Go Russia organised everything exceptionaly well and we felt well looked after. The guides were knowledgeable and pleasant, we were met on time every day. The train accommodation was comfortable and we enjoyed the experience more than we expected. The hotels were all of a good standard, including the ger, and the meal organisation was excellent.
Jeremy Andrews
The guides, the transfers, the drivers, were just unbelievably efficient and coordinated. Also the extra help from the London office for my French friend's visa was far above and beyond the call of duty. Every single detail organised by Go Russia was thought out, organised and executed with phenomenal precision.
Filomena Rosenthal
I just wanted to personally thank you so very, very much for all of your work in helping us to realise the trip of a lifetime. Our Go Russia Trans-Siberian journey was nothing short of perfection - the level of attention to detail ensured that everything went smoothly, and that we were very well looked after at every stage. The transfers, transport, accommodation and guides were all beyond excellent and we both had the most wonderful time - thank you.
Anette Dotson
I would just like to say a big thank you for organising a fantastic experience for me. I must say that I was extremely impressed with all of our tour guides and particularly Normi in Mongolia (you have already forwarded a thank you email for me) and Daniel in Beijing.
Nicolas Griffith
My personal thanks to you. All of us have enjoyed our trip. We enjoyed the Russian food in the Restaurant on the train. We did not have to buy food from the platform. The guides were excellent in all the places, knowlegeble and helpful. The days were filled with sight seeing and new venture. Hotels were good and the rooms were reasonably comfortable. Exprience in ”Ger” in Mongolia was excellent. Over all we had a great experience. I have already recomended ”Go Russia” to my friends.
Janet Lawrence
What a fantastic experience made all the better by your excellent organization and the wonderful guides we met - Sergei in Moscow, Ivan in Irkutsk, Tamir in Ulaan Bataar and 'Daniel' in Beijing. They were all well informed about their cities and countries, flexible in their approach to our requests and just good company. e were met on time and delivered to our trains on time. The various accommodations were very good and appropriate to the locations. All in all it was the most memorable time we have spent on a holiday - thank you.

Hong Kong Extension - 4 days Hong Kong has enjoyed special status since being returned to China by the British in 1997. This prosperous and vibrant territory is a world-class destination beloved by many for its curious and unique mix of eastern and western cultures. The towering skyscrapers of Hong Kong Island and the sheltered harbour that divides it from bustling Kowloon are perhaps its most iconic sight. But there’s much more to explore: outlying islands boast secluded beaches and charming fishing villages that are surprisingly rural yet easy to reach from the city. A short boat ride away is the neighbouring territory of Macao, returned by the Portuguese in 1999, and a fascinating contrast to Hong Kong.
