- A very interesting country with wonderfully friendly people. The architecture was as amazing as I had expected and more. Did the two optional excursions which were excellent, one out to three of Ghengis Khan's forts from Khiva and the other to Timur's burial place from Samarkand. All travel arrangements were well planned with friendly drivers and the Tour Leader, Ruslam, was efficient, knowledgable and always willing to do the extra bit. I have reservations about combining folk from a previous tour as we had strong initial resistance from a couple of the people from the Kurdistan trip we stated that they had no need to get to know those joining from London as they had their own group!
