Highly satisfied. Great organization and hotels, transportation and guides. We would use Advantour again and recommend you to our friends. The guidance provided on Uzbekistan before arrival was very good in helping us to prepare for the trip.

It gave me everything I wanted and I extremely happy. I have no complaints, but would have preferred to have a better hotel wi-fi and location in Samarkand.

Zokhid, a guide was superb, very interesting to hear about life in Tashkent. Susanna was highly passionate, knowledgeable and flexible. Mahsuma presented a very good historical context and gave us very clear information about Bukahara. She knows a lot.
