After breakfast, take in the highlights of Bukhara. Stroll through the central square, Lyabi-Hauz. The square is built around a large pool. Explore the iconic Samanid Mausoleum, oldest surviving Islamic monument in Central Asia and nearby Chashma-Ayub Mausoleum, famous for its pure water spring believed to have healing powers.

Then we head to the Po-i-Kalyan complex. Here you’ll see the ruin of a temple built before Islamic occupation and the Po-i-Kalyan Mosque and Minaret. And finally the Mir-i-Arab Madrasah. Built during the mid 1700’s, it’s still in use as a school today.

A trip to the Ark of Bukhara will finish off your morning. This massive fortress is located right in the heart of Bukhara and is sometimes called a city within a city. The fort was occupied from the 5th century until 1920 and is the town’s oldest monument.
After lunch, you’ll have a choice of either a traditional Hammam sauna or a dancing Harem show in a restaurant.
