Travel Escort

If you don't feel comfortable travelling on your own and yet don't want a group tour, try to locate your compatriots who travel the same route.

Another alternative is hiring a travel companion.

Let me know if you are interested, and I'll see who, from among my acquaintances is available. I'll try to set you up with an English-speaking buddy who knows the Russian railroad system.

Approximate cost: $50 and up per day plus expenses.


 

 

 
PLEASE NOTE THAT I CANNOT BUY TICKETS ORIGINATING OUTSIDE OF RUSSIA (BEIJING, ULAN-BATOR ETC.). TICKETS ORIGINATING IN RUSSIA MAY OR MAY NOT BE PROCURED - ASK ABOUT YOUR PLANNED DATE NO MORE THAN 60 DAYS BEFORE YOUR DEPARTURE. EX MOSCOW TICKETS ARE NO PROBLEM.

 

Most of my clients buy 2nd class (4 persons per compartment) tickets. 1st class (2 persons) are almost twice as expensive. Cattle car tickets are half the 2nd class price. Economy enthusiasts may consider local commuter trains (na sobakakh - on the dogs in local travel slang) which will take you across the continent for $50-80.
