    Trans Siberian Russia - Carmel Stott, Australia

    Thank you Discovery Russia for giving me such a wonderful experience in Russia. From pickup at St Petersburg to drop off in Vladivostok everything was well organised and professional. Alex, our tour leader was always available and willing to help when needed. He helped ensure that I will always cherish the memories of this holiday.

    The local guides - Daria in St Petersburg, Igor in Moscow, Jána in Kazan. Konstantin in Yekaterinburg, and Juliet in Irkutsk were all outstanding. Their knowledge and enthusiasm greatly enhanced all our visits.

    I have no hesitation in recommending Discovery Russia to everyone.

    Rosina Gould, UK: Wonderful trip!

    I was skeptical about booking with Discovery Russia and I’m glad I took the plunge as I had a fantastic trip, great sightseeing in Moscow and amazing trip on the Trans Siberian Railway, Discovery Russia’s pure professionalism and expertise put me at ease from start to finish as I was a lone woman traveler. I had a brief encounter at the Mongolian border which was scary, they were on hand immediately and traced my every move. I can’t thank them enough for such an adventure. If you are thinking of a trip with them - don’t hesitate go for it, you will not be disappointed.

    Peter Megens, USA: Discoveryrussia's Trans Siberian first class!

    We approached 3 tour companies to help us plan our trip to Russia-one English, one American and Discovery Russia in Australia. We wanted to do the Trans Siberian Railway from Moscow to UlanBataar. We found DiscoveryRussia, both in Australia and through their Russian arm, to be by far the most responsive to deal with. In addition they had a great range of knowledge and satisfied us that they could handle the Russian end capably. That proved to be the case. They were on top of every aspect of our trip.
