great one!”
“Highly recommend Riga as a stag destination. We arrived on the Friday to be greeted by the party bus inclusive of 10 bottles of champagne and 2 very nice strippers.
We chose to stay in the business district and the hotel had a very nice skyline bar. There was a group of 18 and we had no issues with the locals at all, they were all very friendly and helpful. Don’t believe the horror stories you hear on some websites and get booked up on a stag weekend in Riga!!!!!
“We had the Bar crawl, although the guide was helpful polite and attractive the choice of venues was not great. I could have done better with the research I done. She did however give us good advice on where to go for the rest of the trip. In short a poor bar crawl but we obtained good info from her.”
“Had a great time in Riga and would love to go back at some point. The only disappointment was the bar crawl on the Friday night. The pubs we were taken to were not quite our thing, the first 1 being a steak restaurant. Other than this the weekend was top class and would definitely recommend Last Night of Freedom to any future stags.”
“The accommodation was fantastic as was our tour guide Sasha. The Go Karting could have been a bit longer and when I’m told I’m getting chips with it, I expect a portion of good old English chips and not a bag of salt and vinegar crisps. Despite this we were fully entertained for the whole weekend and I’d recommend to anyone.
“Our weekend in Riga was superb in every possible way. The taxis from and to the airport and activities, made the whole experience hassle free and left us free to relax and enjoy the trip.
Last night of Freedom's staff were helpful and their location knowledge was second to none. The hotel, on their recommendation, was perfect for our needs and I would use their services again to book a holiday, never mind waiting for another stag do! Professional and helpful in every way.
“The whole weekend was amazing, and was helped loads with how everything was well organised.
The flexabillity of times and stuff like that was really good, otherwise we would have missed half of what we booked!!!”
“Seriously we had such a great time! We were a little apprehensive from some of the comments we had seen but when we got there and saw how everything worked it was a dream.
All of the staff who took us to and from events were chatty, friendly and fun. The staff at the hotel were also really helpful and gave us no hassle when we were wandering around drunk. The strippers were good value and friendly. The bar staff the same. The local area isn't that great, especially in the snow but we were mainly at activities which were brilliant (both snowmobiles and shooting/axe throwing). We all had great time and can't thank LNOF enough. Would definitely use them again.
“Great weekend! The staff were very accommodating, the activities were a blast and Riga was a great city. Good times had by all!”
“The hotel is a little ropey and the food is horrendously bad. Activities amazing, staff who looked after us very good, venue really good.”
“Riga was a great location and I'd go back tomorrow. If I'm completely honest the location of the hotel was disappointing and wasn't central, in fact it was in the middle of nowhere. Drivers and reps were however patient and good fun, especially with a large group of people who were probably quite rowdy
The spa location was fantastic and added something different to the trip (the boys loved it). However I was really disappointed that I'd paid for 5 massages that we didn't get to have because there was a 3-4hour wait.
Apart from that the stag weekend in Riga was fantastic, thanks for your help and patience in helping to construct the weekend. I would definitely recommend your company for future stag weekends.”
“Fantastic place for a stag, in fact, AMAZING! Superb bar crawl with a very friendly and helpful host. Didn’t make quad biking as we were too rough from the night before, so they offered to run us to the airport free of charge! Fantastic service, will definitely be using again!”
“The hotel was fine and clean but too far from city centre and clubs pubs etc, the drinks in the hotel were expensive compared to in town. The medieval feast was not worth the money. The vip steak dinner in hotel was good and worth the money. The girls on reception should be strippers rather than the strippers.”
“Riga just rocked, great hotel with friendly staff, cheap beer and great nightlife. Would totally recommend the whole package.”
“Bar crawl wasn't the best, shooting was mint, hotel was spot on, great staff.”
“It was a really well organised weekend with lots of activities as well as drinking, lap dancing and lots of friendly people and hosts.”
“Good weekend paintballing was excellent.”
“Had a fantastic weekend!
The service provided by the reps was amazing & we were really looked after! Choice of activities & value was also extremely good! Will def recommend to anyone else planning a stag do!
“The hotel is an awesome place for stags. I've Bern told the breakfasts were shocking. I never made it to any. The hotels lap dancers are the best in Riga and cheapest. The hotel is run by women who will take you anywhere.
The activities were great. We did quads and shooting. Both times you feel like your going to hostel. People say Riga isn't safe, there lying. You can get beat up in any city but if you’re sensible you won't. I walked round the city lost and pissed and nothing happened to me. Last Night of Freedom have done a cracking job.
“Amazing weekend, stag had the time of his life! Paintballing and bar crawl were great. Can definitely see myself visiting Riga in the future!”
“I thought the activities were brilliant. Go-karting was brilliant and shooting was scary but very good. Also the Latvian hostess was really nice and very helpful. The whole day went very well and I would definitely recommend your company to others. Thanks very much!”
“Paintballing was the best day of the weekend by far.
“Was a good weekend but not many nice places for food, while this was a low priority by the end of the weekend it started to be a problem. The place we ate in on the pub crawl was poor and expensive and we did not realise we were going to eat so some of us had already eaten.”
“Great weekend had by all the party. The most beautiful women in Europe. The UK can't compare but I'm still wandering around wanting to stick 20 lats in the knickers of every pretty girl I see.”
“I had a thoroughly brilliant weekend. It was well organised, efficiently run and great fun.
My only complaint is that I believe the organisers of the go-karting ripped us off 50 quid for allegedly breaking one of their cars.
Thank you so much for the best stag do I have ever been on. Cheers, Andy leary
“Had a good time, the activities were really good fun and the guides we had were wonderful.”
“Top class venue, great activities, stunning ladies, the stag had a fantastic weekend (considering he thought he was going to Nottingham!)”
“Riga is a great place, the people are friendly and there are plenty of places to eat and drink, mostly within walking distance of the Hotel. The girls who work at the hotel are really helpful and hardworking, they gave the best service I have ever had at any hotel because of their positive attitude and willingness to help in any way they can. ”
“Main problem was accommodation, and it's location. Other than that was enjoyable, and guides, for most part, very good. Riga was excellent and, with exception of area around hotel, and no facilities like a bar, lounge etc., at hotel, we enjoyed the experience. On a personal basis I may visit again for a normal holiday.”
