Riga tour: outside the old city

Riga Tour but outside the city center

Briefly about Riga tour

Join a private Riga tour with a personal driver and guide to the outskirts of Riga. Our team thinks that you can interestingly spend up to 4 days in Riga. In such a time frame it is good to pay attention to the outskirts of the city too.  We offer you Riga off the beaten track of the city center tour and suggest to visit three fascinating museums and a beautiful satellite of Riga - Jurmala. An alternative would be to go to Sigulda and Cesis, Latvia.

Visit Jurmala

Kipsala district

Riga tour itinerary

9:00 AM
After a short drive, we will arrive at the Riga Motor Museum. Opened on the 22nd of April, 1989, today this is one of the most prominent motor museums in the Baltic states. The museum includes professional restoration workshops that make its exhibition so well equipped. The museum artifacts will take you to the historical journey from the bicycles to sportscars. 
11:00 AM
Over bench of Daugava river will take us to Kipsala. This quiet neighborhood was home to Janis Lipke. Lipke was a Latvian Hero, who during the Nazi occupation, acted against the circumstances and rescue life of his neighbors Jews. Today there is a museum of his legacy in the barn where Lipke hid more than 40 jews. In the Janis Lipke museum, you can learn the history and get inspired by a person who risks his life to do what is right.
2:00 PM
Next, we will arrive at the Ethnographical open-air museum. Since its establishment in 1924, the museum has collected 118 historical buildings from different regions of Latvia. On the walking tour through the museum, you will see the diverse architecture of the different areas of Latvia.  There are permanent exhibitions – household and working tools, interior furnishings – which characterize the period and the district.
5:00 PM
The last part of the tour is in Jurmala. It is an iconic resort on the Baltic sea coast. The small but very charming city today is a satellite of Riga. The Nobel and wealthy people from Latvia and neighboring countries used it as a summer vacation spot. You will see here many luxury villas belonging to celebrities.  We will take a promenade on Jomas street to the famous Dzintari concert hall. In the summertime, Jurmala hosts the show of local and foreign music stars. We will continue to the beach where you can see kilometers of sand and smell the breeze of Baltic see.

Amazing Tour! Great food, sights and awesome guides. We had an awesome time. We were a large group, but easily accommodated by NYC Tours Co. The atmosphere was amazing, the weather was perfect, and the sights were beautiful.

The company was recommended to us by a friend, and now I can see why! It was certainly one of the highlights of our vacation. The guides were all very friendly, experienced, and professional which made it a real treat.

I was visiting from out of state with my family, most of whom had never been to NYC before, and we thought a tour would be a good idea - we're sure glad that we did! The experienced guide made sure that the whole day went smoothly, and luckily for us the weather was great. Highly recommended!
