SEATTLE, WA — Cultural tour operator MIR Corporation is celebrating its 25th year of travel to St. Petersburg, Siberia, the Silk Road and beyond with a 100-page catalog of its popular trips for 2011. The company is offering five departures of its signature small-group tour to Central Asia, Journey through Central Asia: The Five ‘Stans, which sold out last year, and featuring a new 20-day trip along the Silk Road called Once Forbidden Lands of Central Asia and Iran which features stops in Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and Iran.
Other new small group tours include China’s Silk Road & Tibet: Route of Monks & Merchants, an 18-day exploration of the Tibetan Plateau and Western China that includes a ride on the incredible high-altitude train from Lhasa Lanzhou as well as visits to the UNESCO-listed Mogao caves in Dunhuang and the fabulous Kashgar Sunday Market; and Eastern Turkey & Georgia: Legacy of Empire, a 15-day in-depth escorted journey which begins among the folded hills of out-of-the-way Anatolia, rich with the traces of early civilizations, and continues along the balmy Black Sea Coast to the unfamiliar little country of Georgia, where guests are welcomed at tables laden with some of the finest food and wine on earth.
The company continues to feature its sought-after Flexible Essential Private offerings, with compact, well-designed independent itineraries to St. Petersburg, Russia, Siberia, the Silk Road, the Caucasus, the Balkans, Tibet, the Baltics and Central Europe.
