The best of Riga walking tour
Old Riga is the heart of the city, but not all its places are revealed to tourists. We bet many of these places are not even known to local people! During the 2-hour tour, we will introduce you to the places of Riga’s old town that are not included in the traditional tourist routes – the stories of Ūdensvada, Pasta, Kungu, Peitava and other streets, which are different, but no less interesting and worth knowing.

Tour was amazing, I couldn’t even imagine, that in this city is so many interesting and beautiful places! I could see that the tour guide also enjoying his job, so he was sharing his passion with us which made this excursion even better. I really recommend it!
Considering that we only had one day in the city I was kind of nervous that we would not be able to get the best experience of it. However, this one day brought the best emotions and experiences I have ever had. The city was absolutely beautiful. People, places, cultures, and extraordinary buildings will be forever stuck in my heart. Our guide was super knowledgeable, interesting, and kind. Not only did he manage to keep our interest, but he also was super caring and helpful. Will definitely recommend it to our friends and family and hope to come again 😊
Everything was excellent, and I would have to say it was a once-in-a-lifetime vacation. I will do all in my power to promote your company and its services.
Спасибо Вам! Гид просто лучший в своем деле, если бы так преподавали историю в школе, то я бы наверняка захотел, чтобы история стала моей профессией!
The combination of history, architecture, and the overall easygoing mood made for a really wonderful visit. There was a great deal of attention to detail. Our main tour guide was both energetic and competent.
