Uzbekistan holiday, silk road and desert
Memorable parts? Experiencing a rare storm in the desert on the journey to the shores of the Aral Sea. The tracks soon turned into raging streams, there was thunder and lightning and even hail. We had been prepared for dust but the 4X4 drivers quickly adapted to floods and mud so we had an exciting off road experience. Tips? The wild camping and spending a night in a yurt contrast well with sightseeing in the fabulous cities of Khiva, Bukhara and Samarkand. Be adaptable and enjoy... (more)Diana Rybinski

Uzbekistan Silk Road tour
Memorable parts? Visit to desert fortresses north of Urgench. Tips? Relax and enjoy the people and country but make sure your drivers and guides understand your itinerary and interests. Local benefits? Yes although one does wonder about the use of cars in certain environments. Overall rating? Excellent! (more)John Bird
From 1395 excluding flights
The Silk Route, Beijing to Tashkent
Memorable parts? The sights and experience was truly magnificient, hard to pinpoint as there were so many. Had the most wonderful travelling companions, and though we got stuck in no man's land between China and Kyrghistan, nobody complained. Tips? To travel as light as possible, to keep an open mind in case something unforeseen happens and to enjoy all the wonderful people you come across everywhere. A smile goes such a long way and gives so much in return ! Local benefits? We... (more)Gunilla Westerlund

Silk Road tour, cities of the Silk Road
Memorable parts? Seeing the Darvaza gas crater at night. Tips? Go with an open mind and remember you are travelling as part of a group. That means you must consider the other peole in the group. It is rude to always keep your fellow travellers waiting. Local benefits? Not particularly. Overall rating? A good trip to an interesting part of the world. (more)Simon Emery

Uzbekistan holidays, tailor made
Very well organised, fascinating, memorable and packed with thought-provoking information. Feel I've been on a rollercoaster history lesson from 500 BC to the 21st century. Highly recommended. (more)Caroline Gant
Most memorable was the flight in the Russian helicopter to base camp, the cycling & horse riding through amazing scenery, Emma's cooking and great travelling companions. (more)Penny Bulbaczynskyj
The buildings and culture are out of this world but don't go for the cuisine....It was a totally different experience, challenging on occassions (the roads) but absolutely well worth it. (more)Tony Canning
From 1757 excluding flights
Silk Road cultural holiday
Memorable parts? Walking in the mountains of Kyrgyzstan. Tips? Be flexible. Don't expect a 5 star beach holiday but it is a much more rewarding experience. Engage with local people. Read the holiday information before going. There is much good advice there, some of which is from previous travellers. Local benefits? Yes to all three. Overall rating? A series of memorable experiences that will continue to be thought about in the weeks and months to come. (more)Roger Slade
From 2295 including domestic flights only
Uzbekistan holiday, small group tour
Memorable parts? The whole trip was memorable but plov night really sticks in the mind. The locals were very friendly which added a bit of magic. Tips? Take your own tonic it is not available anywhere in the country! Local benefits? We certainly put some investment into the country not sure how much benefit it was. Environmentally no idea of our impact. Overall rating? Great, nice group, well rounded tour (more)Dominic Long
From 1599 - 1699 including UK flights
Silk Road holidays, Central Asia
Most memorable? It has to be Kyrgyzstan. The landscape, the people, sleeping in yurts - even the food. All fantastic. (more)Sue Noble
Seeing the breathtaking mountain views in Kyrgyzstan was the most memorable part of this holiday. (more)Jayne Hanlin
The most memroabel part of the holiday was the yurt stay in Son Kul and Tash Rabat and Samarkand. (more)Karen O'Driscoll
From 3295 including domestic flights only
Trans Asian Express, Beijing to Tashkent
Memorable parts? Kyrgyzstan for the scenery. Tips? If you want to learn about the Silk Road this is not the tour for you. Local benefits? Some benefit to local economy from yurt stays and home-stays. Overall rating? Enjoyed the holiday, BUT! We expected the operator to go more off the beaten track. We could have done the whole tour independently. A lot of time wasted on long lunches in characterless restaurants. We skipped these in favour of a snack in colourful local... (more)David Andrews
