Thoughts as we celebrated 25th travel season in 2019


We thank you, our loyal travelers, travel agents and partners for your business! This year was such a great milestone for me and my Central Asia team because we celebrated our 25 years anniversary.

During the last 25 years we have been helping our travelers visit and enjoy the Central Asia countries.

We have worked with travelers from all over the world but the top seven came from the USA, England, Australia, Belgium, Mexico, Argentina, and Israel. Our guests loved us for our unique cultural discovery experiences, luxury hotels, adventure excursions, culinary experiences, and shopping opportunities.  Our most traveled tour itineraries are: The Treasures of Central Asia Stans, Uzbekistan Cultural and Jewish Heritage Tours, Hidden Riches of Caucasus, and the Uzbekistan Family Tour.

Our Recently Returned Travelers


Recently I had the pleasure of meeting some of my special guests during my Central Asia and Caucasus trip.   We had lunch together,  participated in cooking classes, explored archaeological treasures in Uzbekistan, hiked to mountain tops in Kyrgyzstan, and shopped at local bazaars.  We also met with our Young Ambassadors who want to be our future guides.

Organizing travel and events in Central Asia can be challenging without the right contacts and languages. Our personal connections with hotel and museum staff, creative directors, chefs, and local residents mean our clients have access to active archaeological sites, behind-the-scenes, private and after-hours tours, and access to private events with top museum curators and historians at heritage venues. Groups of 10 or more have the option to travel with a personal chef if there are dietary restrictions. We organize visits with contacts from fashion designers to government representatives, with women's collectives and large corporations or niche businesses.

I am very humbled and I appreciate the trust that travelers and travel agent colleagues have placed in me and my company. My team and I will continue working hard providing extraordinary travel experiences to our guests in Central Asia and the Caucasus!
