The Budgeting Bolshevik was the perfect introduction to Siberia and Mongolia. The Honchos were relaxed and informative, and this tour allowed for organic interaction with locals.

Katy Corderoy, United Kingdom

I loved, loved, loved The Marco Polo tour! Each Honcho along the way took great care of our group, which was especially important to me as a solo female traveller. There was plenty of time off to do our own thing and we weren’t herded to the nearest tourist trap. Highly recommended

India Parish, Australia

What an incredible experience my journey has been. I couldn’t recommend it highly enough. The journey has changed my life. If you are looking for an adventure that you will look back on for years, then you should just do this.

Darren Sebire, Australia

The days on the train were an unexpected highlight. Eating noodles, meeting local people, drinking, playing games and looking at the changing landscapes. Just do it, and do it now!

Raissa Welten, Netherlands

From the cool St. Petersburg, bustling Moscow, clear lakes of Siberia and into Mongolia and China, The Vodkatrain transports you through the most incredible landscapes!

Riley Marks, Australia

On my own, I would never have experienced so many good things, met so many nice people and made such good friends. I would definitely do it again!

Mark Longworth, United Kingdom

Going in winter, the scenery was simply stunning. Visiting the ger camp in Terelj National Park in Mongolia was a real highlight. I’ve never been anywhere like that in my life.

Megan Morrall, United Kingdom

An amazing adventure seeing parts of the world many people never plan to see. Travelling as a group made it so easy to get around. Fantastic Honchos in each city!

Sarah Treloar, Australia

Some of my best memories are from Georgia. From drinking home-made cha-cha with locals to hiking to Gergeti Church for an amazing view of Mount Kazbegi covered in snow. Take me back!
