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 and national parks; enjoy a bevy of cultural activities; meet local people, learn about the fascinating history of Central Asia, sample delicious cuisine and soak up the fascinating Persian atmosphere.

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).
Don't miss this opportunity to tour the Silk Road with a fascinating, cosmopolitan companion and expert guide who actually lives along the ancient trade route in one of the most exotic cities in the world! WARNING! There are plans to turn this authentic meander through Asia into a super-highway – once that happens this unique experience will be spoiled forever!
