The dacha is a unique phenomenon in the life of anyone who lives in the boundless expanses of the Russian Federation.


At summer's peak, many Russians don't venture far. The reason is dachas, their country houses. August brings the harvest for their small garden plots, but a dacha is much more than just an economic benefit: it embodies a culture dating back to Communist times.
Do you want to discover real Russian life outside big cities? Visit Russian Dacha ( summer house of your guide) in a typical Russian dacha village+ an ancient town Dmitrov which is on the way to Dacha village
Explore what Russians grow in their gardens, taste home made Russian meal or cook barbecue together with your guide (vodka, baked potatoes, pickled vegetables tasting). Explore how Russians spend their summer time outside of the cities. Homemade lunch is included.
Tour price is for 4 people but I can accommodate up to 6 people in this tour, however the price will change. If your group is larger than 4 people, contact me.

A Recent Review of this tour

My day with Irina was my favorite in a three-week trip to Russia. We visited a small village outside Moscow, toured Sergiev Posad and the Holy Trinity St. Sergius Lavra, and had a leisurely lunch at Irina's neighbor's dacha. Our hosts, a second Irina and her husband Pyotr, were the most warm and generous imaginable, and when the weather trapped us indoors, vodka and Pyotr's moonshine fueled conversation. Lots of laughter, lots of learning. Irina is friendly, quite knowledgeable, and has excellent English.
