    Iran Adventure
  • "As a solo traveller, I was hesitant to to travel to these countries but decided to give it a try and go with Vodkatrain and the tour exceeded my expectations. We were given free time to do our own thing and explore the beautiful places. Aside from that we were also given options on where we want to dine so I highly recommend this tour and travelling with Vodkatrain was such a memorable experience."
    The Marco Polo (from Beijing to Shiraz)
  • "The best things that happened on my 2009 trip was visiting the most amazing places. I got to experience Iran which was such a welcoming country with hospitable people, India where there was total madness on the streets and Tibet where we got to see Everest and the monasteries. The highlight of the tour were the nights on the bush camps with campfires and beers where toiletries is a prized posession. I cant wait for my 2015 trip and I thoroughly recommend Madventure."
