Tbilisi to Istanbul
Asia is the continent where overlanding all started, and Dragoman has been the leading operator there since our first trucks went through in the 1980s - take advantage of our years of experience and come with us as we include all the must-see attractions as well as heading into the wilds, well away from the usual tourist trail. This wonderful holiday-length overlanding adventure is the first leg of the ancient Silk Road, along which ancient traders would journey between Europe and China. Our journey starts in the magnificent city of Istanbul, once the capital of the Byzantine and Ottoman empires and heaving with awe-inspiring historical sites. We will then overland through Turkey to the magical land of Cappadocia, where we explore the underground cities and Byzantine rock-hewn churches of the GÃ¶reme Valley before heading northeast to the breathtaking ancient monastery of Sumela. Our route then skirts the Black Sea and crosses over into the unique country of Georgia. Here you'll discover the port town of Batumi, the ancient city of Kutaisi and its fantastic Orthodox churches, and the town of Gori, birthplace of the infamous Soviet dictator Josef Stalin. We then head to the charming capital of Georgia, Tbilisi. Join us on this wonderful and unforgettable overland experience on the Silk Road!
