We had an excellent time on our tour of the market! We got to try lots of things we wouldn't have even noticed was there. I do wish it lasted maybe a little longer or the guide added a couple minutes between each of her tours, as some parts felt a little rushed. She was a couple minutes late because she was coming from another tour, and had to rush away at the end to meet the next tour.

I think it is worthwhile to do this tour as u can learn a lot about Latvian traditional cousine by eating different kind of food (meat, fish, veggies and cheese) & drinking traditional alcohol. Also the guide is very caring and very keen on her traditions and is able to convey such a passion to the people joining the tour. We enjoyed it a lot and we clearly recommend it.

Did this tour on a cold/snowy day, but remained nice and toasty inside. Guana was fantastic. Witty, knowledgeable, organized and engaged for the entire time. Super interesting to see the culture thru the eyes of their food!

The tour was great. Una was very knowledgeable, funny. You leave full, happy, having tried a ton of new food and drinks!

I had an amazing experience! My guide was on time, phenomenal and just overall amazing!!!
