  • Fiona Woods's review about another Dragoman tour
    4.5 - Excellent

    This was one of the best holidays we have ever done . Will our Leader and Anita the driver were amazing. The experience was one big adventure from beginning to end . Can highly recommend Dragoman

  • coraldonaldson's review about another Dragoman tour
    4.0 - Good

    great way to see places that have minimal local transport, with transportation to sights with no hassel

  • VictoriaStephenson's review about another Dragoman 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!

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

  • What is the kitty payment?

    Dragoman's Kitty for Bishkek - Kunming (from Kunming to Bishkek) is a group fund for this tour. The group fund pays for camping, hotels, food while camping, activities the group does as a whole (based on the itinerary mentioned above and in the brochure).

    The Kitty allows the group to be flexible as the hotels and campsites are not pre booked and booked by the crew while travelling which makes the whole itinerary more adabtable than the traditional tours. Sometimes you can stay an extra night at one location due to a special activity happening at the location, based on the groups wishes. All of these costs are paid at cost price and Dragoman makes no money out of it. Therefore, if money is left over in the Kitty after the tour, it will be paid back to the group members.

  • Vicki10th June 2018
    The website is so easy to use, and with a large number of tours to choose from and great 24/7 backup via phone and online chat, I wouldn't book my trips anywhere else. I also love earning credits towards future tours with each booking. Highly recommended.
