Anur Tour did a great job of arranging our trip to Uzbekistan, specially last minute change we requested, which was handled professionally by Anur team. All the drivers and guides were helpful and friendly.

When I decided to go to Turkmenistan/Uzbekistan/Kyrgyzstan this year I contacted a number of tour companies to make enquiries as to itinerary and pricing. Aziza from Anurtour was incredibly quick to respond, to formulate an itinerary, and price it up. Her high attention to service continued throughout the trip, from answering our multiple emails pre journey, from our last minute requests during the trip itself, to her post trip emails.

The convoluted LOI process was made very easy for us. No need to apply to embassies overseas; we just sent in a completed form, and photo and Aziza took care of the rest.

The tour itself was great - we had 1 guide in each of Kyrgyzstan and Turkmenistan, and 1 guide in each city in Uzbekistan and were consistently impressed by their wealth of knowledge. Someone met me at 4:45am when I arrived at Bishkek airport, the signs were clearly marked, and the same again in Uzbekistan where we were speedily escorted through customs beating the hordes of people, and in Turkmenistan where our guide physically escorted us on the Turkmen side and through the visa and customs process.

The partner guide on the Turkmen side has their own yurt at the Door to Hell and it was amazing to camp in a tent in 0 degrees walking distance from the great pit. Hotel standards were all definitely livable and walking distance from food and often, bazaars.

All in all a highly recommended tour company. Many thanks to Mumin, Aziza and the rest of the guides and drivers that made our 2 weeks so interesting.

Anur Tour provided outstanding service during our recent visit to Uzbekistan. All aspects of our visit were carefully planned, from transportation to hotels and tours. The drivers and guides were extremely helpful, pleasant, and knowledgeable. The whole staff ensured we had everything we needed and had a great time. Highly recommend Anur Tour is you are traveling to Uzbekistan.

Travelling to this part of the world can be difficult and time consuming, given the relative paucity of tourists to the region. Two of the countries (Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan) have rather onerous visa application processes, and a lack of diplomatic representation worldwide can deter even the most motivated of travellers.

As a result, when we decided to travel here, we decided that a tour would be the easiest and safest option. Many operators from the West seem to charge a significant premium (one other tour group we encountered had 3 guides!) and so Anur provides a very good alternative.

Anur Tours is a local tour agency based out of Tashkent. They have extensive links with operators in the other Central Asian countries (including Owadan, one of the largest operators in Turkmenistan).

Our itinerary was a multi-country tour taking in Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan.
From the get go, the main contact person, Aziza, was extremely helpful and quick in replying to our multitude of questions. The application for the Turkmen/Uzbek Letter of Invitations (to get out visas in country) was done without any hassles and received in a timely manner.

As our tour was multi-country, we essentially had 3 separate country tours with the same guide for the whole time in Turkmenistan and Kyrgyzstan and individual guides in Uzbekistan for each of the cities.

The co-ordination in terms of start to end was almost seamless, with someone always awaiting us as we passed through the plethora of hotels and boarding crossings (both land and airport). Indeed, at Tashkent airport we were expedited through the the very long customs queue!

Mumin is the managing director of Anur Tours, and interestingly, sometimes will be the one picking you up from the hotel/airport as he 'gets bored sitting at desk'! Indeed, he was the one to collect us from Tashkent airport and drop as at the train station for our train to Samarkand.

There were some hiccups with a view extra activities we tried to organise (albeit a bit last minute) but we think this may have been due to some miscommunication.

Overall, we can't recommend Anur Tours enough for your holiday in Central Asia! Many thanks to Aziza for all her help and advice.

We were really impressed with the service provided by Aziza of Anur Tours. Her help and advice enabled my son to get a visa on entry at Tashkent airport when we had almost given up hope of him travelling with us. She met us on the first day and gave us her personal contact number in case we had problems. She organised guides and drivers for parts of our trip. We had a guide and driver in Tashkent, and guides in Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva. We also were driven from Bukhara to Khiva. The local guides spoke very good English and were very knowledgeable about their cities with some fascinating stories. Some of the guides changed money for us on the black market at very favourable rates. We also had a day trip to the Ugam - Chatkal National Park with a driver and mountain guide - this was one of the many highlights of our trip.
Aziza also booked train tickets for us - impossible to do out of the country.
The friendly guides and drivers arrived everywhere on time, gave us an insight into the history of and life in Uzbekistan and often suggested good local places to eat. We were initially concerned as to how it would all work out but the whole trip was memorable, thoroughly enjoyable and everything worked like clockwork. Thank you for all your work, Aziza. I would highly recommend Anur Tours.
