About us

The travel agency Turkestan Travel was established in Samarkand in October 2008 and has been granted the license for tourism activities on April 13, 2009 from the Uzbek National Tourism Committee. The founder of the agency is the MA historian and philologist Anvar Shermatov. The founder has lived in Germany for many years even after completing his university studies in Uzbekistan and has taken further studies and passed them successfully, so that he himself can draw on manifold multi-cultural experiences and therefore can respond very well to the wishes and ideas of culturally interested people and made the itineraries efficient and highly interesting. On this basis, the Turkestan Travel Team wants to present the fairy-tale sights of their own country and of Central Asia to the whole world. Both the founder and the other employees of the agency have professional experience in the field of tourism and extensive historical, cultural and cultural knowledge. The travelers are accompanied by traveling companions who speak the language of the travelers fluently. The travelers from Germany are offered thorough information and training before the trip. Turkestan Travel has many new tourism related ideas. We want to organize various tours, including individual travel or group travel, spiritual journeys (visits of shamans, healers or Bakhshis), language and cultural travel, religious travel (visits to mosques, historic tombs, churches, synagogues), desert and city combination trips, cities - and trekking tours. We organize group tours not only in Uzbekistan but throughout Central Asia, such as Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan and Tajikistan. Turkestan Travel offers world-class service, whatever you want as a traveler. We are equipped with modern means of transport with air conditioning (from cars to buses), with digital photo and video cameras (for the overland travelers with tents, so you do not need to bring your own tent). The city and cultural travelers are led by highly qualified travel companions. In the desert and trekking trips are still native desert and mountain connoisseurs. In addition, jeeps, camels or donkeys are provided on such trips. In addition, we offer
