"We had an amazing journey and loved every minute of it. Your organization of the tour was excellent and everything went to plan. The trip was made very interesting by the informative and very pleasant guides we had in the major cities – they looked after us very well, were always on the platform to meet us and ensured we got the next train. That certainly took the worry out of the trip. The way the tour was organized allowed us plenty of free time after we had the introduction to the city. All the hotels were good, the Imperia Park in St Petersburg was excellent for friendliness and location (away from the main tourist area but near the underground). The hotel in Moscow was also in an interesting location and suited us very well (although quite a walk to the underground) and gave us a flavour of soviet style hotels.
Our time in Yekaterinburg was most enjoyable, the hotel was excellent and our tour guide an amazing and informative man who ensured we got the best from his city. Lake Baikal and Irkutsk were cold, sunny but again very interesting – the Circum-Baikal railway was a definite highlight of the trip – it was a lovely day and the al fresco lunch with pine nut vodka will stay with us for a long time. Ulan Bator was a very different experience, despite the dreadful driving conditions we had an excellent guide and most importantly a very careful driver. The Ger camp was set in an amazing valley away from the main camps and was quite delightful – and the visit to a local herdsman was memorable.
I could continue to write about our trip for several hours but I am sure you can see that we had a wonderful time. We would like to thank Real Russia for their excellent organization, from the original enquiries, the visa service, hotels, train tickets and the partner guides in the various cities. All of these things ensured that we had a trouble free experience and we would highly recommend Real Russia for anyone thinking about travel in Russia. If you require any more detailed feedback we would be happy to do so.
Once again, many many thanks for helping us to go on this trip."

"Nick and I have just got back to the UK after a fantastic two-week adventure on the Trans-Siberian and Trans-Mongolian routes, and I just wanted to write to you to register our big, big thanks!
You, and all the team at Real Russia, have done just the best job for us. You've been terrific from the start when we had lots of options and lots of changes of mind, and you were wonderfully patient and advised us very well. Once the itinerary was finalised you did briliantly with all the tickets and visas on time, everything clearly described, and all 100 per cent ready to go.
All the arrangements worked out perfectly. We've been delighted. You and Real Russia deserve all credit for a wonderful job and, again, many many thanks!
All best wishes"
