Part of the excitement of the travel business is developing new and fascinating itineraries. As such, we are delighted to present two brand new tours for 2020, both offering truly unforgettable adventures filled with one-of-a-kind experiences.

Republics of the Silk Road - a voyage through the Five Stans, the Southern Republics of the former Soviet Union. Highlights include a visit to Baikonur, best known as the launch location of Sputnik 1, and a tour of Osh in Kyrgyzstan, where our Freedom of Choice touring allows the option to join a traditional bread making class or explore local monuments honouring WWII soldiers and Chernobyl victims.

Republics of the Silk Road

Crimean Express by Steam - a remarkable tour from St Petersburg to the Crimean Peninsula through historical cities and areas of natural beauty. Explore Novgorod, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the oldest and most important historical cities in Russia, before delving into the mysterious Khersones in Russia, reputed to be the most complete ancient Greek settlement in existence and only opened to visitors a few years ago.