“A great weekend which was enjoyed by everyone. Riga is a great place and the nightlife is second to none, if you want to be out until 6am, roll back to your hotel and then be up a couple of hours later to take part in activities this is the place for you.
The activities we took part in were, mostly, excellent with the shooting and the go-karting being particular highlights. One last point Latvian women are stunning and I mean drop dead, mouth open, tongue on the floor stunning. Riga rocks!
“Booking my first stag do was a little daunting to start with, but once I got on the phone to Paul at Last Night of Freedom I realised that perhaps this wasn’t as bad as I imagined it to be.
Riga was Ace, the weather was amazing, the drinks were reasonable, the hotel was quality, the staff were easy on the eye but not that easy to talk to, apart from victoria who at least half of the group including me would have definitely brought her home with us. Victoria took us on the bar crawl and then the following day took us on the activities which were fantastic.
We did the shooting mega pack and the quad biking, and after speaking to other stag groups it turned out we picked what seemed to be the best activities available. If you’re looking for a awesome weekend away with plenty of beer, plenty of stunning eye candy and some pretty amazing clubs then Riga is the place.
All I will say is as with any Eastern European country, there are places that you should avoid and you will find trouble if you go looking for it, but if your sensible with where you go and sensible-ish when you’re in these places then you will have a fantastic stag weekend.
As for hotels if you do choose Riga then there is only one place you should stay and that’s the place we stayed, a hotel with a strip club down stairs, air con in the rooms and a full female staff.
“Thirteen lads from 18 to 30 from Scotland went and had a ball staff were great and up for a laugh the beer was on tap nearly 24/7 and it was a good local beer the hotel was amazing and most boys never left it.
I did however and found the city centre to be awesome and the nightlife is superb everyone didn’t want to leave and we all said we will definitely be back, maybe when the pound is a bit stronger though!!!
“I have to put 10 for everything because we all thought the weekend was fantastic from the guides, to the activities, to the hotel to the nightlife. Extremely well organised, thanks for a great time!!!!
More than happy to recommend you to anyone we all know. Again, nice one
“Quality venue for a STAG do! Guided bar crawl would have been better on night one as we had already discovered the bars by then, but great place, great people and great fun!”
“Outdoor go-karting was great fun, shooting plus was good but don't expect a classy venue. Quad biking was good fun but didn't last as long as I had expected. The bbq that went with the quad biking wasn’t great. Had one tiny sausage in some dry bread along with a bag of crisps and a warm can of beer.
The steak meal with strippers was awesome! I expected rubbish quality food but it was lovely. We went on a Sunday at 8pm and were the only ones there which I would highly recommend. Worth paying the extra for the lesbian show! Casino was a waste of money, on the plus side, all the reps are as hot as the rest of the Latvian girls.
“Had a fantastic weekend in Riga, mostly ran smoothly and the staff at the hotel were keen to help. The accommodation was basic but we knew what to expect given the price and the fact it was a stag hotel. ”
“19 Scottish lads went, all with a seed a doubt in their heads of what we were going into after hearing all the bad press about Riga. 19 very happy Scottish lads returned safe and sound with not a bad word to be said about Riga. Activities, accommodation, nightlife was all excellent, hats off to the staff at the hotel, it is perfect for a stag weekend, can’t ask of anymore from them, and also big thanks to Last Night of Freedom for an excellent weekend. Will definitely recommend dealing with you guys for any future stag parties that I may venture on.
“What a fantastic weekend we all had, from the moment we was picked up (and given free beer!), to our sad farewell to all the good looking ladies of Riga..!! From strip clubs, bar crawls, shooting and karting everyone in our party (party all night long) had a excellent time... We had heard a few dodgy stories before we went but after touring around on our own at points we never see anything like this, the locals where friendly ;-) (and very fit) the food good and the drinks very well priced, the general mood from all of us is we will party next year in Riga!!!”
“I have never had such a fun 4 days and it was down to your help and patience with my constant nagging. Furthermore I wanted to praise the staff used in Riga.
At the medieval dinner the waiter told us the guides had paid for three free beers each when I only thought it was one, and then in the strip club (that the fantastic stag arrest climaxed) a friend of mine lost his wallet and one of your members of staff rang the taxi/minibus to inform him they had it so he could collect it, which was a lovely jesture.
The gentleman who did the quad biking made it a lot of fun, and had a lot of patience with the not so good drivers (me) and the female guides were not only very sexy, but very polite and helpful. I will recommend Last Night of Freedom very highly to my future stag friends.”
“Overall our long weekend in Riga was awesome, the City is scenic during the day and a lot of fun in the evenings, the weather was fantastic, some good bars and some good value restaurants, we had three nights on the beers and we all enjoyed the weekend.
On the negative side, most of the bars we were taken to on our bar crawl we pretty much empty which was a shame, with quite a lot of walking in between which hampered the drinking. Also our party bus transfer seemed to end prematurely as it only lasted about 25mins, it wasn't a great way to start the weekend.
The clay shooting was great, a lot of fun and the general feedback from the weekend was that it went really well, the hotel was in a fantastic location for heading out at night and finding our way home!
“The transfers to/from the airport and our accommodation were perfect and all the staff involved friendly. The bob sleighing was ok, the shooting was excellent and more fun that we were anticipating.
Our bar guide was less perfect. She took us around to the designated venues but wasn't all that enthusiastic or friendly. Perhaps she was just having an off night.
“It was one to remember...the stag liked it, couldn't get that smile of his face during the whole of the weekend. Great organisation, great city, great nightlife and what to say about all those amazing looking girls. Keep up the good work, guys!”
“Overall the whole event was fantastic. The city of Riga is beautiful with lots of great places to drink and have fun. The hotel was perfect and the Olympic bobsleigh was a lot of fun. We were lucky to have great weather which made it all the more enjoyable. We did experience an early evening unprovoked attack by some locals who obviously don't appreciate stag parties coming to Riga. We didn't let this ruin our trip but it should serve as a warning to others to keep a low profile and to stick to the main streets within your group.”
