Author: Alessandro P   |   Rating: 520 June 2024
Here are my opinions about the tour:
* ITINERARY: well planned, maybe some more activity in Khiva, we had a lot of free time, maybe visit the fortress in the desert...
* HOTELS: great accommodations in Tashkent and Bukhara, in Khiva and Samarkand ordinary accommodations.
*GUIDE: great job by Abror
* TRANSPORTATION: always in time and safe, great idea using flight between Khiva and Bukhara, it could an option also between Bukhara and Samarkand.

In terms of logistics and planning the trip was wonderful. The guides and hotel selection are also good.

The tour in Samarkand felt a bit rushed - I would have liked to have more time to explore the sites before rushing to another place. The hotel in Samarkand was also a bit far from the key sites, compared to more central locations like the hotels in Khiva and Bukhara.

I would love to plan another trip with Advantour in future. All the best!
