Uzbekistan’s rich history, dazzling architecture, vibrant bazaars and friendly people are enough to enthuse any visitor to the country, which has for so long been overlooked by the tourism industry. The country is well worth a visit in its own right, with Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva, three historically significant cities adorned with ornate buildings, the highlight of a visit, but you may also opt to explore Uzbekistan as part of the incredible Silk Route. Our specialists know the region extremely well and have devised a number of itinerary ideas to help with planning your route, each of which can be tailored to your interests to create a bespoke tour.
