The ultimate Latvian experience
Oct 2020 • Couples
Latvian cuisine is exquisite and this is the perfect tour to discover it. We went around Rīga's central market with Liga, who introduced us to many flavours our palates had never tasted before: pickled veggies, hearty soups, delicious pastries. She made sure we were following all the sanitary requirements and we felt super safe with her. We couldn't recommend this tour enough. This is an experience for all senses since colours also invade you from all around. Great gourmet experience overall.
Thanks Liga!

A must-do!
A great way to kick off a trip to Riga! Our guide Liga was very knowledgeable and friendly and we had a great time eating our way around the market. Definitely go on an empty stomach because we were in a food coma afterwards! Liga also gave recommendations for eating and drinking out in Riga, which we took and were not disappointed. Can’t recommend enough.

Would totally recommend Liga's tour of the food market!
Our travel guide Liga was really nice and personalized our tour regarding our expectations. We tasted a lot of really delicious traditional food and she showed us many "secret" tips, regular tourists might not now about. 10/10 would recommend 😁

Lativian Food is Wonderful
Oct 2019
Liga was an excellent guide giving us first a brief history of Riga and Latvia, explaining the culture and food. She then took us to the food market which was a series of hangers. She started with the meat hanger where we tried perogies, salami, smoked meats, borscht, and other local soups. We then went to the dairy section and tried local cheeses and dumplings. Next vegetables where we had beets and cabbage. Then onto the fish hanger where various fish were available to sample. We finished with local chocolates, coffees, and cakes. Excellent and filling day!

Riga Market
Oct 2019
We had a very enjoyable couple of hours in the company of Liga Vanaga as she took us through the market. We were able to try a wide range of local dishes as she explained about the local traders, customs, and foods. This is a great way to get to understand any city and Liga was a very good host. We also managed to get a few things to bring home with us. Highly recommended as an introduction to Riga and Latvia.

An amazing experience
Jul 2019 • Friends
This was a brilliant tour. Our guide was incredibly friendly, very knowledgeable and took us to the real highlights of the market. We started off by sampling Kvass and then proceeded to try a wide range of foods, whilst being given fascinating facts about Riga and its culture.
This was the highlight of our stay in Latvia!

Thank you so much for such a nice review! Any small group tour is also an experience between the guide and tour guests, and you both were very nice, interested, opened to trying different things, also interacting with other tour participants. It always helps to make the tour very enjoyable. I'm pleased to hear that it was the highlight of your stay. It was my pleasure to meet you in Riga! Kind regards, Liga

Great Experience
Jan 2019 • Business
We choose RAMI Travel, they picked us up on time from the airport and started with our tour. Excellent driver and more importantly excellent German speaking guide. We had -12 degrees in outside temperature, but the guide amended the tour accordingly so that we could always warm up. The food tasting was a great experience and I wouldn't miss it, it is definitely worth it. Thanks again to Oscars, Ilze, Liga and Cynthia.

Great food tour!
We took this tour of Riga Central Market a bit off season, so there were just the two of us and our guide. We asked loads of questions and she did her best to answer all of them. The tour lasted 2.5 hours, probably because of our questions, but our guide was very patient and polite. We got to try many different type of foods, it was enough for lunch for us. Watching her we got the hang of the market and walking around ourselves at the market the day after we felt confident to buy foods and try things on our own. It was all we hoped for and we highly recommend this tour to everyone who is interested in getting to know Rigan food culture!

Where the locals go
May 2018 • Family
This walking tour will take you about an hour and a half to two hours, and is almost entirely indoors. The market is housed in 5 old hangars, one devoted to meat, one to dairy, one to fish and one for fruit and veg. One is under renovation and empty at present.
Our guide met us at the designated spot punctually. She was cheerful and full of information about the daily habits and diet of Latvians.
One thing I liked was that this spot isn't for tourists - this is where the locals get their food, and is therefore authentic. Your guide will buy small samples of food and drink for you to try at impromptu indoor picnics.