“Good venue, if a little bit too far from the town. The town of Riga was pleasant enough, as were the girls, and the lap dancing girls in the hotel were great! The clubs were good also. Take a mixture of clothes as weather is really temperamental!”
“The Shooting activity that we did didn’t last as long as we thought it might. The guns themselves were quite impressive.
Quad biking was brilliant :-) I would recommend this to any groups that are thinking of doing it.
“The weekend was a great success, the weather held out and there was some sunshine.
The food was good and the go karts and paintball were great. Bobsligh was a bit dissapointing as we wanted to go from the top, but was a good laugh anyway.
Julliet, our rep, was great but all the woman in Riga need to smile more.
After everything your hear about Riga as a stag destinations there was not one sign of any trouble towards us or anyone else, everyone was more than helpful.
And Id like to say thank you for arranging a great stag do, Im just still feeling a little worse for ware two days after landing back in london.
“14 of us went and 14 came back!!! Everyone had an amazing time. Hotel was fantastic and had everything we needed. Only small moan if you like was that the hotel prices are a bit high compared to what you can get elsewhere in the town but still didn't put anyone off!!!
Would definitely recommend Last Night of Freedom and Riga to anyone was fantastic service from start to finish and they were even superb in the event that the stupid Icelandic volcano had disrupted our plans. Cheers for a great weekend!!!!!
“The Last Night of Freedom staff were amazing, they made the stag.”
“Great time had by all, strip club in hotel was really good and we did not get ripped off, the dancers will have a laugh with you.
The included breakfast wasn't great and is not worth getting up for, the bar staff were also quite slow.
The bob sleigh & Go Karting was excellent, the pool party was good although the pool is a tiny plunge pool in the hotel, the sauna was good though so its more like a sauna party. The strippers at the pool party horridly left when some of the group took photos of them. Would defiantly recommend a visit and having a stag do there, was a really good crack.
“Riga was great as a destination. Hotel served it purpose although the large shared rooms wasn't great. The hotel having its own strip bar was a fantastic idea - every Stag Hotel should have one - it was a great way to end the evening.
First night Bar Crawl was a bit dissappointing. We were taken to some quiet bars and then seated away from everyone else - seemed that they wanted the Stag Parties away from everyone else. The night club we ended up in was excellent even if it did play only local Music. It had some of the best looking women I have ever seen.
Overall Riga was great and everyone had a fantastic time.”
“Latvia was a brilliant experience and a very good stag do. However due to the weather it meant that we had to change from an Hour of quad biking, BBQ and beers to Go-Karting with no food and beers this dissapointed everbody.
We also went bob sleighing but when we arrived at the activity we found that we were only in a soft bobsled.”
“The clubs in Riga were wicked and we couldn't have asked for a better stag do for our mate procter(who is now missing an eyebrow).The Hotel if you can call it a hotel (more like a strip club with bedrooms) was the best thing since sliced bread, cold beer etc etc.
We spent 3 days there and really didn't want to leave. from the Lovely guides, Great activities, to the GEORGEOUS dancers(careful you might just fall in love). Definately be going again!! ”
“The activites that we booked through last of freedom were fantastic !! The guides in Riga were always there on time and very patient as some of the lads were not always as punctual.
We booked a Stag Arrest and they couldn't have gone out their way more to make sure it went off without any hitches !! And needless to say, as all girls in Riga, they were...well lets say in minus temperatures, HOT!!”
“Great location, was wary abut this being over run with stags and generally being ripped off from what I had read previously on the internet. This was not the case at all.
The Latvians by nature are not the most friendly but that is the way they treat each other not just tourists - you just have to accept that they are the way they are. Still that doesn't mean they were rude, we got help when lost and advice when asking from numerous locals.
Great time had by all our party.”
“On the whole a great weekend, maybe kicked the arse out of the drinking on the first night though!! Friendly & helpful hosts, and all stunners!!
Looking to return in summer for a weekend even though it's not for a stag do!
The only negative point was that we booked the quad bikes which included bbq & beer but because of the weather this was not available. We were offered either shooting or indoor karting with no bbq, doesn't really compare. Also the 3 man room was quite small with a tiny toilet/shower room.”
“I loved the naked girls”
“Amazing weekend! All the guys will go on holiday again next year!!! Top drawer stuff!”
“The bobsleighing was incredible and it was definately worth while having an organised bar crawl. However the hotel accomodation was fairly poor and too far out of the main town. Despite this it was a fantastic weekend.”
“It was enjoyable but more expensive than I thought ”
“Most snow I have ever seen! most Vodka I have ever consumed. Very pleased with hotel - better than expected. Activities were excellent despite not being allowed to do the quad biking. Shooting very cool, indoor gokarts good fun. Reps very nice girls. One of the clubs we went to was rubbish, the other one we visited was much better.
“The Bob Sleighing and Party Bus were awesome! Overall, Riga was a great venue for the event.”
“One of the best weekends of my life!!”
“Great weekend, fantastic service all round. The boys loved it! Will definitely be recommending this to others... ”
“All in all a great weekend, the accomodation was clean and tidy with safes provided in each room which is a bonus.
The reception staff on a whole were very helpful (especially Ilona) but found a few could be quite abrupt.”
“The staff in Latvia are absoloutely fantastic, the hotel is perfect for any stag, the city itself is expensive but the clubs are insane!!”
“I would say our group of lads were very niave about stag weekends until this one. Now we plan to make regular stag trips with or without a potential groom in tow! We'd even consider coming back to Riga for a repeat visit! Thank you very much for an awesome weekend.”
“This was one of the best weekend i have ever had. Was unsure what to expect at first after reading the mixed reports on the web but my Last Nite of Freedom was amazing.
I would recommend the hotel we stayed in as I dont think a group of lads could not stay in a better place. We had 2 bar crawls which I would recommend you do as we got taxied around by you as we did not have a clue where to go. cant wait for my mates stag do, i am gone try to get him to come back there.
