About the Tour

You will love our tour. It will be filled with important and interesting information presented in a fun way. See you soon:) History of Riga is now a bit longer than 800 years. It is largely concentrated in Old Riga. As a vibrant and multicultural today, city has been influenced by many powers in the past. They all have left architectural, cultural and historical influence to explore. My aim is for a walking tour to reflect all these things.
