We recently participated in the New York Times Travel Show - the biggest travel industry exhibit in Northern America! We were the only company offering unique, extraordinary tours to Uzbekistan, the other Central Asia Stans and the Caucasus countries and the interest in these regions and response from visitors was overwhelming! So fabulous! We want to thank all the world travelers, US travel agents, and travel journalists for stopping by our booth, for signing up for Central Asia and Caucasus travel, and our 2020-2021 small group and private tours.
During the travel show as award-winning Conde Nast and Wendy Perrin associates, we provided their travel experts as well as NYT Travel Show visitors with presentations about our Silk Road Treasure tours to Central Asia and Caucasus. We had on-stage performances by renown Central Asia and Caucasus dance troupes and held interviews with journalists about the latest Central Asia travel trends, tours, hotels and new visa laws at Meet-the-Expert sessions.

We are extending our special New York Times Travel Show discounts for all travelers with interest in traveling to Uzbekistan, Georgia and Kazakhstan. The offer will be continued until February 10th, 2020.
Organizing travel and events in Central Asia and Caucasus can be challenging. Our personal connections mean our clients have access to active archaeological sites, and behind-the-scenes, private after-hours tours and events with top museum curators and historians. Groups of 10 or more have the option to travel with a personal chef, especially helpful for travelers with dietary restrictions. With our connections, we can organize niche interest visits with specialists ranging from fashion designers, government representatives, women's collectives, to large corporations or businesses.
Our visits with local families are extremely popular, and we take advantage of every opportunity to enrich our clients’ experiences. Birthdays, anniversaries, and special events are celebrated in style, with special meals and entertainment. We plan dinners at small restaurants owned by local residents who enjoy meeting our guests.
With our longstanding relationships in Bukhara, Samarkand, and Khodjand our clients are invited to neighborhood celebrations like weddings and cradle ceremonies by local mahallas, traditional organizations at the heart of every community.
Our creative itineraries often combine outdoor experiences with unique hands-on, cultural interaction. Throughout Central Asia, there are opportunities for guests to learn how to make a yurt and stay overnight with a group of nomadic families, to visit rural villages and cook pilaf, bake bread, and share a meal with a local family. They can shop the markets and bazaars meeting shop owners and artisans. During festivals, fashion shows, and cultural events we secure priority seating and a warm welcome from local governments and concert organizers.
Our expert guides look forward taking you to our beloved homeland Uzbekistan, and to the Central Asia Stans and Caucasus countries in 2020.
