    4.5 - Excellent

    This was an excellent tour. The size of the group was just right and the large range of ages a pleasure, much better than when all the travelers are the same age. The local tour guide in Turkmenistan was good, but not too communicative. The local tour guide in Uzbekistan (Jalal) was fantastic and went well beyond what you might expect.The Dragoman driver and tour guide (Paul and Adam) were great and they and the local guides made the whole trip a no-hassle affair. Apart from some unavoidable stomach upsets, the tour was fantastic.

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 Silk Route between Ashgabat and Tashkent (from Tashkent to Ashgabat) 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.

  • Leslie3rd September 2018
    It is too bad there is no 6 or 8 star rating available. 5 isn't really good enough for TourRadar. This enterprise surpasses even the most stringent, high-bar criteria for excellence of customer service. These people are consistently, constantly, on top of your tour itinerary, where you are are in the process, your current status and your situation, they answer the phone on the 2nd or 3rd ring, I'M NOT KIDDING, nd when they pick up they already know who you are, what your tour and status is, and they instantly produce precise answers and solutions to your questions or problems in a matter of seconds. I don't know who the competition is for this outfit but my advice to them is, give up. Go find another line of business. You will never catch up with the platinum customer service these people provide.
