Transport services in Uzbekistan
Transport condition in tourism of Uzbekistan
The transport services in Uzbekistan have quite noticeably developed for the last 5 years. In the past, old Mercedes, Neoplan, or Setra buses and old Ssang Yong Istana or Hyundai Grace vans used to serve tourists.
Due to the favorable customs clearance policy of Uzbekistan, Uzbek tourism companies and transport companies are importing more and more buses, minibusses, and vans from South Korea, Japan, Turkey, and China. Thus, tourists do not face any vehicle problems and enjoy their trips!
We suggest the following types of comfortable tourism vehicles depending on the number of travelers:
- 1-2 travelers-sedan cars: Chevrolet Lacetti or Chevrolet Cobalt
- 3-4 travelers-minivans with 9 seats: Hyundai H-1/Starex
- 5-8 travelers-vans with 11 seats: Toyota Hiace
- 9-13 travelers-minibusses with 17 seats: Toyota Coaster or Mitsubishi Rosa Fuso
- 14-23 travelers-medium size buses with 35 seats: Yutong/Zhongtong /Golden Dragon models
- 24-30 travelers-standard size buses with 43 seats: Yutong/Zhongtong /Golden Dragon/Asia Star models
- 31-42 travelers-big size coaches with 52 seats: Yutong/Zhongtong /Golden Dragon/Asia Star models
If some clients require, we can arrange luxury vehicles as well: Chevrolet Captiva (SUV), Chevrolet Malibu, KIA Sedona or Carnival for 1-2 pax and Mercedes Vito or Viano for 3-4 pax. If needed, we can arrange Mercedes W221 and W222 vehicles or even limousine.
