When most people land in this region, they have absolutely no idea what to expect. By the end of their stay, they don’t want to leave. This is the ultimate tour of Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan.

Everywhere you look in this region there seems to be the most beautiful alpine or the most mesmerizing snow-covered mountains, the most dramatic gorges and beckoning deserts. You’ll find yourself in the heart of the Silk Road, surrounded by the kindest people welcoming you into their homes, feeding you, teaching you about their culture. It’s a region where you will stay in traditional yurts, warm guesthouses and even with local families and you will partake in local activities everywhere you go.

Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan are mysterious lands that few travelers reach. But for those who do travel to these countries, they quickly become two of their favorite destinations on the planet.

(You can either take the complete tour of both Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan or you can opt for a shorter tour by joining on Day 6 in Osh and covering only the Uzbekistan portion of the trip.)

What other travelers say

I’ve never been on a group tour before, but I would definitely join one of your tours again. It was a perfect mix of city/town and nature, and Masha made it all the more special. She always knew what we needed and wanted. She was able to answer all our questions whether it was Kyrgyz culture, soviet history and everything in between. If you ever branch further into the Stans, Central Asia or the Middle East I will definitely be booking a place on a tour!
Amy M. (Ireland)
It was so much more than I expected. Although I usually travel alone, and I was not sure initially if I could fit into this kind of travel, I now know that that was the best way to go. Masha….she is a guide extraordinaire! Her encyclopedic knowledge and her fluency in the Russian language was particularly invaluable, plus her constant enthusiasm, sense of fun and boundless energy…just awe-inspiring!
Kae Chee W. (Singapore)
Awesome! Good stays, cool driver, best guide, very "local" and not only sightseeing, overall a unique experience!

About Masha »

Masha Preslitskaya

Guide for: Kyrgyzstan, Iran

 

I was born in the USSR and for as long as I remember I wanted to travel to England. Imagine my surprise when in 2006 I found myself in Beijing at a tour leader training for an Australian travel company. Since then I’ve travelled and led tours all over Southeast, South, North and West Asian countries.

My passion is the Silk Road region with its history and diversity of cultures. I love old caravanserais, long drives through the countryside, history museums with 4,000 year old (and older) artifacts, and the great variety of food the region offers. My Kindle is full of history books, I always carry a can of Tiger Balm and I am one of those people who climbs every staircase for a better view and buys ice-cream at every station during a train ride. And with all my travels I actually haven’t made it to England yet!
