“The Central Asia Journey is a wonderful adventure for those looking for something different. Four of my fellow travellers were fit over 80 year olds and coped magnificently, myself at 74 and not so fit was surprised I managed to keep up as well as I did. The accommodation was excellent and the food terrific. We were always served alcohol when we needed it, which was often because we are Aussie and it was hotter than I expected. Trip comes highly recommended from a fairly experienced traveler and is great value for money.”
