    I enjoyed my holiday very much, my only complaint was the journey to the airport when we arrived we had to run to catch the plane ( not good for a sixty two year old ! ) which left ten minutes later. It was a very tense journey a not a good end to a very... Read more

    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

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • 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.

    • 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'.

    • Is it possible to use credit cards?

      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.

    • Simonetta7th July 2019
      TourRadar made online booking a pleasure. Responses to questions I had were within less than 24 hours, team was personal but professional. Once I set up my profile I could easily access my booking and see all previous correspondence. TourRadar is better than a local travel agency
