    Kenneth Nobin, Austraia: Trans-Mongolian Express

    A well organised program from beginning to end with excellent communication from tour planner Taniana In Moscow and tour consultant Hope in Sydney. Tour guides in each city were exceptional. Very good accommodation and included breakfasts along the way. The pace was leisurely and enjoyable. Mary and I had a thoroughly awesome adventure. Will highly recommend Discovery Russia.
