Who are Eurasia Trains & Tours?
Eurasia Trains & Tours, a German-based company, is one of the world's leading operators of private charter train tours focusing on the concept of "cruises on rails." The founder and owner, Mr. Helmut Mochel, already in the late 1970s, started to realize the idea of trans-continental "cruises on rails."
The concept of our tours: "cruises on rails"
The concept of all our tours is to facilitate our guests experiencing trans-continental routes onboard comfortable private trains, specially organized and composed according to the needs of tourists. The legendary Trans-Siberian and Trans-Mongolian Railways offer travelers the world's most extraordinary travel experiences on a journey connecting two continents (Europe and Asia) and featuring two countries (Russia, Mongolia) with their diversity of cultures.
What are the advantages of traveling by private trains instead of traveling on regular trains?
- All-inclusive concept: train & hotel accommodation, full board, excursions, onboard entertainment, experienced tour escorts
- Choice of categories of sleeping car accommodation from Economy to Deluxe cabins with private bathrooms (shower and toilet) in the cabin.
- Accommodation in the most modern sleeping cars of Russia. Choice of double or single accommodation.

What makes the journey with our rail cruises by private train exceptionally comfortable and unique?
