Free tour por Riga

Riga Free Tour is the longest running free walking tour in the Latvian capital.

Free walking tour Riga

Riga Free Walking Tour is the longest running public free tour in the Latvian capital, Riga. We started offering free walking tours of Riga way back in 2008 when a group of tour guides and Riga enthusiasts from different  backgrounds, came together to start the project that would later become "Riga Free Tour". Since then we have grown into a tight knit team that hopes to keep the public inspired and curious about the city of Riga through our free walking tours. We really do hope that through our tours people will get a better idea of what Riga as a city really is and where the city is going in the future. Join us to discover the real Riga and get a locals perspective on what do with during your stay in the city. 

Our free walking tours of Riga lead groups around a number of different areas of the city with various themed tours. We run daily an Old Riga free walking tour, focused on the historical center and main touristic sites of the city. This tour is perfect for first time visitors to get to know what Riga is all about, the broader history, who founded it, who invaded, occupied and developed the city into what it is today. This tour is one of the more compact tours we offer but with cobble stone streets even a short walk can feel longer than it really is. 

The Alternative Walking Tour  shows a bit more of daily life as it is today in Riga and covers the Central Market, Moscow District and inner Central Riga. If you want to see the good, the bad and the ugly then this tour is definitely the toure to join. With subjects such as the Market pavilions, Latvian food culture, like wooden houses, the Soviet science academy, old warehouses, the Jewish ghetto area and site related to both Soviet and Nazi occupations. A lot of walking is involved so be prepared with good shoes. 

We also offer our Art Nouveau Free Tour that is running seasonally. This tour is a great way to learn about the amazing architecture of Riga and life in the early 1900's. You can find out more about this by visiting our official website but for sure this is a real gem of a free tour. Riga is well known for its amazing buildings and you are sure to be taken back by just how many beautiful examples the city has to offer

We also added a seasonal Soviet Riga Free Tour which was created due to demand from our clients. This new tour is offered to allow people closer access to understanding the Soviet occupation of Latvia and to explore Riga through this specific theme. You can read more about this on our official Riga free tour page

The feedback we have received over the years from our guests has enabled us to develop, learn and evolve into the company we are today. We do hope with continued improvements, we will be able to keep offering top-rated free walking tours for the public in Riga to enjoy. If you have not joined us yet, feel free to come along and see what Riga has to offer!

Realmente vale la pena, nos llevan a los auténticos lugares de Riga donde rara vez van turistas, perfecto para conocer realmente la cultura y la gente. El guia fue muy amable y entretenido e hizo muy ameno el tour, realmente valió la pena. 100% recomendado

Hice los dos free tours seguidos con Kaspars y fueron geniales. Estuve 5 horas con él y aprendí muchisimo!! Recomiendo sobretodo el de Riga alternativa, pues se profundiza mucho más en la sociedad, cultura y habitantes de Riga y Letonia. El primero, el free tour de la ciudad vieja es mas sobre los lugares más destacados de la ciudad, que al final no son tan relevantes. Aunque si se puede y se quiere andar 8 km, los dos se complementan a la perfección!

Maravilloso paseo con Kaspars. Tiene un inglés clarísimo, tono de voz perfecto para que todos escuchen bien en las calles, mucho conocimiento histórico y de su ciudad y muy buen humor. Hicimos con él dos de los 3 tours ofrecidos. Old town y art noveau. Ambos magníficos!

Yes, We prefer you to make a reservation. It helps us to divide the guides amongst the groups. We do allow people to join with no bookings as long as there is space available. In summer we get very busy so we do advise a booking in peak season and in low season if we see there are no bookings we may block a particular tour time, the general rule is please book the free walking tours.

Does Riga Free Tour you run in the rain or snow?

We are built for all weathers in Riga but are you? Make sure to check the weather before coming and do not be the shivering, wet client who cant enjoy the tour because they are on the verge of hypothermia. Yes, its no joke, Riga can get very cold in winter but the summer brings a really nice climate that are perfect for enjoying.

Will you tell us where to eat and drink in Riga?

Sure we will! The free walking tours cover a lot of history and culture but we know like any visitors to Riga you will also need to eat during your stay. Our guides will present some ideas for you to get to taste local Latvian food and to enjoy some of the more local spaces away from the tourist traps. Riga has a lot of food options but we see a trend for prices to be rising very fast, especially for tourists. We try to get you as close to the local economy reality as possible. You can also expect to hear what events and performances are happening in Riga from our guides.

Is Riga a safe city?

Riga is a relatively calm and safe city. We are often asked about the current security due to ongoing regional tensions and we understand some of you may be concerned about visiting but in reality you should only worry if the news is explicit on there being a real threat. As it stands Riga is safe.
