Adam

Serious company, the program of visiting 4 cities was thought out in advance and organized to the smallest detail. A company representative was in touch around the clock and controlled our movement across Uzbekistan. Special thanks to our direct organizer Tatev. I will recommend Araratour for organizing tours in Uzbekistan to my friends and colleagues.

We would like to express our gratitude to Tatev for the proposed 2 tour options for our family of 5 people. We chose option 1 of the program - more intense and active in movement. This tour covered more cities. The program was painted in detail and with beautiful photos. We were able to touch the history of Uzbekistan not only with our eyes, but also were able to touch beautiful historical places with our hands. During the program, we had a guide, Shukhrat, with fascinating stories for both us adults and children. Manager Tatev organized everything clearly: meetings and transfers, transfers by minivan from city to city. The guides for the excursion punctually picked us up from the hotel and brought us back. Everything went according to the agreed program and at the same time we rested and did not worry about anything. Special thanks to Tatev for the selection of excellent hotels for our requirements for accommodation with children.

If you are going to go to Uzbekistan and are looking for a suitable travel agency, then you can safely contact Araratour! We went to Nauryz in Uzbekistan, everything was perfectly organized and even with the emergence of force majeure, it still fit into the schedule. A very interesting and rich program in Tashkent, Samarkand, Nurata and Bukhara. Throughout the tour there was decent transport, good hotels, experienced guides. It is easy to contact the managers of the company by mail or whatsapp, questions are answered promptly. Special thanks to manager Satine for accompanying him throughout the entire tour! Highly recommend! The company's services are worth their money
