Tour description

Tour by metro 
Today Tashkent is the modern capital of Uzbekistan, which practically has not preserved ancient landmarks as opposed to Samarkand, Khiva and Bukhara. But it has its own sights. One of them is the Tashkent Metro, the first underground transport in Central Asia.

Construction of the Tashkent metro began two years later after the destructive earthquake in 1966. Also the increase of population in the capital caused to the construction of rapid and comfortable public transport system. First line of metro opened in 1977 in honor of 60th anniversary of the USSR and connected the most populous district Chilanzar with the center of the city

Kann die Tour zu 100% weiterempfehlen. Die Geschichte der Metro in Tashkent ist sehr interessant und viele Stationen beeindrucken mit Ihren symbolträchtigen Kunstwerken an den Wänden. Auch die Architektur ist sehr spannend, näher zu betrachten. Mirhovid regt die Walker auch zum Nachdenken über die Kulturen und Werte an.

Mirovoid knows very well is subject but he is not dynamic and not entoudiastic. He talks a lot and always at the same voice level. He didn't interact with us (we were only 3), didn't even say his name or asked were we're from. He also changed the subject of the tour and we learned it only when we arrive.

The guide arrived right on time. Showed us all the main as well as off beat places. Really took the effort in covering many places. Understood the rhythm of the group. Very informative packed with facts and history.

A disappointing experience generally. Mirvohid kept changing the time of the Metro tour and finally turned up very late. But was obviously distracted and rushed through our tour because he had another tour with a bigger group. Would not recommend unless he is interested in what he's doing, certainly had all the information, but body language and delivery were poor!
