Watch out at the taxi stop by the Silja Line Terminal for a taxi "director" that sends you off with taxi drivers that rip-off customers! The trip to central Old Town should be about 5 euros but our driver tried to charge us 25 euros. I insisted he use a meter but his meter was rigged. After arguing I ultimately agreed on 15 euros but immediately reported him to the tourism police. The drivers were driving white taxis.
Too bad Silja or the Riga tourism office doesn't have someone at the taxi stop to protect tourists.Edited: 29 May 2018, 13:01
