Uzbekistan is a wonderful destination. Extremely safe, warm people - big departure from it's soviet republic past. Excellent sightseeing, well organized. Restored monuments help you visualize the glory of cities like this as they stood in the 14th-17th century.
Tashkent feels very modern city, Bukhara feels traditional and Samarkand seems to fit in-between.
Tashkent is a nice city with it's own bit of history. We did Beldersay and surrounding areas from Tashkent, the cable car ride was awesome
We rode the train to Samarkand. Gave us a chance to see the beautiful, rustic countryside at leisure
The monuments in both Samarkand and Bukhara are excellent. The restoration work shows them in all glory. Well done.
The light show in Samarkand - Registon is spectacular. It's pricey, but looks like it goes on every now and then and bystanders watch for free. For a group, it is quite affordable ($150).
The trip involves a bit of walking, all monuments are grand and need you to be on foot to truly enjoy them. You can do it at a leisurely pace.
Overall, excellent program!”
