Hi! Im Farhod. Ive been doing tours for 2 years but in tourism hospitality for 6 years. Well, since i was born I live inside the old walled town. I consider myself as a sociable and a person who loves meeting new people, learns foreign languages and so on. As I am doing my graduation year of Tourism here, i would love to do my Masters in Europe. Any suggestions?🙃 For urgent calls and messages my Whatsapp number is here +998970920312

Farhod was knowledgeable but not very entertaining. We went inside a lot of museums and not many background interesting stories about the city. Overall a bit boring.

This was a most interesting and informative walk. Just what I needed as a solo traveller. Farhod was very understanding of my age limitations. Also the other members of the group.

Farhod is a great guide and clearly has an in-depth knowledge of the city. He is patient and personable in handling the various requests and demands of a diverse group. Highly recommended!

If you need an interesting, informative, and fun guru walk in Khiva, then Farhod should be at the top of your list. He won't burden you with unnecessary details on this and that (unless you insist), but he will have answers to all of your questions. I recommend that you spend time with him rather than buying tickets for various sites during his guidance (museums, etc.), thus, you'll have fun and you'll enjoy Khiva more. Farhod's English is impeccable.
