    Dear Julie Thank you very much for your feedback of the tour . Actually the flight supposed to be from Urgench to Tashkent but due to flight cancellation we had to change the flight from Nukus to Tashkent that’s why it was little bit tense and short time for the flight. We will take this note into consideration and will improve this point. We are very happy you enjoyed the trip and thanks a lot . Odil

Questions & Answers

    WIFI is usually available in all hotels however sometimes there can be an additional charge for this, you also have the option of using the internet at a local cafe.
  • What is the voltage so I can charge my devices?

    Voltage throughout the region is 220-250V. You will find in most of the hotels there are European-style sockets with 2 round pins. You may wish to take an adaptor if yours is different.
  • Are you able to drink the tap water?

    It is recommended to always drink bottled water rather than tap water, bottled water will be readily available for you.
  • What is the local language?

    Generally through Central Asia, Russian is the 'second language' and people in the service and tourism sectors often speak English and a range of other European languages. Official languages are: Uzbekistan = Uzbek, Kazakhstan = Kazakh, Kyrgyzstan = Kyrgyz , Turkmenistan = Turkmen. These all belong to the Turkish language group.

    Merchants will generally prefer you to pay in cash however in any high standard hotels you will be able to pay via Mastercard or Visa without any issues.
  • Are we able to change money and what is the local currency?

    Only four currencies are convertible in Central Asia which are; US dollar, Euro, UK pounds and Japanese yen. There are exchange offices located at airports on arrival, hotels and local banks to change any money you wish. Uzbekistan's currency is 'soum', Kazakhstan 'tenge', Kyrgyzstan 'sum', Tajikistan 'somoni' and Turkmenistan 'manat'.
  • What is the weather like in central Asia?

    You will find that Uzbekistan has a strictly continental climate: summer is hot and winter is cold. The best time to travel in that area is spring, summer or autumn; if you like dry cold with a snowy winter then it is best to visit in winter as it can be very beautiful also at that time.
