1 day tour, St Petersburg. Ideal for cruise passengers.

I want you to join me on this pleasant relaxing tour of an authentic, rustic Russian Village. The real advantage to this is that you will be taken almost back in time, where you can converse with the local people, eat their types of food, perhaps, learn about Soviet times which you might not have known anything about.

One of the marvelous things about rural life is that there is no real pressure, nor bustle, no real deadline too adhere to.

In my country side (1hour drive from the city) we can visit also local market - its fun, I'm Sure tourist never been there. Local church - made of wood (Church of St. Peter and Pavel), very nice one, and I'll show you my favorite places at the river Oridege (in a childhood every summer I spend there)- it's very charming.
We'll see what Russians do in there everyday life.
