HIGHLIGHTS Download trip notes
  • Nukus takes you off the tourist grid and back to Uzbekistan in its Sovietera times. No wonder Savitskiy Art Gallery, the second most valuable collection of Russian avantgarde art, chose its home here.
  • Spend time in World Heritagelisted Bukhara – a sixthcentury BC city that's teeming with history and home to the formidable Ark of Bukhara.
  • Get a bit active and learn the stories and people of Uzbekistan while sharing homecooked meals with local families on a visit to the Amankutan Valley.
  • Steeped in Silk Road history and immortalised in many a tale, the World Heritagelisted town of Khiva is full of colourful monuments and history spanning centuries.
Start and end in Tashkent, the Classic Uzbekistan trip is a guided explorer trip that takes 12 days. You will travel through Samarkand, Bukhara and Nukus in Uzbekistan. Classic Uzbekistan is a small group trip which includes accommodation in hotels, transport, meals and others.

Uzbekistan is bursting with ancient history, interwoven cultures, vibrant marketplaces and diverse landscapes, and on this 12-day classic adventure, you’ll experience the best of the Uzbek. Hitting the capital Tashkent at the beginning and end, discover the unique collection of Russia avant garde art in the most unusual choice of location – Nukus, walk the walls of the ancient inner city of Khiva, explore the sacred and holy sites in Heritage-listed Bukhara and be dwarfed by the medressas in the iconic Registan Square of Samarkand. Learn about a history that may be often overlooked, but is definitely not dull – Uzbekistan’s mix of Islamic influence, Silk Road splendour and Soviet-era rule provides insight into an era long gone, but definitely not forgotten.

“I went on this trip with a friend and we really enjoyed it! Tasmania has a lot to offer - rainforests as well as mountains and beaches. We were able to see a lot in just 6 days and our guide was awesome, thanks for this great experience!”
