The Hobbit (movie) concludes in December. To celebrate, we’re offering a magical £800 off one departure so you can see New Zealand’s incredible landscapes. Departs: 7th February (Land Only: 9 February)
Uzbekistan is known as the " land of the golden smile" not a reference to a national happiness index but rather that many local women and some men have mouths featuring the status symbol of a full set of shiny golden teeth. It's dazzling! The Uzbeks are good spirited and genuinely hospitable. I didn't feel like a tourist or a traveller more like a guest of Uzbekistan.
A brilliant tour to a wonderful country. The itinerary is very thorough and gives a comprehensive view of the life, landscapes, and culture of Uzbekistan. Recommended to anyone who likes to see a unique country and travel off the beaten track.
This trip has an excellent itinerary - an absolutely perfect mix of guided sight-seeing, individual time to explore & little extras, like the camel ride and lake-side swim. (Again, this was just the right amount of time as we met other groups who had two nights at the yurt camp & we felt that the timing for us was perfect after after the desert castles).
A wonderful, rewarding holiday in a country that is just waking up to tourism but has so much to offer with lovely, friendly people and mind blowingly fabulous buildings and cities. Be prepared to take the rough with the smooth - the hotels are basic but clean and (usually) the showers work. Food is tasty if sometimes repetitive and costs are reasonable.
We realise that every holiday destination is also someone else's home and that we should leave places as we found them. Find out more about how we incorporate responsible travel into our adventure and activity holidays, and how you can help by donating to one of our responsisble travel projects.
