COACH TOUR OF RIGA WITH FREE STOPS - 1-day ticket
In a nutshell All the best that Riga has to offer is within reach as we have complete freedom to hop on and off the comfortable coaches that will cover set routes from one area of this irresistibly charming city to another. The perfect way to discover the two sides of the capital of Latvia, old and new Riga: the Riga that has preserved its typical Hanseatic buildings with their Medieval architecture, and the Riga with its Art Nouveau style. We will be charmed by its atmosphere where historic palaces and picturesque views alternate with more modern buildings and younger, livelier areas in an exceptional yet harmonious combination.
