Наш тур был в 2014 году в июле. Планировали его совсем заранее и были большие опасения, что уровень комфорта может не устроить. Но были очень приятно удивлены тем, что всё было на очень достойном уровне. Мы изменили программу в части проживания и останавливались в отелях, конечно, если была такая возможность. Но даже там, где не было отелей и нас принимали местные жители нам было достаточно комфортно, не смотря на стесненные условия проживания. Люди очень приятные и отзывчивые. Общие впечатления о Байкале я даже не буду описывать. Всё прекрасно!!! Особенное спасибо гиду Наталье!!!
