review 11 May 2017

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

I particularity enjoyed the added insight into every day life the guides were able to give us as they were all local. It was interesting to see the three different countries and travel through the countryside, mostly in minibuses with commentary by the guides.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

We went in April/May and experienced really hot sunny weather, cold evenings -enough for warmish coats, strong cold winds and some rain, so pack for all eventualities. Be prepared for long days with some early starts and to be able to account for all your medicines, jewelry, and exact amount of money in all currencies at border posts. Also practice squatting and getting up again without using your hands as the toilets on the road are pretty grim. Bring tissues and hand gel.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Economically some local people benefited from our purchases and tips, but we had no real impact on environment apart from using minibuses, bottled water and air con!

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

I found the vacation really interesting with well chosen sites, hotels, local guides and itinerary. All the guides spoke good English and went out of their way to give us an outstanding experience. The second half with one night stays seemed a little hectic, so it may be better to add an extra night somewhere, for example in Dushambe as the hotel there was excellent.
