Testimonials about this excursion:

We are back from our trip, and I wanted to thank you for the excellent help in preparing it. All the travellers were very much excited by the beauty of Irkutsk and the Baikal lake, and all choices were very well made. We really had a fantastic time. Thanks a lot!

Special thanks to Tania who was very helpful, knowledgeable and made a big effort in making the trip unforgettable for us.

One remark – the hotel in Listvianka does not provide breakfast as it was mentionned on the proposal. The hotel keeper went to the shop for us and bought what we needed.

Thank you again for your kind help, and I look forward to our next trip to Baikal, maybe in summer.
