What’s Included

Meeting in the port of your hotel (or any other place we decide about) and guidance through all the highlights of central Riga
Important! If the docking port is Krievu Sala then transfers to/from the centre and a pass to the port are needed. It takes about 20-40 min extra time (depending on roads) and costs 50-65 USD one way in my minivan or you can use shuttle buses and then we meet in the centre.
