Russia Experience has been offering unusual and exciting itineraries to Russia, Mongolia and China using the Trans-Siberian Express for more than 20 years. We are based in the UK, with expert staff on hand to guide you through the booking and visa process, as well as being about to advise you on the route and destination choices that would suit you best. All our advisors have personal knowledge of each and every stop along the route. We can help you fulfil your dream or inspire you to a new adventure on the most famous railway route in the world.

Travel, by itself, changes lives. It liberates, rejuvenates, teaches, and it can be the experience of a lifetime. Travellers learn about new cultures, food, languages, customs and people. Traveling is an experience like no other. That`s why we are called The Russia Experience. From start to end we make the booking experience easy. The experience we offer is about all the places and adventures along the route.

In 2018 the football World Cup takes place in Russia. We suggest that if you plan to take a Trans-Siberian journey next year that you avoid between mid June and mid July as without doubt it will be a hard time to travel. Not all the cities that are hosting games are on the Trans-Siberian route but still the vast distances between some of the games will mean that Russian Railways will have a lot to handle.

Looking forward to helping you plan this iconic journey.
