A wonderful tour with thoroughly selected sightseeing objects and seven photo-stops including a walk in Old Riga, visiting Kipsala island, Moscow forshtadt and Art-Nouveau quarters, a ride to Salaspils memorial and Rumbula forest.

Itinerary

Meeting in the port and a car tour around Art-Nouveau quarters and Jewish museum, Ring of Boulevards, a ride to Rumbula and Salaspils. This will take about 4 hours. Then we go to the city center for lunch. After that a tour of Old Riga. You'll see all the highlights of Riga: Dome and St Peter churches, Town Hall square and House of Parliament, House of Cats and Opera House and many others. . . . The time of the ride back to the Passenger port is about 10 - 15 min

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: Riga port or your hotel or another place upon your wish

End location: Riga port or your hotel or another place upon your wish

Duration: 6 hours

Traffic might affect the tour, but I always try to find the time for the Salaspils part of the tour without tough traffic-jams

Transportation

Minivan Chrysler TC for 5 (6) passengers. For a bigger group please ask for a bus&price.

What’s Included

Other: Pick up at the port (Central Passenger Terminal), transfer from and to the port, fuel and parking, guidance; walk in the Old Riga, five photo-stops visiting Kipsala island, Moscow forshtadt, Victory park and Art-Nouveau quarters. Transportation method: Crysler TC (minivan)

What’s Extra

Other: Personal expenses
Important! If the docking port is Krievu Sala, or you arrive to the Airport, 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 45-65 USD one way in my minivan or you can use shuttle buses and then we meet in the centre.

A Recent Review of this tour

Olga is a lovely person and a reliable, knowledgeable and sensitive tour guide. I selected a tour with a Jewish theme. I saw and learned so many things I otherwise wouldn't have. Olga generously took me to a place that I requested that was not on the itinerary. She made it so I could spend more time with exhibits by bringing the car to me when parking was otherwise far. She took me to a fun Latvian restaurant with food that far exceeded my expectation. So glad to have met Olga. I highly recommend her.
