Why Book this tour
This tour takes in three of the states of the former USSR and showcases the history, culture and stunning mountain landscapes of the region. Located along part of the Silk Road in the Caucasus region, Armenia and Georgia straddle Europe and Asia but feel very eastern European, a testament to their Soviet past, while Azerbaijan has a more classic Central Asian feel. Our extension to Azerbaijan is the perfect excuse to sample this little visited country.
