    I'm on a Sundowners tour of trans Siberian railway right now. The hotel quality is extremely poor in Beijing and marginally better in Ulanbator. When I complained the local agent was only able to offer a five star alternative, which I was asked to pay for, even though I found many available hotels on the internet of less than five star. Despite having requested double rooms, and paying a single supplement for the tour, I have been booked into a single room in Irkutsk. Once again I've had to complain. Don't use this company if you expect decent accommodation, although the lIstvyanka accommodation was quite nice despite being fairly basic. I spoke to other couples on the same itinerary who have booked through Sundowners and they also complained about the standard of accommodation. Hopefully things will be better in Kazan and Moscow. Somehow, with this company, I doubt it.

    I went with my husband who is blind. We are both in our 60s. We had no trouble, taking our gear in backpacks so we could hold hands for moving on and off trains and other tranportation. There are showers available at every station with a stop of 30 minutes or more. The scenery was great. Our tour guide, Olga, in her twenties managed her group of 11 seniors with no problems. She arranged wonderful events at all the overnight stops - Ulaanbator, Irkuts, Lake Bsilkal, Moscow, St Petersburg, Beiging. Dave played music with the locals at the Gers and on trains for other passengers. Highly recommended.

    Wonderful journey, extremely well-organised, punctual pick-ups, very good hotels. Ger accommodation brilliant in Karakoram - friendly hosts and fabulous horse riding out on the steppes. Recommended to all, but a little rough on us over 60's. Train journey well worth doing even if you don't stop over en route. - view from the train mind blowing.
