Review about The Legendary Silk Road from Ashgabat to Almaty "Orient Silk" Road Express by Rodney
A good trip all round, but some comments.
Credit cards not accepted on the train.
Russian rolling stock very out of date.
For our class, we were allowed two free drinks per meal, food was good
The tour guides were good and helpful
It took over an hour to get visas in Turkmanistan. Not that you could do anything about it, just info. One could walk the streets there.alone
Thanks for all your assistance, Rodney
