MIR Named Siberian Specialists in the Financial Times
In the “How to Spend It” section of the Financial Times, award-winning British journalist and traveler Sophy Roberts writes about border crossings on her custom, private journey to Siberia and Mongolia this past winter, created with the help of MIR. Accompanied by MIR founder Douglas Grimes, Roberts applauded MIR (and other like-minded tour companies) for their efforts to make even the most complicated routes easier for intrepid travelers.
“I admire Grimes for his doggedness with such journeys. It would be far easier to sell a plane ticket than fuss about with complex overland logistics. But in the tour-operating industry, which is being eroded by travellers booking their trips direct with hotels, guides and drivers on the ground, he is holding onto a critical piece of expertise that validates his company’s role as a trip designer.”
