If your clients are ready for a rail journey that combines quality with quantity, look no further than a Sundowners Overland tour of the Silk Road.
On any one of Sundowner Overland’s tours across Central Asia, your clients will travel through the ages, threading an ancient tapestry of trails across the Silk Road– an ancient connection of trails used by Eurasian traders throughout the ages.
What’s more your clients will have the chance to visit more than 10 different countries across the continent, including Iran, Oman, China, Tajikstan, Kazakhstan, Turkey, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, and more!
Are your clients ready to spend a month on the road exploring Central Asia? Direct them to one of Sundowners Overland’s most popular tours: the Silk Road Railway journey.
The first few days of the tour take tourists through to see some of the ancient sites of Mesopotamia, with the tour beginning in Shiraz and moving to Yazd – one of the oldest cities in the world.
Here, your clients will have an amazing two day opportunity to see the Ruins of Persepolis and the Zoroastrian Ateshkadeh Fire Temple.
But what is ‘Zoroastrianism’ you ask? Here’s a fun fact about the religion: With roots as far back as the second millennium BCE, Zoroastrianism derives from ancient Iran and is believed to have been one of the precursors to Christianity; it is also still practiced to this day!
Your clients will then have the opportunity to explore the furthest reaches of the ancient Persian Empire by travelling across the Varzaneh Desert toward Tehran. From here, the journey moves to Turkmenistan and progressively across the North Eastern reaches of the Middle East.
The next stop from Turkmenistan is Uzbekistan, where your clients will visit its capital, Tashkent. Clients taking part on the Grand Asian Caravan will also visit ‘Golden’ Samarkand, Uzbekistan, which was ruled by the Turkic conqueror Tamerlane in 14th century.
From then on, the journey progressively moves further East, exploring a manifold of sites in several countries across Central Asia, ending in Beijing.
