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.

The free walking tour with Rita was very good even if we are not experts in architecture. Rita has a big knowledge and shared it in a clear and interesting way. We feel we understood more the history of Riga and saw the hidden places. Recommended!

Toms is knowledgeable about art nouveau and the history of Latvia. I appreciate his enthusiasm and interest in the style and how it’s reflected on the many buildings of Riga. I enjoyed his tour.

Very good. Don’t dismiss a walking tour of a smaller city without trying one first.