“Weekend was enjoyed by all. The activities were well organised and the girls were really helpful. Riga as a city was a good call!”
“Awesome weekend of non-stop fun, staff were friendly and helpful and the accomodation was clean and well furnished.
I recommend the hotel bar and the shooting package!”
“The whole weekend was tip top, from when we got there to when we left we had fun.
The hotel we stayed in was really good, facilities were good and rooms were clean with the added bonus of the bar/stripclub. Shooting is well recommended, the girls running everything were really friendly and couldn't have asked for more.
With the exchange rate the way it is, the Latt makes it more expensive than you first thought. Dont be put off with the horror stories either, just KEEP your wits about you. Thanks Last Night of Freedom for making my mates stag do, THE ONE TO REMEMBER!”
“Excellent service and value.
To be honest my expectations were very low due to negative comments around the web, but I don't know where these people stayed as the hotel is excellent, much cleaner and more efficient than many west europe hotels.
Service couldn't have been any better if anyone tried and as for the steak served in the hotel, well what can I say, as divine as the girls that tried their best to turn my attention away from the said steak. Hosts were excellent and the activities great value for money. This place is highly recommeneded and we will be coming back ”
“We all had a fantastic weekend from start to finish, great place to go, all the staff in Riga were absolutely brilliant! The communication and help we had from the Last Night of Freedom staff in England was also second to none. Thankyou so much for making my mates stag do one to remember!”
“We had a great and unforgetable weekend in riga! I'll to come back soon!
“Riga is a great city and the bobsleighing was brilliant.
Everyone had a great trip, thanks for everyones help at Last Night of Freedom”
“Riga is a good place to party”
One observation: We’ve been with you before (to Wroclaw) and then we had one guide who was with us for the whole weekend, from the transfers to the activities and back to the airport. We got to know her quite well and it added to the personal touch. In Riga, we had a different guide every time, so it wasn’t quite the same. No criticism of the Riga guides either, they were all lovely.
The location of our hotel was excellent – better than the other hotel we visited, the one with the strip club. Having the strip club on-site would have been good, but on balance our hotel was better placed for the old town.
“The activities were well organised and supervised. Of importance, the local advise and information provided by our Guide was inavaluable in many ways!”
“The best time I have ever had in my life RIGA what a place any best men thinking of organising for their stag look no further.
“Having kicked off the arrangements with Paul at Last Night of Freedom in the UK, who it has to be said is excellent at what he does, I was then transferred over to the Riga based side of the company.
Transfers to all activites were a little longer than expected, but once there the Bobsleighing was unexpectedly quick (but not particularly pleasant with a large hangover) and the open air go-karting was very basic but good. There was also a convenient lake close by into which the stag went.
The hotel was very basic if you want a pool don't stay here, however, if you want reasonable cheap beer (2 Lats/pint) and lap-dancing until 8am, then stay here. The worse part about the hotel was the rooms. They are very very basic. There is a safe which was good (and you didn't have to pay to use it) but at the end of the day you get what you pay for.
One of the most annoying parts was in night clubs. Bottled beer advertised at 1.50 lat, but once discovering that we were English they banged the prices up to 6 lats. Very annoying but we had a good night anyway. You'll probably know anyway,but don't wander off on your own. People did get mugged while they were over there. Be sensible and you'll be fine.”
“Latvia is a great place for a Stag Do. Plenty of bars and nightclubs to choose from at reasonable prices. Lastnight of Freedom were fantastic. They ensured the weekend went without a hitch and were always on hand if you wanted any advice. A first class service from a first class company. Highly recommended
“The nightclub we were taken too was brilliant- the best club ive ever attended and easily the equal of those in Ibiza.
Rumours about the Latvians hating the english were greatly exagerated, we met nothing but friendly people.
“Thank you for helping me arrange my friend Andy's stag do. The location, activities, hotel and nightlife were all fantastic.
We did however, have ana excellent time in Riga and would definitely recommend using Last Night of Freedom again!
“Fantastic weekend! So glad we booked with Last Night Of Freedom as everything went very smoothly...most definitely going back to Riga again!!!!”
“We had a fabulous weekend.”
“All in all we had a great time, the hotel was well positioned, the guides helpful and the place really nice and clean (really surprised most of the group, they had read some bad stuff about Riga).
The best part for all in the group was without doubt the shooting, would insist everyone goes if you still feel like a big kid at heart. We ate and drank locally and found a nice square where drinks were about £1.30 a pint.
Many thanks to Last Night Of Freedom for all the help in making our stag do go so well.”
“Riga is a great city. We tried out several places on the "Dangerous list". That was a bit like drinking in the "evil axes" However it turned out fine for us all.”
“Great place for any stag group - probably the best I've been on. Great pubs/clubs and women. Do your research on where to avoid! ”
“Had a great time in riga, don't to run a tab up for drinks pay as you go as there are some places that will chance there luck with the bill”
“Activities and ground staff were excellent!”
“Our tour guide Olesja was excellent. She was very informative, friendly and happy to move at the pace we wanted to.
“Staff were fantastic and a real credit to their / your company. Hotel was fine and suited purposes. Shooting was fun but ultimately a bit pricey for 15 mins. Nightlife was enjoyable, saw no trouble and had a great time.”
“The weekend was great we had great weather which is allways a bonus. The Last Night of Freedom reps looked after us very well and were always on time to pick us up. many thanks”
“Our contact was extremely helpful and professional and took our comments and wishes into account on tailoring our weekend. Great venues, great people.”
“We had a amazing time in Riga! the nightlife was brillant and i was supprised how friendly the locals were. All in all the best weekend ever!!”
“First of all we all had a great time in Riga and the local reps were excellent - always picked us up on time and very patient.
Only negatives were the meal, the food wasn't great plus weak beer.
We were told the Bobsleigh had finished for the winter but in fact it is still running and luckily we managed to get a late booking - well worth it! All-in-all a memorable trip.”
“Good service by LNOF. Removed the hassle from organising the weekend and ensured that we had a good time - while remaining safe.
