Abbiamo davvero apprezzato il nostro tour con la nostra guida Liga. Ha portato me e le mie due figlie in un fantastico tour di due ore attraverso l'eccitante e affollato mercato di Riga. Molte fermate con ottimi campioni di cibo lettone. Assicurati di non mangiare prima - c'è così tanto gusto.

Eine informative und nahrhafte Tour mit einem tollen Guide. Wir wurden direkt vom Hotel abgeholt und sind durch den gesamten Markt gegangen und haben uns von salzig zu süß durchgekostet und die wichtigsten Spezialitäten von Riga gekostet. Liga (der Guide) ist auch auf unsere Wünsche/Vorlieben eingegangen.
