What You Can Expect

Small-Group Food Tour of Naschmarkt in Vienna

Spices at Vienna's Naschmarkt

Meet your guide and group near the Naschmarkt and dive straight into its colorful aisles. During your two hours at the market, you’ll learn from your guide about its history, which dates back to the 16th century when it was mostly milk bottles sold there. By the late 1700s, all fruits and vegetables carted into Vienna could be bought at the market, and today, the delectable goods include everything from cheese and bread to sushi and crepes.

Follow your guide through the market, stopping at various stalls to try samples; what you taste will vary depending on the day, but the range of local produce and international specialties could include blood-red pomegranates, Viennese cucumbers, Middle Eastern kebabs or exotic spices.

As you walk, pass by lively restaurants full of locals and marvel at the variety of food offered at stalls that will take you from Austria to the Mediterranean to Asia and back again. Plus, learn insider tips on how to use certain herbs and spices in your cooking back home!

Peter's wife was an amazing tour guide!! She had much knowledge about the history of the market, and also of all products sold at the market. We had an absolutely wonderful time on this tour, and would've enjoyed it to go longer. All the tastings were wonderful. Nothing but praise from our group!

Peter, our guide, met us at the beginning of the market and gave us our very own tasting spoons for the tour. We then began ambling through the market, with him describing foods, the processes involved in making them, their histories, where they come from, and how to use them in all kinds of dishes at home. His culinary background definitely shines through as he describes fabulous cooking ideas and spice combinations. We were the only 2 on the tour, so it was very personal, and Peter answered all the questions we threw at him. This tour was a delightful part of our Vienna visit and I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the city!

Outstanding tour...Peter our tour guide met us just outside the subway stop at the entrance to the farmers market. We strolled through the farmers market for the next 2 hours. He is a chef by training...and took us into various shops to sample honey, vinegar, cheese, meats and other delicious food. We also stopped along the way for coffee. Highly recommend if you are a foodie.

I was the only person who booked onto this tour but it ran anyways. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and she took me into many of the stalls to taste their goods. The guide went above and beyond and I loved her personal stories. It was a highlight of my visit and I definitely recommended it.

4 star rating: Recommended April 2015

This was very enjoyable. Peter was, so pleasant and a, great guide. This differed from food tours we've taken in the, past where you taste an abundance of food; but it was still great. We're very glad we did it.

Hard to find the meeting point, phoned the emergency phone no. but the lady was very unhelpful and impatient. So by the time we found the guide I was very frustrated, late and quite angry. The tour however was good and our guide very good. I would have liked to have tasted more things, example we were taken to a chocolate shop but didn´t get to taste any chocolate. Didn´t get anything to drink and were all parched by the time the tour ended. We went on the gourmet tour in Paris this year where we got to taste a lot more food and drink. Over all a very nice afternoon would recommend.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this September 2013

The guide was excellent and the Nach Market was very interesting. But, for the money we expected at least some small plates of food. We got next to nothing. We had a couple of pieces of cheese and a pickle. That is not a food tour.
