Tour St Petersburg sample Russian culinary delights, discover the city’s hidden treasures, and be blown away by the iconic architecture – all from the perspective of a local.

I cannot improve on our review in TripAdvisor, which was as follows: This is a fascinating tour of two halves. The first half involves a visit to a local market with stalls selling all sorts of produce. You get to sample many of the market's offerings, such as honeys, pickled vegetables, salamis of all types, the famous salo (cured pig fat - trust me, it's delicious) and sweet confections. You also experience the bustle of this local market - the sights, sounds and smells. The second half of the tour involves a short journey by metro to arrive at the home of a local family. We visited a friendly couple with five delightful children who were real live wires and a joy to meet. Here you are treated to a genuine home-cooked meal (including kvass and vodka) and made so very welcome. We learned things about everyday life in St Petersburg that no traditional guided tour will offer. Highly recommended. We loved it!

This was an excellent tour. Our guide Jana was very knowledgeable about St Petersburg and gave us an excellent introduction and understanding of the history and daily life in the town. The taste of Russian food at the end of the tour was excellent and capped off a great experience. My wife and I would recommend this tour to all of our family and friends.

Oksana in St Petersburg, Russia, was an enthusiastic guide and she went over and above to entertain us on our local tour, even though it was just me and my husband on the tour. It was a fun, relaxed and different experience and we would recommend it.

A huge thanks to Oksana for the wonderful experience and all that she shared with and taught our family. She was so engaging and enthusiastic which made it interesting for all of us and her willingness to answer questions and share advice made the rest of our week even better with all that we'd learned. Thank you!!
