One of Central Asia’s most fascinating cities is the subject of this tour: Khujand. Founded over 2,500 years ago, Khujand saw the armies of Alexander the Great pass through (Alexander’s wife Roxana was from this region), the arrival of Islam in the 7th century, the destruction wrought by the Mongols in the 13th century, and the great flowering of the Khujand in the Middle Ages, with science, culture and business growing with the Great Silk Road. Take a day to explore this great city with the best day tour from Tashkent to see the sights: the central Fortress, Panjshanbe Bazaar, and plenty of museums and mosques. A day in Tajikistan is great to try something new, visit a different country, and deepen your knowledge and experiences in the region.

Incredibly smooth and professional service. Excellent communication during booking and before tour. Tour itself as excellent and informative, the guide Husen was extremely knowledgeable and lovely company. Both drivers were friendly and welcoming. Would thoroughly recommend as an introduction to Tajikistan.
