What you'll do

You will be welcomed by Leo and Aliona in their comfortable apartment located in the center of Moscow. You will start the evening with a degustation of local juices and Russian starters coming from local markets. If you’re lucky, you’ll be able to enjoy sunset directly from the balcony. After the start, you will discover the unique mix of French and Russian meals with your hosts: genuine Russian dishes prepared in a modern way, French classical dishes prepared with local Russian products, directly coming from Moscow Region. You’ll have the chance to taste Georgian wine: mandatory during any trip in Russia. You’ll also taste cheeses, produced in Russia following the French example. You will end your dinner with a "tchaiépitié", a typically Russian tea ceremony, served with seasonal fruits, cakes, sweets and biscuits. It is still not over: you’ll try homemade jams and cakes, and the Georgian tarte tatin: Antonovka. Despite a unique dinner, this experience will be the opportunity for you to meet locals, passionate about their home city. They will share with you their best tips: restaurants, bars, parks, walking routes, in order to turn your stay in Moscow into an unforgettable memory that you will cherish forever.

Your hosts

With my friend Pavel, we proposed to a local agency to develop a new part of their business : propose genuine local experiences to tourists in Russia. Because tourism is changing, and people are looking for unique memories, we wanted to propose off-the-beaten-track experiences. I'm from France, and I live in Russia for 5 years now, and Pavel is a native of Moscow. We combined our knowledge of what people are looking for when coming in Russia, and what this country has to offer. Working in the tourism industry for 5+ years, Pavel has the best contact list in both Moscow and St. Petersburg. Thanks to all this, we are now able to propose you tours to hidden husky kennels, to organize traditional Russian picnics in the nature, to invite you for French-Russian dinners in our home in Moscow, or to visit St. Petersburg in a kayak.
