Reviews of other tours by Nadya
Blini Reizen is a Dutch touroperator who offers trips to the former Soviet-Union. We always advise our clients to book excursions with a local guide: to view the country and it's people with different eyes and also to get information they otherwise wouldn't get to know (easy). Two of our travellers found the "Be a guest at a real muscovite's dacha!"-tour at this website and decided to book it through our agency. They liked it very much, I quote: "Our excursion to the Dasha Nadya was fun and educational. We were warmly welcomed and even got a nice souvenir to take home!".
As an employee of Blini Reizen I arranged this tour for our clients and found Nadya very pleasant to work with: she is accurate, flexible, cooperative, interested and always trying to be helpful (e.g. finding out the best way to reach the meeting point from the hotel of clients, etc.). I would surely recommend this tour!
Nadya has told a lot of stories about the time that her (grand)parents stayed in this Dacha. The Dacha is in the original state including furniture and clothing's!
During our visit, we had a lovely lunch and a Russian tea.
The hospitality was great!
My friends from Brazil told me about this trip. They took the risk and bought a private tour to this Dacha house. They ordered a complete package-tour with lunch and tea from a samovar. Everything was delicious and different from the food in the Russian restaurant. The hostess speaks English fairly well, not really good, but with enthusiasm. I think, there is the only one museum of Dacha life in the world, I haven't seen anything like this museum. This is a private area, a normal dacha house, turned into a museum by the family of Muscovites. The museum contains furniture, old things and different subjects, clothes, appliances, dishes and many other items. Consider myself very lucky that I can visit to this Dacha. It is really intersting and unusual place, but only for foreigners. I spent a few hours at the Dacha with my friends, we made friends with the hostess.
And I recommend to all foreigners who are interested in life of Russia and its Soviet past to visit this unusual place.
I wish good luck to Nadya and her Dacha project.
