Post by thrille »


I'm Janelle and I'm from Sydney, Australia. My partner (Zach) and I are looking for people to join a five day tour in Turkmenistan in May 2020. The tour is with guide Guvanch Annakuliyev who we found through Caravanistan.

The tour is five days from Thursday, 14 May to Monday, 18 May, although we will be arriving in Ashgabat on Wednesday, 13 May. The tour starts in Ashgabat and ends at the Turkmenistan - Uzbekistan / Alat border. Here's the itinerary:

Day One

• Overnight at the hotel.

• Morning drive from Mary to Farap border (280 km / 4 hours)/ Turkmenistan – Uzbekistan / Alat border. Border formalities. The end of tour.

Cost is 980 USD per person for just the two of us. Not sure how much the price changes with more people but can find out if anyone is interested.

The cost includes visa support (letter of invitation, state registration and travel pass), entrance fees to all sites mentioned, all meals.

Not included is the visa fee, migration tax and tips.

Let me know if you're interested!

Hello! Hopefully you're still looking for people to share this tour with. I'm Sarah from the US and I'll be heading to Uzbekistan around May 2020. I'd love to join you guys if it's within my budget. Could you please find out what the cost would be for an extra person?
