Solo one day tour with Ivan
We made a two-day trip from Irkutsk to the lake Baikal and the Olkhon Island. It was an amazing experience!
I can warmly recommend the tour and Baikal Secrets. Everything was organized very well. The communication with Ivan before the trip was excellent. Our guide, Anna, was such a lovely person. She told us most interesting stories and made our trip memorable. The cars were warm and comfortable and our drivers were also great and made us feel safe during the drive. The guesthouse was very clean and cozy and the food was also good. And all this with a reasonable price.
We really enjoyed our tour and the services of Baikal Secrets.
Amazing experience in the frozen lake Baikal
We loved our two-day trip to Olkhon island with guide Roman, organised by Ivan and Baikal secrets. The ice-bound lake didn't disappoint, the scenery was fantastic, price was good and the communications excellent. Roman was a polite, knowledgeable young guide who looked after us well during the trip and showed us all the sights. We look forward to returning to the area in warmer weather.
Olkhon with Roman
Ivan organised our 3 days in Listvyanka. On the first day we took a day tour of the area led by Ivan. He also organised dog sledding with lunch in the forest and a hovercraft tour of the lake the following days. The whole trip was well organised and Ivan was very helpful and friendly throughout. I would definitely recommend Baikal secrets.
