Old Town Historic Tour Riga

Excellent guide Marija really knew her history and showed us so many things we would ordinarily have missed. Excellent tour and excellent guide!
Lots of history in the beautiful old town

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour- we were the only two on it, so it was a private tour of the old town! We learned a lot about the city and the history of Latvia as well- our guide was extremely knowledgable and made some recommendations for places to stop in after the tour as well. This was a great way to see the Old town and learn about its history.

We are so glad we took this tour because our charming and knowledgeable guide, Maria, told us the history and stories that allowed us to more fully appreciate Riga's Old Town. The Old Town is charming, beautiful and very easy to walk through. This tour made our visit more enjoyable and we highly recommend it to anyone visiting Riga. Additionally, Maria told us about Riga's Art Nouveau architectural history and, had we know about that beforehand, we would've booked a tour with her to see that district.

We absolutely lucked-out with a terrific guide Marija who was so passionate about her city, she filled you with her enthusiasm and thus you just loved the city. She had terrific historical background information, knew her history and led us around parts of the city we never would have known about had we not signed up for this tour. Furthermore, she advised us on additional things to see/do during our stay for which we will be forever thankful. It made our visit to Riga, and we would happily suggest anyone visiting take a walking tour of the old town. It absolutely brings it to life!
