Jenny's review for another Sundowners Overland tour
“Just back from the Five Golden Stans trip. Great group of travellers and Anya was a fantastic guide. The trip was exciting, challenging, invigorating, educational and culturally different. Would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn about a part of the world which is unknown to Westerners. Be prepared to experience wonderful culture, great food and the friendliest and most hospitable people. Previously, The Persian Caravan was my favorite journey, but the Five Golden Stans may just beat it! Well done Sundowners!”

Janice's review for another Sundowners Overland tour
“I had heard about this trip and was looking for a trip that was a little different to others I have done. The trip was above and beyond any expectations I had. Our tour leader and local guides were amazing and gave us a experience of a life time. I would recommend this trip with Sundowners. A trip to remember.”
