What to expect
  • Your private driver will pick you up from your hotel and transfer you to you host's place located in the nearest suburbs of Saint Petersburg. The drive will take approx. 1 hr (depending on the location of your hotel and overall traffic) so you will be able to relax and take a nap while on the way. You will drive along the so-called Road of Life, along which trucks evacuated people from the besieged Leningrad during the WWII. You will pass the Flower of Life Memorial, dedicated to all children who lived (and died) during the war, and it will be possible to make a photo stop by the memorial on your way back to the city after dinner. Upon arrival, you will be greeted by your host (who speaks very good English), escorted to the house and shown around. You will see how a multi-generation family lives in Russia, get to meet some of the family members (who are at home at the time of your visit). And of course you will enjoy your meal while talking to your host about life in Russia

Great way to experience Russia and St Petersburg
May 2019
My wife and I had the opportunity to visit and eat in the home of a family in St Petersburg while on a cruise. It was a very delightful and educational experience. The meal was a typical Russian family meal of Russian salad, carrot and cheese roll, mushroom and pasta casserole, and walnut cookies. As everywhere wine and vodka were served. Our host's family had lived on her street for 95 years. Her and her husband's description of living before and after the fall of the Soviet Union were very interesting to two Americans who had only US news descriptions of life in Russia. We totally enjoyed our experience and would recommend it to everyone who has the chance.

This had to be one of the best things I did on this trip. Sitting down to dinner with this wonderful family who opened their loving home was just amazing. The delicious food, which was all traditional Russian dishes, was out of this world. I loved hearing about each dish, how its made and on what holidays it is normally served. The family are warm and loving people and once you sit down at their table, you feel like a honored guest. Oh my gosh I loved the Blini (Russian Pancake) and all the sweet fillings. I was picked up and brought back to my hotel my their driver and family friend, Archie, who is another jewel in this tour. He engages you in conversation all the way to dinner and back. He was also invited to take dinner with us which I thought was a wonderful gesture by this family. I highly recommend Ulkotours who provide this wonderful experience.
