Central Asia is one of the most undiscovered regions in the world for most travellers, but that's also one of its biggest appeals. In this 28 day tour, traverse the 'Four Stans' - Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan - experience the stark beauty, intriguing histories and unique cultures of each, and make memories you'll never forget. There are long transfers on the tour as you cross vast landscapes between cities and towns, but the accompanying scenery is nothing short of incredible. You will find huge lakes, jagged mountain peaks and welcoming villagers along the way.

We will tailor this trip to you. Change anything - from excursions to accommodation to places visited.
