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

Road journeys. And bus that had plenty of space to sit alone.

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

Read the pre departure information. Donít take a bag you canít handle easily up flights of stairs without help. Donít chose this trip if you are going to demand to sit at the front because you get car sick. If you get car sick this is not the trip for you. If you are the sort of person who gets irritated by lots of check points and and bag searching this is not for you. I loved the trip but then I had a 14 kilo back pack, two hands free and a sense of humour.

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

It benefited local homestay and yurt owners. And local drivers and guides.

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

I chose it as high on journeys and landscape but low on city tours which I dislike. It delivered.

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

Traveling the mountains of Tajikistan and the homestay there.

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

Enjoy. Do not bring so many things: it is not so cold, you do not need a slipping bag nor the sheet, nor gloves. All the stays, even yurts, are warm. 8Bring comfortable shoes for walking and a pair of slippers.

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

Yes.

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

Very good.
