Testimonials about this excursion:

I came to Irkutsk for a business trip and as I had free 3 hours. So I decided to explore the city. The first good impression was that the guide and driver came to the hotel during 1 hour. The excursion was very cognitive. The guide told me a lot of facts about the history of the city. Thank a lot for the tour.
