"What to do in Riga and how to make the most of the time you have? " Good idea would be to take a guided tour with a certified local tour guide ( and here I am! ) , whom you can ask questions and get the feel of the place as from a friend. Be it "hidden gems" or classic “must sees” of Riga - feel free to let me know about your interests and I will use my artists creativity to adapt a tour especially for you, as well recommend things to do on your free time.

Transfer-tours from Riga:
Riga - Vilnius
incl. stops along the way to visit Rundale Palace & Hill of Crosses.
The distance from Riga to Vilnius is 293km, if not being in a rush and rather preferring to see more of both countries, then taking another 85km “off the highway” allows to discover unique and in other ways hard to reach landmarks. Duration ~8h
incl. sightseeing stops along the
way to visit Sigulda and Parnu.
The distance from Riga to Tallinn is 310km, taking another 50km “off the highway” allows to see places where locals go for their enjoyment! Visit Sigulda, the “Switzerland of Latvia” and Parnu – the Summer Capital of Estonia. Duration ~8h
