The Ancient Silk Road Escorted Tour

This is much more than a Silk Road tour showcasing the cultural, historical and natural wonders of the ancient Chinese trade route. You’ll be accompanied by an expert Silk Road guide who’ll help you both see and understand the history. You’ll have special access to the rich gallery of Buddhist art at the Mogao Caves, and you’ll stand atop the outer reaches China’s Great Wall. Take a camel safari in the Mingshashan sand dunes and see Turfan's ingenious irrigation channels. We can’t help you haggle at Kashgar’s Sunday market but your Silk Road guide will be there for every other aspect of your journey.
