Details

A whistle-stop express journey on the world’s greatest railway, a journey linking two great, if contrasting cultures… from Moscow eastbound across the endless forests of Siberia and the Mongolian steppes, then south to Beijing. Recommended for travellers with severe time constraints.

The direction of this itinerary is Eastward (West to East), Moscow TO Beijing.

The itinerary detailed here uses the standard train and is for more independent travellers. If you prefer different levels of travel comfort, do consider our luxury private train options.

We have been operating a wide variety of independent programmes and tours into Russia since 1989, starting with university language study groups. As Russia opened up we introduced Trans Siberian train journeys at a real price. We were the first to introduce homestay accommodation. Others were paying high costs while our clients were paying low cost! Same bed, same cabin!

All this experience results in

  • great trips
  • up to date information
  • reliable partners at all stops means safety for you
  • accountability

You will also notice our name is referenced in most of the guidebooks relating to these areas. In fact we have helped many of the Lonely Planet guidebook authors travel around Russia.
