Overall we enjoyed the whole trip. Moscow is beautiful and clean. Thanks very much to our travel specialist for her patience and excellent organization over many months for this tour. The whole tour ran very smoothly and ran according to schedule except in Ulan Ude. The guides met us on time at hotels or at our train carriage on arrival. They helped us arrange porters for our heavy luggage when needed (too difficult to go up and down all the stairs at railway stations with no lifts). We had some problems at Ulan Ude with the guide not finding us on arrival and almost missing the train on departure. Overall the guides all spoke good English, (except in Ulan Ude), had very good local knowledge and were very kind and helpful. The new luxury train from Moscow to Kazan with ensuite was very comfortable. The other trains in first class were comfortable enough, but some were too hot at 26 degrees in the cabins at nights with doors closed. We were fortunate to have mostly fine but cool weather during our trip and lovely autumn colours out the windows. The food in the trains was not very good overall, but we were thankful for the hot water boiler in all the carriages. It was a really memorable adventure going on this trip, to be able to see the isolation of the villages and to imagine the hardships in the long cold winters..
