With great pleasure, I am ready to show you my native and beloved city - Riga. Particularly the Old City. I love to communicate with people from other countries and share my impressions of the beauty of my hometown. History has been my passion since childhood, I have been studying it all my life. In addition to the completed courses of the guide, I received a master's degree in history, and I have experience in guiding tours.

Tour description

I want to show the magnificent Old Riga, paying attention to the nuances of history, small details of architecture, fascinating stories, and legends. I am inspired by the spirit and atmosphere of the Old City! 
Riga is great because it is a contrasting city, showing different historical eras, and inspires you with the opportunity to endlessly immerse yourself in them, walking and looking at every small detail. 
Street tour of the main places of the Old City:

  • Freedom Monument
  • Bastion
  • Powder Tower
  • Presidential Castle
  • Embankment
  • Dome Cathedral
  • St. Peter's Church
  • Town Hall Square
  • Medieval houses and barns. 


This is your moment to discover the real Riga!

Taking a walk with Edgars was the best way to get introduce to a city with such a complicated background! Every street corner as an history and he’ll let you know all about it! Fundamentally interesting and very kind!
