Just go!
An incredible time and the most memorable part of our Riga trip hands down. Such a variety of foods and information that we never would have tried or learned about, and it's all included in the price which makes it easy.

She (Guna) is fantastic! Just book and go, you won't be disappointed.

Feb 2020
Great selection of local products to try from local sweets to vodka and craft beer and everything in between, including smoked pig snout for the brave!!

Really good 2.5 hours, so many times you walk through foreign markets not knowing enough of the language to be able to try a little of all the local produce. This tour allows you to do this with a really good and enthusiastic local guide in a really interesting venue (converted Zeppelin hangars)

You get to the soul of a country by looking at their food. What a great experience this was. The old market housed in old zeppelin hangars is a feast for the senses. By the end I was mildly drunk on the vodka, balsam and beer And the strangely alluring fake cola. We had a history lesson,along with tastings of typical Latvian food. Be open minded and you won't regret it although I did draw the line at one item.....10 out of 10

We really enjoyed the tour, and our guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the food market, and also Riga in general. The food market itself is very impressive, and we had the opportunity to taste very varied traditional food. We definitively recommend this tour if you are in Riga!

Feb 2020 • Couples
I would recommend this market tour to anybody visiting Riga. Our guide was very informative about Riga and it’s history as well as a vast knowledge of the market, it’s food and the habits of the local shoppers.

The fact that you get to sample several food and drink items is a real bonus. We enjoyed our time and very glad we booked this as part of our trip.

Perfect intro to the market halls and Riga
Jan 2020
A charming lady in red guided us a cold Saturday in January. Proud of the Latvian culture she gave us an introduction to both the people and the city. The visit to the market halls was also an interesting journey where we tasted a lot of food we otherwise would never had thought of eating. Very cool. Finishing the tour with Vodka and beer completed the whole thing. Absolutely recommended

Riga central market tour
My Wife and I enjoyed immensely the foodie tour around Riga central market. Our guide Guna did a terrific job. She had perfect command of the English language and was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about her country and its food. We sampled many local delicacies from sweets filled with cottage cheese to pickled vegetables which were delicious. We’ve been on many foodie tours around the world but this was our best yet. Guna was very well prepared, providing glasses, knapkins,plates, cutlery, serviettes and hand sanitizer. We sampled a number of fish dishes, meats and drinks finishing off the trip with a beer tasting. The trip was very good value- an absolute must if your going to Riga.
