The client must have their personal or family documentation in good order (identity card, military documentation, authorization for minors, visas, vaccination certificates, and any other documents that may be required). The agency disclaims any responsibility for visa refusal or the client's denial of entry into a foreign country.

However, if the change takes place 21 days or less before the departure date of the trip for which the customer is registered, or if the service providers do not accept the change, the customer will be subject to the expenses and charges specified under the “cancellation (termination)” section.

Once the trip has started, if a request is made to change the contracted services for reasons not related to the agency (e.g., extending the number of nights of stay, changing the flight), the prices of the touristic services may not correspond to those published on the website that prompted the contract.


The customer may transfer their registration by being replaced by another person who meets all the required conditions for the trip, provided that they inform the selling agency at least seven days in advance and such transfer is possible under the applicable air transport regulations.

The agency must inform the client of such changes as soon as they become aware of them.

Once the tour has begun, no refund is due for services not used by the client due to unforeseeable circumstances or for reasons attributable to the client, except for refunds by the respective suppliers. Failure to provide services foreseen in the travel program for reasons attributable to the organizing agency and if it is not possible to replace them with equivalent ones, entitles the client receive a refund for the price difference between the originally anticipated services and the services actually provided.




If, prior to the start of the journey and due to circumstances beyond the control of the organizing agency, it becomes unable to fulfill any essential service included in the travel program, the client has the right to cancel the trip and immediately receive a refund of all amounts paid, or alternatively, accept a modification and possible price variation.

If the aforementioned circumstances beyond the control of the organizing agency result in the cancellation of the trip, the client may choose to participate in another organized trip of equivalent price. If the proposed replacement organized trip is of a lower price, the client will be refunded the price difference accordingly.


The client or their companions are free to cancel the trip at any time.

i) Such cancellation implies that the client is responsible for the payment of all charges arising from the beginning of the fulfillment of the contract and their withdrawal, as well as a percentage that can go up to 15% of the price of the trip.

ii) If applicable, the client will be refunded the difference between the amount paid and the aforementioned amounts.

From the citadel of Bukhara to the incredible Registan Square in Samarkand, and from the exoticism of Khiva to the modernity of Tashkent, we will wander through history, get lost in narrow streets and alleys, taste the unique delicacies of the region, and be amazed by Islamic architecture, with highlights such as the Minarets of Kalta and Islam Khoja.

Dia 1 Flight city of origin - Urgench

This is the day allocated for the flight to Uzbekistan, so there are no scheduled activities.
Note: the arrival/departure dates may vary, depending on your origin city. If you have any doubts, contact Papa-Léguas for further clarification.

Note: if you wish to buy your own flights, they must be the same (or earlier) than the group flights indicated by Papa-Léguas, since the tour leader will be at the airport waiting for the group and, preferably, they should all leave the airport together. Whenever this is not possible, indications will be given so that the participant can arrange their own transfer to the hotel.

Dia 2 Khiva

We will land in Urgench after having a layover in a European city. The flight will most likely arrive in Uzbekistan early in the morning, then we’ll travel to Khiva. It is a short trip of about 30 minutes.

Be prepared to open your mouth in amazement when you arrive in Khiva. This is a city that no one wants to leave, such is its beauty and charisma.

It is on foot that in the next few days we will explore every corner of this majestic city. We will climb the minaret, walk its walls, marvel at a phenomenal sunset, and sleep in pure silence. We might even be able to dream that we are in another century.

Just like Bukhara and Samarkand, Khiva has been recognized by UNESCO. Whether it's hot (most likely) or cold, there are terraces or shelters to relax and watch time go by... slowly.

There are, in Bukhara, places that are a must-see: the Ark of Bukhara, the Kalyan Mosque, the Mir-i-Arab Madrassa, the Lyab-i Hau Complex, the Minorz Chor or the Kalyan Minaret - a peculiar specimen of Islamic architecture.

The sheer mastery with which the city's buildings were constructed leaves one perplexed. Some buildings are more than a thousand years old, and at the height of the Silk Road trade, Bukhara was the most important religious center in the world.

Around here we will also indulge in great restaurants and taste more of the Uzbek cuisine.

UNESCO said that Samarkand was a "crossroads and a melting pot of cultures." For many centuries, the Silk Road was the world's highway and Samarkandwas at its center.

Samarkand is a city like few others. Its historical importance on the Silk Road has marked it forever. Even today, the city is still the scene of trade, of inspiration, of debate.

Let's imagine that we have traveled centuries in time as we pass through the beautiful Registan Square.

Besides the Registan, we will visit the Mausoleum of Gur-Emir, the Shah-i-Zinda Complex, and the Siyob Bazaar. As this is an important city on the ancient Silk Road, we will also visit a Silk Factory, where even many world personalities have bought carpets.

Dia 8 Samarkand - Shahrisabz - Katta Langar - Tashkent

Today we are leaving Samarkand to visit two distinct locations: Shakhrisabz and Katta Langar.

Shakhrisabz has been awarded the UNESCO seal, is the birthplace of Amir Temur, and is one of the oldest and most picturesque cities in Uzbekistan. It was, for centuries, a center of culture, trade and crafts. The sights we will encounter along the way will also leave us with our mouths open.

High in the Langar valley lies one of the few locations that the Soviet transformation failed to shape. The traditional village of Katta Langar was settled in the late XV century and little has changed since then.

This is a different Uzbekistan, away from the urban environment. Perhaps we are invited into one of the houses, made of clay bricks, to drink tea and make new friends.

Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan, was a major trading center along the Silk Road and remains one of the largest exporters of cotton in the world. Throughout this day we'll discover the best of this fascinating city that oscillates between Islamic influence - mostly visible in the architecture - and also unique Soviet architecture.

We will spend some time strolling through the Tashkent metro - a splendid work of art and one that until recently could not even be photographed.

Other sights we will visit include the Amir Timur Square, the Uzbekistan Hotel, Independence Square, the Hazrat Imam Complex, the Chorsu Market Bazaar. This is the largest market in the capital, where everything is bought and sold: from meat, fruits, vegetables, honey and spices, clothes, baskets and more.

If there is time (and appetite) we will have lunch at the Central Asian Plov Center. Plov is a common dish throughout Central Asia, but the Uzbeks in particular have made it a must-try.

Is this trip for me?

This trip to Uzbekistan is a cultural trip, with cuisine, train travel and human contact. The trip includes relaxing moments such as in Khiva and the magnificent Silk Road cities. There are no particular efforts to highlight, although we have to walk a lot in the cities we visit, because it is on foot and in contact with the friendly local people that we take the pulse of Uzbekistan.

Who will guide this trip?

The tour leader is Jorge Duarte Estevão, who knows the country well. He is a very competent, good-natured tour leader who knows the country and has excellent feedback from travelers on previous trips. Sometimes we also have local guides (that the tour leader hires) to share more specific knowledge of the history and culture.

What kind of accommodation do I stay in during this trip?

The accommodation chosen can range from well-located hotels to guesthouses, both very comfortable and clean. The rooms will be twin/double rooms with private bathrooms. In extraordinary cases when it is not possible to find double/twin rooms, we may use triple rooms.

What kind of transportation do we use on this trip?

The distances are long, so we will favor the most romantic, safe and relaxed means of transportation: the train. Travel by train will be in 2nd, 3rd, or 4th class. We will travel first class only if there is no alternative. The reason is that it is in the lower classes that we come into contact with the locals and see and share their experiences. In case of unavailability of seats on the train, we will opt for vans to reach our destinations. Some short journeys may also be made by bus or taxi. In Tashkent we will spend a lot of time in the metro, which is a real museum of the Soviet era. The end of the trip involves taking an internal flight or (if you want to extend your stay for another day or two) you can travel by train back to the capital - the trip leader can give you more details.

Are arrival and departure transfers included?

Transfers are included on arrival and departure from Uzbekistan - for flights recommended by Papa-Léguas. We will make the transfer by taxi or private van.

Does Papa-Léguas handle the flights?

Papa-Léguas sends you a flight proposal. Note: the arrival/departure dates may vary, depending on your origin city. If you have any doubts, contact Papa-Léguas for further clarification. After you receive the flight simulation, you can choose to buy from Papa-Léguas or another agency, or online.

Where do I meet the group?

On this trip there is a group flight, that is, there is a specific time for arrival and the transfers will be according to the arrival of that flight. Those who choose to buy different flights will have to be at the airport at the same time to take advantage of the transfers, otherwise they will go to the place indicated by the tour leader.

If I sign up alone, do I have to pay an individual supplement?

Not necessarily. If you do not wish to stay alone in the accommodations, you can share them with another person who is signed up. Papa-Léguas may group travelers who sign up individually for the same trip in pairs, by sex and chronological order of registration, and if the number of participants is odd, the traveler who stays alone must pay the respective individual supplement.

Can I drink tap water in Uzbekistan?

It is totally discouraged to drink tap water, but we can eventually refill the bottle with drinking (or filtered) water in hotels or buy larger containers and refill the bottle ourselves.

How much money should I bring for my personal expenses?

Is insurance included in the land program?

It is not included for those departing from outside of Portugal, whether they are Portuguese citizens or not. Contact Papa-Léguas for further clarification. The exception is for travelers not departing from national soil, whether or not they hold Portuguese nationality. It is not included for those departing from outside of Portugal, whether they are Portuguese citizens or not. Contact Papa-Léguas for further clarification. For more information regarding available insurance policies, see our page about travel insurance.

What documentation do I need to go on this trip?

Passport valid for at least 6 months after the date of departure from the country visited. Portuguese citizens do not need a visa to enter Uzbekistan. Passport must be valid for at least 6 months - from the date of entry into the countries visited. For non-Portuguese citizens, the visa can be requested online at https://e-visa.gov.uz/main

Is Uzbekistan safe?

Uzbekistan is a safe country and the people are very friendly. However, like anywhere else in the world, you need to use common sense.

How is the access to electricity, Wi-Fi and communications?

You do not need a power adapter, as the connection is the same as in Portugal. There is cell phone network coverage in most places, but there are also many areas where the signal will be weak or non-existent. It is advisable to consult the contract or contact the mobile operator to confirm roaming prices in Uzbekistan. A SIM card can also be purchased from one of the local operators. Internet access can be provided by 3G in the country's main cities, including 4G in major urban centers.

Why is this trip "CLASSIC"?

These are the trips that balance the comfort to which we have already accustomed our travelers with memorable experiences in every corner of the planet. Whether it's a cultural discovery trip in Japan, accompanied by a Papa-Léguas travel leader, or a trekking adventure in Slovenia, guided by local guides, CLASSIC trips are the ones that offer the best of both worlds – a spirit of discovery and adventure, and a comfortable bed at the end of the day.
