My name is Riga. I was born more than eight centuries ago at the Daugava River and since then I have become much more beautiful and attractive. My father was Bishop Albert of Livonia and I was happy with it, but then came a lot of foreigners, who wanted to conquer my heart. However, I managed to stay strong and proud. Listen to my name again Ri-ga. It sounds like music, like a promise, like a secret. Come and discover it!

    Great way to see Old Town and stories behind the buildings. The 1.5 hours was just right to see all the highlights. Highly recommend.

    Der Spaziergang über den Zentralmarkt wahr Kurzweilig und sehr Informativ. Wir Haben zahlreiche Anregungen für die nächsten Tage bekommen und einen kleinen Einblick in die Geschichte und das Leben in Riga bekommen.

    Inara was my guide and she was excellent. Her knowledge was encyclopaedic - there wasn’t a question she couldn’t answer. She also opened doors to buildings that seemed to be closed! The tour was a perfect introduction to the old town of Riga, both historical and geography. I would definitely recommend this tour at the start of any visit to Riga.

    Not really necessary to take walking tour as town so small. Expensive for the experience only trip I had booked that if cancelled no refund

    Took the free walking tour with our guide Rita who was just brilliant ! We covered so much of the city and learned a lot about its history and culture ! There were about 18 -20 in the tour from at least 8 countries and our guide took the time to explain everything ! Would highly recommend this tour to anyone Visiting the city of Riga

    Excellent way to see Riga old town with knowledgeable and experienced guide. You’ll learn about Riga’s amazing history including a ghost…

    Our guide was so knowledgable. She not only knew about individual buildings etc - she could knit the whole history of Riga together to give a much more complete narrative.

    Our guide was Gunta. She is a very welcoming and knowledgeable tour guide. The tour lasted around 1.5 to 2 hours and it was so interesting that we lost track of time. We entered hidden gems of the city and she made sure we know all stories around famous places. This was a memorable experience in Riga! Thank you!

    This is perfect for those who do not want to get into too much details but want enough information to not feel that they are looking at random buildings. Also, good for someone who do not want to visit the churches thoroughly (paying entry fees). The tour guide was friendly. Would recommend if someone wants to visit Riga just for a day. It is not so great who really want to get into the history of the architecture. Also, not for someone who wants to go inside the churches and buildings. Overall, very budget friendly recommended for small group or solo travelers.

    Excellent tour of a beautiful city. Our guide Inara was incredibly knowledgeable, humourous, and engaging. The information was well paced and she was great at answering our questions! I would definitely recommend this tour to all my friends and family
