Visit Uzbekistan

Our selection of Uzbekistan tours reveal a truly unique land filled with colour, culture, caravanserais and beautiful blue minarets and mausoleums. Uzbekistan is an ethnic and cultural melting pot with ancient roots and many stories and secrets to share.

Where do you visit during escorted tours of Uzbekistan?

Our group tours of Uzbekistan have been carefully crafted to showcase both the iconic and lesser-known spots along the famous Silk Road. From the awe-inspiring UNESCO World Heritage site of Khiva, to the noble Registan Square of Samarkand, Uzbekistan is packed full of exciting culture and architecture.

Discover cities rich in colour using the high-speed railway line on our Highlights of Uzbekistan tour. The legacy of Tamburlaine manifests in magnificent buildings and glorious Timurid mosques and shrines.

Architecture connoisseurs will be surprised by Samarkand’s impressive central Asian design, particularly the Registan (the main square) with its surrounding buildings whose pillars, arches and domes come in all colours and shapes. The old town is a treasure trove of old and beautiful buildings dotted around jumbled streets with the Ark, a citadel with 18-metre walls, at its heart.

Our Uzbekistan tours will whisk you away to the large, unique and authentic art museum city of Bukhara. Explore the majestic Poi Kalon Complex, the tea houses of Lyabi-Khauz Square and the striking Maghoki Arrar Mosque. When you join us on the Golden Road to Samarkand, you will feel like you have been transported back through the centuries. 

If you’re looking to indulge your Marco Polo fantasies, you’ll find that the eastern bazaars and tea houses of the Silk Road retain a wonderful atmosphere of times gone by. Become immersed in vibrant colours, noises and aromas as you join in the hustle and bustle – a must during any of our Silk Road tours.

When to go on Silk Road Holidays?

Uzbekistan has a continental climate, with warm summers and cool winters. Due to its size, temperatures can vary in different parts of the country, with warmer weather usually experienced in the south and cooler conditions felt in the north.

To enjoy our holidays to Uzbekistan, we recommend visiting during the spring and autumn. You can expect warm weather and blue skies, without feeling the full heat of the summer months.
