We had a great time on our tour in early October 2019. I loved trying the different food and drink items, learning more about the history and culture, visiting a variety of locations (food court, corner deli, restaurant, monastery), and just having a really lovely time with our guide and the two other folks on the tour. It was definitely one of my favorite parts of our trip, and I especially enjoyed the visit to the monastery which felt more off-the-beaten path away from all of the touristy activities. The variety of items to try was really broad and varied including infused vodka, a pine drink, carrot salad, Russian salad, breads and cheeses, dessert items, and many more things – you will leave feeling very full. 100% recommend — well worth the time and money!
