Come with us on a journey through Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan.

Travel with us on one of the most fascinating sections of the ancient Silk Road, exploring the convergence of cultures when East meets West at Samarkand and Bukhara.

You will encounter a broad range of cultures and civilisations, from the nomadic peoples of Kyrgyzstan with their hunting eagles and their yurt-like Gurs to the remnants of Soviet Russia including a perfomance of the famed Bolshoi Ballet at the grand opera house in Tashkent.

Lovers of textiles will enjoy the handmade rugs, hand woven Margilan silks, velvet ikat, and block prints using centuries old techniques.

Highlights include visiting the three oldest Hamams (Steam Baths) in Bukhara dating from the 13th Century, the beautiful Madrasahs of Registan square,  Ak Saroy Palace in Shakhrisabz
