Tashkent Tour Reviews

4.6 - Excellent Based on 21 customer reviews
the silk road Reviewed Tour: The Silk Road
5 - Excellent
“a simply amazing tour.”
silk ROAD trip Reviewed Tour: The Silk Road
4 - Very Good
“A varied and inspiring (but arduous) journey through Central Asia, from the magnificent mosques and mausoleums of Uzbekistan, to the bleak but beautiful mountain and steppe landscape of Kyrgyzstan, this trip delivered what it promised.”
Simmering the soul on the silk road Reviewed Tour: The Silk Road
4 - Very Good
“There's never a dull moment in this full-on, activity packed, classic road and rail journey. Squeezing three contrasting countries into just 15 days is something of a challenge and it requires stamina, energy, good humour and an open mind to get the most out of it. With just five in the group, this felt like a private trip and the intensity and space certainly benefitted an excellent itinerary. Uzbekistan has the monuments, China provides the counterpoint and nomadic Kyrgyzstan oozes impossibly beautiful mountain and lakeland vistas. Throw-in the Russian influences and the echoes of Ginghis Khan, Tamerlane, Alexander the Great and Marco Polo and you have an intriguing concoction.”
The Silk Road in September Reviewed Tour: The Silk Road
5 - Excellent
“Overall a fantastic trip but not a relaxing one. Each country is different from the others and it feels like three holidays in one. Early starts and long journeys made for arduous travelling at times and the border crossing into China was a pain, but spectacular scenery and reasonably regular stops made it interesting and nearly every day had highlights to look forward to. The hotels were comfortable and the food was better and more varied that we were led to believe from reading previous reviews. I'd score it 9 out of 10 overall.”
In the footsteps of Tamerlane Reviewed Tour: The Silk Road
4 - Very Good
“This is a full on trip across three countries and at times travelling through mountainous areas on fairly rough roads. As a result this isn't the holiday to take if your looking for relaxation but the pay off is an amazing contrast of stunning ancient buildings, breathtaking scenery and mixing with people who have had limited contact with western europeans. At times we were being photographed as much as the locals! The tour really does take you back through the centuries to the time of Tamerlane and even earlier. The soviet restoration of some sites has been done incredibly well and we felt welcome in all of the mosques and mausoleums we visited”

5 - Excellent
“Great Trip with some administrative blunders”
Beautiful Islamic art with warm, friendly, polite and helpful people. Reviewed Tour: A Week in Uzbekistan
4 - Very Good
“Fantastic experience of viewing outstandingly beautiful Islamic buildings and art; learning about the cultural history of the region, especially Amir Temur; set against the background of a country regaining its own identity after being under the control of Russia, and the Soviet Union. The fun of staying in a yurt, and going for a camel ride. Enjoying (or not) the local delicacies and beverages. The people have great pride in their heritage and keep everywhere clean of litter, together with being friendly, polite and welcoming.”
A fascinating taster of a country rarely visited by tourists. Reviewed Tour: A Week in Uzbekistan
5 - Excellent
“Uzbekistan is a fascinating country full of surprises and although longer trips are available, I felt we packed enough in to a week to get a real taste of what the country is like. Tashkent, Samarkand and Bukhara are all very different, but all equally interesting in their own ways.  The stay at the yurt camp is really fun and offers some much needed down time in what is a very busy week. ”
Uzbekistan Uncovered Reviewed Tour: Uzbekistan Uncovered
4 - Very Good
“This was well planned and organised, and very satisfactory. The variety, with city explorations plus trips to the desert fortresses and into the desert to stay in yurts, was a good idea, but entailed a lot of time spent in the bus driving over indifferent roads. Hard to avoid that, but the journeys used a lot of time. The advance notes were adequate, but incremental changes had been inserted and noted, some of which conflicted with the earlier text, but the whole document had not been adjusted and edited to create a clear narrative (about the details and practicalities, such as liability for a departure airport tax). The local leadership was excellent and might be worth more emphasis - it was a 24/7 service whilst I certainly expected to be relying on my own resources much more. The hotels were generally good (even the Uzbekistan in Tashkent had no hot water on day one, and the loos in Bukhara were somewhat smelly). The airline trip was really uncomfortable in both directions - London to Tashkent direct might only be possible with Uzbekistan Airlines, which is a plus, but the seating and the service - the food - was quite dreadful.”

Tashkent - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

A trip to Tashkent will allow you to experience an eclectic mix of traditional Uzbek culture, 20th Century Soviet style and the ever-growing atmosphere of modernity. Once an important point of the Silk Road, and today the largest central Asian metropolis, a visit to Tashkent will provide you with an ideal opportunity you to explore the finest of Uzbekistan’s rich, millennia-old heritage.

Travel Highlights

  • The beautiful, blue-domed Amir Timur Museum is a stunning architectural feat that is dedicated to the Turco-Mongol conqueror, one of the most important historical figures of the region.
  • Uzbekistan State Museum of History is an appealing architectural fusion of local and Soviet style. It houses over 250,000 artefacts originating from central Asia.
  • A true oasis in the middle of the city, the Tashkent Botanical Garden is a harmonious collection of over 4,500 species of flowers, trees and other plants. It is ideal when you need to escape the hustle and bustle of the urban center.
  • The intricately ornate State Museum of Applied Art dates back to the early 20th century. Today, it hosts some of the finest examples of local applied art, including embroidery, carpet weaving and jewelry making.

Travel Tips

  • The most convenient way to get around the Uzbek capital is by metro. The city has three lines, which cover most of the sightseeing areas. Furthermore, riding the metro will give you a chance to see the grand, lavishly ornate Soviet-style underground stations.
  • Uzbek is the official language is Tashkent; however, you will find most people and businesses communicate in Russian.
  • Summers in Tashkent (especially months of July and August) tend to get very hot, while it’s not unusual for temperatures to drop below zero during winter months. Therefore, it is advisable to visit the Uzbek capital during spring (April to June) or early fall (September to mid-October), when the weather is moderate and ideal for sightseeing.
