Ride in a sleigh, Russian dinner

During the winter time it is best of all to ride in a sleigh through the picturesque Park. Next step to have a dinner in the welcoming restaurant with Russian cuisine. I am sure that you will like not only traditional food but also the interior of the Russian house! And after it I suggest a little walk in the beautiful parks of the former Tsar's Village. Upon your request we can visit Catherine's Palace with Amber room inside.

What's on the menu? If you want to compose your own menu please write about it. I propose you a traditional Russian meal.

A Recent Review of this tour

Irina K is a very knowledgeable tour guide. She made our stay in Russia a very pleasant hassle free experience. We would highly recommend Tours by locals to friends based on the professional way in which Irina handled our tour. Russia is a very beautiful country, but without knowledge of the language our experience would not be as positive as it was with Irina's expertise.
