The Golden Eagle has been carefully designed with emphasis on your comfort, relaxation and enjoyment. In addition to our private en-suite sleeping cabins, we offer a beautifully appointed Bar Lounge Car and Restaurant Cars.
The perfect location to relax and unwind as you watch the ever changing scenery pass by. Reminisce the day’s adventures with fellow passengers over afternoon tea or perhaps challenge your friends to a game of cards before dinner.
Throughout your journey the Bar Lounge Car and Restaurant Cars will host a variety of entertaining and enriching activities such as Russian language lessons and engaging lectures on local history and culture from expert guest speakers.
It is also here that our Tour Manager will organise a programme of activities for the journey ahead. Daily itineraries detailing train arrival and departure timings and information on the following day’s excursions and activities will be provided, plus useful weather forecast and time zone information.
As evening falls, enjoy the sounds of the resident pianist playing on the baby grand piano in the Bar Lounge Car. Each night the bar stays open until the last person leaves.
Each morning, enjoy a bountiful breakfast buffet in our beautifully appointed restaurant car, offering a fresh selection of fruit, cereals, cold plates and freshly squeezed orange juice. For something more substantial enjoy a breakfast cooked to order by our onboard Chef, all accompanied by steaming hot tea and coffee.
At lunch and dinner you will be welcomed by our resident Guest Relations Manager to enjoy a delightful culinary experience inspired by the countries we venture through. Whether it is some of Russia’s gastronomic specialities, such as black sturgeon and red pacific salmon caviar or our quality international cuisine, all meals are skilfully prepared by our Executive Chef and his onboard team, using the very best ingredients and locally sourced wherever possible. Vegetarian and other dietary options are also available.
Attentive service and an excellent choice of wines, personally selected by our Company Founder, Tim Littler, accompany all our meals at lunch and dinner, in addition to bottled mineral water, draught beer and soft drinks.
Expect a relaxed and convivial atmosphere at meal times with the freedom to dine wherever, and with whomever, you please in a single sitting. An informal dress code is applied throughout the journey.
