Thrilling Post Tour
19-25 August, 2017

Astana • Tashkent • Samarkand • Bukhara • Tashkent

A journey along the Silk Road reveals arching blue-tiled mosques, tall minarets constructed of baked mud brick woven into fabulous patterns, beautiful green mountains, desert vistas and a warm and heartfelt reception along the way. Admire the fantastic carpets and crafts as you meet local people in the bazaar, experience traditional Central Asian music and dance, and
learn more about a region whose growing importance makes it even more significant now than when it was at the center of the great trade routes.
