What an incredible week! As ever, expertly organised with some surprises thrown in. Thank you to the team for pulling out all the stops so last minute!

Brian - Steppes Travel

The team created an incredible last-minute short break for us last year, helping us to rediscover our own doorstep. From rewilding projects to chef's table dining experiences we couldn't have had a better holiday.

Overall another amazing trip from Steppes Travel. We saw so many different sights and had so many new experiences. Would always highly recommend Steppes.

The early morning balloon trip was undoubtedly the highlight of the trip, but a trip of so many lovely and varied highlights. The wine tasting was such a lovely surprise and what a great region for wines. Thank you for arranging this. We look forward to our next adventure with Steppes!


Guides knowledge excellent and he left no stone unturned! The driver was excellent. Between them, they made our holiday.

Eastern Turkey

We have been on trips all over the world and have chartered yachts many times. This was the best trip and experience we have ever enjoyed. The sights, the yacht, the crew, the food and beverage were top shelf all the time.

Turkey - Cruise

Really helpful over the visa hurdles. Couldn't have negotiated the Russian questions without the excellent guide sheet.


The local guides were excellent, both Anahit and Haik as well as our driver Ariak. So please pass our thanks onto them. They had great suggestions, very friendly, very helpful. We had a great time on this trip.


Excellent, well-rounded tour of both Armenia and Georgia, which enabled you to compare and contrast the two nations and gave a comprehensive overview of the common heritage.


I called on Friday 5th February and was on the plane, everything in place, on Friday 12th. Steppes are unflappable, reassuring, and thought of everything.


One chat with Joe and the trip was on. His personal experience was invaluable.
