We are so glad we went to Uzbekistan! We could not have done it without a guide and Shokhrukh is the best you'll find. He's knowledgeable, organized and fun to spend time with. Visiting three cities, we had a flight, 2 train rides and 3 different hotels: thanks to Shokhrukh, everything was seamless. He took us to all the sights we wanted as well as showing us things we never would have found on our own. I cannot stress enough how essential it is to have a guide in Uzbekistan. So worth the investment!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank-you, Cynthia/Kevin. Despite the cold weather I had the warmest feelings from this wonderful trip with you. See you in New York!

I recently finished a 7-day tour of Uzbekistan with Shokhrukh and I could have not been happier!!! From my initial contact with him to the last days of my tour everything was handled professionally and expertly. He always promptly answered any questions I had. As a solo female traveler, I was a bit apprehensive about traveling from the US to Central Asia alone, but I felt incredibly safe. I can say that his English is exceptional and his studies in History and Economics make him an excellent Uzbek guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Tibby, I am happy that you liked 7-day tour of Uzbekistan. I hope you will come next year as a member of the International Explorers Club. Thank-you.
Shokhrukh is a young and energetic boy. His planning was perfect. He was ever helpful to me and did everything to make me comfortable in Uzbekistan. He loves his country and made me fall in love with Uzbekistan. It was my first visit to any country in central Asia. Before the tour, I was anxious about everything, the country, the people, the food, the transport, but as the tour progressed everything seemed so easy and beautiful. Please do visit Uzbekistan. It is much better than the pictures you see !
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dinesh, Thank-you so much for your feedback. I am really excited that you liked the tour.

A lot to see in just 9 days between Khiva and Tashkent. A lot of information to share and time together to make it happen. Never late, always good-humoured and easy to adapt the itinerary if and when needed, Shokhrukh and his drivers showed us the best of Uzbekistan in a very relaxed and easy going manner. Being a vegetarian in Uzbekistan is not always easy, but we managed. And also due to glorious weather/continued blue skies the trip was a joy together with him. We liked it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Hans, I hope you arrived well back to home country. I am happy to know that you liked the tour. You and Adri were nice so the tour went well. In five years' time there will be more choices for vegetarians and vegans hopefully. Good luck! I will follow your web site. Best wishes
I and my friends have travelled almost all around the world but the hospitality and cozy atmosphere that we felt from Shakhruh and our driver Temur was exclusive. They were with us from early morning, trying to show and give us the best of their country. Its real value for money and you really need good host while you are in Uzbekistan.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for visiting Uzbekistan. It was wonderful time with you. Hope to see you again. Best wishes to you.
Shokhrukh is a very good guide. Very caring and helpful. We were 5 and the flexibility makes the difference in this tour. Meaning we had the choice of doing what we wanted every single day, following the program wasn't necessary. Another good aspect was that with Shokhrukh we had a more local experience as well. Meaning we didn't just see the touristic places but also local markets, non-touristic districts etc. This was only if you wanted of course. To conclude definitely a five star tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot, Mehmet. I am happy that You liked the tour. I also enjoyed the moments with you all. Yakında görüşürüz.
