Guide reviews


We booked this tour back in January 2020, but due to the pandemic, our tour had to be postponed to November 2020, we constantly spoke with Satine (who works for Arara) directly on the phone and on WhatsApp. Very helpful and friendly. We needed to make last minute changes and she was very open to our suggestions and willing to help with budget and time. Would highly recommend Arara.

In addition to the tour itself, the choice of the guide was excellent. Guide Shukhrat who accompanied us on the tour was ever knowledgeable about the history of Uzbekistan and very worldly and open to as seeing all our questions. accompanied us on the tour.

In October, I visited Uzbekistan and I want to express my congratulations to this company and thanks to my tour operator Muzaffar for the great organisation of the tour in the choice of cities and places I visited. I joint to the group of eight who were very friendly and nice people. However, our first guide was so rude and impolite that we asked Muzaffar to change her with knowledgeable, enthusiastic and energetic guide Shukhrat. Hotels were nice, but there seems to be a problem with hot and cold water. I’d chosen the tour to Uzbekistan which was great, especially days in Bukhara. However, I’ll decide to return and visit entire Central Asia in the future that I left behind again with this company.
Kind regards.

Uzbekistan and everything there was amazing!!! Each member of our group was satisfied and very grateful for clarity and attention of the professional staff! Our guides Shukhrat in Tashkent, Raya in Samarkand, Malika in Bukhara and Alisher in Khiva are experts in their job and told us much more about the history, culture, traditions, customs and cuisine of Uzbekistan. It was very informative and interesting! Also, it should be noted our drivers, they are amazing too, but one of them wasn’t so communicative. We had hot and cold water problem in the hotel of Bukhara. But in general, we were grateful for an educational trip to Uzbekistan. All members want to come back to see something new and explore the other parts of Central Asia!!!
Sincere regards,
