Review by Jean-Marc

My wife and I travelled from Moscow to Ulan Bator by Trans-Siberian Railway. The travel agency Another Russia created a great program in the exact accordance of our wishes that included additional stops in a couple of cities and homestays with locals. I tip my hat to your team and especially Ksenia, who made our trip unforgettable. We will definitely book the next trip to St. Petersburg with your travel agency.
