Join our group Silk Road holiday in Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and Tajikistan

Uzbekistan and its neighbours have to be one of the most enigmatic parts of the world, tucked away between regional superpowers and fiercely contested over the years. Its position on the great Silk Road which once linked China to Europe has meant that it has been subject to a vast array of different influences, from Buddhist kingdoms to the armies of Alexander the Great, Genghis Khan and Tamerlane, all of which have left their mark. Our group tours and tailor made holidays to Uzbekistan take in the very best of the country. This neglected corner of the world is home to some of the most incredible architecture you are ever likely to see, oozing with the atmosphere of past glories – the medressas and mausoleums of cities like Samarkand and Bukhara have to be seen to be believed – and the whole area is home to some truly stunning scenery, from forbidding deserts to inspiring mountains. Uzbekistan is only slowly becoming recognised for the treasures that it contains and is delightfully off the mainstream tourist map – discover the heart of the Silk Road now before more discover it.
