Me and my wife are extremely pleased with our stay in Uzbekistan. The hotels are perfect: always located in the city center, always nice little hotels like in Noukous or Bukhara with a warm welcome and people are very kind and professional. The guides are always on time and speak a perfect French. They know the history of their country very well and teach us thousands of things about the complex history of your country. They are passionate. Say “Thanks” to them. They are very kind, friendly, polite, courteous, endearing. It's so sad to leave them, in a few days they've become our friends. We also want to thank drivers. They drive calmly, the cars are always very clean and well on time.
We contacted two tour companies, one based in US and Advantour. After we sent a short list of questions to the US woman, she refused to answer us. We went with Advantour which turned out to be a wonderful choice. Very reasonable rates (much cheaper than US company), and Shavkat answered all of our questions promptly, designed a tour taylored to fit us with excellent city guides and wonderful drivers. We were 3 people, went to Khiva, Bukhara, Samarkand, an overnight at a guesthouse in Nurata Mountains with a beautiful hike, and Fergana Valley. Used plane, trains and drivers all arranged by Advantour. There wasn't one slip up. Fantastic trip thanks to Shavkat and all of the guides and drivers.

About: Tailor-made tour
My wife and I recently spent ten wonderful days in beautiful Uzbekistan. Thank you Advantour for your excellent organisation, knowledgeable guidance and reliable service. This time, on the occasion of two weddings, we only saw Tashkent and Samarqand. On our next visit we hope to see more of the country, and we will definitely again enlist the aid of Advantour. Thank you and best wishes from Munich, Germany!
I have just returned from a tour of Uzbekistan. The itinerary was wonderful - especially the inclusion of Khiva, which is often missing from more expensive tours organized in the US. Though there were only four of us - not enough participants to justify an escort. The tour was so well organized that we didn't mind at all. I'd like to see more of the region and will use Advantour again. Thanks!
Sevara and her team were absolutely professional in their organization of our tour. Immediate email responses and follow up were faultless. Ticketing,transfers,guides,drivers seamless. Guides historical knowledge were amazing, drivers always punctual& attentive to even arriving with bottled water. I cannot speak highly enough of this Company and am so glad I found them.
We really thank you for our Tour Guide Mr. Giorgi. He is a fantastic tour guide, and it's a big help for us to have him during our short stay in Tbilisi to be able to explore and understand the history of Georgia. The places which we visited are breathtakingly beautiful. Tbilisi is a place that every tourist must include in their bucket list. We really had a fantastic and memorable Eid Holiday in Tbilisi, even in just two days and a half.
We had a wonderful tour of Uzbekistan for 11 days. We would like to express our gratitude to Advantour for making our trip a memorable one. We are very thankful to the complete crew of Advantour who helped us throughout our trip. Special thanks to Shavkat for overall help and mainly responsible for us to visit Uzbekistan. Thanks to Maria, our guide in Tashkent for showing us around Tashkent. Thanks to Mervin for pick up from airport, dropping us at airport and driving us around Tashkent. Thanks to Norbek our driver for most part of our tour, who drove us from Khiva to Bukhara to Shakhrisabz to Samarkand. We had a wonderful time with Norbek. He helped us in various ways at all times and we are very grateful for his services. We would like to thank Timor - our guide in Khiva. Thanks to Maqsum, our guide in Bukhara. Thanks to jovial and funny 'Standing moon' for showing us around in Shakhrisabz. Thanks to graceful Valentina, our guide in Samarkand to show us around. We must say that, every guide we had are good historians and had deep sense of history and religion. They are keen to tell us about every aspect and we are very impressed by this. We found every one working for Advantour are true professionals and have great commitment towards their work. They are very helping, caring and honest. We always felt that we are well treated and cared for. In all sense, Advantour is mainly responsible for making our trip to Uzbekistan a successful and we are very happy about it. We couldn't have managed on our own. Thank you and keep up the good work - Rahmat.
We had an excellent experience organised by Advantour, with superb driver Akhamat, great guides Maria, Makhsuma, and Saida. Despite many changes of itinerary, participants and other special requests, Advantour responded promptly even over the weekends to accommodate all our needs.
The tour to Uzbekistan was unforgettable!
I´ve travelled a lot during the years, and I have never (NEVER!!! :-D ) experienced such a well organized trip.
Everyone I met was filled with eagerness that I would have a good trip, they were fantastic people, and as far as I can understand you have made a superb choice of collaborators : drivers, guides, hotels with their hotel personnel, and last, but not least, your staff at the travel agency.
Exceptionally well thought out tour was a great adventure, yet with no risk to personal safety. Impressive views of Aral Sea area are absolutely not similar to famous Khiva, Bukhara or Samarkand. I had a lot of fun accompanied by careful driver and caring guide. So sad the sea may disappear completely in the next decade…
If you are planning a trip to beautiful Uzbekistan, we highly recommend that you do this through Advantour agency. We had done our own research and planned our own trip before we realised that we would need to go through a travel agent in order to obtain a visa. Advantour accepted the itinerary that we had devised for ourselves and adapted this, with the most minor of modifications, into a custom tour for 2 people.
They arranged transport by chauffer driven limousine with English speaking drivers, by train and by aeroplane, and they reserved our hotels.
When we arrived in Uzbekistan we were met at our hotel by their representative, Shavkat Khodjaev, who provided us with our transport tickets and all other documentation.
The trip itself went like clockwork. The drivers were invariably spot on time and knew exactly what we wanted to do. Quite simply, the entire trip could not have been better organised.
We thoroughly recommend a visit to Uzbekistan.
We are feeling so rewarding to our Uzbek experience! Great organization of the tour package, which we had in October 2013, including transport with very good drivers, well-run and stylish hotels, detailed information upon arrival and very knowledgeable plus attentive,considerate guide.We hope in the future we can visit Uzbekistan again with more time to soak into your art treasures and enchanting atmosphere, and we wish more people in Taiwan and around the world can come to know the beauty of your country, then we suggest them to take travel service offered by Advantour!
We would be pleased to recommend Advantour to anyone thinking about travelling to Uzbekistan. The quality of service provided by the Travel consultant was very high. On the ground in Uzbekistan, the tour leader was knowledgeable. Spoke English well and responded to all our questions.
Uzbekistan has wonderful architectural sites. The people are ever so friendly and what's more at no time did we feel unsafe - whether we were on the road, in a Sunday market or walking the site of old Khiva by moonlight.
It was great to be a part of interesting excursion to the Aral Sea including a night camping under the moon. The driver was amazing with good sense of humour, patient and with lots of info.
Thank you so much for the brilliant tour!
Our group of seven ranged in age from the mid-thirties to mid-seventies and all got along very well. As a matter of fact, the age range, added to the fact that we hailed from three continents, enhanced our experience. On some of the long drives, there was little choice but to eat at pre-arranged spots because of the scarcity of stops along the road. However, we were given freedom to choose where to dine at our evening’s destination. For the more timid of us, that was a challenge, but having to make oneself understood is part of the fascination of travel and offered more opportunity to interact with Uzbek people.
Our experience with the staff of Advantour was excellent. Our representative went far beyond the call of duty helping us arrange pre and post tour travels and our guide was knowledgeable and helpful. We'd rate our experience an "A."
