Hi there. I am interested in this tour as I have never been to the stan countries. When is a good time to go? I would prefer cooler weather. Also, if nobody goes with me, then I will go alone.
"Bukhara and Samarkand by train" tour review
I recently had a very brief stay in Uzbekistan and can't recommend Anur Tour highly enough in words. Due to my short stay of a little under 2 days i didn't leave Mumin with much to play with but he still came up trumps. I had a day sightseeing in Tashkent and a short train journey to Samarkand with full guided tour there too. Everything went like clockwork, both guides spoke excellent English with a real passion for what they were saying and were extremely knowledgeable. All the drivers were early and i was never in danger of missing anything. When i return to Tashkent i will definitely be giving Mumin and Anur Tours another call.
"Uzbekistan and TAJIKISTAN for 11 days" tour review
I chose Anur Tour after a lot of searching for a trip to Uzbekistan and Tajikistan with a friend, and other people seemed to have a great experience with them. Great if anything was an understatement. Elina answered all of my questions with seemingly bottomless patience in my emails, and once there we had a wonderful time. All hotels were great and in every place we had a guide or driver there to meet us, who were all hugely informative, as well as very nice. Elina met us in person when we arrived in Tashkent and again when we left - she even bought us a delicious dinner!
Top marks. Really excellent. Look no further!

I booked my trip to the Central Asia with Anur tour for a 2.5 weeks trip across the Central Asia. I am glad that I used Anur Tours t plan my trip. I went to Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. I was planning to travel to Turkmenistan but they are notoriously famous for rejecting visas with no explanation. While on the tour I found out that my visa for Turkmenistan has been refused. The Managing Director of Anur Mr. Mumin came personally himself to my hotel along with Zarina, my tour coordinator to explain the situation and offer alternatives which was very kind of them.
Anur helped organize the day trips and the hotel reservations.
From the time I landed to the time I departed there was flawless coordination at each travel destination. Most of the tour guides were excellent, the others were very good. What I liked about the guides were they didn’t want to take me to shops to buy things and that was a Big plus. While in Tajikistan, I got a Kidney stone pain and I was so humbled by the care provided by the guide Shahboz who took me to the hospital and spoke to the doctors.
I would high recommend anyone planning a trip to Central Asia or Uzbekistan or any country in the region to work with Anur tours. They made it a worthwhile experience!
"Hello Uzbekistan" tour review
Excellent! We were absolutely thrilled with the fabulous service provided by Anur during our 7 days/6 nights in Uzbekistan. Unforgettable experiences discovering a fascinating country were accentuated by the impeccable service both in the lead up to our trip with the organizing, and during our stay.
The lovely and efficient Elina communicated quickly and thoroughly with every request and detail. We had quite a few requests, as we opted for a personal Italian-speaking guide throughout, and a dedicated driver for our small group of 4, but still wanted to keep our costs low. The suggested hotels booked and itineraries confirmed were perfectly catered to our needs, and all exceeded our expectations.
The trip went flawless. All sites were spectacular. Our guide was always helpful to point out 2-3 options for excellent nearby restaurants without insisting on a personal choice. There was never the slightest delay or wait checking in or visiting any site/museum, etc.
We greatly appreciated the personal touches offered by Elina and Anur, and were especially thankful for the kind greetings they arranged upon our arrival in Tashkent, and eventual (sad) departure.
Anur is highly, highly recommended and have definitely earned their Number 1 position here! We promise to send friends and family your way!
"" tour review
This tour exceeded our expectations - everything was SO organized and flowed so smoothly. I thought that it was good value as well. I loved the hotels that were selected. Zarina was so responsive and designed a tour specifically for our interests in food. I never ate so well in my life. The buffets at the Serena hotel in Dushanbe, Tajikistan were the culinary highlight of the trip. For that reason alone, I would suggest that this hotel be used for future guests who like great food.
My favorite spots were Bukhara, Uzbekistan and Ashgabat, Turkmenistan. Bukhara for the magical atmosphere, the terrific culture show, and fantastic souvenirs - particularly the very inexpensive but beautiful miniature paintings (I bought 8). Ashgabat was a striking white marble city unlike any other I have seen in the world. I am impressed by all the good the president of the country has done for his people. Flying into the city at night with all the gleaming, orderly white marble buildings and brilliant neon lights was such an experience. I have never seen so many impressive monuments. The city was spotlessly clean as well.
We also enjoyed the well-planned cities of Almaty, Kazakhistan and Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan and their settings against the mountains - they had so many parks and restaurant options!
