The whole trip was outstanding. The travel company were well organized. The guide was knowledgeable and didn’t overwhelm you will too much information. Would stay overnight if I went again. Ibrohim is extremely helpful. He even organized a last minute trip for me to the mountains the next day.I loved this trip and would highly recommend it.
Exellent city tour
Exellent service very efficient great guide Would happily recommend. Got to see all the best bits of tashkent
Samarkand day trip and Tashkent tour
Exellent from start to finish, booked a last minute trip all very well organised and excellent guides. Highly recommended.
Eine one-day-Tour vonTaschkent aus gibt keinen Sinn. Zeit zu knapp !Die vielen Sehenswürdigkeiten brauchen Zeit. Samarkand ist auch bei Navht interessant.
Great last minute booking
Was a great tour. Despite booking very last minute the operator organized it so that I could go on the day before. If you want hassel free last minute tour, do contact them and find out. They managed to get the train tickets even at last minute when I couldnt find them anywhere.
Girls Day! Private Tour with Best Guide Ever <3
I had the most wonderful day in Samarkand. It was a little intimidating to go by myself, but I had transportation/escort from my hotel to the train station, and vice versa. My escort was charming, chivalrous, and super adorable. As a result of being solo, I enjoyed a private tour of the city with the guide all to myself. 🙂 She is intelligent, hilarious, and a total boss! After touring the city she took me to a quiet and *delicious* lunch, which I enjoyed immensely. It was the perfect day trip and I would highly recommend it to anyone already visiting Tashkent -- Samarkand is a must-see!
I had a good time during all trips it was very well organized, I had direction every day , so it was easy to travel
Very interesting, full day trip to the Fergana Valley
Very interesting tour and the company was very accommodating to our last minute request for a tour. Prepare for a long day, 3.5 hours in the car starting at 6am then several hours of interesting tours of the history of Kokand, visits to local master craftsmen in ceramics and silk works. Time for lunch, and then visiting a silk factory. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Prepare for a full day of activity : leave Tashkent at 6am and you won’t get back until almost 9PM. But it’s an area of Uzbekistan not often visited by tourists and you will definitely get your money’s worth.
Great Immersion into Toshkent
No better way to explore and learn about an unfamiliar place than with a passionate and knowledgeable guide; which our guide Ali was. He was very flexible about organizing the tour to cover what we wanted to see. Learned a lot and became very comfortable in the city after this tour.
A day trip well worth your time.
If you are in Toshkent, make the oppotyunity for this worthwhile day trip to Samarkand. Very interesting to learn about and see the influence from the Persian Empire, the Great Silk Road, and the rule of Amir Timur. Tour included a wonderful stop at a carpet factory. The train there and back is modern, fast, and comfortable.
