St Petersburg Traditional Dinner with a Local Family
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!
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.
