We had an amazing 3 hours tour of Irkutsk with Mihail, in English and Russian language, depending on our mood! Weather was cold, very cold, so Mihail proposed us a tour by car already some days before our arrival to Irkutsk, with some stops in the most significant places for 5 to 10 minutes walking. Mihail has been very friendly, but also professional and prepared. I would really recommend him and if there will be the chance to come during summer time, we will contact him for other different excursions!

I booked the tour directly on their website and got a reply right a few hours. Even though I was the only person participating in the tour (and probably one of the only foreigner in Irkutsk, Coronavirus) the guide Mikhail came and showed me around the city, explaining its history while replying to my questions. Definitely would recommend and it’s free so I mean, come on !

Our guide Mikhail picked us up at our hotel and drove us to the different attractions while talking about the history of Irkutsk and area around lake Baikal. He was very knowledgeable and you could tell that he loves his hometown. All the attractions was interesting and well planned. We had a really nice time on the beautiful frozen lake Baikal.

I was unsure how the tour would go since we had little contact before arriving at Irkutsk but we quickly found that Dimitri was an excellent, attentive guide! We were so lucky to find him. We did the Irkutsk city tour in the morning, which was very engaging and informative. Then we went to Listvyanka in the afternoon for dog sledding and a seal show. Next we ate excellent Georgian cuisine by Dimitri's suggestion, which was amazing and we were hooked on for the rest of the trip. I will recommend Dimitri to anyone who tells me they're going to Lake Baikal!
