1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

We had a great evening after dinner sat facing the Registan in Samarkand. The sun was setting and the view was fantastic. The locals were also out, taking wedding photos and other things, and one or two stopped to practice their English.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Your guide in Turkmenistan will probably want to be with you nearly everywhere, so make sure that you are comfortable with that.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We were travelling in low season, so I think that the local restaurant owners were probably grateful for our business, particularly in Khiva.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

The holiday was excellent. We really wanted to travel along a section of the silk road and get a feel for the history and place. We achieved both of those things. The people that we encountered were friendly and the journey passed without any significant problems.