The tour guides were helpful, on time, spoke good English and friendly. Many thanks”
“It was great crack the LNOF guides and contacts are essesntial in Riga”
“Riga is the perfect location for a stag weekend - it has everything you could possibly want.
There are still some no-go areas though. We never came near any of them though because we were being constantly looked after by Last Night of Freedom! Not only is using LNoF a recommendation, it's essential to make sure you have a great time AND stay out of trouble.”
“Although Riga was not our first choice venue for our Stag weekend, we could not have ended up in a better city. The people were great, helpful, and share a similar lust for having a great time. It goes without saying the woman are amazingly hot, but in the local clubs we found them to be pretty social as well.
I must mention our tour guide Ivo. He was an absolute Super Star. He made a great Stag Weekend into the most unforgettable experience. His local connections to clubs, pubs, resturants, etc made our experience all the more better. We were taken to places we'd never have found ourselves.
Ivo made life for me as the best man so easy, no stress, good local knowledge and was great to talk to.
I would highly recommend Riga to anyone who has a lust for life! No sooner were we home, we were looking at flights back later this year for a bit a Golf in the Summer!
A big, big thankyou to LNOF and Ivo for making this the very best Stag Weekend. The Stag is both a broken man, but a man who hasn't stopped taliking about the whole experience since we got back.”
“Having had LNOF recommended by a friend, I am delighted to report that I too would suggest their services to anyone.
From the first phone call, Paul was efficient, listened to what we wanted and did his best to accomodate our needs. They were also keen to be as competitive as they could with other companies and for this reason I was happy to give them my business.
Before we went to Riga, I had hugely reassuring email chats with their rep Ivo and he proved to be a memorable, professional and incredible asset to the extended LNOF family. Having the group looked after so that we did not need to worry about anything was so reassuring - and meant we could truly relax while Ivo 'had our backs'! He is a credit to himself and a top man.
The boys in my party were suitably exhausted after an awesome, fun-packed weekend. I'd highly recommend the bobsleigh, the shooting and of course, the strip limo on arrival - it kicked the weekend off beautifully. Ivo was also happy to improvise when we told him we had to watch the 6 Nations somewhere!
My thanks to LNOF and their professional service - it couldnt actually have gone any better and I am still laughing from one of the best weekends I've had. Cheers.”
“As the best man I was a bit worried before we arrived about the reputation of Riga as being somewhere where you could get ripped off easily. Unfortunately this did seem to be the case but onyl when people disappeared into the more dubious venues by themselves or in pairs.
Stay in a group and this a great location - the beer is cheap, accomodation is good value, people are friendly and the women are hot.”
“A great venue and our guide was fantastic!”
Never ventured into any of the dodgy places thanks to LNOF.
Local girls are naturally stunning as was our guide Lana.
Activities good too, can recommend indoor karting and canoeing although this takes about 3 hours. Also other activities you can do where canoeing ends include a (safe) sort of luge and zorbing.
Club was pretty good although a few of the girls were seen hanging around our hotel lobby later on!
Bar crawl a bit disappointing as some of the places were a bit quiet but then our guide got us into a club which was all locals apart from us and pretty good too!
Would recommend Riga, only problem we had was getting people up for the second night after going mad on the first! Follow LNOFs advice and you should be fine. ”
“Strip limo was great, highly recommened. The bars we went to were fantastic and felt very safe the whole night but dont be fooled to think its cheap same price for beer as uk.The club LNOF arranged was good.
The next day we were booked for the karting and were picked up by the rep again. The karting was great.
All in all I like riga, it's got great bars, clubs and resturants and i would recommened it but make sure you have a good guide as paid for and check out the steak house on the main square.”
“As the best man on the trip, I was dreading the usual hassle of arranging everything and trying to keep ten lads together for the entire weekend.
Last Night of Freedom and our local tour guide in Riga did the hard work for me and kept us out of trouble, in the best bars and restaurants and made sure we had an enjoyable weekend. Thanks and best wishes.”
“We all had a fantastic time in Riga... Booking through "Last Night Of Freedom" was very easy and would recommend them to anyone.
When we were in Riga we were looked after very well by Katrina, our rep. When another friend gets married, I'm sure we'll use your company again. ”
“Katerina, our guide in Riga was brilliant! Couldnt have asked for a better guide. The activities where fantastic and the weekend went without a single issue or problem. Will certainly recommend you guys in the future and without a doubt would recommend Riga as a destination! Thanks”
“Excellent weekend and bobsleigh good laugh and something different”
“Brilliant weekend although be very careful with your credit/debit cards! As a woman on a stag do, I felt very safe in Riga - would definitely recommended it as a destination.”
“The hotel is right and the centre. The bars around the old district are excellent and they don't appear to shut.
Bobsleighing was a great idea and the guides were good.
We'd all go back as there is plenty we didn't see, and bars we didn't go in!”
“I really would advise big groups not to go here as it is just so dangerous. there seems to be a constant threat of getting a right hander and getting robbed by locals, bouncers, police and taxis. plus side was the activities and your staff. excellent. hotel and weather was another bonus”
“I'm pretty sure I talk for the whole group when I say we all had an awesome couple of days. From the moment we arrived, our guide made us all feel welcome and filled us in about everything we needed to know for our weekend in Riga - which turned out to be invaluable after talking to a few other visitors to the town.
Riga itself is a beautiful city, with plenty of drinking establishments and amazing sights, which was undoubtedly helped by the mediterranean feel and the 18 hours of daylight we had in early July.
We wanted to have some time to ourselves, so we only took part in one day activity (karting) which was well organised, and great fun, albeit not long enough!! I personally thought the breathalyser was a good touch!
Everybody congratulated me on organising an entirely satisfying break (little did they know I hardly did anything!”
“The Stag had the best weekend of his life. Not only the Stag, there were 13 of us and everyone said it was the best organised and generally the best stag do they had been on! The guide was excellent, the activities excellent, far too much beer, not enough sleep etc. The Stag liked the stripper meal although I think he was a little afraid!!! Brilliant!”
