  • GrantFeringa's review about another Dragoman Overland tour
    5.0 - Excellent

    Great trip. Could not fault it. Wonderful memories, would like to do another Dragoman when I have the annual leave (getting enough paid holidays is a problem when working full time).

  • JanisHumberstone's review about another Dragoman Overland tour
    4.5 - Excellent

    It was a fun experience, with a nice bunch of people. We joined late in the trip but were made welcome from the start and felt part of the group from the outset.

  • VictoriaStephenson's review about another Dragoman Overland tour
    5.0 - Excellent

    A great trip, full of adventures, laughter, culture and history. Could not recommend it highly enough but be prepared for wild camping and basic facilities - which I think is the best bit!
