It was a wonderful trip with a lot of fun and magnificent landscapes. Our guide, Maria, was really great with a lot of useful explanations and kindness. Sasha, the owner of the buggy was also very kind and allow our kids to drive and to enjoy our trip. We definitely recommend Baikal Nature and this tour in order to mix the discovery of Baikal lake and to feel as the only ones on the ice.
