Trans-Siberian Tours Starting in St Petersburg
Although St Petersburg is more of an off-shoot of the actual Trans-Siberian railway it is a very popular start point for trips that will ultimately terminate in Vladivostok or Beijing. The city itself is one of the highlights of Russia and the country’s cultural centre – an architectural masterpiece of palaces, theaters, canals and museums with a very different atmosphere to Moscow so you won’t feel you are covering the same ground.
“I’m now safely ensconced in Hanoi after a wonderful trip. It really did live up to the advanced billing and it was clear that you have put a lot of thought in to the choices of accommodation and the people you partner with along the way. And most of them knew you personally which was a big source of confidence for me.”
