    CHECK OUT WHAT OTHERS SAY ABOUT TRAVELLING WITH US

    Ernesto, USA: China, Mongolia and Russia in 27 days.

    I choose Discovery Russia because I found a complete itinerary that I was looking for with China, Mongolia and Russia in only 27 days. Excellent service with reliable local tourist guides that know very well their region in particular and the country in general.

    Recommended to adventurous travelers that want to deepen in Chinese, Mongolian and Russian cultures/history using the train as main transportation. The best was to participate during hand on hand activities such as Tatar cuisine or painting at the Gorodets.

    Visiting the main palaces and museums in St Petersburg requires more time. That’s the reason to get back in another time to visit specific places and continue learning, enjoying the beauty and all that the city offers. Thanks to Tatiana and Andrei for their service, dinner at the end of our trip was amazing. I hope to travel with Discovery Russia again in the nearest future.
