    Gary Edwards, Australia: Thank you for a very interesting trip!

    In July 2019 my wife and I went with Discovery Russia from Beijing to Moscow by train. This is not your common trip. This is to remote parts of the world and among very different cultures. We went to the Naadam Festival in Mongolia after riding through all of China. Then we went into Siberia going east to west. Then European Russia to Moscow. Our eyes were opened to a world we had never seen before.

    Our guides were great and all of our connections were very smooth. For such a long trip with so many connections things could not have gone better. We had a local guide in each town we stopped in, and they did a good job. We had a great time, we learned a lot, we saw a lot and we met people from another part of the globe. Discovery Russia did a very good job. I would give them nine out of ten points.
