    Mary & Jeff, Australia: A GREAT TRAIN TRIP

    My wife and I have just recently completed a train trip through Russia, Mongolia to China organised by Discoveryrussia.

    This trip started in Moscow and ended in Beijing with stops in Ekaterinburg, Krasnoyarsk, Irkutsk, Ulan-Bator. At all our train stops we were met with friendly drivers and guides who escorted us to our hotels. We were impressed by our guides with their extensive local knowledge which made this trip so enjoyable and also their compassion given to two 80yr travellers. On our return home to Australia we have praised Discoveryrussia to our friends.
