Melon & Grapes - Grand Afghan Tour

Dates: 13th - 27th September 2014
£2450
Each Autumn we run a trip to Afghanistan and we think it is the perfect time to visit. Summer can be blisteringly hot and winter icy cold. Spring has its charms, but for us it has to be Autumn because of the fruit. How a land that appears to be made entirely of bare rock can produce melons as large as beach balls and grapes bursting with juice is one of life’s great mysteries. This trip shows the best of Afghanistan at the best time with as much fresh fruit thrown in as you can eat.

Silk Road Cities 2014 - Uzbekistan

Dates : 18th - 30th October 2014

Uzbekistan epitomises the silk road. Empty desert highways and isolated oasis cities that stand as a reminder of the days of Timur, when half of Asia was ruled from Central Asia. On this trip, we visit three of the best preserved cities on the silk road as well as getting a feeling for what life is like in post-soviet Central Asia.
