Uzbekistan Historical Tours

Central Asia’s past reaches back into time immemorial, and nowhere is this heritage more tangible than in Uzbekistan, whose legendary cities and relics of old continue to astonish and impress even the most seasoned of travelers. Azure mausoleums, spiraling minarets, grandiose madrasahs and stately palaces herald us to eras which, thanks to such astonishing treasures as the Registan, Ark Fortress and Gur-Emir, are not relegated to legend alone.

Uzbekistan Historical Tours transport you back in time to experience each successive era of the nation’s colorful and tumultuous past. Zoroastrian and Buddhist ruins speak of a pre-Islamic era, while the medieval city complexes of Bukhara and Samarkand paint a life-size portrait of Uzbekistan at its zenith under the leadership of Tamerlane. From Kuva to Khiva, Kokand to Khorezm, Uzbekistan Historical Tours burst with Old World charm and historically monumental relics that beg to be explored, photographed and appreciated.
