I have to say we had an amazing time on the Genghis Khan Trans Mongolian with On the Go. Guides Jin and Nomin were outstanding. It was faultless ! Will definitely book with you again. ”
Just thought that I'd let you know that we've had a great trip - I've just made it down to Shanghai, ready to fly back on Monday.
The stop-overs in Moscow, in Irkutz for the Baikal trek and Ulaan Bataar were superb - I have to highlight the ger camp which was superb and in such a wonderful setting.
Your representatives in both places were excellent - as was Constantin in Moscow.
Yeakaterinburg may be in the guide books as the "death capital" of Russia - the Romanovs, the mafia etc, but it has so much more to offer tourists.
Staying in a homestay will give you a warm welcome and an insiders view to the city. In winter you can go huskie sledding, skiing and snowmobiling. In summer there is trekking, horse riding and rafting. English speaking guides are available. The town is easy to get round with all the major sights in walking distance. Shopping, eating and drinking are well catered for - a definate stop not to be missed on any transiberian journey.
1. Yekaterinburg - is a very safe city
2. I would recommend a home stay - not hotel
3. Romanov tour- very interesting
4. 3 days in Yekaterinburg would be better - much more to see and do
5. drink lots of vodka! ”
Yekaterinburg has a lot to offer to tourists. During our stay we were taken to khaski dog sledding a fantastic day, we really enjoyed ourselves. The following day we had an interesting tour of the city and were taken to the Europe/Asia border. In all a very enjoyable stay made even special by our host Nonna. Our guide Natalia was very helpful and informative, many thanks.”
I did the Highway to Moscow tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. Right from the start, my agent Janet was extremely helpful. She replied to e-mails quickly and answered all questions.
The pick ups and transfers were problem free and easy to spot. The hosts of the home stays in Russia were amazing. They were extremely friendly and cooked us delicious traditional food.
My friend and I had enough free time to wander by ourselves and we met some great people on our tour.
I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone that is interested in doing a Trans-Siberian railway trip.”
We really enjoyed our Trans-Siberian experience especially our stays in Lake Baikal, Terelj NP and Beijing. The family we stayed with were very hospitable, friendly and excellent food. ”
