Overview

We take great joy in creating thematically booming trips like this. The "Silk Road" ties together whole passels of civilizations, epochs, and sceneries - no other China tours could possibly offer. And it tells a story, the grand tale of one of humankind's great arteries of trade and culture.

Our journey follows the footsteps of the caravans on the ancient Silk Route and uncovers a world about which most westerners know only the legend.
