Tour: Transsiberian Railway
Highlights of the trip: There very many – The trainride from Moskva to Irkutsk, absolutely the camp at the Ger in Mongolia, and the horse ride – it was fantastic. Also the stayover in a small fishing village near Irkutsk was very nice, and the tour round Irkutsk was brilliant – I liked the lokal guide Demitri very much. But of course not as much as I liked Ekaterina :). The Great Wall was of course perfect – and I walked all the way up – which I didn´t do the first time I was there. I very much liked the hotel in Beijing too – it was the perfect place – in the Hutong area and near the good spots. Ekaterina was – and I have been on many journeys – extraordinary, she was full of good humour, she was able to gather the group although there were differencies, I had the pleasure to share room with her in Beijing, because it was a good solution for me and my friend, she was flexible – she was very well equipped with necessary things – when you needed it. She was at the top.

Tour: Transsiberian Railway
I was completely satisfied with everything on the journey, and I can only recommend our guide Katia and Penguin Travel in the highest degree! It is difficult to pinpoint highlights but if I must, I think I would mention our stay at the ger-camp, closely followed by the wonderful experience of walking up and down that busy hutong-street just outside the Yan Dong Hotel. I really enjoyed myself!
