Why Choose MIR

MIR offers you the best of both worlds: all the assurances of working with a more than 25-year-old American based travel company staffed by experts with first-hand destination expertise; plus all the benefits of on-site quality control from the MIR affiliated field offices located in Western Russia, Siberia, Ukraine and Uzbekistan. There's no other American tour outfitter that deals exclusively with this slice of the globe, and none with more first-hand experience, stronger on-the-ground contacts, or more affection for the region.
