Tour Details

The region’s cradle of culture for more than two millennia, Uzbekistan is the proud home to a spellbinding arsenal of architecture and ancient cities, all deeply infused with the bloody, fascinating history of the Silk Road. In terms of sights alone, Uzbekistan is Central Asia’s biggest draw and most impressive showstopper.

Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva never fail to impress visitors with their fabulous mosques, medressas and mausoleums, while its more eccentric attractions, such as the fast disappearing Aral Sea, the fortresses of desperately remote Karakalpakstan, its boom town capital Tashkent and the ecotourism opportunities of the Nuratau Mountains, mean that even the most diverse tastes can be catered for.

Despite being a harshly governed police state, Uzbekistan remains an extremely friendly country where hospitality remains an essential element of daily life and you’ll be made to feel genuinely welcome by the people you meet on your visit there.

What to Expect

From the opulent Registan in Samarkand to the twisting alleys of the museum town of Khiva, Uzbekistan is a land of onion domes, grand archways, and towering minarets. Needless to say, it’s an architecture buff’s wet dream.

But the country offers more than just drool-worthy architecture. From hopping bazaars in Tashkent and the Ferghana Valley (home to the founder of the Mughal Empire) to the desolate destruction of the Aral Sea, it’s a country with many faces. Luckily, for any visitor, the faces are almost all smiling, as Uzbeks are some of the friendliest people in Central Asia.

  • Mosques and Mausoleums of Samarkand
  • Mix of modern and soviet-era architecture in Tashkent
  • The lush green valleys of Fergana
  • Essence of Islamic architecture all around the streets
