Take a tour back in time on China’s historical Silk Road

The Silk Road extends for some 4,000 miles and has been in use for over 2,000 years. Your bespoke Silk Road tour could take you on a trip through the heartlands of China, following the route taken by the fabric whose ultimate destination was the fine clothing of European royalty.

Now you can take your place in this picturesque, historical landscape on your very own Silk Road trip. With no less than 33 major historical sites along the route, you can follow in the footsteps of merchants, pilgrims, missionaries, soldiers and nomads travelling between China, India, Persia, the Mediterranean and beyond.

As you’ll learn on your tailor-made tour down the Silk Road, this route carried much more than its name may suggest. International traders carried many other luxury goods, such as perfumes, spices, medicines, jewels and glassware. Yet, what the Silk Road carried above all else was ideas and cultures. This was the route where East met West, and the rest is our history.

A luxury Silk Road tour is the perfect way to explore a sensational sample of the sights, the tastes and culture of the distant past.
