This 8-day tour is the perfect introduction to Uzbekistan. We start our journey in the ancient capital of Tashkent, a former Silk Route city which still retains its role as one of the most important cities in the region. From here we take a short flight to Urgench and on to nearby Khiva which is situated in the Khorzem Oasis. In Khiva we have a full day of sightseeing, including a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage site at the Ichan-Qala Fortress. Leaving Khiva behind we fly to Bukhara where we'll have a comprehensive full day walking tour and also watch the National Show at Nodir Devan Begi Madrasah. Our final city of interest is incredible Samarkand where amoungst many of places, we'll visit the spectacular Registan Square which has graced the covers of many famous travel guides of the years! Our final journey is onboard one of the high-speed trains back to Tashkent where this exciting week will come to an end.
Many flights into Uzbekistan will operate via Istanbul, Turkey - Why not combine your week in Uzbekistan with some time on one of our Turkey group tours.
