UZBEKISTAN UNCOVERED

Uzbekistan was a total visual feast. Each city we visited was just as amazing as the one before. And the people were really friendly. It was a relatively easy place to be. I would recommend it for a holiday.

UZBEKISTAN UNCOVERED

A very well structured and organized tour through a country still seemingly struggling to modernize and improve the standard of living for it's citizens. Although the people are not overtly religious, Uzbekistan has some of the most beautiful mosques and madrassas I've seen throughout my travels through the muslim world. The country's infrastructure needs improvement and it's currency (Som) desperately needs notes in much larger denominations for ease of USD/Euro/GBP exchange. The country is immaculately clean and I felt safe at all times. Cuisines other than Uzbek and Russian are difficult to locate outside the larger cities, so this is not really a tour for the discerning pallette. The Uzbek people are lovely and eager to make friends with foreigners. Handicrafts (Embroidery,wood carvings,ceramics, etc.)of very high quality abound for haggling, (Sorry Dr. R. ur haggling skills needed UN intervention!!!)

UZBEKISTAN UNCOVERED

The trip ensured we saw all the main sights with a knowledgeable guide and also had plenty of time to take photos.  I felt comfortable and safe throughout the trip and our guide was very helpful.

UZBEKISTAN UNCOVERED

A well constructed tour, culminating with the visit to Registan Square in Samarkand.  The hotels were adequate and the local food passable.  Each of the towns Khiva, Bokhara and Samarkand have there own individual attractions and were well worth visiting, particularly when one reads into the turbulant history of the region.  An excellent and eye-opening tour.

UZBEKISTAN UNCOVERED

A very good trip, with the right balance of sights, free time and experiencing the culture.  The monuments were impressive and it was interesting to see how Soviet rule still cast a shadow 20 years after independence.

Great trip, my only regret being that I wished I'd taken it a little earlier in the year when it wouldn't have been quite so hot, but wouldn't have missed it for the world!

UZBEKISTAN UNCOVERED

Some amazing sights punctuated with some fairly long bus journeys.  Hotels better than I expected, although food was at times a bit of a challenge.