“Great weekend, really good activities”
“Riga was a quality stag do from start to finish. The venue was exceptional and the Last Night of freedom representatives were outstanding throughout. Highly recommended ”
“The activities were good. food and beer was ok, we were not told the banquet was in a night club we thought it was in a private resturant but the dancers were hot. Shooting was good but still a little expensive ”
“Riga is a top spot for stag/ hen do's, in fact its just a great place generally. The night life as expected was top draw. However on my stag weekend we did encounter some problems, on the first night one of my friends had his credit cards cloned, (my advice is only take cash out, go back to the hotel for more money if needed)on the 2nd night the same friend got drugged and went missing for 8 hours. Be aware of the "Pink Panther" club and the "Pub" next door, (they're in the main plaza) we are pretty sure this is where it happened. Also be aware of th Russians conning drinks out of you, they always pick the most expensive drinks, (always look at the menus in bars before you buy drinks. Never work up a tab, just buy the drinks your going to have there and then. If you work up a tab and don't have enough money they will try to make you pay with a card in the bar..... DON'T! If anything go to a cash point. Try to go to bars/ clubs that don't have bouncers on the outside, the more reputable ones have the bouncers on the inside.”
“What a weekend! Brilliant time was had by all. Would defo go again!”
“We had a great weekend. We were met by our rep in Latvia even though we landed early. It was a 10 minute transfer to a hotel, that was far better than I was expecting. the hotel had all the mod cons as well as a cheap mini bar in each room.
We headed off into town and the nightlife in the old town is very cool. The beer and girls weren't as cheap as expected (are they ever?) but what ya gonna do. Anyone worried about trouble shouldn't fear, it's easy to find but only if you go looking for it. i.e. don't touch a stripper if they say don't touch. We saw a guy get carted away, but you know he did something dodge. All in all, great trip, great service and will recommend LNOF again...”
“After booking Riga I did some research on the net which lead me to believe it was a bit of a dodgey place, with many groups getting into trouble. I found Riga to be no trouble at all. We did stick to all the main bars and clubs but these are the bigger, better and busier ones anyway. Had a wicked laugh, hotel was great for the price. I'd also recomend the night club you use for a top club to go to.”
“The activity (indoor karting) was in a superb & modern complex, with clean facilities and a great track, however the instruction & explaination of the rules/race type/itineraty was poor. The karting complex seemed to be run efficiently - i would say too efficient.
Airport/hotel transfers were on time. The minibus was modern & clean. The rep, Elina was friendly.
Riga is a beautiful place with many types of bars/restaurants for all tastes. Prices were roughly the same as the uk - Riga have realised the value of tourist money & are exploiting this.....Beware of taxis
Overall, a good place to visit. I have been very satisfied with the customer service from lastnightoffreedom. In particular Paul was particulary helpful. ”
“Great stag location. No longer cheap but great fun. Would thoroughly recommend taking the bar crawl on first night as a way to find the decent venues. Once our guide, Lana, had worked out what we were looking for she took us to the best places in town well away from the rip-offs. Kalku Varti is a great club in the centre of town. Not too big and packed out with the local types you want to see ;-)
Shooting was excellent. Karting was a real hit - we expected some rough dirt track but were pleasantly surprised with the modern well-equipped indoor centre with a fast track and fast cars. Thankfully we all managed to pass the breathalyser test - just!
All in all a super weekend. 5*.”
“Lana was a friendly, excellent host, who worked hard to make the event a success.
The Hotel was good , and reasonably placed for trips into the city by tram.Shame the staff did not smile, and drinks were expensive.
The club we went to was well run, and had no problems, but drinks were dearer than UK!- So much for a cheap weekend in a Balic State!
“Delighted we went to riga. Great place, great women, great bars - would go again.”
“Location was great, good organisation and services overall and very professional (especially the guide on Sunday). ”
“Our host, Lana, was excellent.
“The weekend was brilliant! havent had fun like that for a while! the shooting is a must & what a experience! Our guide was called Svetlana and she was very helpful in finding the best bars & clubs on the bar crawl.
And what a great hotel, the bar inside is amazing! I also lost my wallet as soon as we got to the hotel so Svetlana rang the minibus guy and he brought is straight back as I left it in the bus! and all the money and cards were in tact!(very nice people!).
Basically, go to Riga with Last night of Freedom!”
“We had a fantastic weekend. Everyone really enjoyed it and our guide Lana made sure we had a great time. Please praise her for our great weekend. If I were to organise another Stag Event I will defnetley be using your services. Thank you for all your help and services.
“Type Stag party in a search engine and you come back with hundreds of thousands of results. What a headache?! Fortunately Last Night of Freedom was just the relief for my headache!
I had heard great things about this company from friends who had been on LNoF parties before and they certainly didn’t disappoint this time round.
Their professional, friendly and importantly consultative approach ensured that my brother (the stag) and his 15 mates had a weekend never to be forgotten! Everything went as planned as per the LNoF itinerary, which meant all we needed to do was turn up on time, drink, eat, shoot from an AK47, crawl around some pubs with a local guide, gorp at some amazingly beautiful Eastern European women, Go Karting, Spa and pool (with beers), and leave with a head full of stories and a lot of laughs. 10/10 LNoF, thank you very much.”
“We were deeply impressed by the perfect services, punctuality and our host Vita in Riga.
We can only say .... WELL DONE !!! We will absolutely recommend "Last Night of Freedom"
We had a great time. Thanks a lot to the whole team!!!
“Firstly I would like to say how easy you guys made it for me (The best man) to organise the trip. Your website is very well presented and made it easy for us to choose what we wanted to do.
When we arrived in Riga we were met by the guide (Katrina) and taken to our hotel, which we were really pleased with, nice location and nice and clean.
Katrina then took us around town going into a number of different bars which gave us a good guide to the city as well. Would recommend a guided bar crawl on the first night – Not they we remembered much the next day.
We were then picked up early to start the activities. Both the paintball and bob sleigh were excellent, the guys at the paintball were very professional and made it a real fun day.
I would have to recommend the Bobsleigh though – It is something that everyone should try.
Medieval Banquest in the evening was a nice simple meal to line the stomach for the night ahead and was a good experience.
