The true value of travel comes from the people you meet along the way. Immerse yourself in exotic cultures and endless adventure through authentic encounters with local people.
From a pioneering expedition came a pioneering business. Our extensive network of travel specialists has been carefully crafting journeys across Asia since 1964.
Our experience has taught us that no two travellers are the same. That’s why we’ve developed a range of Travelstyles to help you plan the experience you want.
Retrace old caravan routes, discover ancient pagan temples lost in time, see monasteries carved into solid rock, and marvel at a collection of mysterious stones 3,000 years older than Stonehenge. You’ll find them all in the stunning high Caucasus Mountains.
This incredible journey will take you through the five “Stans” of Central Asia, across mountains and steppes, treading in the footsteps of those who travelled the ancient Silk Road with their caravans winding trails through the deserts, exchanging their wares and ideas, which has led to the extraordinary melting pot of cultures that exists in the region today.
Designed especially for travellers who seek high adventure among the peaks and mountain passes of the Tien Shan Mountains, this journey traverses some of the least travelled routes of the Silk Road. Your adventurous spirit will be rewarded with breathtaking scenery in unspoilt wilderness.

A wonderful tour with excellent service from the operators. We had a great tour leader and really good local guides. Don't think about it anymore. Go. You'll not regret it!

During April 2018, my wife and I travelled with Sundowners. Our 'Dream Holiday' far exceeded our expectations due to the detailed and meticulous work of Sundowners.

Our journey across Russia was fabulous, thanks to Sundowners organisation and their terrific staff. Everything worked like clockwork - transfers, hotel choices, local ambassadors, their knowledge and friendliness was greatly appreciated. We would certainly recommend this as one of the greatest train journeys we have experienced. It was amazing crossing the country by train, the scenery beautiful - there's nothing more wonderful and relaxing than watching it slide by with a vodka in your hand!
