What they say about us

My Christmas letter tells people that my visit to Tajikistan was the high spot of my year - largely thanks to the Great Game Travel Company.
K Ward, UK, Dec 2003

Read an article featuring our company published in CNN Traveller magazine in Autumn 2003.

When we asked our clients what they enjoyed most about our tours they said:

'... the personal service, the care of the guide and of course the beautiful mountains of Tajikistan'

'... the trekking in the mountains, the enthusiasm of the people who organised and guided us'

'... the first couple of days were hard but once I got into it, I enjoyed the scenery and the quietness. You know, coming from London and being away from everything, completely!'

Why Great Game?

In the nineteenth century the great empires of British India and Imperial Russia vied for pre-eminence along the mountainous border region which separated their spheres of influence. This 'Great Game' was played out over the passes and in the valleys of Central Asia and was captured dramatically in Rudyard Kipling's classic novel 'Kim'.

The Great Game Travel Company provides the opportunity for adventurous travellers of the 21st Century to explore the same mountains and extend the boundaries of their own experience.
