This tour was cancelled in 2020 and we plan to run it when the time is right to travel to Uzbekistan.
Immerse yourself in the Silk Road, the world’s most famous and lively trading highway. Uzbekistan is the gem of this historic route, with its bustling bazaars, towering mosques and ancient cities. Experience the rich and diverse culture of Central Asia with fascinating architecture, history, religion and, most of all, its friendly people. Beginning and ending in Tashkent, explore the ancient cities of Khiva, Bukhara and Sa- markand, and the greenest city in Uzbekistan, Fergana. Visit the dying Aral Sea, one of the world’s envi- ronmental disaster areas. See where communism made its mark on the Asian steppes, with Soviet build- ings butting up against glorious Islamic architecture. This tour is full of memorable experiences – eating dinner in a private home, seeing artisans at work and enjoying traditional performances.
