Uncover the historical heart of Riga
Old Riga Free Tour starts at 10:00 a.m & 15:00 Fri & Sun

The main sights of Riga are covered including the House of Blackheads, Town Hall Square, Dome Cathedral, 3 Brothers, Swedish gate and much more besides! The Riga Free Tour is probably best for a first timer in Riga for the simple reason that you will be exposed to Riga’s main sights! Old Riga Free Tour