We survived the border crossing at Turkmenistan and examination of our 20+ drugs by labeling everything for its purpose and smiling a lot. But a visit to Turkmenistan is one that you will not forget. Ashgabat is one of the most fascinating cities in the world (out of the 120 countries we have now visited). We travel a lot, but would not be able to do this tour on our own due to language difficulties and so many transfers (all which went perfectly).
My favorite guides were Elmira in Kazakhstan and Govel (sp?) in Turkmenistan - they were just superb and so knowledgeable. I give our highest recommendation for Anur tours!
"To the Aral Sea..." tour review
We e-mailed Anur Tour in February to organize a 10-day Tashkent-Samarkand-Bukhara-Khiva-Muynak/Aral Sea tour with personal guides and drivers in May.
Ms. Elina from Anur replied promptly with an outline for such a trip. Over the next weeks we worked out the details for daily itineraries, hotels and domestic transportation. In the end our program was exactly what we had hoped for. For simplicity we choose to have Ms. Elina book all travel arrangements within Uzbekistan, including train and air travel.
Once in Uzbekistan Ms. Elina met us personally to deliver the travel documents. Later she called regularly to see if everything was well.
The tour itself went like clockwork. Everything was perfectly organized. Our guides and drivers were always waiting for us when we arrived in different cities. We thought our program was rather ambitious but thanks to Ms. Elina's good planning it seemed easy.
We highly recommend Anur Tour for quality and worry-free holidays.
Thank you for organizing my unforgettable trip in Uzbekistan.
My first trip for Uzbekistan was unforgettable, Anur tour is really good company. I could enjoy my trip thanks to Anur Tour's good guides and drivers. The hotels which Anur Tour selected were located good place and so nice.
I was very impressed with Uzbekistan's amazing history, culture and buildings, and with very nice people and delicious food.
I want to go back to Uzbekistan again, in that time I'll offer again.
Professional tour company for Uzbekistan travellers
If you're planning to explore the Uzbekistan you should most definitely hit up Anur Tour. I needed a Letter of Invitation to get into Uzbekistan and Mumin and Aziza was able to provide one for me and my mate. We booked a rough itinerary through the tour agency - hostels/hotels, transportation between cities and pick ups from airport and train station. Aziza organised a brilliant trip for us and it meant that there was no hassle, no second thinking and most importantly no worries. It was a stress free week and a bit in Uzbekistan thanks to them. 10/10, would highly recommend getting in touch with them, even if you're looking for information.
GREAT tour company for solo travelers!
I just spent a week in Uzbekistan, and I couldn't be more happy with Anur Tour's services. All the way from the first email I sent when I started planning my trip they've been friendly, reliable and efficient. They helped me plan a trip that included everything I wanted to see, did the visa arrangements, and organized a wonderful week for me in this amazing country. Everything within a very reasonable price. I will highly recommend them to other travelers, and I will definitely use them again for other travels in Central Asia.
Went there with a group of 25 we really enjoy the trips. Their friendly and informative guide make this trip a very enjoyable and not to be forgotten. If you planning to go to Uzbekistan please choose anur tour.
Nos encantó la visita que realizamos el pasado mes de marzo a Uzbekistan.
Un viaje increíble y maravilloso. El personal de la agencia Anur Tour nos ha tratado durante todo el viaje cuidando hasta el más mínimo detalle. Nos ha gustado todo. Sus gentes su gastronomía sus medrasas y mezquitas.
Highly Recommend Anur Tour
Highly Recommend Anur TourI booked a group tour of five people to Samarkand from Tashkent with Anur. Our guide Denis was fantastic and really made the history of this fascinating city come alive. The organisation of the tour and payment process was very smooth. I highly recommend booking through Anur!

"Hello Uzbekistan" tour review
Excellent, well organised
Got the visa and paid for the tour in Tashkent then everything went smoothly .....
"One day trip to Khiva" tour review
You have really made me want to go to Uzbekistan and esaleiplcy Samarkand which I had read about as a kid. When I was growing up, we actually had geography classes. It was after I graduated from high school that they folded Geography into Social Studies. And from that time on, Americans knowledge of geography has gone downhill. So I am glad that you tried to get kids excited about geography and traveling the world.
"Guaranteed Departure Uzbekistan tour 2019" tour review
Dear Anur tour, i'm interested in Boysun Bakhor festival , samarkand and Termez with the buddhist sites...if you already know the dates of the festival could you plan a tour for me ad my girlfriend?hope to heard from you soon...best regards, Gaddo.
Please travel with Anur Tours!
