    I did a partly guided tour with my wife & two friends, that gave us a local guide for 1 day at each city stop. These guides were excellent , spoke good English , had extremely good local knowledge & took us every where by local transport which was so cheap & fast. They had there own transport passes so we did not even have to pay there fare. For their entry to museums & show , they had free entry as they were official guides. The only exception to the one day guide was the Mongolian trip to the Ger camp where we were taken by minibus & had a guide for the 3 days we were there. This was a wonderful experience. The guide , driver, hotel, accommodation & locals looking after us were so helpful. We even had the fire lit in the evening & kept stoked until late by the happiest young people I have met. They came back & relit the fire again at 5pm in the morning. Service with a beautiful smile . Would love to return. Not one of the guides took us to places where they could collect commission. My wife & I enjoyed Beijing so much that we went back again at the beginning of May. We unfortunately used Nexus Tours & spent 9 days visiting what they called their sponsors which were solely aimed at extracting as much commission as they could from the captive visitors. I am looking forward to my next trip. St Petersburg & Moscow were amazing. Although I spent 3 days at each city I would like to return & stay longer. There seems to be a vendetta against Russia by the US & UK. Dont believe what you hear, go & visit , experience the friendly people & see the beautiful architecture. John Reay

    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.

    I love Tour Radar. They gave me all the support when I needed contacting the agent themselves to solve my problems while I was on the trip. The response was always quick and I also got the best deals, always cheaper than with the operator. Can't fault it really. Just booked my second trip with them this week.
