Travelling to Uzbek.with a package group

The tour operator has arranged visa issues, flights, hotels etc. Are we going to face similar problems with those travelling there solo? I particularly hate bribing and bureaucratic formalities get me upset. I hope that travelling with a group of tourists will have no problems. Am I right or wrong?

It really depends on your tour operator, so I guess no one has a straightforward answer.

However, if you follow the correct procedures, which can be bureaucratic, and adhere to the rules and common sense, probably you face no bribing issues. Even in case you face one, you can be confident to refuse them and demand a call to your embassy if you are 100% sure that you have done nothing wrong.

This is a rough part of the world, and post-Soviet officials can be very corrupt. If you don't like the thrill, then this might not be your destination. Having said that, I think that if you're not very unlucky, you'll have a good time there. Good luck !

Many thanks for your time. Well I guess that travelling is a little bit thrill - even in Paris, London etc. So I will meet the challenge!
