We really liked our visit to the Yodgorlik silk factory, very interesting. And the other things, like the pottery workshop, wood carving, and especially the house of Bakhrom-aka (wool carpets) was very exceptional to see! He was very kind and his family gave us the warmest welcome.
Great service, quick response on e-mail. Excellent driver (very friendly and helpful).
