Denis - Private Guide in Irkutsk
Languages: Russian, English
Hello! My name is Denis Alekseev. I work as a university teacher. I teach finance, economics, business valuation etc. And as a hobby a work in English school. All my free time I prefer to spend outdoors. Since my childhood I love forest, mountains, rivers and all the beauties of the Nature.
I live in the wonderful place - Baikal region. The lake of Baikal is known as a deepest lake on Earth and also as a biggest reservoir of a fresh water. But this is also wild and uninhabited area. On the small area you can find a wide panoply of landscapes: from flat prairies to snow-white mountains. And in the center of it - Baikal. Local people call it "Glorious sea". And it is really breathtaking and sacred place.
My experience as a guide began when I meet my university colleagues from Vienna. That time I was involved at university exchange project and I was responsible for international relations. I decided to avoid popular places and show them something special. Something that I discovered by myself and I wanted to share this experience with others.
I know where to find a perennial glacier or meteor lake near Irkutsk. I know where is the best local food and drink. I know many legends, stories and fairy-tales about Baikal region. Each place here has its mystery.
I also fond of history of Irkutsk. This is an old city with a long history. And Irkutsk has a lot in common with Russian history as a whole. Maybe you want to know about Cossacks, Russian America or Russian revlolution? I can tell you a lot.
I'm ready to make together your own, personal tour around Irkutsk. We can contact in advance and according to your personal interests and needs develop the best tour for you. Whether you love hiking or you are an art-lover I will try to provide you the best service.
