It was different from all the travel I had been before. All the sightseeings were amazingly beautiful. I saw the different site of Islamic countries. People in Uzbekistan were friendly and most of them were willing to help even though we spoke different languages. The arrangement of the tour was great and I had a chance to take domestic flight and express train trip in this tour so that I could know more about the country. All the guides: Vadim, Susana, Mansur and Mavlyuda were good and informative. They all spoke fluent English.

Our tour was efficiently organised. The guide was knowledgable and well informed. We could not get hotels of our choice despite a fairly long advance planning. Extra charges for Hotel Registan was not justified considering the overall pricing of the tour. Fees for visits to monuments was covered in the package but we had to pay for taking pictures. Amount was not much but we should have been informed that this fee is extra. When we landed at Bukhara airport we had to wait a long time for our mini bus to arrive. All in all we had a very enjoyable trip- thanks to Advantour.
