We could not have been happier with the efficient and polite service of the Veres Vert team. They answered all our questions quickly and clearly, plus when we were on the ground in Uzbekistan we were also given a mobile number to contact for urgent issues. We did have a challenge interacting with the Uzbekistan Airlines website and could not complete payment, the team assisted by making all the reservations and we were able to pay them for both flights and tours in a single payment. The quality of the guides was second to none, I cannot compliment them more highly. An excellent firm that delivers what they promise.
