Reviews

I have to praise my guide in Irkutsk. He was so helpful in sharing his knowledge and his passionate interest in local architecture and culture. He made the experience enjoyable and I learned more than from any guide book.

A magical, memorable journey! I was very happy with all the arrangements made by Regent and would love to travel with you again. Thank you – Spasibo!
