Voice of Travelers to Uzbekistan
On a round trip Uzbekistan
My friend convinced me to take a trip to Uzbekistan with her last summer. She was in love with Uzbekistan, and though I never wanted to go I figured why not, so I joined her. We traveled to Uzbekistan from Estonia via Russia, as there are no direct flights to Uzbekistan from our country. The tour operator booked our ticket with Aeroflot. The plane to Moscow was old, but the second plane to Uzbekistan was quite a nice plane. There were refreshments included with the price of the ticket, both coming to Uzbekistan and leaving. There was a mistake on the ticket regarding the time gate closed flying from Moscow to Uzbekistan, so we almost missed the flight because of the ticket mistake. We were able to have our ticket re-booked. Once we finally made it to Uzbekistan, and the trip was great. I recommend Uzbekistan, but only if you can find a cheap ticket to travel on.
Attending a wedding in Uzbekistan
I traveled to Uzbekistan to visit a family member who was getting married. I jumped at the chance to see Uzbekistan. I first went to a ticket agency and tried to book a direct return ticket from Germany to Uzbekistan. I learned that there was no such ticket available for travel to Uzbekistan because there are no direct flights to any of Uzbekistan's airports from Germany. I had to buy a ticket with Lufthansa to Moscow, and purchase a second ticket with Uzbekistan Airways from Moscow to Uzbekistan. This was the cheapest ticket option that I was advised to book by the ticket agency. Uzbekistan Airways delivered perfect service -- both on the flight to Uzbekistan and on the flight back from Uzbekistan. The wait at the airport in Moscow was a bit long, but not too bad.
