Overview

Starts at 12:00 Every day, in front of St Peters church. Look for the Yellow suitcase! Riga Free Tour is a chance for you to see areas such as the Moscow District, Riga Central District, Market area and much more. Escape the touristic Old town and hear stories about our city that will change your impression of Riga! IMPORTANT to know: This is not the 11:00 Free Tour... People get mixed up some times! Riga free tour is running on the 24th and 25th December but on the 1st of January, & 24th June (Midsummer) we will not operate - come and join!

Liked the tour! It was a very surprising itinerary, I expected to see a little bit more from the old town, however the guide takes you to completely different places. First it dissapointed a little, however next I understood that I would never go there...More

I don’t exactly recall but it went past the Aussie Backpackers’ Bar about that time so the guide could drop off the yellow case. You could contact the bar and ask them. Regards: Chris
