REVIEWS FROM OUR PASSENGERS

My experience with Dragoman was such a unique one. I really enjoyed my first time overlanding and would definitely do it again!!I really enjoyed the flexibility of having options to explore a city/town independently or with a group. My husband and I were still able to make budget decisions based on the number of activities that was offered.

Overall, love the opportunity to travel with a bit of independence and freedom (i.e. camping, cooking own meals, freedom to choose opportunities in each town). Also, loved the input, expertise and professionalism of the tour leaders - they made the whole trip very enjoyable, comfortable and safe.
Adam B
Carmen was a fantastically well-equipped truck with ample storage space and a good level of comfort.

An excellent way to see as many sights as possible within a relatively short time frame.
