Memorable parts? Visiting Mongolia was the highlight. We even had two extra days and a night in the country as we were 'bumped' off the train (with some other passengers) from Ulaan Bataar to Beijing. We ended up flying with Air China instead (this airline is not recommended - inflight service is truly grim!). Although it was disappointing not to complete the journey be rail, we were impressed with the operators for making excellent alternative arrangements. We stayed in an Eco-Ger camp and...

From
£2,699

Memorable parts? The railway journey from Beijing to Moscow itself. Tips? Do not overload yourself with sleeping bags, liners, towels etc. On the trains, hotels etc. these are always provided wherever you stay. Local benefits? Overall rating? The operator should not skimp on providing transfers. At the start and at the end, we had to lug our belongings over rough pavements, crowds and walk quite a distance to get to our destination.

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

Memorable parts? We had to vacate the train, as an unexploded ww2 bomb was discovered ahead near the tracks, a memory for sure but emphasized the history that surrounded us as we travelled through this area. The cities visited were outstanding, the architecture, and the people did not disappoint. Tips? It takes a bit to understand the rail/public transportation, be patient and it soon becomes familiar. Local benefits? By taking the train I would think we helped somewhat. Overall... (more)Dennis Allen
