More about travelling aboard the Trans-Siberian

Our Trans-Siberian Railway journeys are semi-independent and not group tours, so you'll normally be travelling by yourself or as part of your own private group. We organise all of the elements necessary to make your journey smooth and hassle free, from the train tickets and accommodation en route to the rail station transfers and optional sightseeing tours and excursions. Our Trans-Siberian itineraries allow the adventurous semi independent traveller to hop aboard in Beijing or Moscow and get off at intermediate points en route. If there is not an itinerary that suits your requirements, we're also more than happy to tailor-make your Trans-Siberian Railway journey for you.
