Uzbekistan Explored

Small Group Holiday



days from


The ancient Silk Road cities of Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva conjure up images of unimaginably wealthy oases linked by caravans, of imperial politics and incredible architecture. Beautiful turquoise domes and towering minarets grace the skyline while down below everyday life goes on in markets and cafes from years gone by. This 11-day tour of Uzbekistan takes you to the cities of Bukhara, Samarkand and Khiva as well as to some more remote areas like the desert castles on the arid plains of Khorezm, a yurt camp near Aidarkul Lake and the ancient town of Nurata.
