Beyond what WE say about ourselves, our descriptions of the routes you will travel, the places and people you’ll see, and beyond the presentation of our ethos or our recommendation of how a particular trip might appeal to you, it is important to hear from those who have already travelled with us – they and their testimonials are your best guide as to whether we are what we say we are.
We encourage all of our guests to provide reviews of their experience on Google. We believe this to be more independent, less open to corrupting influence and therefore more reliable than any other review source. You can read a selection of submitted reviews here.
After every single trip – small group or tailor-made – we also provide our customers with a digital feedback form to complete. Robust feedback helps us to continually improve and is simply vital for companies like ours. Taken from these surveys, here are some testimonials from our previous guests. Huge thanks are due to each and every person who took the time to write about their experience of travelling with Silk Road Adventures.

“This trip to Jordan was a fantastic tour from start to finish. Nothing had been overlooked and the day to day leadership was excellent. The meals in camp were better than most restaurants and the guides knew their stuff about plants, wildlife and geology. The way the trip was planned was excellent with a great mixture of challenge, relaxation and visits”

You don’t expect to have what feels like life changing experiences at our age, but this took us into a part of the world about which we knew very little and made us feel like real travellers, not tourists, cocooned in a little bubble.

Eileen and Dennis, UK
“The quality of Silk Road Adventures’ advice and reassurances really helped give us the confidence to travel”
Eileen and Dennis, UK : Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan 2019
“Having been inspired by the Joanna Lumley’s television programme we knew we would see spectacular buildings and awesome scenery.
The trip added so much more as we met naturally friendly people as interested in our culture as we were in theirs.
If you like mountains and deep blue lakes then you will see them in abundance. If you want history then the buildings and architecture will take your breath away.
Watching a golden eagle fly and herds of wild yaks and horses are things we will never forget.
Because our party was very small moving around in 4×4 vehicles was so much more pleasurable than mini buses or a coach.
Using a specialist company with owners who are true travellers and travel experts made the trip complete. The attention to detail for our trip was superb and we were very fortunate to be in the party. “
Oliver, UK : Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan 2019
