    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.

    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... Show more

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the kitty payment?

    Dragoman's Kitty for Silk Route between Ashgabat and Tashkent (from Ashgabat to Tashkent) 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.
