Tour description

The Riga Hidden Gems Free Tour takes us to the outskirts of Old Riga in the part we call Center . How about discovering Riga through hidden gems? On our way we will see the Art Nouveau architecture , the circular boulevard, the city parks, important historical monuments and places of current importance .
Much of our tour will also be interesting stories about people who have made a substantial effort in the development of our city.
City that has been influenced by Baltic Germans, Latvians, Russians, Jews and many other people and cultures.
Many of the things on this tour are hidden gems that even the locals don't know about.
Book with us to have a great time exploring 19th and 20th century Riga.

I absolutely loved this tour! Toms is so friendly, funny and really knows everything about Riga! I especially recommend this tour to solo travellers great way to meet people! Tour does take a bit longer than 2 hours so I recommending giving yourself plenty of time when scheduling:)) Thank you!

It was my first experience taking tour in my city and it was great! I found out a lot of new information about my city. Living whole life in Riga, I didn’t notice many things, which Toma showed us. The tour lasted more than 2h, but the time passed so quickly, we didn’t even noticed it. Highly recommend two things: 1. Go for this tour, if you are in Riga. 2. Try this type of tours in your city. :)
