Its graduation season again and we are excited to offer our incredible trips to this year's amazing graduates, their friends and families. For several years we've had representatives from universities across the US take the opportunity to discover the world with explorations of Central Asia and the Caucasus. Whether its Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan or Turkmenistan, these five nations open vistas to centuries of history and culture unparalleled elsewhere. Georgia and the Caucasus offer adventures through incredible landscapes and traditions. Let us find you your dream destination.
Our award-winning team has created iconic Central Asia and Caucasus tour itineraries that explore the cultures, history and archaeological sites of Central Asia and the Caucasus. We consult with grads and families to include parents' suggestions about specific interests, style, budget and making the most of their experiences. Our team is native to the regions and we can offer unique opportunities to share and discover including visiting, cooking or even trekking with local families.
Our experienced Uzbekistan guides Ms. Mashura, Ms. Dilya and Mr. Aziz regularly take our travelers to local homes to cook pilaf and bread together, get to know a family and enjoy the warmth and hospitality the country is famous for. They also organize special trips to the spectacular Chymghan mountains outside of Tashkent, or organize a cycling or hiking trip. Take classes in wood carving at a master craftsman's workshop, stop for a chat with the people in a local village or go on a camel safari or a camp-yurt stay in the Kyzylkum desert. These are the memories of a lifetime!
Ms. Dilya is not just an experienced Uzbekistan tour guide but also an educator. Creating cultural bridges is what she does best, with school and university visits and meaningful exchanges between visitors and local students, enriching us all through the experiences.
Ms. Sona of Armenia is one of our top guides for the Caucasus region. An extremely knowledgeable adventurer, she includes not only popular sites on the itineraries but enjoys taking visitors to special places like ancient caves and local archaeological jewels. She is known for her humor and creating the best tours to museums.
