review 9 Oct 2019

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Registan Square in Samarkand. Stunning

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Be prepared for a basic lack of hygiene, with inevitable results! Public (toilets) are often poor and quite unsavoury. Seek out the best restaurants you can - they won’t be expensive and will offer something more exciting than the standard tourist menus of shashlik, plot or dumplings. Never drink the local tap water (including ice).

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Not really - other than providing them with the tourist dollar.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Guide was very good, group was a good mix and a manageable size. Overall very enjoyable.
