What you'll do

SPECIAL OFFER FOR BANDY CHAMPIONSHIP FANS! (pm for details)
We will explore Irkutsk city center and its historical heart with sites walking and talking. Main streets, some of the monuments on the way.
But I believe that sites are nothing without bites. What do I mean? Of course an opportunity to try true Russian and Siberian cuisine. Do you know what moonshine is? What about dumplings with different fillings? You will have a chance to try it or choose some other options.
After food or drinks, we continue to explore the city and move dipper to the streets and will see the only river that flows out of Baikal lake ( the deepest in the world).
Other things to note
The price now is a limited offer! Don't hesitate to join - it's going to be not only fun but informative :)

Where you'll be

The historical and cultural centre of the city might be found by anybody coming to Irkutsk but the way you walk and notice things is different. That's why I suggest exploring the Karla Marx street in details looking at each building that has a special history longer than a century. A local restaurant, a bar, Siberian wooden architecture, the Angara river.

deep impression for this city tour since the trip just gives me a quite different experience at Irkutsk. our guide Olesia is a brilliant talker and she would never let you feel bored. when we walk with Olesia on the street and listen her introduction of each historical building, i start to look at the city in a completely different way and get to know her deep love of the city. Highly recommend travelers to try this city tour experience.

I really enjoyed the evening tour with Arina. The tour gives you a very good idea about the history, the main sites and the food in Irkutsk. Furthermore, I could improve my Russian language skills and my knowledge about Russian culture. Defenetly a must-do when in Irkutsk!

We had an unforgetable tour with Yana today and learned a lot about the history and story of the city. It' s so interesting and we think we cannot see this city in this way without the guidance of Yana. Yana is warmth, clever and humorous and thanks for her help again!

Ein sehr schöner Kulturspaziergang. Wir haben viel über die Geschichte von Irkutsk gelernt, sehr gut gegessen eine sehr gemütliche Bar besucht. Marina war sehr freundlich, kompetent und hat uns auch neben der Historie einen Einblick in die sibirische Sagenwelt gewährt.
