Stride Review

Transsiberian began when its founder, Hans Lernidee, organized a Russian language course on the Trans-Siberian Railway in 1986, eventually leading him to found his tour company. 

What Makes Them Stand Out? 

Transsiberian aims to combine travel with getting to know a destination, through fascinating experiences and cultural and historical insights. Its founder and tour operators travel often in search of inspiring and fresh ideas for new tours. 

Who Travels With Them? 

Transsiberian tours are tailor-made for small groups, private groups, and individual travellers. 

Where Do They Operate? 

Transsiberian operates tours in several locations. Popular tours include the Trans-Siberian railroad, travel across Africa with Rovos Rail, riding the Orient-Express, and a railway journey through Argentina, Bolivia, and Peru.

Why Travel With Them? 

Transsiberian presents classic destinations from a new perspective into less-familiar terrain. They add new tours each season and experienced product developers travel the world to research and develop innovative journeys. Local guides on each tour are familiar with the countryside to offer guests fascinating and authentic insights into everyday life.
