Luxury Trans-Siberian Tour on the Tsar's Gold Private Train Beijing to Moscow

15 Day Tour, from £3175 per person

One of the most iconic railway journeys in the world, travel from Beijing to Moscow in style aboard the luxury Tsar’s Gold private train. As the ever-changing landscapes of Russia, Mongolia and China pass by, the train makes regular stops for sightseeing, including a break at Irkutsk to visit beautiful Lake Baikal, the world’s deepest freshwater lake which stretches for nearly 400 miles through south-eastern Siberia. Once you’ve taken a dip (rumoured to add years to your life), step back aboard to sample Russian vodka and caviar and trundle on. This tour also visits the Mongolian capital, Ulaanbaatar and passes through the vast landscapes of the Gobi Desert.

Please note that this journey is also offered beginning in Moscow and ending in Beijing.
