PLEASE NOTE THAT I CANNOT BUY
TICKETS ORIGINATING OUTSIDE OF RUSSIA (BEIJING, ULAN-BATOR ETC.). TICKETS
ORIGINATING IN RUSSIA MAY OR MAY NOT BE PROCURED - ASK ABOUT YOUR PLANNED
DATE NO MORE THAN 60 DAYS BEFORE YOUR DEPARTURE. EX MOSCOW TICKETS ARE NO
Most of my clients buy 2nd class (4 persons per compartment) tickets. 1st

the continent for $50-80.
