In most cases, traditional mass transport routes typically traverse areas outside major thoroughfares and on the outskirts of population hubs, where at the time of their development it was thought they would be the least intrusive and disruptive. This wove train routes through breath-taking natural landscapes. Now, modern-day transportation methods tend to favour speed over sightseeing.
Overland Journeys has spent ten years providing dynamic international tours including small group tours starting in Russia and ending in London, England. Our signature Silk Road Tour is now accepting bookings and is set to depart in May 2019.
