Le lac Baikal est une expérience formidable. Y passer une nuit sous la tente est intéressant mais pour y passer plusieurs nuits, il faut nettement améliorer la qualité de chauffage et des repas. Une journée sans rien faire sur le lac n'est pas intéressant. Trop d 'heures de transfert en minibus sans aucune activité. Je conseille vivement d'améliorer le rapport activités / temps en transfert.

Points positifs : - très bonne ambiance de groupe - guide très sympa et très pro, connaît parfaitement le terrain - transports/transferts et nuitées très bien organisés - souvenirs inoubliables du Baïkal en hiver Points négatifs : - j'aurai aimé un plus petit groupe - pas assez d'infos sur la région, peuples, religions, culture, animaux... - programme non tenu : nous sommes allés au rocher

Chère Alison, nous vous remercions de vos remarques constructives qui nous permettrons d'améliorer la qualité de nos prestations ! Premièrement, nous vous prions d'excuser le retard avec le départ pour l'île d'Olkhone. Un participant du groupe a perdu son bagage et il a été nécessaire de récupérer sa valise avant le trekking. C'est pour cela que le groupe est arrivé sur l'île plus tard et la visi

Very nice tour, however there is possibility to improve; making the groups not troo big (mine was 14 guests which is too much for in tent dining p ex), also the trek on the lake could have been longer for me - now there was a part of the lake trek done by 4x4. A small remark to the guide too; maybe better to inform the evening at dinner what timing/activity there will be the next day and what to wear.

Thank you for your comment! We have already planned the improvements for our ice camp for making it me comfortable. As for the trekking distance, we just wanted to balance between very sportif tourists and those who have no any experience. Hoping to see among our future clients!
