DAY 1

Tashkent

A trip through Tashkent. First discovery of the capital of Uzbekistan begins with the visit to the Khast Imam complex, of particular interest is the 16 th century Sheikh Tillya Mosque, which retains what is believed to be the oldest existing Koran, the Barak Khan founded In the sixteenth century, by a descendant of Tamerlán, the mausoleum Kafal Shashi and also visits the Kukeldash madrasa. Kukeldash Madrasah is a medieval madrasa in Tashkent, located closed to Chorsu Bazaar and Chorsu Metro station. It was built around 1570 by the Shaybanid Dynasty of rulers. The madrasah is built of yellow brick, and has a traditional square shape with a big portal and an inner yard. The walls around the inner yard contain cells inhabited by the students. The portal is 20 metres (66 ft) high and contains two towers at its sides. In 1830-1831 the first floor of the madrasah was demolished, and the bricks were used to build the nearby Beklarbegi Madrasah. It was later restored.[1] The madrasah was damaged by the earthquake in 1868 and subsequently reconstructed in 1902-1903. It was reconstructed again in the 1950s and became one of only several religious buildings which survived the 1966 Tashkent earthquake. The madrasah was converted into a caravanserai in the 18th century, then it served as a fortress. In the 20th century it was a museum, first of atheism, and later of folk music. In the 1990s, the building was made a madrasah again. Overnight at hotel. Read more

It is difficult to imagine ancient Khiva without this monument of oriental architecture. The Minaret of Kalta-Minor has become the real symbol of the city. It amazes with its size and unique design. Foundation of the minaret is 15 meters, diameter at the foundation is 14,5 meters and the height is 29 meters. But this massive tower has only third part of the project height. In 1855 the Khiva ruler Muhammad Amin Khan was killed and the construction of the magnificent minaret was stopped, though it was supposed to be of 70 meters (according to other records – of 110 meters). According to the architect project wide foundation was to increase durability and the supposed top was to be narrower to decrease the load. But the fate decreed otherwise – and the tower remained unfinished. And now it resembles huge glazed barrel and is called as Kalta-Minor that means “short minaret”. , Muhammad Amin-khan Madrasah (XIX c.). Overnight at hotel. Read more

El viaje fue muy agradable, sorprendente por los paisajes y arquitectura del país. La comodidad del vehículo y el hecho de ir sólo nosotros en el mismo es un elemento a destacar. Estuvimos en contacto en todo momento con el agente local Utkir, que nos ayudó con los problemillas que surgieron en nuestros días libres. Read more

We scheduled a weeklong tour through Uzbekistan in November 2016 - Tashkent, Khiva, Bukhara, Samarkand, and Tashkent. Initially, we provided the places we wanted to go and our time frame. They made everything - from the beginning to the end - so easy and still so special. Uzbekistan-holidays came through with a well-planned tour that included everything we asked for, and also offered some thoughtful suggestions for us to consider. Throughout the planning process we had a number of special requests, and Uzbekistan-holidays met all the requests graciously. All of the staff was wonderful to work with. And the guides that they used in each of the cities were amazing - they knew the history well and they were fun to be with. For me, the choice seems obvious.... Read more

Fantastic week tour of Uzbekistan. We booked a week tour off season (November 2016). Actually we went there very late so there were barely any tourist and the temperature dropped dramatically in the middle of the trip to reach -12 in Khiva, but we still loved it!! The company was really professional and it had everything very well planned. We visited several cities and the guides provided were exceptional, specially the lady in Samarkand. She transmitted so much passion and love for the city! The drivers provided by the company were also very good and professional. I tend to get very easily sick when travelling on a road, specially if is full of curves but that was not the case when travelling there. They were very good and helpful and they accommodate to our needs. They took us to several shops to buy things such as Samarkand wine.... My advice in Samarkand if you are there during the weekend is book in advanced a restaurant, specially if you want to go to one of the good ones, as we tried to enter in three of them and they were all fully booked. The country was really safe (at least the cities we visited) and as I mentioned I walked a lot on my own at different times of the day. I had a couple of vegetarian plovs and salads but careful with the salads as they can give you stomach problems if you are not used to the water there. Read more
