This 11 Day adventure combines the two most popular types of travelling in Uzbekistan! A jeep tour to the Aral Sea and an opportunity to walk the ancient cities.

Our city tour of the country is with excursions to the legendary historical cities of Khiva, Bukhara and Samarkand with grandiose architectural monuments and a jeep tour to the Aral Sea across the uninhabited and little-studied Ustyurt Plateau.

This one tour of Uzbekistan, highly logic and perfectly thought-out, will cover the most popular travel sites, the best places to visit and the country’s main tourist attractions. You will thus travel in two absolutely different dimensions – first in the urban world of human genius, centuries-old culture, oriental cuisine and authentic hospitality, and then in the world of unique nature and enormous areas with extraterrestrial landscapes away from civilisation. May your vacation and adventure holidays in Uzbekistan be interesting, eventful and diverse!
