I would like to say many thanks to these open-minded cheerful and hospitable girls Alexandra and Katarina! The whole evening was on high gear and I wished we didn't have to leave :) I'm so happy to get to know these amazing people. The food was very tasty! The apartment is very lovely. Russian salad and soup was very delicious. It was a great experience to make real Siberian pelmeni. Now I know so much about Russian culture and hospitality. Thank you so much!

I would like to thank Alexandra and Katarina for their hospitality! It was an amazing evening! The apartment is very cozy and nice. Totally awesome Russian cuisine. You could never try that tasty authentic homemade bacon and pickles in a cafe or restaurant. What was really great is that we made real Siberian pelmeni ourselves! Really amazing evening in Saint-Petersburg! Thank you so much!
We were traveling a company of 6 people of mid 30th doing a big trip at Moscow, St. Pete’s, Tallinn and Riga. Wanted to have some interesting experience at every location. At St.Pete’s we chose this Russian dinner with family. There was a plenty of different russian food on the table. The surprise was that the drinks were also included. The hosts turned out to be good cooks and very interesting family working in tourism for many years. We were even given some advises of non touristic routs. The food was very tasty. The apartment was clean and well located. We will certainly recommend this company to our friends.

I want to share my experience of having Russian dinner with a family. I was looking for a good place to eat after visiting Catherine Palace and Amber room and somehow found this kind of dinners not far from there. It took me about 10 minutes by mini bus to get right from the Palace straight to the apartment. We’ve arranged with the company about starting dinner at 5.30 pm so I had plenty of time for visiting the museum. The dinner was well organized and planned. Surprisingly for me russian wine was quite good (and that is why the next my visit I will take a tour History of russian wine with tasting). We had a very interesting talk with the host Alexandra about history (she has a very good knowledge of it) and present days of Russia. Everything was very nice the host, the food, the location and the apartment. Thank you! See you during my next trip.

AE travel was the best choice.
Alexandra did a great job. Very knowledgable and punctual in pick up at the hotel.
We had a great trip at Metro – it was outstanding.
It was a great experience with AE Travel.
Communications was a breeze. Responses was handled quickly and all informations were given to us on time. Many thanx!

It was quite interesting to know that Russia is making wine lol. It was even a bigger surprise that they do it well. We arranged a guided tour ‘History of Russian wine’ with 4 wines tasting right after. The guide has a good knowlege of Russian wine making traditions from the very beginning till nowadays. It was very interesting that the tasting took place at a cafe at greenhouse. Wine expert was already waiting for us over there at the table with interesting lecture about Russian wines.
Highly recommend AE Travel. We were 5 people on a big trip in St Petersburg and could not have been happier with our choice of tour operators. Professional, knowledgeable and perfect organized. You will not be disappointed!

What a marvelous time we had with Katarina and Sasha. The food was fabulous. The conversation was interesting and intelligent and our 2 hosts could not have been nicer or more interesting. This was a once in a lifetime experience that we and our new friends will never forget. This was truly the highlight our our 2 week cruise through Russia.

Coming home to these two lovely sisters was a very authentic and fun experience! My children and friends loved the homemade food in the quaint apartment in the little suburb. This is a very Russian experience that we will remember for a long time. It was easy to speak about everything. Katarina was also very kind on arranging transportation and picking us up. The wine, the vodka, the pickled cucumber, the beef stroganoff, the borsht - everything was tasting good and served efficiently. I highly recommend the meal!

It's been a beautiful experience being guest at Catherine and Alexandra's! They are the nicest Russians we ever met and they did everything possible to make us feel comfortable and at ease.. All food was delicious and home made! The only thing we did't taste was their homemade vodka...but who knows...maybe next time!!!! I wish all the best to them in Russia and maybe even in Italy!!

We had a wonderful experience eating dinner at these cousins’ home. They set a table ladened with Russian specialties, including borscht, beef stroganoff, and homemade spirits. They were great hosts and our conversations were interesting and great fun. We left with new friends. We highly recommend this experience.

We had a really nice time together in Katarinas appartment in Pusjkin. Katarina served us a delicious traditional meal. She was sharing about her Russian life today. Her English is very good and communication was easy

It’s been a superb night spending time with Kartarina and Alexandra. My family and I had a very authentic Russian experience with the hosts. Thank you for celebrating my brother’s birthday and preparing the pie and the little presents, that was very thoughtful:) I very much enjoyed the food too! Everything was unexpectedly well-arranged and I would highly recommend this to any of my friend travelling to SPG.
