This tour to Uzbekistan includes the must-sees Khiva, Bukhara and Samarkand, as well as a visit to the Ferghana Valley. This tour includes private transfers and sightseeing, as well as free days in Samarkand and Khiva for you to explore at your own pace.

Uzbekistan is endowed with some of the most magnificent buildings in the Islamic world, breathtaking monuments created by ancient rulers in an attempt to ensure their own immortality. It is a journey through oasis, river valley, desert and grassland to the foothills and mountains of the western Tien Shan and Gissaro-Alay Ranges. Uzbekistan, as a tourist destination, is in its infancy but for the adventurous and well-travelled, it holds the architectural gems of Central Asia such as Bukhara, Samarkand and Khiva.
