Description

Riga is the art nouveau capital of the world, with more than one third of the city centre constructed in this revolutionary style. Besides introducing you to countless beautiful buildings, this tour gives you the chance to learn about different types of art nouveau and how the style changed from the late 19th century to the outbreak of WWI.

Find out whether the city’s art nouveau buildings were a demonstration of wealth and different ideologies, or built out of pure necessity for the rapidly growing population of Riga – the most industrial and wealthy Baltic city of the early 20th century.

We can pick you up from your hotel, or you can meet us at our office – just let us know your preference when booking.

James Eldrige was a really fun guide. Loved his jokes and lokal knowledge
Great Experience to discover Riga
I had an amazing tour with a very nice guide.
Helped me understand Latvian culture and customs to better enjoy my stay.
Definitely something i would suggest doing on your first/ second day in Riga, as it will change the way you see the city.
Thanks Again!
If you like Second Hand & Vintage, you just need this tour!
If you are new in Riga and want to know how to get second hand & vintage, this is for sure the guided tour you are after! You will visit places I am sure you had not found by yourself and you also get the picture of what Riga can offer in the second hand industri. The guide was super and had well knowledge both about the indisutri & about the city history. I enjoyed myself, learnt a lot about Riga and of course about how to get the good vintage and second hand. Thank you!
Excellent tour off the beaten path
Daily Bike Ride provided us with a really cool experience: biking outside of the historic old town. We spent time going through and learning the history of the Moscow neighborhood. Our guide, Arsiniy, was fantastic. I highly recommend using them.
Fantastic wY to see Riga
Agnes our guide was fantastic. It was great to see the real Riga outside of old town. If we'd had more time in Riga we'd have also done the food tour of the markets.
