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
