This itinerary is flexible. As in recent years the motorbikes are forbidden to ride in city area, so some times we will stay on the suburbs or some other towns close by.In this itinerary we leave 2 days at the beginning and 2 days at the end of the tour for Customs and traffic police formalities.

In 2006 we can get all necessary documents as driving license, car/motorbike license before clients arrival at the border. But from 2007 rules are changed that we finish all application formalities before clients arrival, do customs and traffic police on the spot.
