Tour reviews:
"2 Days Free in Uzbekistan"
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.
