TRIP REVIEWS (4)

Bhavana Navuluri

This was a really special tour to Central Asia. The land is an absolute surprise of ancient culture and wonderful nature. I felt very comfortable just when started my trip planning. My tour agent was very professional always providing proficient and fast answers to any question I had. Tour program is very balanced with some free time to have walked in the cities. Guides are excellent, Uzbekistan guide Anjelika had big knowledge on history, Tajikistan guide Bobozhon was a big fan of nature, his English was not perfect but he made up for it with a good sense of humour. Uzbekistan cities Samarkand Bukhara and Khiva are the real highlight of the tour. Hotels were very good and central located. Only one concern is I wouldn’t mind having freedom on the meals and restaurant choice, that would be great. Overall I am satisfied with Arara Central Asia and sharing information on them.
Many thanks.

Just finished the tour over a week ago and it was great. Our guides Anjelika, Jennet and Lola were knowledgeable and enthusiastic, it's easy to work with them and the best hotels available in each city. We did the "Three Stans" tour and were able to cover the main highlights of each country. In case you want to see more you need to plan more days as the distances from one site to another is big and, there are some tiring drives. Hotels were very good, with good breakfast and excellent collation. Central Asia is worth to travel, planning Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan for 2020 with the same tour operator.

Group of 6 of our friends were on 3 Stans tour, and it was very good. All went smooth besides of border crossing, the vehicle didn’t take us to the neutral zone and we walked with luggage. But drivers always helped to carry luggage from/to hotel/car. Our Uzbek guide Dilnoza and Turkmen guide Jennet were very good, always helpful and attentive to all of our small group. Food also was good sometimes very oily, but tasty, though one of our group members had difficulty in finding veggie food. Overall, all of us agreed that the tour was well planned and professionally handled. Big thanks to Muzaffar our tour manager who was always in contact and helped with small issues like hotel hot water etc. I was a bit worried when started tour planning with so young company but everything was well done good luck.
