We have just returned from a 9 day tour of Uzbekistan. Firstly, we cannot speak highly enough of Advantours their attention to detail (fruit and water waiting for us every hotel room) very professional and efficient guides drivers and of course our tour organiser Kate. This country and it`s people have a lot to offer advice is to hurry up and go there before it changes too much.

Very well organized + efficient; provides a comprehensive and in depth overview of both major and minor landmarks, bazaars, as well as multiple other fascinating pockets Uzbekistan has to offer.

Excellent tour. Very enjoyable. Good value for money. Professional and friendly staff. Very helpful. Gulnara is an excellent guide, exceptional in her profession. Monuments of the tour were excellent. Vadim is also excellent guide in Tashkent - the cleverest, informative and friendly.

I was very pleased with the whole tour. All arrangements were smooth. All the hotels were nice and I particularly like the K.Komil in Bukhara and Malika Kheivak in Khiva. The guide was excellent. Gulnara was able to deal very well with the needs of the group and balance the programme so everyone benefitted. She is very knowledgeable.

I liked the itinerary - we saw a lot but also had free time+so on. The route seemed efficient. Enjoyed dance/fashion show in Bukhara. But food /dinner there was poor - just salad+dumplings. The other restaurants were generally ok - except Platan, served mainly foreign foods. Also every place served mainly plov/kebabs - I wish we could have tried places specializing in other/specific local dishes (main dishes, not just soup, dumplings or samosas).

As first time tour participants we enjoyed the experience very much. This was due to the wonderful way in which Advantour (specifically Kate and Zohid) worked in such a professional and efficient way., always with a smile. We were so impressed with the attention to our details and found the pace of the tour just right. Being experienced independent travelers, this has opened our eyes to travelling in a different way. Our tour leader Zohid was excellent at everything. Nice person. Knowledgeable. Professional.

My own impression is that your country has a lot to offer, it is beautiful to travel with such good organization, I learned a lot!
As for me, it would have been nice to have 2-3 days of relaxation in between; only city tour is a bit exhausting.
Overall rating of guides is good. Akbar, in Tashkent, gave us an insight of his political opinion and enough information about the sights. Feruza in Samarkand knows a lot, good guide. In Bukhara, Barshorat started the tour with a lot of shopping recommendations and handicrafts. Shahodat in Shakhrisabz carried out a short tour, some information, she started with some local artists (who sell art).
Sergei, the guide in Termez, was excellent. He gave us a lot of information. The best tour.

The tour was very well-organized: excellent information, thoughtful itinerary, guides and drivers are very considerate, especially with my partner who had health difficulties (injured knee and stomach problems).

Very friendly and professional staff. Everything worked as announced in the program; very well-organised. The choice of hotels was amazing (besides maybe of Tashkent) and the quality in general of the tour was very good, especially at that price (about 800 dollars).
The choices of places where we ate were great. A big thank to Kate, Zakhid and our drivers.

Uzbekistan is a must visit destination. People are very kind and helpful and the country has a nice culture and an interesting history. The tour was well-organised. Each place we could see was of pleasure. Hotels were good but need upgrading.
The tour leader Zokhid is very cooperative and well-knowledgeable about the history of each place.

Very well-organized except disappointment with the hotel in Khiva. It was too modern and flashy.

It was awesome.
Jolol is the best guide I have ever had. Superlative.
The driver was excellent.
P.S. one member of our group was very obnoxious. Whatever he was offered, he wanted something different. He verbally attacked every member of the group at least once. He continuously made us all wait for him while his wife shopped. Then he complained that we didn`t keep the schedule. Our guide was infallibly kind and considerate even to this man.

We were travelling independently as two couples (Australian and British). Mayra did a great job of making all the arrangements for us and Lemara of following through. They were both prompt in replying to emails, courteous and helpful.
Local guide Mirzabek in Tashkent was very knowledgeable and spoke fluent English. The tour was interesting and varied, we enjoyed it a lot.

Uzbekistan was so much more than I expected. The sites, that the tour leader Zokhid chose, made the time walking and being in the heat worth every minute.
He is the best tour guide I have ever had in my many travels.

It was exceptional! Everything was handled with a great deal of professionalism. We had a wonderful overview of your country in a short period of time. I loved taking the fast train and seeing the counryside.
The guide Zokhid was knowledgeable, well-spoken, patient, patient, patient.
His articulation and grasp of the nuances of American English was exceptional. He was accommodating and problem-solved to make sure all participants were satisfied.
