Full description
Bukhara is considered one of the finest cities in Uzbekistan and is a perfect exemple of an ancient medieval city in Central Asia. Located on the main Silk Road Route, its history is more than 2,000 years old and spans numerous rulers from different dynasties.

This difference in rulers has led to a colossal amount of construction and development devoted and dedicated to influential figures during the respective epochs. This Bukhara city tour covers all the major sightseeing places in Bukhara, along with some of the lesser-known spots.

Some of the most-visited sightseeing places in Bukhara include the Ismail Samani Mausoleum, the Ark Fortress, the Bolo Hauz Mosque, the Poi Kalon Ensemble of Kalan Minaret, the Kalan Mosque, and Mir Arab Madrassah. You can shop for local handicrafts at the trade domes and Lyabi Hauz, with your guide on hand to recommend a good local restaurant for lunch. With time permitting you can be taken shopping, and following your day of sightseeing in Bukhara, your guide will take you back to your accommodation.
