Liz "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!) If I did it again I would definitely do it in Summer so I could make the most of Lake Baikal and the Ger Camp. (My group spent the two days at the Ger Camp inside our Ger most of the time!) Our guides were great - helpful and knowledgeable...."

    Disappointing for the price paid... pushy honchos and changes to our accommodation (as per the prochure) without consulting with us prior to departure...

    Highlights were dog sledding at Lake Baikal and the lake itself! Sleeping in the ger camp and the great wall. The trip was amazing, met great people and the whole experience was awesome! - Myron

    The Ruski Huski was a great and really special experience. It's the best way to see these countries it was nice to travel with a group, but without a standard tour guide but with Honchos. It's a free way to travel and nice to share experiences with others. My highlight was the Ger camp because of the great location and the food. Also the dog sledding at Lake Baikal. - Lisette V

    Had an amazing time on the Ruski Huski! Was definitely a once in a lifetime experience! Our Mongolian honcho Odka was fantastic- she really made Mongolia a stand out destination. Riding horses, playing in the snow and dog sledding in Lake Baikal was so much fun! We were heading on a European journey and used this to get over, but it ended up being the highlight of our big round the world.
