Recently I had the pleasure of meeting some of my special guests during my Central Asia and Caucasus trip. We had lunch together, participated in cooking classes, explored archaeological treasures in Uzbekistan, hiked to mountain tops in Kyrgyzstan, and shopped at local bazaars. We also met with our Young Ambassadors who want to be our future guides.
Organizing travel and events in Central Asia can be challenging without the right contacts and languages. Our personal connections with hotel and museum staff, creative directors, chefs, and local residents mean our clients have access to active archaeological sites, behind-the-scenes, private and after-hours tours, and access to private events with top museum curators and historians at heritage venues. Groups of 10 or more have the option to travel with a personal chef if there are dietary restrictions. We organize visits with contacts from fashion designers to government representatives, with women's collectives and large corporations or niche businesses.
I am very humbled and I appreciate the trust that travelers and travel agent colleagues have placed in me and my company. My team and I will continue working hard providing extraordinary travel experiences to our guests in Central Asia and the Caucasus!
Here is some of the wonderful feedback from our recent travelers:
“Everything was pre-planned with meticulous attention to detail, and (our) truly excellent guide had the knowledge and confidence to respond with complete flexibility to every on-site adjustment to keep the experience fresh and spontaneous… Silk Road Treasure Tours are aptly named, a treasure indeed. We very much intend to continue our exploration of this fascinating part of the world with Zulya in the coming years.” - Brian and Yvonne Green, UK. August 2019
“We just returned from a wonderful trip to the Central Asia Stans - Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and Tajikistan. Thank you, Zulya Rajabova... In all our many years of travelling, we have never received such service!” - Stan and Margery Chodosch, August, 2019
“Our Silk Road adventure to Uzbekistan continued...from Samarkand to Bukhara to Khiva with each place offering their own enchantments....bazaars, mosques, minarets, caravanserais, music and dance performances, and a delightful afternoon spent with a local family. A huge shout-out to Zulya Rajabova and her fantastic Silk Road Treasure Tour for planning such an amazing and memorable trip!!!” - Paul and Barbara Whitehill, September, 2019
“We have recently returned from a 3 1/2 week trip to Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan that was expertly organized and coordinated by Ms. Zuyla Rajabova and her team at Silk Road Treasure Tours. The two of us are seasoned travelers, and yet, we consider our experience to be the trip of a lifetime. Having been born and raised in Uzbekistan, Zulya is incredibly knowledgeable of the area and the itinerary she proposed for us reflected that. Notably, the accommodations, dining, transports and all other aspects of our travel were personally tailored to our requests and exceeded our expectations! We would encourage anyone contemplating a trip to Central Asia to contact Zulya Rajabova and Silk Road Treasure Tours.” - Anne Marie Zack and Larry Keyes, September 2019
Roslyn and I want to thank you for helping us plan an excellent trip to Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Georgia. In each city, our guides were superb. The drivers were all skilled and helpful; the cars very comfortable. The highlights of our trip … were the Uzbekistan cities Samarkand and Bukhara. Both full of history, fabulous architecture, ancient streets. The trip to Central Asia and Caucasus overall exceeded our expectations, and we have you and your team to thank for this. - Roslyn and Fred Kleinsinger, October, 2019
Our WOW List VIP traveler Dr. Sharon Nathan toured Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan on her Silk Road trip. “Zulya was with me every step of the way in planning my trip…I consider guides the most important part of any trip because I am even more interested in life in the places I visit than I am in the sights, and Zulya found me great ones in both Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan…”
"Our Silk Road adventure continued...from Samarkand to Bukhara to Khiva with each place offering their own enchantments....bazaars, mosques, minarets, caravanserais, music and dance performances, and a delightful afternoon spent with a local family. We arrived home late last night exhausted but thrilled. A huge shout-out to Zulya Rajabova and her fantastic Silk Road Treasure Tour for planning such an amazing and memorable trip!!! - Paul and Barbara Whitehill, October 2019
