Specialists in Tailor-Made Tours

Do you want to embark on a tailor-made adventure along the Silk Road? Then you’ve come to the right place. Bespoke experiences are at the heart of what we do, and there’s nothing we love more than planning a one-off trip.

Bespoke Experiences Along the Silk Road

With years of experience in organising expeditions, TV shoots and luxury tours, we know what it takes to organise something genuinely unique. In fact, several of our Silk Road experiences have been – or will be – world firsts. And that’s what your trip should be – personal to you rather than off-the-peg.

Perhaps you have an interest in wildlife conservation, in luxury train travel, in white water rafting, or in living with nomads.

Maybe you want to organise a tailor-made adventure focusing on Uzbek ceramics, or fancy helicoptering over a glacier and riding camels across the Kyzylkum Desert.

Or you might like us to organise a bespoke expedition including private jets, luxury yurt camps and your own chef? No problem.

Fine-tuned to your Style of Adventure

Whether it’s a luxury trip to Uzbekistan, a sixty-day Silk Road Odyssey or a tailor-made adventure in Kazakhstan’s Wild West, we love organising tailor-made journeys. We’ll organise every tiny detail, including:

  • Pairing you with the right guide
  • Booking you into the best restaurants
  • Organising your transport – whether it be by air, land or sea
  • Arranging exclusive, bespoke experiences that reflect your interests and how you love to travel. This could be anything from meeting dancers from the Kyrgyz National Ballet to learning herbal lore in the High Pamirs.

Whether you want to meet Uzbekistan’s last woodblock carver, ride into the mountains with a Kyrgyz eagle hunter or meet the architect who designed Tashkent’s famous Metro system, we’ll do our utmost to deliver it.

What does it cost?

All of our tailor-made trips are designed from scratch, then whittled to perfection over a series of meetings and conversations with you.

We start with a chat to find out what makes you tick and how you like to travel. From there, we work with you to create the perfect trip.

Weeks of work often go into a single tailor-made trip – from choosing which guides to pair you with, to researching which Kyrgyz opera singer will give you the best behind-the-scenes tour of the national theatre.

With our background in journalism and documentary making, we pride ourselves on our creativity and depth of research. There’s nothing we love more than poring over maps and winkling out new stories, places and people.

We only accept a limited number of guests each year, and all of our tailor-made trips are designed by our directors, Antonia and Marley.

All this precision and expertise does come at a price. Think of it as the difference between nipping in to Zara to buy a new outfit and having a new suit tailored on Jermyn Street. Of course our costs are dependent on where you’re going, how many people you’re travelling with and how many private yurt camps you want, but our bespoke trips start from £400 per person, per day. Once you’ve travelled with us, you’ll know that this is excellent value.

Ready to explore the Silk Road your way?

If you want to travel the Silk Road in your own style, then please feel free to get in touch. All you need is a general idea of how you like to travel, and what you want to experience. From there, we’ll do the work to turn a blank canvas into a detailed, original itinerary. We approach every tailor-made tour as if we’re writing a new story, putting it together to exactly reflect your interests, and we take great pride in doing so.

Here are a smattering of ideas to help whet your whistle. Of course, they are by no means the extent of what we offer – we also build one-off, bespoke experiences from scratch.
