I did not do a day trip on the railway. My husband and I did 18 days split between hotels and rail journeys in an organised tour with Saga from Moscow to Beijing. This is an amazing trip but very hectic. Obviously with Saga everyone...More
I'm not one for taking trains but the Siberian Express is by far the best excursion I've ever had. From the dining car to our own private coupe, it is a highlight of my annual trip to Russia. Tickets are easily purchased online and the...More
I did a 3 week trip on the Trans-Siberian Railway, booked thru Road Scholar but Mir travel is in charge. We departed Beijing, thru China on the Chinese train 1 night, then transferred to Tzar's Gold Private Train, from border of Mongolia, thru Mongolia, stopping...More
They took my money but never arranged anything for me. I contacted Andrei, he said he would give me a refund but I lost contact of him after that. Please avoid this agency if possible. I'm surprised that there were people leaving good reviews for...More
Avoid travelling Rusrailtravel, scammers, lost all my money trusting them. Even before we booked everything there were signs but we ignored Thinking probably we were being over cautious , which was such a big mistake. Lesson learnt, even if it is few quid extra book...More
Nice trip! Don't do it for the scenery, but for the experience. Unfortunately we booked with Rusrailtravel. At first Andrei was very responsive and I paid half the amount upfront. We would get the tickets for the first two legs by mail and the others...More
The train journey wasn't as good as I expected. Whilst we covered and saw a lot of Russia,we had travelled from Irkutsk to Moscow onboard a train full of 2nd and 3rd class compartments, it was a bit boring. We were lucky to have a...More
Me and my husband travelled in August from Moscow to Beijing, and all the arrangements should have been made by RusRailTravel, led by Andrei Betsudov.
Despite having paid everything in large advance, Andrei failed to deliver any service in an acceptable way.

We travelled as a couple from Beijing to Moscow on the Tsars Gold (Zaren Gold) tourist train for a 15 day journey through China, Mongolia and right across Russia. We were placed in an English speaking group of 20 of assorted nationalities and under the...More
I traveled by train in Russia twice using Rusrailtravel (All-RussiaTravel Service): once from Kazan-St. Petersburg and another time from Moscow to Vladivostok. Both trips were great. On the full Trans-Siberian trip, each train was different- some newer, some older. Andrei was really helpful building my...More

Hello - this is easy to arrange there are many trains a day from Helsinki to St. Petersburg and prior to that you could train or fly to Finland. On arrival to Russia then we can book anything required - hotels , transfers , stops along the way - help with visas etc. On the train between Moscow and Beijing do you plan to stop or go all the way through via Mongolia ? Most people seem to stop at at least Lake Baikal as well as in Mongolia - feel free to contact me I have been arranging these journeys for over twenty years. Odette Fussey google my name you will find me !!
