A good opportunity to learn Bukhara will be a two-day tour of the city and country objects. On the first day you can manage without a car, on the second you can rent a car or arrange for a taxi for half a day. You can send us an application and we'll discussed with you the program, rates and terms in details.
The two-day city tour of Bukhara
To spend two days in Bukhara is a great opportunity to know the city and chat with kind and welcoming residents. For a good pastime in this Eastern city there are important at least 2 things: the hotel and the guide. Choose a hotel so that it would be near Lyabi-House and then you will have a good opportunity for rest and sightseeing. The individual tour can be planned in such a way as not to take the entire day by only "dry" stories. As far as possible, we offer our clients to go for a walk around the town in the morning before lunch. After lunch can take a break, during which you can either relax in the hotel or can alone walk along the mall, talk with vendors, look at things made by the hands of Bukhara masters. After lunch you can continue the tour for another 2-3 hours. This is quite good advice, especially if it is a hot day.
