Tony Garcia

Tajikistan is really a country of high contrasts. It is calm and full of life at the same time. If you are adventure lover like me, you are going to spend one of the best holidays there. I have chosen Highlights of Tajikistan tour from the various tours Tatev offered me. I felt this one would fit me the most, as it was a nice combination of nature, adventure, culture and some historical sites during the way. The guide handled the information in a very professional and capturing way and kept us entertained during the whole trip. The vehicle was quite comfortable, though I would prefer to spend less time in the car.

Arara is the company I chose from a long list of companies on the web and there was not a moment I regretted my decision. It’s a highly qualified and trusted local company based in Uzbekistan, which I will confidently recommend to my friends and relatives.

An experience of a lifetime! Tatev, our charming and professional tour agent, was a blast. Her organizational and management skills gave us a sense of confidence for our upcoming trip. And in the end we were not disappointed. Every stage of our tour was thoroughly prepared starting from our arrival till the moment we departed. The driver was very friendly and punctual. We have always preferred small, nice guesthouses and hotels rather than big chain hotels. Our small but cozy hotel in Dushanbe city center met all our expectations. Arara sent us welcome sweets and fruits, which was so nice of them!

The nature of this country leaves you astonished and amazed. We love easy and leisurely hikes and have enjoyed hiking at marvelous Seven lakes. The water was so transparent that we could clearly see our reflections. We made so many photos (I guess a thousand if not more).

I can really recommend Arara CA to anyone who wants to visit Tajikistan and other Asia countries.
