Early birds who book the following eastbound 2014 Trans-Siberian Rail Journeys and Silk Road by Private Train tours by March 31, 2013 will enjoy this substantial discount. Private Train tours are in a class of their own, offering the opportunity to experience remote destinations in unparalleled style. These all-inclusive tours feature specialty train cars that were not available to the public until 2007.
Trans-Siberian Classic Route: The Classic Route operates from Moscow to Vladivostok and in reverse. Spanning almost 6,000 miles of track connecting these two cities, the Classic Route takes in the southern tip of Lake Baikal and the charming Siberian cities of Irkutsk and Ulan Ude, and travels along the Chinese border. Watch the cities and industrial centers give way to little villages and miles of wilderness.
Trans-Siberian Mongolian Route: From the Moscow Kremlin to the Siberian taiga and the Mongolian steppe, this private train journey celebrates three different cultures: that of the modern Muscovite, hailing a taxi in front of an 800-year-old palace; the Baikal Siberian, proud heir of Cossacks, indigenous Buryats and czarist political exiles; and the Mongolian nomad, drawn to the capital, UlaanBaatar, for the beloved Naadam Festival. Join the crowd singing the praises of the country’s best in wrestling, archery and horse-racing.
The Silk Road by Private Train: The Princes of Muscovy traded precious furs – sable, ermine and fox – for the silks of China that reached their borders on the backs of swaying camels along the old Silk Road. Today you can make the epic journey between Moscow and Beijing on a comfortable private train instead of, as in the old days, hazarding the wild deserts and fierce tribes of Central Asia with a caravan of well-armed merchants.
The Silk Road by Private Train: Russia and Central Asia: Covering the portion of the 21-day Silk Road by Private Train between Moscow and Almaty, Kazakhstan, this journey provides the perfect vantage point from which to appreciate the dramatic contrasts of this region, stretching from European Russia to Almaty, Kazakhstan, and visits several UNESCO sites along the way.
