This tour offers a glimpse into the exotic history of the ancient Silk Road. This tour will include stops in three amazing cities, starting in Istanbul, then Baku ,finishing up in Tbilisi.
Istanbul is a regular feature whenever the most amazing cities on earth are discussed. As the largest city in Europe and the meeting place between Europe and Asia, Istanbul has an amazing wealth of cultural and historic sights to see. The food is unbelievable too!
Nex up is Baku. While most Canadians have limited familiarity with Azerbaijan, in a previous life I visited on a regular basis and fell in love with the city, the people and the food. Baku is a city built on oil money, and offers a unique combination of modern architecture and ancient history. It is spectacular, surprising, and definitely worthy of a visit.
Our last stop will be Tbilisi, capital of Georgia. For those wanting to visit fascinating places before the tourist hordes arrive, this is your chance. Tbilisi offers a glimpse into a culture unfamiliar to most Canadians.
So, if you want to explore this part of the Silk Road, maybe you should join us! Unfortunately our research trip in April 2020 had to be postponed until 2021, but we expect tour details to be finalized at least a year before departure. Let us know if you’re interested, and we’ll send them to you.
