    The Spirit of Uzbekistan

    Uzbekistan is still very much off the beaten track. Thus, this tour sheds a fascinating insight into a country with a history going back to the depths of time.

Explore the highlights of Uzbekistan in a never to be forgotten journey of exploration. Explore ancient madrassas, magnificent mausoleums and Mosques. Wander Old Tashkent, see the superb World Heritage site of the intriguing Ichan-Qala Fortress and sip tea in a Yurt - if the nomads haven’t gone on their travels! Explore the fabled city of Bukhara. Pause at the stunningly beautiful Registan Square in Samarkand. Wander vibrant bazars and try your hand at cooking with a Masterclass. Watch the turn of a potter’s wheel and fascinating Samarkand paper making from Mulberry bark – indeed the famed Babur said the paper was the best in the world! Uzbekistan is a musician’s delight; thus, the tour visits the Opera and Theatre Ballet and, whilst dining with a local family, listening to a traditional folk music recital.

Testimonials

  •   quote-mark  We were very pleased with the organisation of our visit to Kamptee. With such short notice, you did a great job getting the contacts with the gentleman, Father Sebasti who in turn made contact with Noel Joseph and in turn George Taj. We were thrilled that our guide Irfan and driver Mr Singh, rearranged our afternoon so that we could wait till Noel could return to Kampti in the afternoon. We enjoyed a fill-in drive and visit to Ramtek temple. Guide Irfan and driver Roshan were most accommodating, as our day didn't finish til 5.50pm back in Nagpur. Noel took us back to the cemetery. He had arranged for us to go to the Nagpur Diocese office the next day, where he had arranged with George to view the archived books and registers kept there from the Garrison Church in Kampti. Several officials helped us in Nagpur. We were thrilled to find our family Baptism registrations and some extra information, which proved our ancestor had been in the Army at Kampti a gunner in the D Troop, Horse Artillery, Kampti. quote-mark2
