Anton gave us a great introduction to Russian cuisine and we really enjoyed tasting our way through the Russian specialties. He even managed to adapt the tasting to my food allergies (which can be quite challenging!). He was still able surprise us and explain the things we’d already seen or tried as we’d already been in Russia for a week, but were not able to book a tour before. He’s right to recommend you to do the tour in the beginning of your stay, everything will make so much more sense and you will be able to re-taste or visit really nice things and places! We had a wonderful time and everything was delicious. We also did a nice little walk to local hidden gems, including a beautiful monastery. Anton is a very knowledgeable and fun guide. Don’t hesitate to book this tour! We highly recommend it, thanks again Anton for a great experience!
