It was very busy and tiring. We tried to see a lot of things in a short time. Needed more time to rest and wander. We really enjoyed the train trips.

Superb - your organisation is impeccable. Fruit in the rooms at the hotels is a lovely gesture. Even the signs your drivers hold up are highly visible in yellow.

We have been on many tours - yours is probably the best so far. Uzbekistan is amazing, the people are lovely (not so much in Samarkand). All facilities are very clean. Gulnara and Saida were very helpful and professional guides.

We had a very well-organized tour, where everything worked, was on time - professional and top-quality. Bakhrom was a very patient, attentive and knowledgeable guide who took very good care of us. He gave us very good information about Uzbekistan and all the wonderful sights. We had very good transport everywhere - clean, spacious vehicles and very nice safe drivers.

Outstanding experience. Uzbekistan is a marvelous country with so much to experience. Advantour showed it off to its best advantage. They made us feel safe, secure and very welcome. Their guides are wonderful - friendly and very knowledgeable. Thank you!



We came in January. Although cold, it was beautiful weather and we had the magic of the sights to ourselves. The people of Uzbekistan are lovely, welcoming and very friendly. A fantastic experience!
