Food tasting with glimpses into Russian culture and modern life
Try a taste of modern Russia and eat and drink what Russians really eat and drink these days!
On this 4 hour walking tour we will explore local places within the historical center but away from touristic routs and tourist traps.
You will visit the biggest food market in the city, a common suppermarket, several eateries ranging from very affordable and popular among residents to luxuries restaurants where the residents would go only on special occasions. You will have a big Russian meal!
I'll give you a comprehensive explanation of Russian eating traditions and history of dishes which we will try.
All expences are included in the tour price (exept for alcohol).
If you have any limitations or preferencies just let me know.
I hope to meet you in St. Petersburg/Petrograd/Leningrad!
As we can enjoy the freedom of having direct communication, the itinerary is very flexible. I suggest that the first 2 hours we do more walking, while the next 2 hours we do more eating, so you may choose a start time more suitable for your lunch/dinner time.

I enjoyed this tour so much. Pavel was a terrific guide and so generous with his time and knowledge. I received such a wonderful introduction to the food scene in St. Petersburg. In addition to visiting a very large supermarket and an extremely interesting covered market, we ate at 4 different local restaurants, tasting a different course at each location. It was a such a treat to sample some local cuisine. I highly recommend Pavel as a guide in Saint Petersburg.
