"Tashkent To Isfahan" is a small group tour which will include accommodation, transport, meals and others. Please check the package includes section for more details.

A fabled journey through Uzbekistan & Turkmenistan to Iran. Samarkand was regarded as one of the most important markets on the legendary Silk Route between China and Europe. On our overland journey from Uzbekistan to Iran we trace the western section of the Silk Road, a bustling corridor through which caravans laden with goods would pass enroute to the ancient city of Constantinople. Travelling to the renowned Central Asian cities of Tashkent, Samarkand, Bukhara and Merv we gain a rich sense of the intricate history, before crossing the awesome expanses of both the Karakum desert and the high mountain passes that link Central Asia and Persia. Our trip features a dramatic mountainous drive across the Kopet Dag Mountains to Iran, a land of dramatic contrasts. Ranging from snow clad mountains, deserts, oasis towns and ancient cities that reveal a deep and rich history. We diverge from the traditional Silk Road itinerary with exciting excursions to Isfahan, Shiraz and Persepolis, the summer capital of the vast Persian Empire, before concluding this epic journey in the vibrant city of Tehran.

“The trip was AMAZING. It was the first time I travelled with WE and I found the trip highly professional, right through from the guides (delightful, knowledgeable, flexible, and great leaders) to the bus drivers (humorous, maintaining clean bus, helpful and safe drivers). Tour guides were well informed, considerate of the individuals and group needs and always finding best options for meals, demonstrating the local food. The accommodation was superb. I'm glad I travelled outside Ramadan but did experience 3 days of Ramadan in Tehran - food more expensive, restaurants touristy and harder to find. Sights stunning, but be prepared to fill the day. Unexpected friendly locals, ready to engage and find out more about their country. I have been travelling for 38 years and this trip was one of the best....loved Iran and Uzbekistan. I would highly recommend WE and now dreaming where to travel next!!”

“This tour was a wonderful dip into ancient history, with knowledgeable guides telling stories of peoples and cultures past and present. These countries desperately need us to bring our dollars and interest to theirs, to embrace their delicious foods (maybe not camel for me!) and magnificent mosaics. So much to learn in such a short time!”
