I read about a tour group that covers all 5 Stans. The group travels using local services (i.e. the local bus). At each destination the group has full freedom to move around independently. When it is time to go to the next destination the group meets in a central location and travels together. A guide assists with logistics and is available for recommendations. You get the feel of independent travel but get grouped together for travel.
Is anyone aware of the name or the tour group or aware of something similar?
We want to travel to all five Stans and are trying to figure the best way to go about our trip. We want to avoid the typical packaged tour.
