Khiva, Bukhara, Samarkand: names that evoke the magic of a past time. Uzbekistan, also known as Transoxiana (meaning ‘Across the Oxus’), lies at a true crossroads of cultures, from Chinese to Arab, Indian to Persian and Mongol.
Perhaps the most enchanting part of the fabled Silk Road, with stunning blue domes set off by a backdrop of piercing azure skies and desert dunes.
The locals are colorful and are some of the warmest and most welcoming people you will meet anywhere in the world.
Join Greg Tepper on our second Founder’s Tour to this incredible country. Highlights include:
- A private view of the oldest Koran in the world in Tashkent
- A private tour of the avant-garde Savitsky museum in Nukus
- An exclusive folk show in the Hareem at the Tash Hauli Palace in Khiva
- Dinner under the stars in Ichan Kala, Khiva
- Meet local craftsmen reviving ancient crafts in each city
Greg has been traveling to Uzbekistan since the collapse of the Soviet Union and personally selected Uzbekistan for our second Founder’s Trip, as it is a destination where you can enjoy the benefits of being in a group of other travelers, and experience things you would not be able to as an individual.
