A Half-Day in the Life of St. Petersburg
St. Petersburg, Russia
- Family home visit: Quench your curiosity about how real Russians live by spending time with a St. Petersburg family in their home. Share tea or coffee, pastries, and discover how much we all have in common.
- Subway experience: Take a ride deep under the city. The earliest St. Petersburg metro stations are works of art laden with marble and granite, sculpture and mosaics, chandeliers and metalwork. The newer ones are simpler – but just as impressive.
- Food market: Exit the metro and enter the exotic world of a traditional market, where you'll sample the local culture and foodstuffs with your guide explaining some of the more unusual offerings – like fat-tail lamb from Dagestan, Iranian zira, khodolets (tangy meat jello), and pickled everything.
- Small group = more personal: Thanks to a limited group size, you're assured deeper interaction with your guide and a more flexible experience.
About This St. Petersburg Tour
In rock, it's "unplugged." In theater, "unscripted." In this case, you could call it "untouristed" – an unamplified, unvarnished, spontaneous travel experience.
