Samarkand is one of the most famous cities in Uzbekistan and Central Asia, known as the 'Rome of the East' to travellers and also one of the major centres of the Great Silk Road during its existence. The city was the capital of the once enormous Timurid Empire and gained international fame in the 14th and 15th centuries.Book now
The historical monuments of Samarkand are spread at a distance from each other, so the Samarkand tour includes a vehicle with a driver and a tour guide. The duration of the tour is about 6-7 hours.
If required we will be happy to arrange train tickets for the speed train to/from Samarkand at an additional charge.
