11 days

Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan - two countries with a shared culture, yet simultaneously so unique. During this 11-day tour you will explore not only the highlights of Uzbekistan, but also the South-Kazakhstan region, where mausoleums from the 12th - 15th centuries are preserved as well as sites of ancient settlement. Appreciate the ways in which these neighbouring destinations are different, whilst enjoying the minarets, blue domes and bazaars that adorn both countries.

We will tailor this trip to you. Change anything - from excursions to accommodation to places visited.
