Our upcoming itineraries

Blue Mosque Mazar i Sharif

Melons & Grapes - Grand Afghan Tour

Dates: 2nd to 16th October 2017
Cost: US$4450
Fully Booked
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 Autumn is the best, and all 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 with as much fresh fruit thrown in as you can eat.
