We found Imam and his team on the internet and booked sight unseen. The experience with him and his team has been superb: flexible, fun, dependable, knowledgeable, truly caring and excellently organized Imam and his guides made our trip a memorable one. We will use Imam and his team without a second thought and highly recommend them for your travels! Enjoy the experience!!

Its was an awesome 10day silk road tour. It was as eye opener that China is not only a Buddhist country but has Arabic/Muslim influences. I love the Terracotta Warrior museum, Mogao grottos, Dunhuang camel ride, the Crescent moon lake, the different ruins (Jiaohe, the old cemetery etc), Heavenly lake and the Xinjiang museum. Learning the different cultures of Different ethic groups in China was fascinating too. It’s also interesting to taste the spices of their food and the Kebab. Over all the Kashgar travel agency did their job. We have different tour guides as we moved from one place to another but over all I like Omar, Tudaji as our guide. The Train ride to Turpan was safe as we have our cabin to ourselves. One advice I would like to share, always bring with you extra toilet papers and wipes as hotels in China I believe have shortage with toilet paper. Wipes I are important because at times you go do your #2 in the wilderness just to be on the safe side of it and bring your own hand sanitizer just in case. Public toilets do not have seats but you have to squat onto the ground. So, with travelers who have hip surgery/replacements beware.
Anyway, I love the trip overall and I would recommend Kasghar Guide for anyone who are interested with the Silk Road trip.

Iman of Xinjiang Travel organised the tour for my wife and I via emails, he was always prompt with replies, very responsive to our needs and accommodated late changes with no hassle. We started our Silk Road journey in Dunhuang and ended in Kasghar. Iman met us in Dunhuang and immediately impressed us with his easy manner and excellent communication skills. We appreciated him meeting us again for lunch in Kashgar. We finished the tour satisfied that Iman is a man of integrity and did everything he promised. It was an excellent trip and we are glad to have used Xingjiang tours with its Uyghur flavours. We hope to visit Northern Xinjiang in future.

Regards, Mark!

My experience with Xinjiang Travel was excellent in all respects. An initial email inquiry about organizing a one-day tour from Kashgar along the Karakorum Highway to Karakol Lake was answered promptly in perfect English. Arrangements for the trip were quickly completed via email. When our family of three arrived in Kashgar, I phoned Imam Husan, Xinjiang Travel’s founder and owner, and within five minutes he appeared at our hotel to take photos of our passports for the travel permit we needed. I was surprised and pleased when Imam said that he would himself accompany us. Imam was a delightful and knowledgeable guide, admirably fluent in English. The Karakorum Highway is pretty gnarly in places, but we felt safe in the hands of driver Abdurahim, who drove a new and comfortable minivan. The trip itself was spectacular. I only regret that we couldn’t have spontaneously added an extra day in order to venture further along the Karakorum Highway. Based on our experience, I would highly recommend Xinjiang Travel as a reliable and safe provider of enlightened cultural/eco-tourism.
