Responses of tourists about our service in the Central Asia:
Dear Mr. Alexander Petrov;
Attached is the form that was given to me in Tashkent for my opinions about your services during my trip to Central Asia (Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan) from 4 October through 18 October. Sorry for the delay in returning the form, but I have been extremely busy catching up after the trip.
Overall, I enjoyed the trip very much!
All of the hotels were as expected for their 4* and 3* ratings. The Grand Turkmenistan was excellent. All of the hotels were in excellent locations. All of the hotels were clean and the staff in each was friendly and helpful. All of the guides knew the history and explanations of the sights. They were all energetic and enthusiastic! They all walked everywhere and climbed every minaret and tower.
Turkmenistan: There is so much to see. There is so much to see with all of the ancient ruins. Both Tatyana and Eugenia were very good guides. They really know the history, art, architecture, and decorative arts. Plus Eugenia was extremely knowledgeable in archaeology, architecture and decorative arts. I just wish the Gonur dig had been included. The drivers there were fine.
Uzbekistan: All of the guides were very good. They were very enthusiastic and energetic. They all knew the general history, the old cities, and the important sights with very good descriptions. And we walked every square inch of the old cities, markets/bazaars, major buildings, climbed every Minaret and tower. Please note I needed to use the internet in Tashkent. The guide (Anastasia) in Tashkent was very helpful in finding an internet cafe and interpreting the words on the computer that were not in English. The guide (Nadia) in the Fergana Valley was very good about the border crossing into Kyrgyzstan. There is plenty to see in Uzbekistan - I liked Khiva, Topraq-Qala, and Bukhara the best. And all of the crafts in the Fergana Valley. The local people were all very friendly in the markets, factories, and handcraft shops.
Kyrgyzstan: I wish I could have stayed longer, at least and extra half day. But what I did get to see was wonderful. The guide (Merishka) was excellent and extremely nice. The driver was very good.
The only problem in the entire trip were the two drivers in Uzbekistan. They did not speak English! This is a very big problem when you are driving long distances and the guide/interpreter is not with you! The one driving from the border to Tashkent spoke very little English. Only enough to get by. The driver for the Fergana Valley spoke no English at all and smoked in the car when I told him not to. No private driver is ever supposed to smoke inside the car!
Just as a personal note: the primary focus of my trips are the ancient ruins, old architecture, decorative arts, and what cities/towns are like today. And the history that relates to these. I was particularly interested in covering the Silk Road routes and cities on this trip.

Apologies for the delay in replying but we have only just returned home from our trip.
We were very pleased with our tour in Kazakhstan. We saw many interesting places and our guide and driver did everything they could to make the trip as comfortable and interesting as possible. The hotels were not luxurious but they were adequate for our needs and the people at the guest house in the national park were very hospitable. The transfers were satisfactory as we were met and dropped off at the airport in a timely manner.
We would be happy to recommend your company to anyone visiting Central Asia and thank you for your attention to our requests and your arrangement of a memorable tour.
Kind regards, Helen firstname.lastname@example.org
We have had a really superb trip and seen lots of fascinating sites. Alexander has to be the best 4 x 4 driver that we have ever met as well as having an excellent knowledge of the region. Olga did her job well and was good company for Valerie when Alexander and I went off exploring.
How we wish that we were still in Kazakhstan (Mangyshlak)!!
Alexander, we do most sincerely thank you for giving us such a superb trip through such amazing terrain – we both enjoyed it immensely, and we both learnt a lot from you. We were also very pleased that we had the same interests - plants, wild scenery, geology and travel – and that we got on so well.
Thank-you once more for letting me have copies of you fine photographs.
The organisation was superb and the food could not have been beaten. We would have no hesitation in recommending “Silk Road Adventures” to anyone!
