WOW! What an Exotic Adventure!
Experience one of the world’s most exciting and mysterious adventures along the legendary Great Silk Road! This will be the fourth time Global Gypsies has offered this magical journey to our clients & we're becoming quite the experts about one of our favourite destinations!
On this escorted, catered & accommodated tour-through-time, you'll travel over 5000 kms in China, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan following the ancient trade route which transported silk, spices, livestock, produce, culture, customs, religion and language from west to east and back again for hundreds of years. You’ll enjoy delicious traditional food & be transported in coaches, trains, mini-buses, even the occasional camel and rickshaw!
You'll stay in quality 4-5 star hotels (twin/share basis) and a nomadic yurt as you travel in the footsteps of Genghis Khan, Marco Polo and Alexander the Great! You'll visit mosques, markets, museums, minarets, madrassahs, mausoleums, national parks and ancient painted caves; enjoy a bevy of cultural activities; meet local people and learn about the fascinating history of Central Asia, sample delicious cuisine and soak up the fascinating Persian atmosphere.
Airport transfers, internal flights, ground transport, most meals, entries to attractions, a national escort, local English-speaking guides, Pre-Departure Workshop for Perth-based clients and Pre-Departure Kit are included in the package. Minimum numbers are required for the tour to proceed and group size will be strictly limited.
This is one of the most authentic Silk Road experiences you could ever have! And although Jan & Jeremy won't be there in person, we'll be there in spirit from beginning to end! We'll answer any questions you may have about the tour, give you insight from our previous similar adventures, look after the administration & payments, assist with your visas, hold a Pre-Departure Workshop for Perth-based clients & give you a comprehensive Pre Departure Kit (if you can't attend the workshop we'll post you a kit then phone you to go through it).
