Perfect way to start a trip to Riga
Deanne_C
, Mar 2020
We booked the tour for our first day in Riga and we were so glad we did. Liga our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. We tried so much food and left feeling very full! The soup was a particular favourite. Liga also gave us recommendations for other restaurants and bars in Riga which was really helpful and we had a great time.

Highlight of our weekend in Riga!

We absolutely loved doing this tour and would recommend it to ANYONE who wants to do an experience in Riga. Our guide Haris was brilliant - super friendly, helpful, considerate and extremely knowledgeable - educating us not only on the food element but about Riga / Latvia in general. He took us around 3 different markets - a meat market, a fish market and a vegetable market. We had a perfect mix of picking / tasting different foods at the market stands but then also a few chances to sit down in the café areas and enjoy larger tasting dishes. The description says that you don't get "lunch", just snacks, which is true but you will definitely come away feeling VERY full from all the tasters. It was actually heavily raining all afternoon in Riga so it was ideal to spend the time walking indoors in a heated area! Thank you again Haris - we wouldn't have wanted anybody else to show us around!

Amazing Experience!

This tour was so great to go on, I would definitely recommend it to anyone that visits Riga. I had no idea what to expect from the market, and this tour, and my fantastic tour guide, showed me all of the amazing food of Latvia! Our tour guide was super personable, and she made sure to ask everyone in the group what kind of foods we wanted to try, and which things we did not want to try. I felt like we saw all of the interesting foods that are specific to Riga, and it was all super tasty. Not only did we try some great cuisine, but we also learned some cool history about the market and about Latvian food. Definitely worth the trip!

Going to the Market with a Friend

Our guide was spectacular. Her knowledge of the ever-evolving market was second-to-none, and she navigated its splendors and hazards for us with deftness and aplomb. More than just a guide, though, we had the distinct impression, in fact, of being with a Latvian friend. We had so much fun together at the market that our scheduled two hours turned into closer to three. Saying goodbye was sad! We can't recommend this tour highly enough.

Red Beet soup!

Liga met us on time . She spoke English and took time to ask our expectations, and educated us on street safety. Enjoyed learning about the regional foods and culture past and present. Come with an open mind and be willing to step outside your comfort zone. Suggest to bring a bag and cash so you can purchase along the way as you do tour.

A nostalgic taste of my cultural roots. You won't need to eat dinner after this but you will need to return because the market is so vast.

Great food in actual Zeppelin hangers we are so glad we took this tour! Our knowledgeable and charming guide, Edithe, did a great job leading us through all five hangers and showing us the delicious assortment of Latvian food that is available at the market. Make sure to go when you're hungry as there's plenty of good food available! Sprotes, grey peas and kvasse foodies will not want to miss this opportunity.
