Free Walking Tour Riga

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

Free Riga Walking Tour

Riga Free Tour is the longest running public free tour in the Latvian capital. Starting way back during the economic crisis of 2008, a group of tour guides and Riga enthusiasts from many backgrounds, specialities, came together to start the project that would later become "Riga Free Tour". We have grown into a tight knit team that hopes to keep the public inspired and curious about the city that is Riga. 

Our top free walking tours lead groups around a number of different areas of Riga. We run daily Old Riga walking tours, focused on the historical center and main touristic sites. The Alternative Walking Tour that shows a bit more of life today and covers the Central Market, Moscow District and Central Riga. And not forgetting our Art Nouveau Free Tour that is running seasonally May - September. This tour is a great way to learn about the amazing architecture of Riga and life in the early 1900's. 

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 tours for the public to enjoy. If you have not joined us yet, feel free to come along and see what Riga has to offer!

Great way to explore Riga! We really admired Art Nouveau tour with Kaspars! He gave a good understanding not only about Art Nouveau architecture style, but also social and historical context of Riga in early 20 century. Also some additional tips what to explore more. So next day we joined Riga’s Old Town tour with Arturs, which was also very good. We kept the last tour of alternative Riga for the next time :)
Great way to explore the city Did the old town tour and the alternative tour on my first day of my visit to Riga. Eva our guide simply was an angel - explaining all the facts and also showing the darker sides of the Riga history. Excellent English skills and good speed to let the information and the surrounding area to sink in. It was a great way to get to know the city and find the sweet spots.
Very good 1,5h walk around the old town of Riga, visiting the main attractions and receiving more info than expected. Kaspars was a great guide with a fresh attitude, vast knowledge about everything (especially history and buildings) and had also good jokes. Would definitely recommend!
