For me Uzbekistan was a lovely, friendly country with amazing historical sights and buildings, especially Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva. Global Connect organised a tour for us, and we were really happy with their services. Hotels, railway tickets, transfers were very well arranged! Anvar who was our contact person gave us good suggestions for activities and sights. Thank you so much!

Since we spoke neither Russian nor Uzbek language, we looked in the Uzbekistan Trip Advisor Forum for suggestions and contacted some travel agencies for quotes. They all made professional proposals. Since we are a budget traveler, we found Global Connect’s offer the most reasonable. They provided LOI at a very reasonable price and didn't make us buy any extra service. Recommended for budget travelers!

I booked a group tour of five people to Uzbekistan with Global Connect. Our guide Davlat was fantastic and really made the history of this fascinating country come alive. The organisation of the tour and payment process was very smooth. I highly recommend booking through Global Connect!

Our trip to Uzbekistan was unforgettable, GLOBAL CONNECT is really good company. We could enjoy our trip thanks to GLOBAL CONNECT's professional guides and drivers. The accommodations which GLOBAL CONNECT selected were located in good places. We were very impressed with Uzbekistan's amazing history, culture and sights, and with very nice people and delicious local cuisine. We are satisfied with all services by this company! Our best greetings to GLOBAL CONNECT! Thank you a lot guys!

Based on their very positive tripadvisor reviews, we booked a 6-day Ancient cities tour package. We used Budget option of this package and enjoyed it very much. I found the service and response of this travel agency to be excellent.

We had a fabulous time in Uzbekistan and would highly recommend it to others

We travel often and typically research and plan the trip on our own. Since we were unfamiliar with Uzbekistan and the best way to travel between areas, we opted to use a professional service .. BEST decision we ever made. This turned out to be a trip beyond expectations and has set the bar high for future travels. Our agent and the team at this tour company were incredible.

This travel company would have to be ..the most organised, most courteous, and user friendly travel company available.They are genuinely focused on real client satisfaction.
Over the years we have used a variety of travel companies, and in the main they have been effective, with a touch of "you get what you pay for"!
However these travel agents have taken Travel Plans to the top of the pole, added those special touches, then thought about us, the clients and added the feeling .."we are your friends..so ask away" we are genuinely here to help!
We have had the most satisfaction from this travel agency than we have ever had, so if you want to see Uzbekistan, then look no further that this company....forget any others stick with the real professionals.

This review might be a bit long but I still don't think it could do justice to how incredible our experience was.
In my fifteen plus years of globetrotting I have never met a nicer pair of travel professionals and only once before have I ended up good friends with one (in Istanbul). I can happily say that it has happened again. Anvar and Sindor are unbelievably nice folks, who went above and beyond to make our holiday fantastic and one that we will remember for years to come.
I found Global Connect after scouring the net for an Uzbek travel agency that was willing to book my train tickets for a modest commission, payable in soum, so that I don't lose out on the exchange rate (pegged officially at less than half the traded value). Anvar also offered to provide us with a letter of invitation, for a fee, with no other strings attached (most other agencies required me to buy an overpriced, packaged tour, or said they only sold LOIs to western nationals). Their visa support service was prompt and extremely professional, and our application was processed very smoothly.
Anvar was very patient with booking our train tickets as well, entertaining my almost daily reminders, even though the official website was in its infancy, didn't open outside the country, and kept failing to release tickets for sale at the stipulated time (45 days in advance for the regulated and 10 days prior for the Afrosiyob). For one overnight train, which was very vital to our trip logistics, he even managed to get physical tickets at the station. All of this was for a very reasonable commission, unlike with every other agency I had found online, that quoted gougingly high prices that were between double and quadruple the actual fares!
From then on, our relationship turned to friendship. Anvar and his friend Sindor surprised us at the station in Samarkand where they were waiting to pick us up and take us to our hotel, helping us change money on the way. They then took us out to lunch, while our rooms were being readied, to try the best of the local fare, and wouldn't hear of us paying. Sindor very sweetly offered to drive us around Samarkand during our stay and forbade us from hailing a taxi in his city. :) We didn't take him up on the offer but it was genuine and heartfelt.
We met the next night for dinner over a long and enjoyable medley of eateries. Again, they picked us up from the Registan and dropped us back to the hotel once it was done, only to show up the next morning at 8 a.m., to take us to the station for our next stop, Bukhara, leaving us with a little souvenir of our time together.
I'm really going to miss Anvar and Sindor. Hopefully, if they ever visit my part of the world, I can be half as good a host to them as they were to us. If you're considering taking the assistance of a travel agency, which is almost unavoidable in Uzbekistan, you couldn't possibly do better than them.

Dear Global Connect! Thank you for the LOI! I didn't expect it so fast. See you soon in Uzbekistan ))))
Eric Lee 11.07.2017 09:17
Everything was pretty well arranged by Mr. Karimov It was quite a memorable trip for the four of us. We do look forward to making another trip with you guys. Thanks a lot.
Antonis Karanikolas 08.07.2017 11:55
Dear Anvar, we would like to say that you arranged a memorable holiday for us. Further to the charges of the trip in which you arranged for us was also very cheap and reasonable compared to other travel agents in terms of money. Hence I thank you from the bottom of my heart that you arranged best trip for me and my family.
Viktor Lazar 15.06.2017 18:25
Very much appreciated your help with letter of invitation. We definitely feel that you got us the best deal. We’ll definitely contact you for future trips.

Our experience with Anvar and Sindor from Globalconnect.uz exceeded by far the expectations of just a professional service. Uzbeki people are the friendliest, most welcoming of my many trips around the world. And the valuable friendship grown with Anvar and Sindor made a mostly memorable experience in Uzbekistan and will stay strong forever. I have never met again any tourist office employees that are wishing to spend full days with us, drive us around, offering many many dinners and gifts all the time, and not accepting anything in return, no matter our insistence. These were not services we had booked (only hotels and visa invitations was our contract) but a genuine kindness from their heart. Last but not least, Globalconnect even undertook some big bank fee charged on a prepayment transfer by the Uzbeki bank - and they were definitely not responsible for that charge. Friendship is far beyond the value of any tour service. Thank you so much guys. We hope to see you again and you're always welcome to our country too.

The company provided us with free local sim cards and we used free two way transfer in Samarkand that was included to their LOI price. We are satisfied with the services and would recommend to all.
Jamie Neutron 05.03.2017 10:10
We can't thank you enough for making our vacation a pleasant experience, with a lot of good memories. We have already told people that you are the best and I recommend you above all others.

Lobreza Pimentel 08.04.2016 10:41
This company provided us visa support just for 45$. They didn't make us buy any extra service from them. The other company that I used first time made me buy the whole tour package. That costed me very expensive. Thank you GLOBAL CONNECT and GOOD LUCK!!!

I had an amazing holiday in Uzbekistan and all thanks to your entire team who had done all great arrangements. Hotels recommended by you at Tashkent and Bukhara were all really good and we didn't face any problem. Driver who was with us for 6 days was really good and he covered most of the sightseeing and we were really satisfied. Hope to go on next holiday with your company.
Iaroslava Borodina 04.11.2015 19:19
I would like to thank Anvar for designing such a wonderful trip to Uzbekistan. It was a great and well-arranged trip. I shall surely consider my future trips through GLOBAL CONNECT. The best part of the tour was stay in Samarkand.
