Get to know the many stories and legends of Riga, a town more than 800 years old, on a unique walking and tasting tour through Old Town. This area of the city, with its hundreds of medieval buildings and twisting cobblestone streets, has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here is where you will get a taste of what life was like over the centuries, from the Middle Ages through the Soviet era.

During the tour you will try delicious Riga pancakes at Menzendorf House, the magnificent former home of a wealthy Riga merchant. Plus learn the rich history of St. Peter’s Church, a Gothic place of worship dating back to the 1200s — one of the oldest medieval buildings in the Baltic. At the church tower, enjoy a taste of Riga sparkling wine and exquisite handmade chocolates. Then, enter the City Hall Cellar and step back in time to the 15th century, where you’ll sample beers and snacks typical to those served in the Middle Ages.
