What our guests say
"I joined the Halal Travel Guide on their trip to Uzbekistan in April 2019, and it was definitely a memorable one. I learnt far more about the country's history than what I already knew, and had the opportunity to try their signature plov dish which was delicious! 😛
The trip most certainly exceeded expectations. Once again Halal Travel Guide wonderfully organised an amazing trip. The accommodation they had picked out for our trip was incredible and don't get me started on the food! (Amazing!!!)
This is my second group tour with Halal Travel Guide and most certainly not my last!"
