Local Family Dinner

Dear traveler! My name is Elena, and I am the owner of Red Sun Tours company. I am also a big fan of family dinners. Traditional family dinner in Russia is not just a meal together. It is a ceremony. Family members exchange news, help each other cooking and have fun together. Not everywhere remained the habit to have a long meal. Modern generation is getting used to street food more and more. In our family it is different. I invite you to be part of our Traditional Dinner and see how authentic and exciting it is! 

Tour information:

This is a tour to a local family. It starts with hotel/port pick up, transfer to the local family apartment. You will meet Elena’s or other guides’ family members and enjoy a full meal together. On tour, you will learn more about Russian cuisine traditions, talk to family members and taste local dishes. Home Dinner Tour is a bestseller for cruise passengers. It is very popular among Australian and American travelers. Give it a try. 

  • Try local food with vodka tastings. Russia is famous for diversity in meals and drinks. Usually, we have a full breakfast, lunch, and dinner so you have plenty of things to try. What’s more, Russian cuisine is a mix of different national traditions: Ukraine, Belarus, Caucasus, Uzbekistan and many more. The USSR brought new tastes and preferences and its traces remain visible in the local cooking habits. Be part of our culture and explore new flavors.
  • See Russian life hidden from foreigners.
  • See how the locals live and bring up children
  • Talk about politics, economics, local employment and much more. All questions are open to be discussed.

The best tour I have ever taken!  

Through a friend I was given the name of this tour company and as we booked the cruise late I knew I needed a tour to have a Visa so I booked it. Immediately I knew I had made an excellent choice, as the emails I received were professional, helpful and timely. My expectations were fairly high and the actual tour exceeded all my expectations. We were met as soon as we got off the ship and Elena Semenova greeted us warmly. The two day private tour with Elena and our driver were the best two days of touring I have ever had in all my travels. We have been to over 20 cpu tries and St Peters urban is my favorite place of all. If you want to see everything g and have an expert guide who is as nice as can be you need to use Red Sun. The Home Dinner part of the tour was AMAZING! If you ever travel to Russia use this great company!

Great way to see St. Petersburg  

We were on a cruise and were stopping in St. Petersburg for 2 days in July 2018. Rather than take the cruise lines tours, we opted instead for Red Sun tours. They were very accommodating to set up a private tour for 4 adults and 2 kids. We were met right at the ship by a nice smiling lady who introduced us to our guide and driver. Both of them were very friendly and accommodating. The guide was very informative and showed us the sights we had requested. In the evening we had a dinner with a Russian family which was a highlight of the entire trip. Thank to Elena and her family we tried some delicious home made food and saw how a Russian family lives. The entire tour of St. Petersburg became the highlight of all our holidays and i would recommend them highly. We saw and knew so much, more than others who went on a ship tour and for less money also. If we are ever in St. Petersburg we will definitely book a tour with Red Sun Tours.
