Agnes var vores guide og hun var super sød og god til at fortælle om historie og national spisen og drikkelsen. Vi sluttede af med en mindre med udsøgt buffet af mad og drikke. bestemt en anbefalelsesværdig tur. Mvh. Peter
It was a short stroll to the impressive market halls.
Agnes showed us round them all and pointed out things that we would never have noticed on our own.
From the fresh fruit and veg, to the dairy products, meat market and the fish market.
All the local specialities were pointed out and explained to us.
We then had a small beer tasting with locally brewed beers. It was so good we had to buy some more to drink. The ginger and mint beer was very tasty.
Then it was over to the Creative Quarter to a small cafe where some local delicacies were waiting for us to try - a rye bread drink, some pastries, various types of sausage, some pickles, and a special type of butter. Just enough to give us a taste of Latvia.
Agnes was a brilliant guide. She didn't mind answering all our questions and we enjoyed listening to her describing life in Riga.
After we sadly said goodbye to Agnes we headed back into the market, armed with all our knowledge, to make some purchases.
The tour is highly recommended. A big Thank You to Agnes our brilliant tour guide - Paldies !!
