    We thoroughly enjoyed this trip, it covered many places of interest and had enough free time to explore places independently. The length of the trip is about right. Uzbekistan is a great place to visit and I'd recommend this trip.

    Some of the advice in the trip notes was a touch misleading - eg the yurts are heated but it sounded from the notes you wouldn't think so. I wouldn't call the trip 'full-on'. There was quite a lot of free time and only 1 early start. That's not a... Show more

    We were expecting a fascinating country to visit but we were unprepared for just how friendly, welcoming and delightful the Uzbek people were in all the places we visited.

    Great introduction to a part of the world that has for many years been overshadowed by its Soviet history. Some stunning sights - Registan Square in Samarkand is right up there with the great monuments of the world.
