Transsib. Baikal
Along Lake Baikal

Dear Client    

We are very pleased to present you with our Trans Siberian Private Train Journey.

The train is chartered by Lernidee Trains & Cruises in Berlin, Germany.  Lernidee has more than 

20 years of experience in operating private trains and it all started with the Trans Siberian Journey.  The emphasis is on cultural exchange so we will not keep you on board our trains EVERY night - the local hotel experience is a must and gives you a great opportunity to get to know people in the country that you are in.

There are just a few compartments left for this season.  This year we added two departures (a total of twelve) and they are just about sold out!!


For further information please contact Roberto
