Trans-Siberian Tours Starting in Vladivostok
Vladivostok is the start or finish of the original Trans-Siberian express line from Moscow and although it is not as popular a route as the Trans-Mongolian to or from Beijing it is definitely the preferred route for Trans-Siberian purists! One fantastic thing about this route is that Russia’s best scheduled train, number 2 the “Rossiya”, runs the line from Vladivostok all the way the 9,259 km to Moscow making it the world’s longest single train ride. If you want to make this trip all in one go we would recommend an early autumn departure for the spectacular colours or a winter trip to see Siberian in its icy finest.
“It was a memorable trip of a lifetime, very different, and much to reminisce in the future. I have great admiration for you and your partners to have put this together so well, considering the different trains, and their time tables. Would have been mind boggling for me! Not to mention the tour guides who were there to collect and deliver us on time to the trains,and giving us a great insight to the cities we visited. Many thanks.”
