Assalomu alaykum, dear travelers!

Welcome to Samarkand Explore!

An impressive number of mythic cities illustrate the history of humanity. Our imagination sees them as legendary and ancient cities. Their names evoke places filled with old houses and buildings, streets and markets bubbling with life.

Among them, oriental cities have a particular spirit and the unique power to bring to life in front of our eyes Princess Scheherazade telling the tales of the One Thousand and One Nights. Many such cities could be quoted, but Samarkand, with its particular charm, represents what is known as the Magic East.

Great travellers have, at all times, dreamed to explore this mysterious city. One of the first known Europeans to travel along the Silk Road was the world-famous Italian merchant, explorer, and writer Marco Polo.

He described Samarkand as a very large and splendid city, where many gardens produced abundant fruits. Exploring this city has gone on ever since, and travellers flow in to visit Samarkand and Bukhara, both situated on the Great Silk Road.

Samarkand Explore was born! The aim of our agency is to help you make your dream to discover Samarkand, Bukhara, and Khiva, another famous city of the East, come true. Members of our team travel through Uzbekistan and its different cities many times a year as tour guides.

Spurred by two main passions, travel and adventure, they founded Samarkand Explore, with the objective to offer another way of travelling and of discovering the country.

Whatever you are looking for while travelling to Uzbekistan, whether it’s a classical stay, adventure, a homestay or trekking, for example, Samarkand Explore always keeps its DNA, helping you establish contacts with the local population, creating responsible trips and being in search of the authentic beauty of the country, alongside the magic of Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva.
