    Great experience in two very different countries. The nature in Kyrgyzstan combined with the culture and history of Silk Road in Uzbekistan is a great combo.

    Very disappointed with our guide [Marat] being drunk on the 2nd & 3rd day of the kyrgyzstan leg. He was replaced by Artem who was fantastic. He bent over backwards to make the rest of our time in kyrgyzstan enjoyable.
