Very good class, Irina is very nice and helpful. She gave great tips on how to cook brocht. She also helped me to purchase vodka in local shop. Highly recommended!

Enjoyed a great time with Irina. We cooked Borscht. It's tasty! Irina shared a lot of Russian culture and history with us and advised various attractions in St Petersburg. It’s an interesting experience. We highly recommend it :)

Our excursion to Kronstadt was a wonderful experience. Irina is just a good guide and everything worked as it was planned.

If you would like to see a side of St. Petersburg that the regular tours don't take you on please try this one! Irina knew the best vintage shoppes. And my Mother in Law is a foodie. Irina took us to the best place where both of us had a great time. This is different view of St Petersburg and we highly recommend it.
