Central Asia Tour Experts at the New York Times Travel Show


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.