All in all we had a fantastic time. Our guide Katrina was excellent and really made the trip what is was. So many thanks to her.
“First, thanks for your first class service on assisting me in arranging what turned out to be a great week end! 15 Scots had an absolute ball however the weekend did have its ups and downs! The ups first.
Great host Marija who was first class and looked after us with great respect for most of our trip. Her organising skills were great and i ask that you pass on my thanks 15 fold.
The events were also great and actually made the trip, Bobsleigh 5* fun, paintball 5* fun apart from the running STAG (me) covered in bruises, Shooting 5* fun.The downs, Well!!! We chose to arrange our own unguided bar crawl on the second night (big mistake) as after several drinks 4 small groups were loured into strip clubs and robbed! I know the warnings were there from Last Night of Freedom however one could never expect the robbery and threats from these clubs. I personally was involved in a exit doorway scuffle where one of my mates was marched to an atm for 200 lats even after i had bought all the drink at the bar! Another was bullied by the police at the door for 150 lats for a bottle of wine in the PINK PANTHER BAR/CLUB. The sourest was the one lonesome pissed guy who has had 900 lats and 500 lats swiped on his debit card and another 900 rejected by my companies VISA (he works for me) by BAR ANGELICA’S after he was there for half an hour or so!!!!! We are perusing this with his bank and the fraud squad however fear little hope of getting anything back.Marija took us on our bar crawl to a bar which was great however everyone we spoke to who was on the same Ryanair flight as us, 3 other stag nights had exactly the same stories with one group nursing nasty injuries where they had no money to pay!! Disgusting is the word i use to describe these people now.
To summarise; I would recommend Last Night of Freedom to anyone who is looking for Stag/Hen assistance as complimented above, however, i would strongly recommend NOT going to RIGA!”
“The weekend went exactly to plan.
Your guide met us at the airport and took us to the hotel then straight out to the strip dinner. It was an excellent night.The next day the guide was exactly ontime to take us to the bobsligh which again was outstanding. Saturday evening she took us around the city on a pub crawl then into a nightclub. All the places we went to were stag friendly and a great atmosphere.
“We booked the shooting and the pub crawl. We were picked up at the right time and treated in a very friendly and efficient manner by a very pretty young lady.
The shooting at first seemed a bit tame until we heard the ear splitting boom and saw the flame shoot out of the muzzel of the kalashnikov after that we had a bit more respect for the guns. It was great.
The pub crawl could have started a bit earlier (but then it did give us the opportunity to eat) The girl - a hairdresser and part time finance student- very pretty and pleasant. We went to pubs and clubs that we would not have found ourselves and everyone thought the evening was a great success. Initially some people thought the price was a bit much, but once things got going most people though it was good value.
A great time had by all.”
“The weekend went pretty much wihtout a hitch and everyone had a great time.The guide was excellent providing help and information beyond what's typically expected. Riga was great fun too and a must for stag-dos!only minor problem was with payment as I paid by cash and was overcharged (but the Riga folk were quick to rectify before I was even aware of the problem, so that ws great)...thumbs up all round really!”
“Excellent service and Riga was a very good destination. Although be careful if you make the stag do any embarassing stunts in public - they took the public nudity very seriously and we spent an afternoon at the police station and had to pay a fine.”
“PRE-FLIGHT - Both Denzil and Elina were absolutely fantastic in arranging and checking details for the holiday. Can't praise either of them enough, they really made the whole booking process so easy. 10 out of 10!
FLIGHT - Very good flight time both ways, seemed to go very quickly. No issues at the airport and our Rep, Maria, was there to meet us as specified. 1 of our party didn't make it, through no fault of Last Night of Freedom, though we will be making a complaint to the airline.
TRANSFERS - Good driver (with a cracking moustache) - No complaints at all, got us from A to B every time with no hassle at all, even with several persons having some serious bodily odour/ gas issues.
HOTEL - Perfect for what we needed. Ideal location, lovely beds, good bathroom, tolerant staff (especially as some of the group were a bit rowdy!) There were some dodgy locals nearby who tried to drag us into various places of disrepute, but we managed to ignore them and we made our way to the decent venues nearby which Maria had recommended.
FREE-FALLING - Absolutely brilliant! Everyone loved it and it was bloody hilarious when various people landed on their arse or started doing acrobatics. Staff at the place were very professional and attentive to our concerns/needs. Top stuff
MEDIEVAL MEAL - Bit of a let down. The venue itself was great and clearly had a lot of history and atmosphere. However, the food wasn't great and, in hindsight, probably wasn't the best place for a dozen lads with bellies full of beer. Especially with locals/tourists trying to enjoy a civilised meal in the next room. Food wasn't great, though to be fair, very plentiful! Would probably book a normal dinner if I was doing it again.
NIGHT CLUB ENTRY - Bit of a let down. We tried to get in but told we were not on the guest list. Possibly our fault as we didn't go at the specified time though they claimed we were not on their list at all! Most people were too pissed to be bothered though...
REP - Maria was very helpful and answered all our questions. Very tolerant and understanding, which can't be easy with a group of 12 lads when you're the only female, so fair play to her. Thought she would be spending a bit more time with us on the night out but appreciate she had other commitments and things to be getting on with.
RIGA - Beautiful city. Locals seem a bit wary of us, which I suppose is understandable. Not as cheap as I thought it was going to be, but good value for what you pay I suppose. All those we spoke to had a good grasp and understanding of English, which helped a lot. ”
“Brilliant.... the whole weekendaccommodation was very nice, guided tour recommended!! no complaints at all.... thankyou!!!”
“It was a great place to go with a bunch of guys good laugh and we were looked after from the moment we got there till we left.Would say limited amount of pubs and clubs to go that are safe but had a great time and enjoyed it.”
“Riga itself is a good place to for a stag do.We didn't get to see the clubs, but there are plenty of bars there.The food is ok, but the beer is not cheap.”
“All 15 guys in Riga had a superb time, the nightlife was excelent with Loads of bars/clubs all scattered everywhere.Both the shooting and Karting were superb, best karting venue most of us have ever been to. Shooting is highly recommended, go for all 4 guns with the AK47 and the big pump action, you don't get to do this kind of thing back in the UK.
