THE CHRISTMAS TRANS-SIBERIAN - 26 days from Australia

 Christmas and New Year Trans-Siberian -  Our exclusive tour is a sensational experience as we travel through a winter wonderland, conjuring up images of Dr Zhivago. Among the highlights are a Christmas Day sleigh-ride through a snowy Siberian forest and an unforgettable New Year’s Eve celebration in Moscow’s Red Square. At this time of year there are far fewer tourists which means we often get famous sights such as the Great Wall of China virtually to ourselves. Russia in winter is simply glorious and a white Christmas is guaranteed! Contact Guidepost Tours for reservations. (TD)
