Tour Itinerary
+

Day 1 UK to Tashkent

After taking Saga’s included UK VIP door-to-door travel service to the airport, fly overnight to Tashkent.

Day 2 Tashkent

Enjoy a late breakfast at a local restaurant before flying to Urgench and transferring to Khiva for two nights at the locally rated 3-star Asia Khiva or a similar hotel.

Day 3 Urgench-Khiva

Today's included morning walking tour will reveal Khiva's inner fortress, Itchan Kala, an architectural treasure trove of carefully restored mud-walled monuments. Highlights include the Ismail Khodja Mausoleum, the 16th-century Kunya-Ark Castle and 19th-century Muhammed Amin Khan Madrassah. Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant and dinner with a folk show at the 19th-century Kibla Tozabog, the summer residence of the Khiva Khans.

Day 4 Khiva to Bukhara

A long day's journey will take you across the Kyzyl-Kum or Red Desert, a route that once took camel caravans laden down with silk, spices and other exotic goods a month to make. You'll pause en route for a packed lunch before continuing to Bukhara, where you stay three nights at the locally rated 4-star Asia Bukhara or a similar hotel. 

Day 5 Bukhara

A centre of trade and education for more than 2,000 years, Bukhara is the best example of a medieval city in Central Asia. Seek out its key sights on an included three-quarter day walking tour of its old town, including the 10th-century Samanids Mausoleum. 

Day 6 Bukhara

Journey beyond the heart of the city today to the magnificent 16th to 19th-century Naqshbandi Mausoleum, built for the founder of the Naqshbandi Sufi order, on an included morning tour. Beautiful blue-glazed tiles adorn the facade of this domed, multi-arched masterpiece. Also visit the summer residence of the last Emir of Bukhara, Sitorai-Mokhi-Hossa, a reminder of Uzbekistan's era of Russian rule. 

Day 7 Bukhara to Samarkand

After breakfast, relax on a morning coach journey to Samarkand where you stay two nights at the locally rated 4-star Grand Samarkand or a similar hotel. This afternoon, join an included visit to the Afrosiyab Museum before dinner at a local restaurant. 

Day 8 Samarkand

Admire the colourful mosaics, blue domes and lofty arches of Registan Square on today's included tour. This grand plaza is bordered on three sides by a group of splendid structures spanning the 14th to 16th centuries, built by the Timurid dynasty. Afterwards enjoy dinner at a local restaurant. 

Day 9 Shakhrisabz and Samarkand to Tashkent

This morning, travel through the Tahta-karacha Pass to Shakhrisabz to discover 14th to 15th-century Timurid mosques, mausoleums and the ruined gateway of Ak-Saray Palace. Enjoy a taste of local cuisine during an included lunch at a guest house before returning to Samarkand for the two-hour Afrosiab high-speed train journey to Tashkent. 

Day 10 Tashkent

Explore modern Tashkent on an included sightseeing tour, and visit the Museum of History, the Museum of Applied Art and the Khast-Imam complex. This evening, enjoy a farewell dinner at a local restaurant. 

Day 11 Tashkent-UK

Enjoy the morning at leisure before your return flight to the UK and your included UK door-to-door travel service home.
