Memorable parts? The Mongolian ger camp was wonderful. ...the local guides Tuya and Nimo were terrific and made the Mongolian stop off great. Lake Baikal was also amazing...great fun with the sauna and jumping in the freezing river..standing on the frozen lake...beautiful and memorable. The entire train journey was special and being escorted by a brilliant guide was just the best way to feel safe yet given every opportunity to meet and interact with travelers from everywhere, learn new...

Memorable parts? Seeing how the Tibetan people live, their friendliness and warm smiles. The way that welcomed us into their everyday worship in the monasteries. Just the simple things really. Tips? Don't have any expectations on anything. Let it happen. But on a practical level, always have loo roll handy and antibacterial stuff for toilets. Local benefits? Yes. Local hotels, local eating, Tibetan guide and making sure that we shopped in Tibetan stores. We used transport... (more)Sue Byrne

From
US $3,145

Memorable parts? The railway journey from Beijing to Moscow itself. Tips? Do not overload yourself with sleeping bags, liners, towels etc. On the trains, hotels etc. these are always provided wherever you stay. Local benefits? Overall rating? The operator should not skimp on providing transfers. At the start and at the end, we had to lug our belongings over rough pavements, crowds and walk quite a distance to get to our destination. (more)Sumitra Tikaram
Central Europe rail tour, 15 days
From
£1,259
excluding flights
Memorable parts? We had to vacate the train, as an unexploded ww2 bomb was discovered ahead near the tracks, a memory for sure but emphasized the history that surrounded us as we travelled through this area. The cities visited were outstanding, the architecture, and the people did not disappoint. Tips? It takes a bit to understand the rail/public transportation, be patient and it soon becomes familiar. Local benefits? By taking the train I would think we helped somewhat. Overall... (more)Dennis Allen

From

Memorable parts? Visiting Hellfire pass and the war graves cemetery near the river Kwai, very moving. Cycling round the ruins of ancient Sukhothai and chilling out in Chiang Mai. Tips? We caught the night sleeper train down from Chiang Mai to Ayutthaya, go 1st class if possible also the train passes through Ayutthaya station at 4:30am so we stayed on till Bangkok 1 hour 30 minutes down the line and got a train back north at a more respectable timeto check into the hotel.

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. (more)Sally Foote
The most memorable was staying in a ger at Terelj National Park [Mongolia] and walking in the park... The most exciting was seeing the cosmonaut memorial in Moscow and balancing a Kazakh hunting eagle on my arm outside Terelj. (more)Christine Johnstone

Traveling through Morocco was wonderful and it would be difficult to choose just one part, but the trip to the High Atlas is definitely one of the most impressive. (more)danila marinaro
Trekking in High Atlas mountains; ferry across from Algeciras to Tangiers; the Medina in Fez; Semana Santa in Malaga were the most memorable parts. (more)Miriam O
The train journeys, the excursion to volubilis roman town...great for cultural contrasts and for unsual itinerary but quite tiring (more)Lucia Brusati
Ireland vacation by train
From
£820
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Traveling by bike on Inis Mór. No real plans on the island. We just biked around and stopped at anything we found interesting. Great relaxing day. Tips? Go to some of the local pubs, like Garavn's in Galway. Sit at the bar, and have a chat with some of the locals. Much of Ireland has rapidly changed in the lest 10- 15 years, and a great way to understand that is to hear how from the locals. Belfast has some of the best restaurants I've ever been to at such a reasonable... (more)Michael Worthley
