About this trip

Adventure through Uzbekistan on our epic 11-day itinerary! We've designed this extended itinerary so that you can make the most of your time in Uzbekistan. You'll explore rich Islamic heritage, learn more about important scholars and historical figures who once lived here, enjoy delicious Uzbek cuisine and hone your artistic skills.

Here's what one of our guests, Saadia, says about this trip:

"Adventure in Uzbekistan!
" This was my second trip with HTG - and let's just say I've left a part of my heart in Uzbekistan!

Soumaya's hard work, and planning is quite evident when you see the carefully chosen hotels, and the rich in history itineraries she chooses.

I, truly, was able to sit back and relax and let everything be taken care of. As a meticulous planner, this is extremely hard for me to do normally, but I feel I could not have done it better myself.

Travelling with HTG gives you the added bonus of feeling safe, and finding like minded travellers with whom you form a bond. A special thanks to Humoyun (our local host in Uzbekistan) who ensured the group was taken care of - and added to the spiritual discussions on our many road trips!"

Welcome to Uzbekistan!

You’ll be greeted at the airport and taken straight to your hotel to freshen up and rest a little.

In the afternoon we’ll take you to Chorsu Bazaar, Tashkent’s central market and possibly the best way to get introduced to Uzbek culture.  You’ll have the chance to sample plov, somsa, lagman and so much more!
