Our guide was a very friendly and welcoming person. She showed us through all the market halls on the central market and told many interesting stories about the market and Latvian traditions. You get to sample various smoked and marinated meat pieces (pork and chicken), cheese, fresh milk, candy, different sorts of fish, bread, and pickles, all typical for Latvia. As well as a local liquor, Wodka and the bread drink Kwas. Of course everybody has different taste, but I think there is really something for everybody (except maybe vegans). Take the tour around noon and you can skip lunch instead. If I can recommend an idea, I would propose to introduce a second tour in the old city to sample different typical warm dishes from Latvia at different restaurants (as there is a lot to sample as well).
I find Latvia, and Riga, a welcoming place in general and that positive impression has just so reinforced, by my experience with our tour guide. Great local knowledge, as you would expect, brought to life with a depth of personal and lived experiences. (Aside from a single experience in childhood our guide was not able to eat bananas again until 15 - book the tour to learn more ;)). Our guide provided so much more than was described and you were left feeling looked after and at home in Latvia - as well as thoroughly amused (great sense of humour) and and well fed. Trust me - if you want the best experience of the market look no further. You will be glad you booked.
Excellent tour, unforgettable and breathtaking. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel. Our tour unfortunately took place in the rain but nonetheless our tour guide was excellent, encouraging and engaging. Truly magnificent location and marvellous views of Sigulda, castle and Gauja national park. Worth your money, in all aspects!
Nice walking ways, a very infotaining tour to extraordinary places and a lot of facts about Latvia and its inhabitants, too. I enjoyed it a lot and would highly recommend it!!
