Private Riga Old Town Walking Tour

Tours Culture & history Activities Good for groups Walking tours

Explore Riga's fascinating history and learn about life here today in this 2h walk through the old town. This tour will give you a thorough introduction to Riga in an efficient and compelling manner.


  • Discover Riga's rich 800 year history
  • Delve deeper into the current political issues facing the country
  • Gain an understanding of what underpins Latvian identity
  • Learn the unique past of the Latvian language
  • Understand how the Soviet period still impacts life today


If you’re looking for an engaging and informative tour that covers the complex history of Riga but also explores what it is like to live here today, then this is the tour for you. We will not miss any of old Riga’s most famous landmarks on our walk including St Peter’s Church, Town Hall Square and Dome Square, but don’t expect a dry history lesson. On this tour, you’ll find out about the surprising origins of the Latvian language, the fate of churches during the Soviet occupation and the little known history of Latvia’s symbol of independence. The current challenges and opportunities facing the country today are also covered. This is both a personal and a comprehensive tour of the old town. I love telling people about my city and, having travelled a lot myself, I know how enriching an authentic local perspective can be.
