    Trans Siberian Russia - Peter Megens, USA

    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.
