“Why fly?”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We travelled by train between Moscow and St Petersburg both ways and were very impressed. Plenty of leg room, good functional seats and baggage areas.

“Excellent way to travel”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We went from Moscow to Saint Petersburg. I bought the tickets on line in advance. I payed more but I felt comfortable because it saved me time. The train is clean, comfortable and the service is good. It took around four hours to get to the destination. It is a very good option. Once you get to Saint Petersburg there is a metro station and you can go anywhere.

“Love to ride the Rails”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

We took the train from Moscow to St. Petersburg. $ PM train arrives in 4 hours just in time for dinner. Timing is great. The vistas aren't exceptional as most of the countryside between Moscow and St. pete is woods and or marshland. But the train and the people on it made the trip a fun experience.

“quick and nice”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Well, it delivers what it promises - the trip from Moscow to St. Petersburg takes just 4 hours or 3.5 hours with a more expensive ticket. The ticket price is very high comparing to the usual train service, but it's worth it. Snacks and drinks on board, free wi-fi connection.
