Dear Victoria,

I want to thank you for my unforgettable trip to Uzbekistan. Going to Samarkand was a dream I had since I was a child, but I never expected to find other cities as wonderful as Khiva and Bukhara.

The hotels were very good and I particularly liked the one in Khiva, “Orient Star Khiva”. And the location of the one in Bukhara, "Sultan". The employees of the hotels were always very friendly and I will never forget the breakfasts of Khiva and Samarkand.

The guides were fantastic: Kamol in Tashkent, Timur in Khiva, Behruz in Bukhara and Rayhon in Samarkand.

The drivers were wonderful, Doniyor in Tashkent, a very nice guy, but a particular mention deserves Iso, who accompanied me for almost the entire trip and even helped me one day that I did not feel very well. He really made me feel good. I'll be grateful if you say hello to him from me.

And the star of the trip was you. The tour was perfect, everything was properly designed, fair times for places I visited, nice and comfortable hotels, impeccable flight and internal routes, local guides with great knowledge of the sites, drivers knew their routes, cars in good condition and clean, etc. All thanks to you. Thank you for welcoming me, thank you for sending me farewell greetings with a detail, thank you for always being in touch with me and my assistant before and during the trip. Thank you for everything, Victoria, you are a great professional and a great host of that fantastic and unforgettable country that is Uzbekistan.

Thank you again and good luck!

Best regards,

Dear Victoria:
I am sending this set of notes on my impressions regarding the recent trip to Uzbekistan that my wife and I took with the assistance of Simurg Travel.

The whole trip was very good and enjoyable. Khiva, Bukhara, Samarkand, and Tashkent were all amazing. Khiva a city as live museum, Bukhara the center of the world a thousand years ago, the mythical Samarkand, and modern Tashkent were all amazing views. History unfolded with every step, traditions, customs and clothing seen in depictions were relived. The Uzbek people very warm and hospitable, all wondering as to who were this couple, from Mexico?, and all very kind.

I have to thank you and all your organization. As a I have told my friends, we felt all the time accompanied, and well taken cared of. From the moment we arrived at Tashkent airport , until leaving Tashkent one week later, we met your personnel, kind and attentive, ensuring that our experience were a fun, enjoyable and very memorable experience. Please thank all of them, Doni in Tashkent, Murzik the driver, and the guides at Khiva, Bukhara and Samarkand (off the bat I remember Umid and Reyhana, but please thank all of them). Their company and suggestions were extremely good to feel the character and warmth of the Uzbek people.

Every place where we ate, outside the Bazar in Tashkent, in Khiva, on the road between Khiva and Bukhara and Samarkand (Sunnat and Qirq Chinor), in Bukhara (at a cafe we named Café-Pepsi because it had no other indication [close to the Samarkand water pipe]), allowed us to taste local food and the savory food, including Shurpa. All were good, but this were truly remarkable.  The custom of the teacup and the three cups (loy, moy, choy, and the legends of floating and sunk tea leaves and bubbles), truly emblazoned the taste of tea.

Thank you once again for all your efforts and successful organization that showed us Uzbekistan.

We just came home after a two week tour of Uzbekistan  starting in Khiva and ending in Tashkent. We organized our trip by ourselves but used Pimenidis Travel and Silk Road Adventures for escort guides, hotels registrations and transportation in Uzbekistan.

Bukhara

 Victoria has set up a wonderful individual mixture of sightseeing according to our wishes. The driver was a great person, professional and my friend  and I always felt safe. The hotels better than expected and everything went off like clockwork.

We never expected the architecture of Uzbekistan’s beautiful cities like Khiva, Bukhara, and Samarkand to move us so much. We'd known of the impressive architecture of Uzbekistan’s ancient cities and we'd seen pictures of its…but nothing prepares us for the scope of some of these incredible structures. It’s hard to express the beauty in words!!!

Vasiliki Malandrenioti

Other than the extraordinary, warm and friendly people we met on this trip the best part about it were our local tour guides. They were top notch, well informed and not motivated to herd us into shopping "opportunities."

Eleni Grigoriadou

I would like to let your companies know that we had a great time in Uzbekistan. Our tour guides, were wonderful! Our driver was great. We learned a lot about your beautiful country and were happy that we decided to take this vacation. We are both glad we used your companies for our tours.

TripAdvizorI want to recommend http://simurgtravel.com and especially their agent Victoria Toltigina, young beautiful and very competent girl who will make your trip perfect.

And if you ask for the best guide in Uzbekistan and probably one of the best in the world Nazira Alieva you will get best service and unique guiding through this beautiful country.
