Tour companies in Uzbekistan

Hi all. I'm going to be traveling in Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, and Kyrgyzstan this fall and want to use a Central Asian company for visa and hotel arrangements, and possibly some local guide work in areas that are a bit off the beaten path. Three that have been recommended by friends are: Advantour, Emir Travel, and East Site Travel. Many thanks to anyone with knowledge and advice they can share.

TIA, Kelly

If you decide to do a bus tour of it all....use Baraka Journeys!! They are who I went with and it was a super tour.

Have used East Site, the company is in a word, terrible. The tour was a bait and switch and the entire trip turned into the trip from hell. I would steer clear of this company. Can't comment on the other two companies.

I just got back from Uzbekistan yesterday and was there for 17 days. I traveled in a group with Salom Travel, which is based in Bukhara. We stayed at their boutique hotel, Salom Inn Hotel in Bukhara, and it was my favorite hotel of the entire trip.

I think Salom Travel would be a good choice.

We traveled to Uzbekistan with Advantour and will hire them again when we, hopefully, return to Central Asia. Feruza planned a brilliant trip for us!
