    REVIEW: Travelled on the Trans Mongolian railway - Peter, Australia

    Travelled on the TransMongolian Railway in Feb/Mar. Not too cold. Just take usual ski gear. Great scenery.

    Organisation by Discovery Russia was absolutely excellent. Every transfer and every guide were on time. The hotels were all very good.

    The Russian Sim (provided by DR) was great for keeping in contact with each other and DR.
