Overview
The UNESCO-listed historic center of Riga is renowned for its medieval monuments and striking Jugendstil architecture. On this tour, explore the atmospheric Old Town on foot—stroll down the maze of cobblestone lanes; admire landmarks such as the Riga Dome Cathedral, St Jacob’s Church, the National Library and St Peter’s Church; and sample Riga Black Balsam, a traditional Latvian herbal liqueur.
What to Expect
You will have the opportunity to enjoy the architectural pearls from different centuries – from the oldest stone building in Riga dating back to 13th century to our Castle of Light – the National Library which was opened in 2014.
Pay a visit to the biggest churches in the Old Town- St. Peter’s, the Dome Cathedral and St. Jacob’s and find out why their spires are decorated with roosters instead of crosses.
There are many gems hidden in these streets and with the help of our guides you can discover the secrets of Riga.
The 2-hour tour includes the tasting of our magical elixir Riga Black Balsam believed to have the power to cure all diseases and a question+answer session with the guide.

Old Riga walking tour

Definitely worth the money. Our guide Gunta was brilliant; she brought the whole place to life and told us/showed us all the best places to go. Without this tour and Gunta's advice on bars, restaurants etc, our visit to Latvia would have been much poorer....More
