TRIP REVIEWS (11)

Carrey Nelson

Hi Ruslan, this was a tour I will never forget. I have an Uzbek friend, and she always tells me about her hometown, and since we take yearly vacations with my family we decided to go to Uzbekistan this year. And we are more than happy we did so. The historic sites like the Registan in Samarkand and the old town of Khiva were mesmerizing. The cuisine was a delightful surprise, and the locals were warm and welcoming.          
Our car was good, the driver was very careful and caring, needless to speak about our guide Aziza, she was the best.

Jasmin Cox

Hello Hasmik, my journey through Uzbekistan was truly unforgettable. The ancient Silk Road cities like Khiva and Bukhara were like stepping back in time. The culture, art, and hospitality of the Uzbek people were remarkable. The hotels were comfortable and clean, certainly not for luxury stay seekers. The trip was a perfect blend of history and natural beauty. I can't recommend it enough!
