Meet Anya

Previous Experience: After guiding tours in one of my favourite cities Saint Petersburg for several years, in 2016 I joined the Sundowners Overland team and now I lead journeys along the Trans Siberian and Trans Mongolian Railways, as well as the Silk Road and Caucasus regions.

Favourite thing about Tour Leading: I love to explore new places together with my fellow travellers and share my knowledge as well as experience with them.  Our style of travel gives me a wonderful opportunity to gain an insight into local life in many new countries and allows me to share this with you.

Favourite place to visit and why: Iran and Uzbekistan as the locals are the most welcoming people on earth, and Japan where aesthetics sits in every bowl of rice.

On the road tips: Be positive and open-minded. A very new world is lying in front of you full of unique tastes, colours and shapes. So keep smiling!

Hobbies, achievements and dreams: I'm curious about life - this is my main interest as well as photography, where I can look through the lens to learn more.
