The bus will take you from the Riga harbor to the picturesque town of Sigulda, located about 30 miles from Riga. During the bus ride you will enjoy the beautiful forest scenery and magnificent views of the River Gauja valley. Sigulda is often called the "Latvian Switzerland" and is well known as one of the most popular tourist destinations in Latvia.

On the tour you will visit the 13th century Turaida Castle and the fortification tower, where you can enjoy the picturesque landscape from a bird's-eye view. By the Turaida church under an old linden tree you will find the grave of a young girl - the Rose of Turaida - the heroine of a true love story from the 17th century. The visit to Turaida will end with a walk in a sculpture park dedicated to Latvian folklore.

During the tour you will also see the ruins of the 13th century Sigulda Castle and the 19th century Kropotkin's Manor House. On the way you will also visit the popular sandstone caves (Gutmanis cave) on the ancient riverbank.
