    Ron and Lindy G - Trans Mongolian Explorer 06 - 29 June. We have just now returned from overseas and would like to thank Sundowners Overland, and in particular your travel advisor Bronwyn for the assistance given in planning our independent version of the Trans Mongolian Explorer journey in June. We left Australia feeling quite well prepared and comfortable with the pre travel advice, and travel arrangements. The assistance of an Ambassador on the first day of arrival in each city was an excellent introduction, with the additional plus of local 'know how' in commuting from A to B. Your Ambassadors, Snow in Beijing, Alex in Mongolia, Roman in Irkutsk, and Diane in St. Petersburg, were all amazingly knowledgeable and extremely interesting to talk with, a huge asset to your company. Re.. Moscow Ambassador please see below. The experience was brilliant and everything worked well. This journey has given us one of the most interesting and memorable trips we have ever had.
