“The trip to Lake Baikal and Buratya clearly beat our expectations. Everything was perfectly organised, and Jérémie did not exaggerate that this trip was a real immersion into Russian culture, nature, and language. Vika gave our Russian at A1+ level a significant boost, and we feel now more at ease to use Russian in everyday situations. The stay in a private house, the use of a real banya (not the stuff normally prepared for tourists), and local food eaten in private homes gave us an insight into Russian traditions and culture that is hard to do on your own. The local guides spoke perfect English and must have been among the best available, immersing us into Russian history and traditions. We got and understanding of the old believers by visiting a village and spending an evening with them – putting some real flavour on the paintings you can see at the Tretyakovskaya gallery in Moscow. Would I recommend Immersion in Russia? Definitely, and highly. We are already planning our next trip to Russia. Thank you!”

“It was my first time traveling to Russia. I had always wanted to visit the country but never knew how or when. Then one day I found out about this tour company Immersion in Russia that specializes in tours around Russia. They offer a variety of different types of trips, like the Northern Lights Tour which is 6 days long and goes from Saint Petersburg to Murmansk with an overnight stay on the train along the way. I decided to take this trip. Initially, I was a bit anxious as Russia is a mysterious country for me. Ultimately, the trip was amazing, we saw northern lights and took incredible pictures on the coast of the Arctic Ocean in the village of Teriberka. We met with locals especially on the train I remember trying to have discussions with Russians traveling with us, it was a joyful moment I will always remember it. I highly recommend this trip which was well organized and I am grateful to have experienced all of it.”

I made the Trans-Siberian trip to Baikal Lake with Immersion in Russia in February 2019, and honestly it was a memorable trip. Everything was great, from the group I've been traveling with, to the guides which were very friendly and obviously experienced. We also had a native Russian teacher in our group all along the trip, and this combination of Russian classes with daily outdoor activities made the experience even more interesting and funny. In Russia, especially when you travel outside of the big cities, not everyone can speak English, so having some language classes, and explanations from the teacher definitely help me to make the most of my trip! I highly recommend the Immersion in Russia agency. They have shown great professionalism from the moment I decided to book a trip with them til the end. The people from their team I've been in contact with have been very helpful, and I can say that this trip has exceeded my expectations. In the future I'm considering to do the Aurora Borealis trip with them, or maybe the Kamchatka one, but probably next summer.

Great trip, fun group, nice guide and very tasty Russian food. Also as a quad enthusiast the optional but affordable quad ride was great fun. Thank you again to the team of the Izba for their warm welcome and hospitality ! I'll try to come back for the Winter program.
