I appreciate Roxana Tour for safe, comfortable and beautiful trip. I visited Bukhara and Samarkand alone. Before I came there, I was really anxious because I could not speak Russian or Uzbek. But Roxana Tour prepared good guides and drivers for me and I did not worry or have any trouble, and I could have good time.
In Bukhara, my guide was expert. She showed me not only beautiful old city, Bukhara, but also the lives in Bukhara. I heard beautiful prayer, enjoyed Hammam, and on free time read next to Uzbek children around Lyab-i-Hauz.
In Samarkand, both of I and my guide are university students and we enjoyed talking about school lives in Japan and Uzbekistan. After the city tour, Roxana Tour arranged a traditional Uzbek concert and I joined wedding dance. It was fun and precious experience to dance in Registan, World Heritage Site.
Thank for Roxana Tour, I could enjoy my trip and get relaxed. I still remember breath-taking beautiful decorations of mosques and madrassahs, comfortable wind and warm smiles in Uzbekistan.
I was recently on a 3 week tour of Central Asia with Eco-Expeditions, an American tour group. Although all 5 of the "stans" were great, my favorite was definitely Uzbekistan. And one of the major reasons for this was the use of Roxana Tours as the agent in that country. Uzbekistan is so culturally rich, but to appreciate it, one needs great guides who can speak the language of the tour group. Roxana Tours provided this in all of the cities that we visited. The guides were erudite, up on the history, and spoke loudly and clearly.
But most importantly, our tour leader in country, Jon, worked tirelessly to provide a great experience, not only for me, but for everyone in the group. He made everyone feel important and that no request or need was beyond their capability in providing. It was because of this excellence in PROVIDING, that I would highly recommend Roxana Tours to anyone considering a vacation to this fascinating area of the world.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Dear Humoyun and colleagues at Roxana Tour,
Also on behalf of my fellow-traveller Ron Bosman I would like to express my gratitude for the excellent services Roxana provided before and during our journey into Uzbekistan. Your prompt responses during the inquiry phase, the excellent program offer you made to us, and last but not least the competitive rates and smooth financial handling made us feel confident about the trip.
In fact, we were secretly expecting a royal treatment, and that is exactly what we got! Of course the many wonders of Uzbekistan - the Kalon ensemble, the Registan, the Bibi Khanoum and all the other beautiful mosques, medresses, minarets and mausoleums - are just there to be discovered and admired. By way of very good local guides Roxana added a context that brought the past to life, and scheduled the sight-seeing in such a way that body and mind also found the rest necessary to digest all this beauty. The small private hotels you had chosen - some of which in beautifully restored old villas - added much to the Central Asia experience and offered high quality services. A special thank you for accompanying us to many shows and dinners, which kept us from getting bored one single minute.
And a recommendation for those who want to come to Uzbekistan and trust themselves to the reliable hands of Roxana: do see the classical attractions, but also consider to include the Fergana valley. We were very impressed, not only by the scenery, but also by the visits we made to the silk factory and a ceramic workshop. The latter were absolute high lights of our journey and provided great shopping opportunities!

Dear Mr and Mrs Roberts,
Thank you so much for your letter of July 30. Getchen passed it on to me to respond to you.
I am glad you had an excellent trip and enjoyed the leadership of Gary Wintz as well as the ground operations of Roxana Tours in Uzbekistan.
I have been on this trip and have met Rahmatjon and he is indeed one of the best local guides we have any where in the world. Places such as Uzbekistan are often challenges for us find good local guides so it has been a pleasure to be able to use Rahmatjon services.
I will pass your letter on as our leaders always appreciate hearing when they have done an excellent job.
We look forward to welcoming you on a future Zegrahm or Eco Expedition trip.
With kind regards,
I want to express my satisfaction with the tour you arranged for Kathleen Hurley and I. Both of us really enjoyed visiting these 2 countries -the guides and drivers were very good, very knowledgeable and friendly. They were able to provide us with a sense of the culture and local customs. In addition, the hotels were very nice. I intend to visit Central Asia again and I will certainly use your services. I will recommend Roxana Tours to any of my acquaintances who are interested in traveling to Uzbekistan.
I just wanted to let you know both Elaine and I had a wonderful time in Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan. AS you know, we arrived on 9-10 not 9-9 in Turkmenistan and the tour guide was there!! Thankfully.
I thought the tours were great and the staff was very professional. I thought you did an excellent job managing our schedule. I would highly recommend your company to others and also I will definitely use your firm again the next time I visit Central Asia, my next trip i wan to visit Kyrgyzstan.
Also, thank you so very much for the traditional caps, that was a very thoughtful gift.
Dear Mr. Shulakov,
Our week in Uzbekistan is unfortunately already finished. The blue of the sky and mosques and madrassahs, the smile of the people, the kindness of your country is and will be always in our heart.
We have appreciated very much your choyce of the hotels and restaurants and, above all, your prompt answer to every our request and need: we will do one's best to advertise in Italy the name of Roxana Tour. One particular " GRAZIE " to our guide Mamur who has made precious and unforgettable our experience in Uzbekistan. Good luck to Mamur, Victor and Roxana Tour.

Linda and I were just going through our many pictures from our recent trip to the 'Stans and there were a few that included you at the wonderful dinner you hosted in Bukhara.
We both wanted to thank you again for your hospitality and the incredible lengths to which you went to ensure our entire groups comfort, enjoyment and safety. Your enthusiasm and professionalism set a very high standard.
We travel quite extensively, we're now over 90 countries, and must say that you are by far the best local tour operator that we have ever met and have no hesitation in recommending you to our friends. We did give your brochure to our own travel agent.
We wish you all the best for continued success and have no doubts that Roxana Tour will grow and prosper under your leadership.

I wanted to drop you a quick e-mail thanking you for the outstanding tour you provided. From the time we arrived at Tashkent until we left, we had no problems and everything was first class. Humoyun was truly an outstanding representative of your company and provided us with many wonderful memories. I know my students will talk about this trip for a long time and they enjoyed every aspect of the trip. I think with the success of the trip, we will probably look to come back again in the future. Once I have my summer, 2009 schedule worked out, I will contact you.
