Although Uzbekistan may not seem like the natural choice for a winter holiday, winter is the ideal time to discover the country’s evocative Silk Road cities in peace and tranquillity. On this Uzbekistan Winter Group Tour, you’ll follow in the footsteps of caravans as you journey to the fabled trading hub of Samarkand; visit mosques and madrassahs in the 2,000-year-old city of Bukhara; and experience the blend of old and new in Uzbekistan’s capital, Tashkent. Photograph the famous monuments, including two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, without the crowds and, if you’re very lucky, with a dusting of snow. Depending on your departure date, you may also be able to celebrate New Year’s Eve in local style.
