Foreign Travel Advice

This overland tour combines the green valleys, mountain peaks and old churches and watchtowers of Georgia with the great natural beauty and inhospital terrain of the Karakum Desert in Turkmenistan. We set off from the picturesque and cosmopolitan Georgian capital Tbilisi through the vineyards and wineries of Telavi, before crossing into Azerbaijan to visit the mud volcanoes of Gobustan and the city of Baku. We then take the ferry across the Caspian Sea to enter Turkmenistan, continuing our journey on for a few days in the peculiar and over-the-top modern capital of Ashgabat.

Day 1 - Tbilisi (1st January 1970)

Border Information: if joining in Tbilisi, you will most likely enter Georgia at Tbilisi International Airport (IATA code: TBS).

There will be a pre-departure meeting at 6:00pm - please meet at the joining hotel reception at this time. Please do not be alarmed if there is no note from you leader on arrival, as this is often a travelling day for the crew and they will not arrive until about 4:00pm. Your leader will need to carefully check your visas at this initial meeting.

Please note that many of the options listed below will only be possible for those with extra time in Tbilisi before the start of your trip with us - please contact the Sales team if you would like to book pre-tour accommodation with us to have extra time exploring Tbilisi.

In Tbilisi we will stay in a comfortable hotel with good facilities.

*Important note - any tobacco products are practically illegal in Turkmenistan, so please do not bring them or use them in Turkmenistan. Also please do not bring any medicines containing tramadol, codeine, temazepam, morphine or opiates to Central Asia. These are illegal in all circumstances in most of Central Asia and you will risk arrest. If in doubt about a particular medicine, please do not bring it.
