  • Of course, we expected more. I think it is for foreigners, or for people living in metropolitan areas, who do not know village life. Me so left his village (where we live now) and came to similar. Has not caused any emotions.

  • Tour and half that price not worth it. Looks like this farce as follows: you along with a crowd of other tourists (recruit people much bigger them more profitable) slid into the courtyard of the House. Meets the "guests" in Buryat woman costume and gives everyone some milk drink, circling a wooden Bowl from which all make the throat. We had 40 people, they gave us two bowls. According to their custom, to refuse from the General SUP Cup means not to respect. All frown, but drink. Next we took the room where tables stood glasses with some of their vodka and all on a spoon of sour cream with something like cottage cheese. Got Buryat girl told rhyme. Another girl sang the ditty is inconsistent not getting any note. Then came the two boys showed "the struggle of the Buryat boys", too, apparently without training and level of the speech of children at the party in kindergarten. Then an elderly burjatka told Visiting Buryat legend. Because diction she had very bad (due to the absence of half of the teeth), then there is little understood. EVERYTHING! THAT'S ALL! For it is one thousand two hundred roubles per person and can be free, Hello everyone. We also went to the yurt, which stood in the courtyard. Inside a yurt were stuffed animals, and in another a few household items. Wanted to take a picture with the old lady who told legend, but she wanted more money for it: 200 USD for one shot with each. They offered to buy from them. After this miraculous event we asked his guide (with whom we come to Olkhon Island), but why so expensive and why in "Buryat village" we met only women and children, and where their men? What got the answer: "and they have almost all the men are in jail. And the money from this excursion goes them gang ". All curtain.

  • But in principle there can be and are within walking distance)) Very nice atmosphere, not haunting and interesting story about the life and lifestyle of the indigenous people of the island. Show household items bore, Yurt, you can even taste the dishes of national cuisine. Not everyone, of course, but something can be. I went to TARASUN, the national alcoholic drink))). In our view, familiar, moonshine, but not such a strong and very mild in taste. If you're lucky, because all depends on the season stay on Olkhon, you can buy souvenirs, many of them handmade. I had no luck, unfortunately ... On the length of the tour is not large, about a quite interesting, because it was held in the form of a very lively conversation, asked riddles, etc. in General, if there is a possibility to go, go, you are very good and comfortable to spend time.
