About this trip

Adventure through Uzbekistan on our epic 7-day itinerary through Tashkent, Bukhara and Samarkand. We've designed this trip so you'll explore the heart of the Golden Age of Islam in Central Asia, all while enjoying delicious Uzbek food, trying your hand at Islamic arts and enjoying beautiful architecture and scenery.

Wondering what it's like to travel with us? Here's what Salih said after joining this trip in March 2022:

My trip with Halal Travel Guide was amazing
"My trip with Halal Travel Guide was full of adventure and discovery, without the hassle of having to plan.

I went to Uzbekistan and was warmly treated by everyone, we had aid of a local guide Humoyun who knew the language and people to ultimately keep us safe and informed wherever we went.
I was really impressed with the amount of care we received throughout the trip.
The tour itself was rich in Islamic history and for each city we visited we had a specialist guide accompany our main guide and group to share their knowledge.

There were no concerns in regards to transport while on the trip, picking a great hotel or worrying about the best place to eat as it was all arranged.. we simply showed up and enjoyed a great trip all round

Soumaya has done a great job in bringing value to anyone travelling with HTG especially if you’re going to a country you’ve never been to.

Personally I don’t think I would’ve ever been able to match the quality of service HTG provided me if I were to plan and do Everything myself."
