About the “Ecotour to Baikal Nature Reserves”, August’2006:
Now that the summer season is coming to a close, I thought I would drop you a line to express our thanks to you for organising a wonderful trip for us this summer. The Baikal ecotour was everything we hoped it would be, and more: wonderful scenery, visits to the most special and remote nature reserves around the lake, fantastic mountain walks, and a great group. So: thank you for making it all possible. We have lots of happy memories of Baikal, which I will treasure for a long time to come.
Thank you, too, for all your help with details before we set off. It made a great difference to us that you were able to answer my detailed questions and to be flexible about children, payments, etc. We knew nothing about Dersu Uzala other than your webpages, but we soon discovered on the trip what a great organisation it is, putting on the very best trips with the guiding inspiration of enjoying nature and preserving the environment. In Julya you had a great leader, who facilitated a very happy trip for us, and for our children.
Now we’re back to normal life, and the magic of Baikal is just a distant memory; but already I’m thinking of when I’ll be able to get back to Russia again, maybe in a year or two; so I’ll certainly think of joining another Dersu Uzala trip then, especially if Julya is the leader.
Thanks again for making this trip so special for us.

Dear ecotours, especially dear Nicolai,
I've had the most wonderfull holiday-experience last august. With a group, I travelled along Lake Baikal. Nicolai Maleshin was our guide and he made the journey to something i'll never forget. Baikal is really impressing and was totally different then i expected it to be. All kinds of flowers and a huge diversity in nature, really beautiful. Nicolai seems to know everything about Lake Baikal and Siberia, so i learned a lot. This was a totally unique experience!
Thanks a lot (again) to Nicolai!

A journey to Siberia, the Lake Baikal
It was my first journey to Russia. It leads me to Baikal. I visited two national parks and two “zapovedniks” (strict nature protected areaы) around Baikal. From the first moment when I saw this wonderful region I was absolutely fascinated by the deep blue color of the lake, the mountains around it and the sky with its wonderful colors. When we went on the motorboat along the Lake Baikal I could feel its wind and waves and I was also deeply impressed by the people who live in their wooden houses far away from civilization. The walking-tours were absolutely wonderful and we did them on Ol’khon Island (the west coast), in the mountains and in the forests (the east coast). I have never seen such a marvelous and untouched nature before this trip.
The guide we had was very competent. He showed us so many things every day, he had connections everywhere and he told us a lot about nature, people, the lake and the whole region. In the evenings at the camp-fire he told us stories about Siberia, people and brown bears. His care of us was very professional and individual. Now, back at home, I every day think of this wonderful journey. It had changed some of my ways of thinking about nature and people and now I know, I will come back in this wonderful and charming country again in future.

We rafted a river called Zun-Murin. This a very remote river which runs in Southern Siberia, South to North, starting in the mountains on the border between Russia and Mongolia, ending up in another Siberian river, which eventually ends up in the Arctic Ocean.
We had a group of 15 people, all of them from Russia, except me. There were four leaders: Ilya, Sasha, Volodja, and Refat, who are all very experienced rafters. The other people were for the most part friends who knew each other before the trip: Tania and Kirill, Katya, Svetlana, Max and Anna, Misha, Alexei and Julia, Max and myself. I had met a few of them before on a previous camping trip in Siberia, so it was great to see them again. I don't speak any Russian, but between the English that some of them speak and the efforts to translate specifically for me, I didn't have a problem communicating.
