Discover Riga in an exciting and informative 4 hour tour!

Riga is much more than a place full of sights; it is also a city that is full of life, joy and music. Together with me you will not just see the streets of our precious Riga and hear its stories. You will also find out how people used to live and how Latvians live today.

Take the four-hour walking tour and visit the magical Old Riga, the lively Central Market and the Art Nouveau district.


I'll meet you at the cruise ship terminal, your hotel or any other place in Riga that is convenient for you. We start the tour in old town, visit the HOUSE OF THE BLACKHEADS, St. Peter's church, THE DOME CHURCH and Dome square, Latvian House of the Parliament and much more. I'll tell you about the HISTORY AND DEVELOPMENT of Riga, I'll show you the nicest buildings of Gothic, Baroque, Classicism and Art Nouveau. Then we head to the CENTRAL MARKET - an amazing masterpiece of architecture where the real life of Riga's inhabitants can be observed. After that we take a tram to the ART NOUVEAU DISTRICT where you'll see how people celebrated the life 100 years ago. After the tour I will take you back to the city.

Please be prepared and dress accordingly to the season. Latvian spring and summer is usually warm and sunny but starting from september it gets colder. Winter can be really chilly.

A Recent Review of this tour

I spent a nice weekend with Laura in Jurmala, a chaming, laid-back town characterized with beautiful beaches, stunning pine tree forest and picturesque wooden houses. On our way back, she brought me to a famous local market. I thoroughly enjoyed the the tour. Laura is an exceptional guide, her tours are informative, inspiring, interesting and entertaining. Most importantly, she guides with a true heart and treats her visitors as friends. Do not hesitate to contact her if you plan to visit Latvia.
