La principale critique porte sur l'hotel Petropavlosk dont le restaurant est très bon, mais les chambres minables: cage à lapin , mobilier délabré, moquette usée et sale. Pour le même prix j'avais réservé , pour la fin du voyage, un B and B dans Petro dans lequel nous avions une "suite" sejour avec ecran plat, salle de bain, et chambre avec lit super King size. Les petites huttes de l'avant dernier

- Temps de trajets très, très longs - Guide ne donnant aucune info sur le pays, sur la vie des gens.... Plus un accompagnateur qu'un guide...... - Dans les points forts du voyage était noté ascension su volcan Plotski : non fait ? - Bien spécifier dans le descriptif, la présence des moustiques qui est très très importante.

Tout c'est bien déroulé. Les hébergements étaient rustiques mais nous le savions dès le départ, tout comme les moyens de transport. Le guide était un bon accompagnateur mais n'avait pas les capacités d'un guide. Heureusement, nous avions 2 personnes dans le groupe qui ont tenus le rôle de guide de façon parfaite. Les cuisinières nous ont régalés durant tout le séjour avec une bonne cuisine. Nous avons
