Journey Highlights

This fascinating journey to the heart of the Caucasus offers a taste of old world Eastern European charm. Former Soviet Republics, Georgia and Armenia are warm and inviting,each with a rich cultural heritage of music, art, poetry and dance as well as a wealth of Orthodox Christian churches, cathedrals and monasteries. In many places, travellers will experience an unspoiled medieval feel while the major cities are vibrant with a newfound buzz. The landscapes are breathtaking with jagged alpine peaks, isolated rural communities, vineyards and orchards and above all incredibly hospitable people.

Your Guest Host: 
Sujata Raman is Regional Managing Director of Abercrombie & Kent Australia / Asia Pacific, a position she has held for over a decade. Passionate about seeing the world and experiencing its cultures, Sujata has lived on three continents and visited all seven over many years. Having travelled extensively in Europe, Asia and the Middle East, and recently returned from Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan where she hosted a tour along the ancient trade routes of Central Asia, Sujata is now inspired to further explore the intersection of East and West in the enthralling lands of the Caucasus.
