Georges and Barbara, Luxemburg: A great trip to Irkutsk and the Baikal LakeWe had a great time in Irkutsk as well as on and around Baikal Lake. I was an exceptional and well organized trip by Irina from Discovery Russia. Our local guide, Anastasia, was very good: well qualified, proactive, perfectly fluent in English, always in a good mood and - something of value to us - able to find the right balance between explaining things in depth and giving us some privacy to enjoying sights and moments by ourselves. She definitely did a great job! The logistical arrangements by Discovery Russia during the trip worked out fine and were totally adequate. The same is true for the pre-trip communication and everything related to invoicing and payments. Thank you again Irina! Georges & Barbara
