There are 3 of us in Free Tours Riga, all born in Riga when our country was still part of the Soviet Union. We really love our city:) and are passionate about our job being tour guides. We feel really privileged for given opportunity to meet so many people from all around the world and pass over our knowledge, feelings, love and passion. We have guided tours in Riga and Latvia now for 8 years. Expect to have a great time on our tour - it will be educational and fun!

Tour description

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. I also like to share not only past but present happenings in our city. Expect a relaxing, informative and fun time . At the end of the tour i always provide extra advise on what else to do in Riga, that information is on my own made map that i will provide to all. Places to visit: 1. Town Hall 2. House of the Blackheads 3. St Peters church 4. Freedom Monument 5. Three Brothers 6. Swedish gate 7. Powder Tower 8. House of the Parliament 9. Large Guild 10. Small Guild 11. House of the Cat 12. St Jacobs Cathedral 13. Līvu square 14. Dome Cathedral

Tour bellissimo e super consigliato! Kristine è stata una guida fantastica, ci ha mostrato i luoghi più importanti della città e ce ne ha raccontato la storia. Oltre ad essere molto preparata è stata divertente e davvero piacevole. Non per l’ultimo, parla un ottimo inglese ed è facile seguirla anche per chi non è super ferrato. Consiglio questo tour a tutti! Fantastico!

Kristine impressed us with all the knowledge she shared with us! Including religion, politics, education, history, economy of this country! All the trouble Latvia had to become an independent nation was very well explained. And we were lucky enough to win a freebie in a little competition challenge: a little black balsam bottle! Totally recommend, Kristine was amazing! Paldies from the Portugal team!
