Tour Reviews
  • Uwe

    Wir waren für eine Woche in Irkutsk und baten Dmitry uns die Region zu zeigen. Alle Unternehmungen waren perfekt organisiert. Dmitry spricht sehr gut deutsch und ist ein wandelndes Lexikon. Wir haben sehr viel über die Region und die Menschen hier gelernt. Über selbstgekochte Fischsuppe (mit einem Omul und Wasser aus dem Baikalsee) bis hin zu einer Fahrt im Führerhaus einer Dampflock und vielem mehr, hatten wir viele unvergessliche Erlebnisse. Auch die Mittagessen mit einheimischen Familien waren sehr schön und informativ. Ich kann Dmitry uneingeschränkt  als Guide für die Region Irkutsk (und darüber hinaus) empfehlen.

    Dmitry is the perfect guide.  He can make everything possible, is very flexible and friendly. The tour could not have been better. Just perfect. He knows the area very well and all our expectations were more than fulfilled.
