Days 1-2: To Berlin 

We meet at our dedicated Departure Office in London St Pancras International, before embarking on an extraordinary journey across almost half of the globe by train.

In Brussels we join Europe's high-speed network, travelling in First Class via Cologne to Berlin, where we transfer to our hotel, the NH Berlin Mitte, for a two-night stay.

On Day 2 we enjoy a fascinating 'east meets west' tour of Berlin, admiring impressive Imperial buildings and introducing the sights of this once divided city.

Days 3-4: To Warsaw 

Today we continue our journey east, travelling across the Polish border to the impressive city of Warsaw, where we spend the night.

On Day 4 you enjoy a guided tour of Poland's capital. Take a stroll around Warsaw's quaint Old Town and explore the atmospheric streets, lined with merchants' houses, craft shops and cafés. Later we board the overnight sleeper train for a journey to Moscow.

Days 5-6: Moscow

After a journey across Poland and into Russia, we arrive in Moscow in the late morning. Upon leaving the train we transfer to the 5-Star Four Seasons Hotel Moscow, where we later enjoy dinner in the evening. If you select are fly option of this tour, today is the day you will join the rest of your group. We spend Day 6 in Moscow, where we take a tour of its famous sights, including Red Square and St Basil's Cathedral.

Day 7: Kazan

Our first stop on our Trans-Siberian adventure is Kazan, the capital of Tatarstan on the River Volga. The city is renowned for its ornate buildings, including the colourful onion-domed cathedral, the inspiring Kul Sharif Mosque in the grounds of the impressive Kazan Kremlin, and the classical style buildings of the university.

Days 8-9: Yekaterinburg and Novosibirsk

Today we cross the Europe-Asia divide and arrive in Yekaterinburg, founded in 1723 by Peter the Great. Here we visit the site where the Romanov family, headed by Tsar Nicholas II, was murdered in 1918, now marked by a church dedicated to their memory.

On Day 9 we alight in Novosibirsk, the capital of Siberia, for a guided tour of the city's sights, including the Opera House.

Days 10-11: To Irkutsk

We spend Day 10 on the train enjoying the passing scenery as we travel through the Sayan Mountains. On Day 11 we arrive in Irkutsk, founded by Cossacks. The city is affectionately known as 'the Paris of Siberia'. 

Day 12: Lake Baikal

Today we experience one of the true highlights of our journey through Siberia. The Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Express will be steam-hauled, as we skirt the shores of vast Lake Baikal, the largest freshwater lake in the world. We continue on to visit the small village of Listvyanka, nestled at the foot of the surrounding hills.

Days 13-15: Ulan Ude and Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia

Today we arrive in Ulan Ude, the capital of the Buryat Republic. Here we visit the Old Believer's Village, where we have the opportunity to learn about the culture and history of these religious people as we are treated to a traditional meal and enjoy a concert featuring local musicians and dancers.

On Day 14 we arrive in Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia. Passing the Genghis Khan monument, we visit the National Museum before enjoying a traditional lunch. Day 15 is spent on board as we continue east through this vast and varied country.

Days 16-17: Remote Siberia

The train follows the Shilka and Amur Rivers close to the Chinese border today. Our route takes us across an area of permafrost, as remote as it is dramatic.

During Day 17 we reach the most easterly point of our journey and as we head towards the Pacific coast, we enjoy a farewell dinner on board.

Days 18-19: Vladivostok and home

After travelling across 11 time zones and over 8,000 train miles, our epic journey concludes today, as the Trans-Siberian Express arrives in Vladivostok. We take a tour of the city before transferring to the Hyundai Hotel for one night.
