Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a Visa to fly to Uzbekistan?

Yes visa is typcially required depending on your nationality. Some can be done electronically. Please refer to the embassy page for details or this link

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visa_policy_of_Uzbekistan

You may then apply for the visa electronically up to 3 months prior to departure. Please refer to the following link:

https://e-visa.gov.uz/main

What are the flight details for the airline options available?

What if I need any extra nights due to different arrival or departure dates of my own airline?

You may definitely do that and pre-tour or post tour hotel accommodations in Tashkent per person per night in a double room is $120 and in single room is $200.

Can I extend my ticket?

If you wish to extend your trip you may take the land only option and book your own ticket. 

Is this trip appropriate for children/familes?

The trip is definitely family friendly and full of historically rich tours that the entire family can enjoy! 

Is this trip appropriate for people with limited mobility?

We aim to accommodate travellers with disabilities on the trip. However, Uzbekistan still has a long way to go to become accessible to travellers with disabilities, with very little infrastructure at sights or hotels. Smaller hotels are unlikely to have lifts and even larger ones may have floors without lift access. Few locals will have experience in interacting with people with disabilities and assistance from staff isn’t guaranteed. Traditional architecture of old towns in places like Bukhara and Khiva can make getting around challenging with uneven ground, narrow doorways, steps and unrestored brickwork etc. Other hazards include broken paving, open drains, uncovered manholes and exposed utility pipes. Crossing the street in Tashkent often requires using underpasses rather than street level crossings. Metro entrances and underpasses may sometimes look to be equipped with wheelchair lifts but are unlikely to be operational.

For those with mobility restrictions or wheelchair users, getting around will take plenty of patience and determination. If you are travelling to Uzbekistan and have a disability your experience will be greatly enhanced if you can travel with a companion who can help when the infrastructure and customer service aren’t able to meet your needs.

Is tipping expected in Uzbekistan?

Tipping isn't generally expected in Uzbekistan but is considered polite, particularly when considering the low wages earned by service workers. Leaving 5% extra for guides, porters, restaurants workers and taxi drivers is a good idea, but not mandatory.

We've included the tips for drivers/tour guides as part of the all inclusive package for your convenience.
