This is just a note to say how much Linda and I enjoyed our Grand Deluxe Trans Siberian Tour Rail adventure with Travel all Russia.
We were especially glad to have seen the subways in Moscow which were not on the original agenda, but that our guide made sure we saw.
Also, the opening ceremony at Naadaam in Mongolia was not in the schedule, but we were delighted to have a front row seat. It was an outstanding show.
The trains themselves were adequate and the final leg into China was truly first-class.
All hotels were superlative. If anyone wants to know about the food, I gained 5 pounds.
Our guide deserves special mention. She had not done this trip before and performed very well, getting better with each day. In addition to the Subway tour, she regularly offered walks at night after dinner to better understand the area we were visiting. On the train, she tutored us in the Russian language, Russian folk songs, and the proper way to drink vodka. During the singing of the folk songs, a number of non-tour people including the train attendant joined in. That was a lot of fun. On the train, she also secured a key from the attendant to lock all our doors whenever we went out to dinner or on a brief shopping trip during a stop. She was bright, cheerful, and willing to do whatever it took to make our trip enjoyable. She genuinely cared about all her tour participants!
Thanks for your help in setting up the trip of a lifetime. We have recommended and will continue to recommend this trip to our friends.
