“I can afford a more expensive tour but I love the way Dragoman tours operate.
They take care of the travelling and accommodations and leave one to do what they like at a destination.
You are not herded along in a line like sheep, and if you wander off it's your responsibility to get back.”

“Goreme accommodation was great. The long drive there was hard BUT worth it for the extra time in Goreme. Loved the Zil Kalesi and the camp location that night on the river. Georgia winery day (I enjoyed it too much). Tblisi and Baku and the ferry across the Caspian. I liked the uncertainty of it.”

For this Mountains, Kingdoms & Deserts of Asia tour getting the required visa(s) is the responsibility for each individual traveller, as visa requirements vary depending on your nationality. We recommend to check with your local embassies representing the countries that you are travelling to, as part of this itinerary.

Local Payment The local payment is a group fund, paid separately from the trip price on the first day of the tour. It covers everything that the group does together on the ground. This is primarily hotel accommodation and campsite fees, meals whilst camping (but not while eating in restaurants), and included activities and puts money directly back to the local community. The local payment, or kitty system, is unique to overlanding tours and provides maximum flexibility and best value on the road - you can see exactly what is being paid for, you get everything at cost price, it keeps costs competitive by leveraging group expenses and saves on administrative costs. The fund is run by the tour guide, and any excess left over at the end is returned equally to the group. Local prices are estimated in USD when we print the brochure then reviewed monthly as local costs and exchange rates vary throughout the year. It's therefore important once you book your trip to check the website regularly and just before departure for any changes to the amount.
