Any Recommendation for a Reliable Place to Book Tours?

Any recommendations for a reliable place to book tours around Lake Baikal? We are planning a tour but have no way of knowing whether the tour company is legit and will be there for us ....

Help! Any recommendation/ experience would be helpful!

I would advise you to contact local guide Tatiana - at private-guides.com/guide-in-russia/…index.php

In Russia still a private pesron is more reliable than any company.

Thanks for the tip. Private guide is a good idea, but since we'd be arriving from the US, we think that an organized tour with transportation, lodging, etc would be a better bet.
