Experience Uzbekistan with our spectacular tour that explores the highlights of the ancient Silk Road, from past to present day. Most important to the fabled trading route were the famed cities of Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva. We visit and stay at all three on our carefully crafted trip to Uzbekistan.
Featuring expert guided tours by local guides ready to uncover the hidden gems of Uzbekistan, the multi-centre escorted holiday really is not to be missed. Your adventure begins in Tashkent, before a flight to Urgench and a visit to the vast landscapes of the Khorezm desert. After experiencing the inspired UNESCO World Heritage city of Khiva, we drive to spiritual Bukhara, where we stay for three nights to really get under the skin of this wondrous place. And finally there is Samarkand, stopping at the traditional village of Gijduvan on the way to see the artisan potters at work. Samarkand itself is truly magical, with its majestic Registan Square, studded with intricate floral-patterned tiles.
With renewed interest in both the ancient and modern Silk Road, why not join us on a journey to this endlessly fascinating country, with the bonus of no visa requirements and a less than seven hour flight to Tashkent, the colourful capital city of Uzbekistan?
