We booked a ghost walking tour but unfortunately got a classic city walk. In addition, we thought it was expensive for what we got in return.

It was a great city tour in itself. Unfortunately, the ghost stories were missing from us.

Good information about downtown Riga.

The tour overall was good. Seasonally, however, had the disadvantage that it wasn't even dark. Because under ghost tour you imagine something in the dark and a little creepy.