I recently returned from a solo visit to Uzbekistan organized by Anur tours. I chose them based on emails received from Aziza, one of the representatives. I was SO impressed with their services. I took one of their regular tours and customized it to meet my own interests and could not have been happier. The guides in each place were knowledgeable and friendly, the recommended accommodations were excellent and the places visited and time alloted were perfect. It was so nice to be met in each place by a guide, and taken to the airport or train station, it took all the worry and hassle out of having to find my own way around. Everyone at the company was amazing, I got sick on my last day and they took care of me like family. I wouldnt hesitate to go back to Uzbekistan, it exceeded all my expectations, and I would definitely use Anur again.
We traveled together with our US friends. I chose Anur Tour because the other two I read about (one Uzbek and the other Kazakh) charged higher prices. Everything was smooth. The guides met us everywhere, transportation was provided and the choice of hotels was good. We were shown the best of Tashkent, Bukhara and Samarkand. The guides are very knowledgeable and can change dollars for Uzbek soms at best (black market) rates.
The bad things we heard about Uzbek customs are exaggerated. Just follow the rules: fill out the customs declaration, mentioning all your valuables, and keep the registration notes you receive at hotels. The country is very quiet and clean and the Uzbeks are very hospitable. The prices are low in general but the ones at the Chor Su bazaar in Tashkent are higher than I expected.
We traveled in November when there are few tourists and it is not hot. Luckily, the sun was shining.
An Uzbekistan Experience
As it was the first time that I had been to Uzbekistan, I was a little reticent about dealing with tour operators that I had never heard of before.
After many hours searching the "net" I decided to go with the travel agency “Anur Tour” and I was not disappointed.
I made the decision to do a day tour of Tashkent and a two day tour of Bukhara and Samarkand.
There service was absolutely amazing, they were extremely professional, and both tours went like clockwork.
I was met by a representative from Anur Tour at my hotel who briefed me on the various activities that I would be doing. She gave me the appropriated documentation that I required and fully explained what would be happening over the coming days.
In particular the two day tour to Bukhara and Samarkand was extremely worthwhile. By flying direct to Bukhara early morning, it certainly maximized the time available that day for sightseeing which was enhanced by a very informative guide.
You also had the opportunity of going direct to your hotel and check in before embarking on the day’s activities. The accommodation was of a very good standard.
In the evening I had dinner in the Lyab-i-hauz area which was a few minutes’ walk from the hotel at a charming Restaurant next to the lake taking in the incredible ambience coupled with a delightful meal and drinks.
The next day involved getting the morning train to Samarkand, about a 3 hour journey, and then spending the rest of the day sightseeing till late afternoon, before being taken to the railway station to get the high-speed train “Afrosiab” back to Tashkent.
The various guides that I dealt with spoke very good English and were extremely helpful and informative.
I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending Anur Tour as there service was excellent, the content of their tours covered all the appropriate sites, and you never felt under pressure even though you covered a great deal of territory.
Uzbekistan - Turkmenistan trip
I used Anur tours for my trip to Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan and I just can say that everything was really well planned and good price. In Turkmenistan by law they contacted a Turkmen company but everything arranged from Anur Tours, very well organized and professional, not even a single small trouble.
I totally recommend it.
Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan tour
We're back in Japan after a wonderful trip to Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan. We want to thank you and Anur Tours for all the arrangements you made for us in Uzbekistan. Everything went smoothly. No hitches whatsoever.

With ANUR TOUR from 2010!!!
I have been using services of ANUR TOUR since 2010 and am very happy about the cooperation. Most of my trips have been solo and this makes one value highly the professional and at the same time friendly relations with the agency. For an individual it is important to feel safe when going to an unknown place. The perfect choice of drivers, guides and accommodation made me feel absolutely like at home. Drivers have always been on time assigned, experienced in work with tourists and knowledgeable about the places to visit. The excellent knowledge of English should be mentioned as well. Guides besides their professionalism have also been very interesting personalities, knowledgeable in various areas.
I have been happy to visit with ANUR TOUR not only the must see sites of Uzbekistan as Samarkand, Bukhara, Khiva and Shakhrisabz, but also Nukus, Muynak, the desert fortresses of Ayaz-Kala and Toprak-Kala, Aydarkul Lake with staying overnight at a yurt camp, and the famous Hazrat Daud Cave.
ANUR TOUR arranges also combined trips within the region to visit neighboring countries – Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan,Tajikistan and Turkmenistan. I took chance to visit Kyrgyzstan and am absolutely happy about the trip.
I can recommend ANUR TOUR as a highly professional and reliable tour operator for the trip to Central Asia.
