review 29 Dec 2012

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The Lake Baikal Homestay and the Mongolian Ger Camp... both have incredible memories for me that will stay with me for life!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Go with an open mind... chat to as many people as you can on the train! Take cards and make sure you buy some vodka before you get on as you won't have another chance. I think it is the people that make it, so chat to as many people as you can! Don't be scared of buying food on the platform... it is so worth it!

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Definitely!! It was obvious everywhere we went that we were supporting local people and environmentally aware - collecting rubbish etc!

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

5 out of 5!

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

I loved the train journey, chatting to the locals, making food, using the hot water urns at the end of the carriage and having the wheels changed on the Mongolia/China border was a fantastic experience.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Take warm clothes if you are going in the autumn and a mug and spoon for the train. Learn some Russian before you go and take maps of the train journey as these are a great way to start conversations.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Yes.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Brilliant. Could not fault this trip at all.
