The right track, the right train: A guide to selling the Trans-Mongolian Railway

Ready to get on the right track… with the right train? Give your clients an experience unlike any other by recommending a Trans-Mongolian Railway journey!

Does a multi-week journey by rail covering as many countries as time-zones sound like it would be up your client’s alley? You’re in luck! A Sundowners Overland tour could be the right fit.

It’s a concept that anyone whose ever hired a van (or bought a questionably botched VW kombi) is familiar with but when it comes to overlanding – a cross-country journey by wheel or by rail – there isn’t another on the planet as long or unique as the Trans-Mongolian and Trans-Siberian railways.

And there isn’t a company out there offering tours along the line as developed, high quality and feature packed as Sundowners Overland.

Delivered by destination and railway journey specialists Sundowners Overland, a journey across the Trans-Mongolian Railway – the largest train journey in the world – takes your clients from Russia to Mongolia and China, covering West to East across Siberia and all the sights, sounds and colours in between.

Sundowners Overland has been sharing these coveted rail-journeys with Australians since the ’60s, with the company growing to include representation in Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and Russia.

But despite its expansion, the company’s mission remains the same: crafting and delivering remarkable journeys across Asia authentically, with trips designed around exciting events, including the celebrated Naadam Festival in Mongolia and the White Nights Festival of Russia.

Regardless of the tour your clients take, by the end of a journey on the Trans-Mongolia Railway, they will have crossed several countries and time zones, covered more than 9,000 kilometres and experienced more cultures and customs than you can throw a stick at.

Choose from more than 20 carefully crafted, small group journeys or give your clients the luxury of designing their own overland experience from the catalogue of a Siberian specialist that’s been unfurling the secrets of Central Asia for more than 50 years.
