* A traveler said: "We met Victoria, our charming Russian host, at the completion of another tour (also with Ludmila Tours). We had already explained that we did not really want to go shopping and had seen plenty of palaces and cathedrals. What we wanted was to experience and explore some of the 'behind the scenes' St Petersburg. We were not able to do this on our own because we had not obtained Russian visas for our one and a half day stay. Victoria was wonderful. Her English was very easy to understand and she spoke at length about life in Russia in general and St Petersburg in particular. She took us to a great little coffee house and then we just wandered through backstreets, ventured into large courtyards hidden from view by large gates and surrounded by apartments, we looked in several 'ordinary' shops and also spent some time in a magnificent emporium on Nevsky Prospekt where the ordinary folk of St Petersburg buy their caviar! All the while, Victoria spoke entertainingly and knowledgeably of her own life and upbringing - she was very young when the USSR dissolved, but she had plenty of information about the kind of life that her parents had led under the previous regime. She also spoke about her own children and her hopes for their future. We enjoyed every minute of it and at less that ten euros apiece, it was an absolute bargain!"

* A traveler said: "This activity was one of the best experiences of my trip to Russia. I was a bit worried that painting a nesting doll would get boring after an hour or two, but the time flew by. My instructor Irina was simply incredible. She was kind, funny, and incredibly patient. I went with the intention of making a decent looking matryoshka to proudly display in my home and Irina made it possible for even one such as I with no artistic talent to make a true masterpiece. She took into account every detail and made sure I was always happy with the way my matryoshka was turning out. At no point did Irina rush me or seem impatient. In fact, she even stayed longer than the allotted time in order to allow me to create the masterpiece I wanted. All the materials were provided, including an apron to protect your clothes. The matryoshka is completely blank when you begin, so this is no coloring-in type activity. You genuinely design and paint your own matryoshka. The doll is surprisingly big. The exact size seen in the picture.| The class takes place in a side room of a local coffee shop. The space is nice and inviting, as well as the prefect place to grab a bite or something to drink while enjoying the class. | Overall, I highly recommend this activity. I had a wonderful time that I will forever recall fondly, as well as created the best piece of art that I have ever made. I did not know I had it in me until now. It would honestly be hard to not have a lovely end result with Irina's skilled guidance. Plus, I made my first Russian friend. The instructor is the sweetest person and made the whole experience easy-going and friendly. There is no more traditionally Russian activity than painting your own Russian nesting doll, and after spending two weeks in St. Petersburg, I can say that you will have a hard time finding another activity as fun and enjoyable as this."
