"Had an amazing time. Started in Beijing for a couple of days, wandering around with a tour guide who didn't direct us, simply laid out all the options and explained everything we wanted to know then let us do our own thing.

"This was an excellent experience that I thoroughly recommend. Firstly, the train itself is a very unique experience - amazing landscapes and scenery, interesting Russian people and the train itself all make it a very different trip.

"I can honestly say that taking the Vodkatrain was one of the best decisions I have made. It is not your typical 'tour', and I was really fortunate to be travelling with a wonderful group of like-minded people, many of whom I'm still in touch with three years later.
The trains are amazing, the scen..."

"I had a blast ticking the Trans-Siberian off my list... I would say if you were going to do it in Winter, don't underestimate how cold it will be (like I did!)
