    Taxi calling at 6 a.m. instead of 7 would deter future bookings from us with . It caused panic and spoilt our entire day. Arrangements with our hotel for an early breakfast were aborted. The driver thought it was a huge joke. Our guide in Samarkland was excellent. She was articulate, thoughtful and demonstrated a thorough knowledge of the subject. The high marks we are awarding are based entirely on her performance. The very slow train home was a nightmare! It was packed with drunks and other undesirables. It seemed to be forever coming in to the station in Tashkent.

    If you have a day available this is the tour for you as it covered all the major sites and included lunch. Guide and driver excellent, booked late as we had a spare day in Tashkent but book early to get the fast train.

    It was a lovely trip and very smooth. The guides Mr. Shodiyor and the driver forgetting his name now were very good.
    From the morning taxi pickup at Tashkent to the train journey and then being met by the guides for the day tour of Samarkand, everything was smooth. We loved seeing Samarkand's mosques, mausoleums and tombs with them because we just had a day there. We enjoyed the lunch in a local house. It was a perfect day from 10 to 5 in the city and then back on the train to Tashkent. The taxi driver was there in time to pick us up. We had a small problem later in Tashkent because we needed Uzbek currency in cash and there was difficulty in finding a place where we could withdraw either Uzbek currency or exchange US dollars and because of language issues we could not communicate clearly with the driver on the directions to a place close to our hotel to withdraw the cash. He was a good person and helpful but I think either he did not know the routes well in Tashkent or it was a communication problem because of language. We ended up driving a bit around Tashkent because of this...
