The service offered is just a driver. He could give some basic instructions in English. The drive took about 2 hours one way, went through a beautiful landscape, and included some interesting photo stops. The sights in Shahrisabz are not as spectacular as at other places in Uzbekistan but still worth seeing. For me, it was a relaxing and enjoyable trip before my flight back to Europe the next day.
One of the main reasons to visit the Shahrisabz is to see the mountain pass and the rural area of Uzbekistan. The road starts with the vineyards, fruit trees, vegetables and son. Slowly the elevation will change and the fields will be replaced by hills and eventually by Rocky Mountains. The “Teshik Tosh” or “Rock with the Hole” is the first stop to explore the incredible work made by mother nature. The legendary movie “Apachen” starring the famous Gojko Mitic was shot at the same location because of the resemblance with the American Southwest prairie.
