You will get familiar with this magnificent city, which stands proudly on the banks of river Daugava for more than 800 years, however never gets old. Different kinds and rulers have always regarded this city as the most valuable part of their possessions, however, the city and the citizens have always been too proud to subject fully and all the rulers have granted to the city the privileges to live according to own rules :)
The old city counts for only 1/600 part of the whole city, however, in those buildings and narrow streets you can feel the complex history of this small spot of land.
Did you know that this used to be the biggest city in Swedish kingdom? Did you know the worlds largest planes were produced here? Did you know the worlds smallest cameras were produced here as well? Did you know the inventor of jeans was born here? :)
You will hear about these and many other interesting facts and people during the tour and you will also see the impressive architecture of the Old City, which is proudly listed on UNESCO world heritage list.
Hope to see you soon!

This activity includes:

Perhaps you may have an opportunity to taste the black balsam - You will even see a ghost -

  • “Good tour, but not for me.”
      Reviewed on July 18, 2018

    Tour was good. But It was hot outside, so was hard for me.

  • “Very interesting and informative”

    I really enjoyed the 2 hour city tour with Andis. We got to know a lot about the history of the city /country and saw many great places throughout the city. I do recommend taking this tour.

  • “Knowledgable tour guide”
      Reviewed on July 15, 2018

    Andis certainly knows his history of Riga and Latvia in general. His English vocabulary is fantastic, although he was slightly difficult to understand at times due to his peculiar (or charming) pronunciation of certain words
