We were a party of 4, first time in Riga, and found the tour to be very enjoyable. Agnes had a wealth of knowledge and a great sense of humour. We found the tour to be interesting and were glad we took part. It was good to hear all the history behind the Central Market and the history of the Latvian people and their relationship with food. Would recommend this tour, especially for those first time visitors.

Great experience!
I attended a private Tour with my girlfriend, and we loved it! You get to see the rather big central market, learn about the cultural and historical background, and taste a variety of latvian foods
Tasting Tour as it should be
Our guide Markus didn't show us not only the halls of Riga's Central Market, but let us know much of Letvian cooking and eating today.
At the end of the tour we tasted some of the very special latvians pickels, cheese, bread and drinking (non-alcoholic). Every question was welcomed and as we were only 4 guests on this tour it was realy personal and we enjoyed it very much.

Exceptional interesting, funny, tasty
Our guide was very authentic, knew a lot about the city and the history of Latvia. With his funny character the two hours went by quickly. The served food included a good selection of regional specialties. We highly recommend this tour and would book a tour again!
Great tour in tha malls
Past and present melted together as we walked trough the central marked. The guide gave us a lot of interesting bonus information. And we tastes some of the specialities at the end.
We can warmly recommand the Latvian food tasting tour at Riga Central Market.

Just returned from Riga last weekend, and we went on an Alternative walking tour booked through your app. We had already done the old town tour ourselves, so wanted something a little off the beaten track! What we got was a 3 hour journey through places and history we never would have made it to ourselves. Our tour guide James was welcoming and so knowledgeable, it really rounded off a great trip to a wonderful city for us so thought I'd let you guys know and say thanks!

Very recommendable!
We we're very happy with our tour - a really nice guide with a lot of knowledge of Riga/Latvias history (eventhough he wasn't very local) :-). A luxury to have him all to ourselves.

If 5 is the best rating then he shall have 5.
James was so informative!
We had a wonderful time in Riga and we really warmed to the place.

James was a fabulous guide and we thank him for his knowledge and his enthusiasm
it all made the tour so much more interesting.

I do not think the tour was quite what I expected? I think this may be because we
had visited places before (Auschwitz in Poland) as an example, so we had a pre conception which of course
was wrong. However we thoroughly enjoyed the walking tour and seeing how very different
the buildings are and the area, also the wonderful commentary from James.
