  • 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).

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

    We had an fantastic trip with Dragoman on the Silk Road in Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan. Jan and Tanya were excellent tour guides and drivers. The group was diverse and enjoyable to be with. Travelling in the truck was unique. I highly recommend the tour.

    5.0 - Excellent

    This was my second trip with Dragoman and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The organisation is great and the staff make the trip super special. It's a great way to see countries from a slightly different perspective as well as visiting the main sights. I've been to... Read more

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 Kashgar and Xi'an (from Xi'an to Kashgar) 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.
