Suggest buying a good guidebook. You might take a look at Lonely Planet's forum as well, not many travelers here go to Central Asia.

At the top go to "view by country" and drop down till you see Turkmenistan. From there you can see what posts are here.
Good luck.
Larry,

Dear all as I look this Notoria it is not the Turkmenistan travel agency I can't find their address and so if I search google for local agencies I can't find it, for now, I contacted with some agencies from google search I hope I will stay on one of them after their response to my e-mails.

Huh? Type "Travel Notoria" into Google and it's literally the first hit that comes up. Travel agent in Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan for tours and trips

Yes, I get this first but when I type Turkmenistan travel agency I can't find it on the first page so I think it is not so popular but thanks for suggestions. For now, I have a reply from Trawelco Turkmenistan travel agency is there anybody who travel with this agency ?

If you google Travel Notoria, you will see it mentioned in a number of blogs and trip reports (e.g. my own TR: https://www.lonelyplanet.com/thorntr...travel-notoria, as well as this excellent photographer's report: https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/trip...kmenistan.html ). I assure you that it's legit operation.

I doubt there are many (if any) people on here who have been to Turkmenistan, so you're not going to get a whole lot of feedback on agencies here.

Thanks for this link . It was really great trip report . I hope our visa application will not be rejected because on his new zeeland pasport it was rejected. The agencies told me that for italian tourist it is not rejected. So we will send forms in several months before the trip .
