fantastic trip, seeing the most spectacular scenery, off the beaten track!

I travelled with Dragoman on a short section of the Silk Route between Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan. It was absolutely incredible, the guides were fantastic and the places we visited were genuinely breathtaking

Adventure, excitement, wonder and great company

This was our third trip with Drago. If you want something off the beaten track in areas unreachable by other means, look no further. This Silk Route trip will certainly fulfill these criteria and more. As always we were a little anxious about travelling with a group but again had no reason to be, everyone rubbed along, working together as a team and having loads of fun. Usually there is a wide age range - we are in our late 60’s, our youngest ...

This was our third trip with Drago. If you want something off the beaten track in areas unreachable by other means, look no further. This Silk Route trip will certainly fulfill these criteria and more. As always we were a little anxious about travelling with a group but again had no reason to be, everyone rubbed along, working together as a team and having loads of fun. Usually there is a wide age range - we are in our late 60’s, our youngest travel companion was 22. The group leaders were brilliant. Don’t expect them to be tour guides - locals are picked up at various points en route where necessary to give inside knowledge, this works well. The truck is very functional, surprisingly comfortable over bad terrain and carries all you will need for any emergency and a good supply of basic foods. Shopping is done as necessary by the cook group for the day, often an amazing experience in local food markets etc. The kitty system for group purchases is very easy and safe.We have always found Drago prices very reasonsble for this type of travel. We would thoroughly recommend this company from first contact to sad goodbyes.

What great service! The Back office staff are sooo helpful right from the word go. All the trucks are well maintained with trained leaders who can fix most things en route if necessary. Everything runs like clockwork.
