The two-day Samarkand tour is perfect for exploring the city, and then heading out to the lesser-known sights off the beaten path. Start with the famous places of this grand city: Registan Square, Shahi-Zinda, Gur-Emir, and Bibi-Khanum Mosque, all of which are sure to impress with their combination of grand scale and intricate details. The second day takes you farther from the traditional sights of Samarkand, and to the more uncommon places in this city. The Afriasiab Museum is a dip into ancient history, while the Tomb of Saint Daniel and the Mausoleum of Imam al-Bukhari are all about the spiritual life of Central Asia. You’ll leave Samarkand with vivid impressions of Uzbekistan and a greater knowledge of the culture, history, and traditions of this country.
The center of Bukhara is full of historical sites, from the simple to the ornate. Bukhara was built on an oasis, so that water for this desert city was provided through ponds, the last remaining of which is Lyabi-Hauz. The pond itself is surrounded by mosques and madrassas, and as you continue along the tour, you’ll see that there’s a sight around every corner. Alongside the Lyabi-Hauz Ensemble, the Chor-Minor Madrassa (with its distinctive four towers) and the Kalyan Minaret (one of the few structures in Bukhara not destroyed by the Mongols) are some of the most famous structures in Bukhara. Another important and symbolic stop is the Ark Fortress, which housed generations of royal families and is now a history museum. For those who love history, architecture, and art, the one-day Bukhara City Tour is the best tour for getting to know this welcoming city.
