MIR’s Destination Expertise: How We Do ItWe work closely with local affiliates in Central Asia to carry out our expert-designed itineraries. MIR was the first American company to open an accredited travel office in Uzbekistan, at the heart of the Silk Route. There’s no other American tour outfitter with more first-hand experience, stronger on-the-ground contacts, or more affection for the region.

If you’re looking for a travel company with proven expertise, reliability, and an impeccable reputation, as well as one with far-ranging access, full service and support to offer, then you’ve come to the right place.

Check out our map of legendary destinations and let us know where you want to go. But remember, space is limited on fall 2015 departures and time is running out.  See our remaining fall Silk Route tour inventory below.
