Short trip to Samarkand
Sep. 2021 • Business
It was a very well organized, well managed tour. All the members of the team were courteous and considerate of our requests. They picked us from our hotel, dropped us back, and managed everything in between which meant less for us to worry about. Kamila, our guide, did a great job of taking us through the history of the different sites while also managing the time and making sure we cover everything in the short duration of the trip. I can happily recommend the tour to anyone looking for a quick trip to Samarkand.

Fun, informative day trip
Jan. 2020 • Solo
Made a last minute booking (during low season) and was promptly set up with an itinerary, including transfer to/from my accommodations in Tashkent as well as train tickets to/from Samarkand.

I was initially hesitant about doing a guided tour as opposed to exploring on my own but I'm glad I did! Muftana provided so much information about the history of Uzbekistan and the sights we were seeing. I wouldn't have been able to know any of that if I toured by myself.

We also stopped for a delicious lunch of samsas!

Samarkand day tour
Jan. 2020 • Solo


An excellent day tour in Samarkand. Friendly Izzat contacted me in advance for train travel arrangement and picked me from my accommodation exactly as stipulated. The train ride wasn’t too bad either. The train terminal looks a bit daunting but it’s pretty straight forward. Staff there were polite and able to communicate effectively in English.
At Samarkand, I was picked up by my lovely tour-guide ( Maftuna) whom was very endearing and knowledgeable! She not only enlightened me with the history of Samarkand but also a view into Uzbek culture through her eyes.
The only downside was that I visited on New Year’s Day ( totally my own fault) so most establishments were closed. Maftuna and the nice driver searched wide and far for lunch and luckily found a delish kebab place.
Samarkand is absolutely beautiful and rich in history. A must see.

Thank you Go To Uzbekistan for making it happen!!!

Loved Samarkand
Sep. 2019 • Solo
Samarkand is beyond any expectation, even if I saw lots of pictures and read about it doesn’t even compare. I’m sure some of my friends are planning already a trip there. I got picked up from the hotel and taken to the train station, actually led to the train ( it can be a nightmare as there’s no digital board with trains coming, time, direction, line all that and if you see anything written is in Uzbek or Russian( I know a little Russian and still seemed v difficult). I had a guide waiting for me in Samarkand . Great English, highly educated, friendly yet polite, knowledgeable and opened to changes.

Excellent, Personalized Day Tour
Jul. 2019 • Friends
The one day tour of Samarkand, departing from Tashkent, was incredible. The guide and driver were both exceptionally kind, and took great care in keeping the two tourists (myself and one other person who had both booked separately) happy and comfortable. Strong English language skills -- no problem there. It is a relatively long drive from Tashkent (about 4.5 hours) but we left early from our hotel (7am) and didn't feel rushed in Samarkand (very important). We arrived back in Tashkent about 8:30pm. The car was small, but it was new with cold AC, which is about all one can hope for in July heat! The trip included the cost of every sight, drinks along the way, and a nice lunch at a local place. You were never asked to spend any extra money. Very professional. I would highly encourage anyone (all ages) who wants a very personal tour to book with them. They were flexible -- we didn't want to go to the bazaar and they had no problem adjusting the itinerary on the go. You can't get that if you join a bus group with 40 people. Overall, their relaxed attitude made for a casual and fun visit.
