Uzbekistan Uncovered
April 21-May 6, 2018

Join us as we explore the jewel of central Asia, Uzbekistan - including the heart of the Silk Road - and the UNESCO Heritage sites of Samarkand, Khiva, and Bukhara.

Enter Khiva as the traders would have - through fortified gates leading to a vibrant well-preserved ancient walled city.

Bukhara's old town remains one of Central Asia's best preserved Islamic cities of the 10th-17th centuries. An archaeological preserve, here you'll find more than 140 protected buildings to enchant you.

A visit to the small village of Guijduvan will delight with ceramics created by methods passed down through generations.

Have one night in a comfortable yurt, the traditional home of Central Asian nomads throughout the centuries.

Also discover Samarkand, a breathtaking oasis in the Zerafshan River valley, known as the Crossroads of Culture for its important position on the Silk Road trading route.
