Turkmenistan City Tours

Turkmenistan, far more than a land of desert, camels and mausoleums, is home to 6 million people who live in some of the most fascinating cities and villages of Central Asia, thanks in part to the country’s isolationist policies and the grandiose inclinations of its leaders. Cities of Turkmenistan range from the deserted archaeological sites of Merv and Kunga-Urgench to flashy Ashgabat, from the mountain village of Nokhur that appears frozen in the distant past to the sleepy mid-size town of Mary. As diverse as Turkmenistan cities are, each one is worthy of recognition and exploration.

Turkmenistan City Tours are informative, in-depth day tours to a variety of towns and villages in Turkmenistan that are sure to enrich your traveling experience. These tours are a fun, flexible option for anyone in transit through Turkmenistan and exploring the country independently, and include well-planned itineraries, a private guide to offer detailed explanations of the sites, and pick-up and drop-off from your hotel.
