TRIP REVIEWS (4)

Brianna and Alice

We loved this trip very much. Tatev, our incoming tour manager was so easy to deal with. She was very supportive and attentive to our wishes during the planning stage and the actual tour. We also want to thank Alla, our charming guide, who was very kind to us throughout our time Uzbekistan, and even showed us the coziest restaurants and cost-effective shopping centers. Thank you once again for everything!

Peter and Anastasia

When we decided to visit Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan, we started studying various company profiles and found Arara Central Asia. Finally we chose 19-day tour packages which included 5 countries. The itinerary was very well structured; we had a free time in the evenings for enjoying ourselves. Arara offers multi-profile services and all-inclusive tour packages with wide choice of hotels. Honestly hotels play a great role for us, as we value our comfort. After being offered a big list of suitable hotels, we chose the ones we liked the most. Overall we were not disappointed; some of the hotels had minor issues which are not worth mentioning, as were solved quite quickly.

In the end, I want to tell that Arara is a trustworthy company which you can safely use.

5 countries in 19 days!! Arara Central Asia, thank you for making this adventure happen. What can I say, I fell in love with the breathtaking nature views of Almaty and took hundreds of photos of Big Almaty Lake; enjoyed exploring the exquisite architecture of Samarkand; had an exceptional opportunity of visiting oasis city Marv; and many more. The memories of these treasures will stay with me forever.

As for the tour organization and comfort, everything was organized at highest level. The vehicles were quite comfy, the flights were mostly on time and saved much time for us to relax at hotels or stroll in the cities. Guides were very polite and assisting.

Arara CA – highly recommended company!
