Rik and Culture Road arranged a fantastic tour for me in Syria... Everything went off without a hitch; a week of incredible ancient sights, sobering ruins, friendly people, and delicious food. Syria has a degraded reputation in the media but it remains a spectacular and satisfying place to visit, and Culture Road is a great organization to make such a trip happen.

I did South Sudan tour in March 2024. It was one of the best experiences I had. Everything was well planned and went smoothly. I had a great time. The visit to Mundari tribe excited me a lot. Many thanks to my guides Ryan and Mayom. This trip wouldn’t have happened without their support.

Awesome trip to the DRC, Rwanda and Burundi. It was well organised, packing in so many great experiences in a short time. Ryan, the main guide, was superb and a great guy. The local guides were excellent to maximise the experience and minimise the inevitable challenges in a fascinating region. Many thanks for the great memories!

Well organised and well run trip to Burundi, DRC, and Rwanda. Ryan was an excellent, highly personable guide supported by local drivers and guides. Good camaraderie and varied itinerary with an eye to the local culture. Highly enjoyable trip, would recommend to those interested in the (bumpy) road less travelled.

Davide and Culture Road tours was amazing. I could not have asked for a better guide. I ended up getting travelers Diarrhea and Davide provided both medical support with some back up meds and helped me navigate the complexities of toilet use while on the African road. Davide was kind, knowledgeable, and organized. He was pleasant and easy going. I would definitely considering to do a tour with him. Thank you Davide for the memories and good times my friend !

Ada en ik (76 en 78) hebben een reis van drie weken gemaakt door Venezuela. Het reisplan is in goed overleg samengesteld en de begeleiding ter plekke was uitstekend! De lokale organisatie was goed bereikbaar en soepel en adequaat in het aanpassen vd reis ter plekke toen we daarom vroegen. Er was verder dagelijks een zeer vriendelijke en attente begeleiding, ofschoon de kennis van het Engels wel eens te kort schoot. Al met al: Een prachtige reis door een mooi land met een vriendelijke bevolking. Een aanrader!! Anne Holvast

I joined the December Syria and this is definitely the most fun and stereorype-breaking journey I had in my life! The cultureroad guide Xavier (so young but knows Syria and the Middle East so well, and speaks fluent Arabic!) and the local guides from Golden Team are very helpful, kind, and interesting. I really enjoyed the journey with them XDD

Thanks for booking me on yet another great trip! Turkmenistan is a difficult country to get visa to, and booking with Culture Road made going there so easy. I enjoy the diversity of the groups tremendously. Also the variety of the program and the knowlegde of the guides is fantastic. You make the whole world feel like a safe place, no matter what is being said in the media. I will definitely travel with you again!

Recent heb ik gebruik gemaakt van Culture Road i.v.m. een individuele reis naar Afghanistan. Mijn ervaringen met deze reisorganisatie en de locale gidsen zijn alleen maar positief. Erg onder de indruk van de professionele en eerlijke houding van de locale gidsen. Ik heb daardoor nagenoeg alles kunnen doen wat ik als fotograaf wilde. De Afghaanse gastvrijheid voelde als een warm welkom in dit straatarme land met zijn ingewikkelde sociale en politieke problematiek. Hopelijk kunnen door dit soort contacten nieuwe kansen voor de locale bevolking ontstaan.
