With my friend Pavel, we proposed to a local agency to develop a new part of their business : propose genuine local experiences to tourists in Russia. Because tourism is changing, and people are looking for unique memories, we wanted to propose off-the-beaten-track experiences. I'm from France, and I live in Russia for 5 years now, and Pavel is a native of Moscow. We combined our knowledge of what people are looking for when coming in Russia, and what this country has to offer. Working in the tourism industry for 5+ years, Pavel has the best contact list in both Moscow and St Petersburg. Thanks to all this, we are now able to propose you tours to hidden husky kennels, to organize traditional Russian picnics in the nature, to invite you for French-Russian dinners in our home in Moscow, or to visit St Petersburg in a kayak.
