Uzbekistan Cultural Tours

Cultural tours introduce you to the different regions and traditions of Uzbekistan, and take you deeper into the history and beauty of this great country. Go beyond the program of a regular group tour and explore the architectural monuments of Uzbekistan’s greatest cities, plus the workshops of master craftsmen and the kitchens of talented chefs.

Each region in Uzbekistan boasts of a unique culture and architectural style, plus different spices in their cuisines and patterns on their textiles and pottery. For example, Khiva is most famous for its ancient technologies for creating hand-dyed natural carpets from silk and wool, while Bukhara has been home to master metalworkers for centuries. In Samarkand, visit the monumental architecture of Timur’s capital, or explore the patterns used for suzani, traditional hand embroideries. Head to the Fergana Valley to learn how ikat patterns are woven in silk, or visit Kashkadarya to learn about the basma and iroqi weaving styles that adorned the clothes of ancient rulers. For those who love ceramics, a visit to Rishtan, the home of famous blue ceramics, is a must.

Take your time in museums, historical sights, folklore fairs, and festivals. Bring back not only colorful souvenirs and bright photos, but also new impressions and memories of the unique culture and history of this land.
