    Memorable parts? The Mongolian ger camp was wonderful. ...the local guides Tuya and Nimo were terrific and made the Mongolian stop off great. Lake Baikal was also amazing...great fun with the sauna and jumping in the freezing river..standing on the frozen lake...beautiful and memorable.

    Memorable parts? Seeing how the Tibetan people live, their friendliness and warm smiles. The way that welcomed us into their everyday worship in the monasteries. Just the simple things really. Tips? Don't have any expectations on anything. Let it happen. But on a practical level, always have loo roll handy and antibacterial stuff for toilets. Local benefits? Yes. Local hotels, local eating, Tibetan guide and making sure that we shopped in Tibetan stores. We used transport... (more)Sue Byrne

    £1,530

    Memorable parts? The most memorable parts of my holiday were, firstly, Moscow that I absolutely loved and where I would like to spend more time, secondly, the Great Wall of China and, thirdly, the cultural show in Ulaanbataar. The most exciting part was seeing the snow! Tips? Nobody notices (or cares) if you wear the same things every day. Take as little luggage as you can. Remember that you have to carry all your luggage around. Have some washing done in the guesthouse on Lake... (more)Barbara Shaw

    All of the holiday was fantastic. I particularly enjoyed the train journey from Beijing to Lhasa. The visit to the nunnery was fun. There was nothing on my trip that I didn't enjoy so it's hard to choose 1 thing I enjoyed most. (more)Jules Palmer
    Excellent....Go with an open mind, an attitude of adventure. It is a different country. You will not find the same facilities as at home. The food is different. But it's all part of the adventure. (more)Yoginee Patel
    It was very memorable and exciting, and a good idea to go on a tour through a country that would be difficult to navigate alone. (more)Laura Tomlinson

    Memorable parts? Experiences- simply seeing the different cultures and the people Tips? Bring cash for exchanging to local currency. Many of these countries do not have ATMs that take foreign cards or are very difficult to find. Cash is king, both Euro and USDollars work but USDollars are king Local benefits? Partcularly because this trip was in the off season for a lot of these countries having tourists visit spending money in local restaurants, shops and buying souvenirs... (more)Emer Levins

    I loved the train journey, chatting to the locals, making food, using the hot water urns at the end of the carriage and having the wheels changed on the Mongolia/China border was a fantastic experience. (more)Sally Foote
    The most memorable was staying in a ger at Terelj National Park [Mongolia] and walking in the park... The most exciting was seeing the cosmonaut memorial in Moscow and balancing a Kazakh hunting eagle on my arm outside Terelj. (more)Christine Johnstone