Svetlana the guide was wicked, really relaxed and spoke good english. Had great fun out with her and her mate, can't say a bad word about the whole weekend. Worth every penny going to Riga through Last Night of Freedom, would recommend it to anyone!”
“I would just like to say that our stag weekend in Riga was fantastic.The organisation from the rep was impeccable and coupled with the excellent activities made for a brilliant weekend had by all.Thanks very much and I would highly recommend you. ”
“We only booked the limo,bobsleigh & shooting through your company. Limo and bobsleigh were great but the shooting was average.
Svetlana did a fantastic job. She was a pleasure to deal with and helped the 22 if us out if we needed anything”
“Had a really great time in Riga, hotel was a good standard and our rep was really helpful making sure we were all on the bus at the relevant times (no mean feat !!).A word to the wise, dont just wander into any old bar or club unless you dont mind being fleeced, try to find out a bit about it first, but generally had great drinking fun especially in the skyline bar on the 23rd floor( Riga Prices are also quite a bit more expensive than we were hoping) - not much cheaper then uk prices now, but dont let it put you off, was a brilliant weekend. ”
“Many thanks to Paul and the rest of the team at LNoF for helping to organise my best mate's stag weekend, I think I speak for everyone on what a great time we all had.The hotel location was excellent, the food & drink reasonably priced and very good, the pubs and clubs packed with beautiful ladies...what more do you want on a stag weekend?! Inparticular the nightclub entry to Fashion Club was an inspired choice LNoF, especially after running into a Latvian Hen night whilst there!!! I have never seen my mates so happy.
Our guide Svetlana was excellent, always showed up on time, took us to the best places to be and was always on the end of the phone if and when required...even when needing directions to the nearest kebab shop. She even took part in our Bobsleighing Activity which took a brave girl seeing our faces after the first run...but excellent fun had by all!!
As for the locals...they were very friendly, helpful, and good fun the entire weekend (especially the young dark haired girl in Stella's pub who always looked after us). Not a hint of trouble all weekend despite some of the stories we heard on tripadvisor...be nice to the locals and they will be nice back, it's simple as that.
Saving up for the next visit back to Riga...and your service couldn't be recommended highly enough. THANKS.”
“Excellent venue, although the bars weren't that densely located and the guide while being nice wasn't the best at getting the party started. It was a bit like taking your girlfriend out with you and we had to wait outside her house while she got changed on the first night!Other than that it was a great weekend! Activities good - especially the guns!”
“Everything arranged ... rep waiting at the airport .... accomodation forms already filled in ... straight on the beer ... looked after v. well by Lana ...she showed us the town and then met up with us on the next night too make sure we were ok, shooting was great and worth every pennybe carefull of the bars down town ... Stella bar in particular will rip you off royally if they get a sence that you wont notice ... group down serious cash after only 1 hour in this pub.
Martini bar is a great place with great bouncers ... get them a drink and they are you friend for the evening. Great atmosphere. Irish bar Paddy Whelans is a great kick off to any night ... with great food to keep you going.
Voodo club great for all night dancing .... beautiful girls all out for a good night out
“Had a an awesome 3 days in Riga. Hotel was excellent, guide was very accomodating, beer was cheap and plentiful, I highly recommend bobsleigh on Ice!!”
“I dont think Riga has embraced the stag night. There were not too many venues to enjoy "dancing" entertainment - we were rather limited. I would not recommend others go to Riga.
Your service however was good and the shooting fantastic.”
“Quality company, realy look after you before you go and on arrival. Take there advise on the newer places as the venue we chose had been hammerd by the brits.”
We had a great time in Riga. Everything was well organised and we had no problems whatsoever. Your local partners did a good job. Svetlana was very helpful and organised everything really well.
“Our guide, Katerina was excellent. Very helpful, advised us on the best locations and, of course, where not to go. Not that we listened to her! Bars were good, especially the Balsam Bars. We opted for the shooting package which was good, but over too quickly. Stag had an excellent time, which is all that matters.”
“The weekend was very well organised, Svetlana is an absolute gem,
the bar crawl was superb with her as a guide.The clays and shooting were great fun in wonderful surroundings.the karts were good apart from 3 of my friends failing the breathaliser,their fault not yours.The accomodation was superb
with big clean rooms and beautiful staff. The only downer was the medieval night, if it wasn't for the free beers all night it might have been a real problem. As a boys weekend location it was great, we did get turned away from a few bars with no English given as a reason but then we get that in london as well.We will be using you again in the near future maybe to Bangkok. Thanks guys.”
“The stag do was great, the strip limo's really started the weekend off well.
The location was good and the night life was ok but very expensive, in my opinion they have ramped up the prices with the recent surge of tourism which isn't great, and the locals aren't that friendly, although seeing heards of pissed english prob doesn't put the locals in great spririt.”
“Great value, high service levels, & good time had by all!!”
“Absolutely brilliant. Locals were a bit funny about the stag's outfit (dressed as a girl) and he had to get changed, but otherwise the weekend was incredible. Ticked every box. Cheap, great fun, high quality and memorable.”
“The Hotel was great but the locals weren't too friendly. Events were good paint ball was EXCELLENT, quad bike were mini-bike and myself and another member of our group couldn't ride them properly as we were over 6ft, they are perfect for kids or smaller adults.”
“The Hotel we stayed at in Riga was really good we had everything we needed the services there were excellent. Is worth going back just for the hotel for its casnio, club, and its bar on the 27th floor.Riga has good night life the locals are not as freindly as we thought they would be, the women are stunning though. It seems the prices are the same back home for drink but its cheap for other things. ”
“Ok, ok so it's a bit unfair that I leave feedback on my own stag weekend in riga seeing as though I own Last Night of Freedom but it really was the most fantatic weekend ever. Thanks to all the lads in the office that helped arrange it!!”
“Great place for a stag do, would definitely recommend it in Summer. Went from Mon-Thurs so missed some of the packages which are only available at weekends. Would go again definitely.”
