Tour Description
Riding the Eastern Express train is almost every child's dream. The train ride takes 24 hours. In fact, you are not going to get anywhere. The real experience is to be on the road and enjoy the ride! The route of the Eastern Express is: ─░stanbul> Ankara> Kirikkale> Kayseri> Sivas> Erzincan> Erzurum> Kars.
Special Considerations
Alcoholic beverages are not sold in train. Each compartment is cleaned carefully before the expedition. In the sleeping car, there are toilets at the beginning and end of the wagon. The toilets are cleaned before the expedition. Soap and toilet paper are also included in the washbasins in both the toilets and sleepers but may run out by the end of the journey.

No WiFi is available but there is a strong cell signal throughout most of the ride. There is no suitcase storage area outside the sleeper. I have good news for those who can't leave their cat and dog: pets are allowed.

Outfit Advice on the Eastern Express: Dress warmly, especially during the winter season: -10 at night, -40 degrees at night. That's why a very good coat, gloves, underwear, boots, pants should be packed for the ride. The train stops at small stations 2-3 minutes. In big cities, it stops for 6-7 minutes, so you can claim to have set foot in 4-5 cities.

Wagons: Choose the Sleepers wagon for the full experience.

Covered Bunks: There are 4-seat seats in a compartment and the seats can turn into beds. They give you clean sheets and you make your bed yourself. I only have one suggestion here: girls and boys must stay in separate compartments. Therefore, 4 seats must be purchased.

Beds: There are bunk beds for 2 people in each compartment. There is also a mini fridge, an electric socket, a table and a sink in the compartment. I traveled with Eastern Express and had a very comfortable journey.

Meals: 4 people per table. The prices are just fine.
