I highly recommend using Arara to plan your trip to Uzbekistan. I can only write about Arara from a customer service perspective, unfortunately, because my April tour and the October tour I re-booked on were both cancelled because of Covid. I am in London and wouldn't have thought about using a Tashkent company until a friend of a friend recommended Arara. From my initial inquiry through to full refund of my deposit the service was excellent. Every email was answered promptly and no query were considered too small. I was booked to go on a group tour, but I wanted to stay on in Uzbekistan for a couple of days at the end and a bespoke itinerary was prepared to fit my time and budget requirements. The travel consultant who looked after my booking was excellent. I will certainly use Advantour when trips to Uzbekistan returns.

I recommend visiting Uzbekistan and traveling with Arara. A wonderful country with a great history from the Great Silk Road, the brutal invasion of Genghis Khan to the center of scientific discovery with Ulugbek and home to the famous Islamic scholar Imam Bukhari ... magical architecture.

After a long lock down, my husband and I decided to take a chance and open the travel season for ourselves. We decided that we would fly to Uzbekistan, as we had been planning for a long time, but the pandemic changed our plans.

Muzaffar was our Arara Tourism Consultant who was exhaustive, quickly answering all my questions before traveling. When our flight from London via Turkey was delayed by almost 24 hours due to covid (we flew in on the weekend instead), Muzaffar changed our itinerary so that we didn't miss anything special and kept in touch to ensure we were picked up and reached our hotel is safe. Our guide Angelica, who accompanied us through Tashkent, Bukhara and Samarkand, was knowledgeable, friendly and wonderful in telling the rich history of Uzbekistan. Fantastic reliable travel company and inspiring trip for those looking for something very special.

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.
