I would like to thank you for organizing what has been an excellent experience overall for us. We are thrilled about our stay in Uzbekistan, the sight and the hospitality of the people. What really made a difference to us was:
The quality of the guides. Their depth and breadth of knowledge was phenomenal. I had done quite a bit of reading before the trip and was happy to be able to make the connections between what they shared with us and what I knew already. It helped me to enhance my understanding of the history of the locations.
Also, I think that the Sarmysh Gorge was really worth the extra time to go and visit it. I’m sure it’s not on the traditional tourist tours and not everyone may be interest in rock drawings but it is worth the effort for anyone with some interest beyond the architectural beauties of Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva. It’s a nice window on some of the earlier civilizations that were already in the region. It’s only 1 and a half hour dirive from Bukhara.
Ravshan, the driver, was very friendly and helpful.
Thanks and we will be happy to recommend your services to any of our friends and colleagues.
I have also updated my website with a long posting about our trip. Hope you like it.
