A Word from our New Private and Luxury Tour Providers!

Meet our new tour partners!

You may have spotted a theme to our social media this week. If you haven’t visited our social media this week, I shall give you a moment to go take a look …






Welcome back. Noticed the theme?

New for 2015, we have partnered with a, handpicked, selection of tour operators in order to offer you four new luxury and private tours.

We have had our say about these new partners already this week, but we thought it would be better if they introduced themselves to you directly.

So without further ado, here they are …

Imperial Russia

With our new exciting Trans-Siberian tour on a luxury train, ‘Imperial Russia’ you will feel the imperial spirit of the endless expanses of Russia, see the unique nature of Siberia with your own eyes, enjoy Mongolian hospitality, get inspired by the mysterious culture of China and make new friends from all around the world.

Our ‘Imperial Russia’ train is a ‘hotel on wheels’, having different classes on board; VIP, First Class Plus, First Class, Standard and also Restaurant and Bar Cars.

Experienced local guides perform tours in English, French, German and Spanish. You will never get bored as folk shows, cooking master classes and concerts are included in the tour.

Lernidee’s extraordinary private train journeys in more than 40 countries allow clients to discover foreign lands, incredible geographical features and the world’s most famous railway lines from the comfort of a train carriage e.g. on the Trans-Siberian Railroad or on Africa’s colonial tracks.

Most of our journeys are tailor-made for small groups, private tour groups and individual travellers, ensuring truly memorable experiences. We take our clients to natural wonders and significant cultural sites and provide them with the authentic flavours of local life. Fascinating lectures, exciting excursions and delicious local dishes allow our clients to get a genuine impression of the travelled regions thus lifting them into an enthralling world of pioneering exploration.

Golden Eagle Luxury Tours

What’s the best thing about a Golden Eagle train journey? Is it that feeling of luxury embedded into everything you touch? The romance of rail travel which has inspired a thousand stories? Could it be the companionship of fellow travellers or the friendly, expert service of our staff?

What ties all these things together is the sheer, unrivalled scope of the whole experience. Luxury, romance and friendship go hand in hand as you travel across some of the world’s most breath-taking terrain. Nowhere is this stunning variety more apparent than on our Trans-Siberian route across Russia and into Mongolia.

On this, our flagship journey, you’ll experience things that simply have to be seen to be believed. Sights and sounds which photography and the written word can only go so far towards capturing.

So there you have it, straight from the source.

Has this inspired you to hop on-board a train to travel across the incredible expanse that is Eurasia and the Trans-Siberian railway?

Or does this bring back memories of journeys past?
