TESTIMONIAL
Jakob
London

"We visited Uzbekistan with 365tours and were completely satisfied with the service 365tours offered in any regard, that is organisation before departure and during the trip. The hotels are first class, whenever possible in the local style, the driver proved very attentive and helpful and the guide was very competent and gave as a lot of information about history, economy etc. as well as happily answering all the questions we asked.

I therefore cannot only recommend a trip to Uzbekistan to everyone as one of the most beautiful countries among the one hundred I have visited, but also warmly recommend 365tours which did a perfect job. "
