The tour of Riga - one step outside the Old Town
Riga is a very diverse city with different architectural style buildings and even different culture areas!
If you feel like you can cover the Old Town by yourself, but you'd also love to see surroundings with a local guide, this is perfect! We'll take you through some of the main sights around the Old Town. We'll tell you stories, funny legends, show you some beautiful architecture and point out weird and charming things so you get to see our city from a different point of view!
Tour is quite flexible, so if you have something else in mind that you'd like to see in the central circle of Riga, we can easily customize this tour.
